Platelet counts were performed in 43 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (CKCS, a breed predisposed to macrothrombocytopenia) and in 10 control dogs using 3 automated systems and 3 manual methods (erythrocyte-lysing agents + counting chamber or evaluation of blood smear). Good correlations were found between platelet counts using all methods (all P < 0.0001; R2(More)
OBJECTIVE The lungs have dual blood supply: The bronchial and the pulmonary circulation. The importance of bronchial circulation is disputed. The purpose of this study was to establish an experimental model to examine the importance of the bronchial artery. DESIGN Comparative porcine experimental study.
