Prevalence of and risk factors associated with atherosclerosis in psittacine birds.
TLDR
Age, female sex, and 3 genera appeared to be positively associated with the presence of advanced atherosclerotic lesions in psittacine birds, and this information may be useful in clinical assessment of the cardiovascular system and patient management. Expand
Intraocular Pressure in Captive Black-footed Penguins (Spheniscus demersus) Measured by Rebound Tonometry
TLDR
Rebound tonometry appears to be a safe and repeatable method to obtain IOP values in black-footed penguins and significant difference between the IOP of male and female penguins was seen in both eyes when the dog or horse setting was used. Expand
Laboratory blood analysis in Strigiformes-Part I: hematologic reference intervals and agreement between manual blood cell counting techniques.
TLDR
Disagreements observed between manual counting techniques suggest that technique-specific RI should be used in Strigiformes, as most boreal owl species exhibited a lower WBC count than other species. Expand
Comparison of the tibia plateau angle between small and large dogs with cranial cruciate ligament disease.
TLDR
Comparing the conformation of the proximal tibia evaluated on a medio-lateral radiograph between small and large dogs with cranial cruciate ligament disease (CCLD) and overall the interobserver variability was low suggesting that agreement was good, and small dogs with CCLD have a steeper tibial plateau than large dog group.

Association of Plasma Lipid Levels With Atherosclerosis Prevalence in Psittaciformes
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the differences observed in prevalence among species of the psittacine genera may partly be explained by differences in plasma total cholesterol levels, and support the use of Quaker parrots as models for studying atherosclerosis and dyslipidemia. Expand
Association between urine osmolality and specific gravity in dogs and the effect of commonly measured urine solutes on that association.
TLDR
Results indicated a strong linear correlation between osmolality and USG in urine samples obtained from dogs with various pathological conditions, and ketonuria had a small negative effect on that correlation. Expand
Branchial Cysts in Two Amazon Parrots (Amazona species)
TLDR
These 2 cases are the first documented in parrots and appear similar to second branchial cysts reported in adult humans, and a carcinoma was present in situ within the epithelium of case 1, and the cyst in case 2 was secondarily infected. Expand
Experimental Diet-Induced Atherosclerosis in Quaker Parrots (Myiopsitta monachus)
TLDR
This experiment demonstrates that in Quaker parrots fed 1% cholesterol, advanced atherosclerosis can be induced relatively quickly, and lesions resemble those found in other avian models and humans. Expand
Laboratory blood analysis in Strigiformes-Part II: plasma biochemistry reference intervals and agreement between the Abaxis Vetscan V2 and the Roche Cobas c501.
TLDR
This study suggests that the Vetscan has acceptable clinical performance in Strigiformes for some analytes and highlights discrepancies for several analytes. Expand
HEMATOLOGIC, PLASMA BIOCHEMISTRY, AND ACID-BASE ANALYSIS OF ADULT NEGEV DESERT TORTOISES (TESTUDO WERNERI) IN ISRAEL
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of blood analytes for the Negev Desert tortoise; however, the data do not fully meet the strict ASVCP guidelines required for reference range determination and thus can only provide a rough estimate for evaluating the health status of NegeV Desert tortoises using similar testing methodology.
