Sensitivities of screening tests and abdominal ultrasonographic evaluation for the detection of portosystemic shunting were evaluated. Prognosis for surgically treated shunts was also evaluated. Results indicated that both paired serum bile acids and blood ammonia(More)
Feline portosystemic shunts (PSSs) are best managed with surgical intervention. To accomplish this task, veterinarians must be able to identify cats in which a PSS is a strong possibility. Cats exhibit clinical signs that are both similar to and different from the signs of PSSs in dogs. Options for imaging feline PSSs include ultrasound, scintigraphy, and(More)

Hyperadrenocorticism is a common canine disorder resulting from a functional pituitary or adrenocortical tumor. Eighty percent to 85% of canine cases of hyperadrenocorticism are caused by a tumor in either the anterior or intermediate lobe of the pituitary. Differentiation tests (e.g., endocrine tests, advanced imaging studies) are designed to distinguish(More)
