Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth in dogs with chronic intestinal disease.
It is suggested that SIBO may be observed in dogs of many breeds, without an obvious primary cause, and that, although results of indirect tests may be suggestive of SIBO, bacterial culture of duodenal juice samples remains necessary for definitive diagnosis. Expand
Intestinal permeability and function in dogs with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
It is shown that SIBO is commonly associated with mucosal damage not detected on histological examination of intestinal biopsies, and that changes in intestinal permeability following oral antibiotics may be used to monitor response to treatment. Expand
Emesis in dogs: a review
The physiology of the vomiting reflex, causes ofEmesis, the consequences of emesis and the approach to clinical management of the vomit dog are outlined, and the applicability of diagnostic testing modalities and the merit of traditional approaches to management are discussed. Expand
Idiopathic immune-mediated hemolytic anemia: treatment outcome and prognostic factors in 149 dogs.
Quantitative and qualitative immunohistochemistry of T cell subsets and MHC class II expression in the canine small intestine.
It is shown that the small intestinal mucosa of the dog contains similar leucocyte populations to those found in other species, and suggests that these cells may play similar roles in gastrointestinal immunity. Expand
Treatment of acquired myasthenia gravis associated with thymoma in two dogs.
Two cases of myasthenia gravis associated with thymoma are reported, both were female German shepherd dogs and theThymoma was surgically resected, resulting in recurrent episodes of aspiration pneumonia. Expand
Juvenile nephropathy in 37 boxer dogs.
This paper documents features of the presentation and progression of juvenile nephropathy in boxer dogs, the first reported case series of its kind. Expand
Canine major histocompatibility complex genes DQA and DQB in Irish setter dogs.
This breed was of interest, since it shows a high prevalence of gluten sensitive enteropathy (GSE), which may be a useful animal model for celiac disease (CD) of man, and few of the alleles found in Irish setters were identical to those previously detected in other breeds. Expand
Trilostane treatment of a dog with functional adrenocortical neoplasia.
A 13-year-old, crossbreed dog presented with a history of recent onset polydipsia, progressive lethargy, weakness and reduced appetite and medical management with trilostane rapidly improved the clinical signs and normalised the serum chemistry. Expand
Humoral and cell-mediated responses to Malassezia pachydermatis in healthy dogs and dogs with Malassezia dermatitis
The in vitro proliferative responses of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from seven healthy basset hounds exposed to Malassezia pachydermatis antigen (500 μg/ml) exceeded (P<0.05) those ofExpand
