Cats suffering from this disease were first recognized in late 1981. During the early months of 1982 the number of cases increased dramatically, and reached a peak in July, when we saw as many casesExpand
Cryptosporidium infection in cats: prevalence of infection in domestic and feral cats in the Glasgow area
The results suggest that cryptosporidium infection is common among young and newborn kittens, and that the disease is usually asymptomatic. Expand
Plasma cholesterol and lipoprotein concentrations in the dog: The effects of age, breed, gender and endocrine disease
Cholesterol concentrations were significantly higher than those of the control group in dogs with diabetes mellitus, hyper-adrenocorticism and hypothyroidism, and the cholesterol and lipoprotein concentrations in the obese population were not significantly different from control dogs. Expand
Investigation of possible leptospiral infection in cats in Scotland.
This appears to be the first report of a serological survey of leptospiral infection in cats in the Glasgow area, and a paired serum sample indicated a recent infection in one of the cats. Expand
Prevalence of Low Automated Platelet Counts in Cats: Comparison with Prevalence of Thrombocytopenia Based on Blood Smear Estimation
Vigilance and careful examination of blood smears is required to identify the few cats with true thrombocytopenia, as low platelet counts frequently are found using automated cell counters. Expand
Haemobartonella felis infection in cats from the Glasgow area
A survey of 155 cats for Haemobartonella felis infection in the Glasgow area revealed a prevalence of 23.2 per cent and organisms identified were mainly coccoid with diameters between 0.63 micron and 1.73 micron. Expand
Comparison of staining and concentration techniques for detection of Cryptosporidium oocysts in cat faecal specimens.
The findings of this study suggest that MZN and A-P staining are both useful for screening C. parvum oocysts in cat faecal materials containing 10(6)Oocysts or more, but FITC-labelled MAb should be used when the number of oocyst is low. Expand
Evaluation of a citrate-based anticoagulant with platelet inhibitory activity for feline blood cell Counts.
The results suggest that the platelet inhibitory activity of CTAD reduced feline platelet aggregation, and offers an advantage over both EDTA and cit-rate for feline hematologic analysis, by decreasing pseudothrombocytopenia and pseudoleukocytosis. Expand
Cryptosporidium infection in farm cats in the Glasgow area
A study of 31 cases of gastric carcinoma in dogs
The most frequent clinical features were vomiting, polydipsia and weight loss, and a predisposition to the tumour was found in the rough collie and Staffordshire bull terrier. Expand
