Esophageal carcinomas in two cats are described. The main clinical sign was regurgitation of food and fluids. Radiographic examination revealed severe esophageal abnormalities in both cats. In the second cat, the radiographic appearance of the esophagus together with the esophagoscopic findings provided a presumptive diagnosis of neoplasia. Histologic(More)
OBJECTIVES To reclassify canine small intestinal and cecal leiomyoma (LM) and leiomyosarcoma (LMS) into smooth muscle and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) using histologic and immunohistochemical (IH) analysis and to report clinical findings and survival data. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review of cases. ANIMALS Dogs (n=47) with small intestinal(More)
Female pet dogs exhibiting either glucose intolerance alone or glucose intolerance and acromegaly were investigated. Some dogs developed the disorder(s) during dioestrus and some animals developed the disorder(s) after they were given medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). Elevated fasting plasma glucose levels (12.3 +/- 1.9 mM, mean +/- SEM) were accompanied(More)
BACKGROUND Dogs develop germ cell tumors of the testis at a relatively high rate. It is not known to what degree these tumors resemble various human testicular neoplasms. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The epidemiology and morphology of a series of spontaneous canine testicular tumors, collected between 1985 and 1991, was analyzed, and compared with human testicular(More)
This paper presents puppy mortality and postmortem findings for a birth cohort of boxer puppies born in the Netherlands between January 1994 and March 1995. In all, 457 litters were registered, of which 414 (90.6 per cent) were involved in the study. The 414 litters contained 2629 puppies, a mean litter size of 6.4 puppies. Of the 2629 puppies 571 (21.7 per(More)
Six cases of capillary haemangiomas in the skin and one case in the tongue of dogs are described. There was no breed or age predisposition (average age was 8.9 years), but there was a prevalence of male dogs. In three cases, cavernous haemangioma-like structures were also found, so these tumours are considered to be combined capillary and cavernous(More)
The aim of this project, which ran from 1 January 1994 to 1 January 1999 (and which will be continued up to 2004), was to study mortality, disease incidence, and risk factors in a birth cohort of purebred boxer dogs born between January 1994 and February 1995 in the Netherlands (n = 2629). The ancestry of the boxer dogs in the cohort was considered a major(More)
