The pattern of vertical ground reaction force redistribution among limbs during episodes of acute synovitis of the stifle in 12 mixed-breed dogs was investigated as an adjunct to a blinded nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug efficacy study. Without regard to drug efficacy groupings, the redistribution of vertical forces before and during the acute synovitis(More)
Manipulation of the reproductive tract can cause inflammatory processes in the endometrium and release of cytokines and prostaglandins. It has been shown that PGF2α has direct negative effects on embryonic survival and development. Treatment with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (e.g., ibuprofen lysinate, flunixin meglumine) might improve pregnancy rates(More)
The ethyl acetate synthesis via reactive distillation is studied theoretically and experimentally using different catalytic packings. Experiments are carried out in laboratory scale in a 50 mm diameter column, packing height of 3 m, and in semiindustrial scale in a 162 mm diameter column, packing height of 12 m. The experimental set-up is similar for both(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the toxicity of ecadotril in dogs. ANIMALS 74 healthy 4- to 11-month-old Beagles. PROCEDURE To determine acute toxicity, ecadotril (2,000 mg/kg of body weight, PO) in a gelatin capsule was administered once to 2 dogs, and dogs were observed for 2 weeks. To determine subchronic and chronic toxicity, ecadotril was administered every(More)
In this trial, the effect of supplementary administration of the opioid antagonist Naloxone was tested, in comparison to infusion of Ringer's-solution only, in the treatment of hypovolemic shock in cows suffering from right-sided abomasal displacement. Twenty cows were selected by several criteria (pulse rate greater than 95/min; plasma chloride content(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate efficacy and safety of the calcium channel antagonist nimodipine in dogs with idiopathic epilepsy. DESIGN Prospective clinical trial. ANIMALS 10 dogs with idiopathic epilepsy. Dogs were included if seizures were inadequately controlled despite treatment with barbiturates and serum phenobarbital concentrations were > 25(More)
Comprehensive studies on the n-hexyl acetate synthesis by heterogeneously catalyzed reactive distillation are presented. Reactive distillation experiments were carried out both in laboratory and semi-industrial scale with different catalytic packings. Several variants of a basic column set-up and the influence of the most important process parameters were(More)
