Vision is dependent on ordered neuronal representations or maps of visual space. These maps depend on precise connections between retinal axons and their targets cells. In mammals, nerve fibres from right and left eyes produce congruent maps of contralateral visual space in adjacent layers of the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). We have identified an(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate antiplatelet effects and pharmacodynamics of clopidogrel in cats. DESIGN Original study. ANIMALS 5 purpose-bred domestic cats. PROCEDURE Clopidogrel was administered at dosages of 75 mg, p.o., every 24 hours for 10 days; 37.5 mg, p.o., every 24 hours for 10 days; and 18.75 mg, p.o., every 24 hours for 7 days. In all cats,(More)
BACKGROUND Circulating plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) concentration facilitates emergency diagnosis of congestive heart failure (CHF) in people. Its utility to discriminate between dyspneic cats with CHF vs. primary respiratory disease requires further assessment. Our objectives were to determine if NT-proBNP (1) differentiates(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether ticlopidine exerts an antiplatelet effect, estimate the pharmacodynamics of ticlopidine, and evaluate any acute adverse effects associated with administration of ticlopidine in cats. ANIMALS 8 domestic purpose-bred sexually intact male cats. PROCEDURE Ticlopidine was administered orally (50 mg, q 24 h; 100 mg, q 24 h; 200(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To compare the effects on oxygen saturation as measured by pulse oximetry (SpO2) and ECG changes of endoscopy alone, sedation followed by endoscopy, and sedation followed by endoscopy with supplemental oxygen (O2) during upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy. STUDY DESIGN Randomized trial. SETTING Outpatient gastroenterology clinic at a(More)
BACKGROUND B-type natriuretic peptide concentrations reliably distinguish between cardiac and respiratory causes of dyspnea, but its utility to detect asymptomatic cats with occult cardiomyopathy (OCM) is unresolved. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES Determine whether plasma N terminal probrain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) concentration can discriminate(More)
Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is the most common congenital cardiac disease in the dog and generally leads to severe clinical signs, including left-sided congestive heart failure. Historically, definitive treatment consisted of surgical ligation; however, the use of vascular occlusion devices by minimally invasive techniques has gained popularity in(More)
Superior vena caval syndrome is a rare, but reported complication of transvenous pacemaker implantation in humans. This syndrome can occur secondary to fibrotic and/or thrombotic obstruction of venous blood flow into the right atrium. The therapeutic approach depends on the suspicion of the presence of an active thrombus and may include antithrombotics,(More)
BACKGROUND Owners' perceptions and priorities regarding quality of life (QoL) are important considerations given the unknown efficacy of many commonly administered medications, stress of hospital visits, difficulties providing home care, and personal choices including euthanasia. OBJECTIVE To describe the relative importance of quality versus quantity of(More)
A 4-month-old, intact female mixed-breed dog presented to the Purdue University Veterinary Teaching Hospital for evaluation of a cardiac murmur. A large left-to-right patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) was diagnosed and interventional correction was achieved with a commercially available peripheral vascular occlusion device (VOD). The VOD is composed of a(More)
