The incidences of fractures and soft tissue injuries during 68397 starts of thoroughbred horses at New York Racing Association tracks were analyzed concerning track condition, dirt and turf tracks, environmental conditions, length of races, location of fractures on the track, and age of horses. It was concluded that the conditions evaluated are of no(More)
In a dog with renal dysplasia and secondary hyperparathyroidism, loose teeth resulted from excessive resorption of alveolar bone. Sharpey's fibers, still anchored in the cementum, were lost in the replacing fibrous tissue and few fibers found their way to distant bone fragments. The alveolar bone is the site of predilection for the excessive, generalized(More)
Chronic ingestion of excessive amounts of fluoride from commercial fox food is associated with agalactia in vixens resulting in the starvation deaths of large numbers of kits in three fox herds. Evidence of infectious disease or poor management could not be found and a causal relationship between fluoride and high kit mortality is suggested.
Maxillofacial trauma in cats often results in mandibular symphyseal separation in addition to injuries of the caudal mandible and/or temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Caudal mandibular and TMJ injuries are difficult to access and stabilize using direct fixation techniques, thus indirect fixation is commonly employed. The immediate goals of fixation include(More)
Lead poisoning continues to be a problem in cattle. The toxicologic significance of blood lead levels requires the differentiation of background blood lead from toxic levels. A ten-fold variation of background blood lead levels reported in previous studies has prompted us to conduct our own survey. Our results indicate significantly lower background blood(More)
