BACKGROUND An excess of intra-abdominal fat is observed frequently in dogs with hyperadrenocorticism (HAC). Adipokine dysregulation is a possible cause of complications related to visceral obesity, but little information is available on adipokine in dogs with naturally occurring HAC. OBJECTIVES To examine the differences in the circulating adipokines(More)
BACKGROUND Limited information is available about the role of adipokines in the development and progression of acute pancreatitis (AP) in dogs. OBJECTIVES To determine whether the circulating concentrations of adipokines differed between healthy dogs and dogs with AP, and whether the circulating concentrations differed between AP survivors and AP(More)
BACKGROUND The concentrations of circulating adipokines in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) have not been investigated in detail. OBJECTIVES To determine whether serum concentrations of adipokines differ between healthy dogs and dogs with MMVD and whether circulating concentrations depend on the severity of heart failure resulting from(More)
