Twelve calves from over veal calf farm were divided into two groups: group I-6 calves which developed typical signs of enzootic bronchopneumonia and group II-6 calves with no symptoms of the disease. Both groups of calves were compared with respect to changes in several hematological parameters. Some functions of peripheral blood leukocytes as random(More)
We examined the effect of a single intravenous dose of flumetasone (SAID) and meloxicam (NSAID) treatment of calves with experimentally-induced localized lung inflammation on immunological and hematological variables such as total protein, gamma globulin, hemoglobin (Hb) concentrations, alkaline phosphatase activity, packed red cell volume (PCV), red blood(More)
The influence of treatment with steroidal (SAIDs) and non-steroidal (NSAIDs) anti-inflammatory drugs on inflammatory markers in thirty, 6-8 week old calves with induced bronchopneumonia was investigated. Animals received a single intravenous treatment with meloxicam (0.5 mg/kg body weight), flumethasone (0.05 mg/kg body weight) or sterile 0.9% NaCl (10 ml(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of Uncaria tomentosa (Vilcacora) on the routine haematological parameters and phenotype of peripheral blood leukocytes and their phagocytic activity in calves. The study was performed on 20 calves, divided into two equal groups. The calves from group I were treated orally with 4200 mg/calf/d of Uncaria(More)
The investigations were done on 12 calves (age: 3 to 8 weeks). Six calves received (with an interval of two weeks) two intramuscular injections, each of which contained 5.75 mg selenium and 75 mg alpha-tokopherolacetate (Ursoselevit). Subsequently, they showed higher blood leukocyte counts (with less variation; p < 0.05), a greater phagocytosis index and(More)
The study was performed on 18 Black-and-White Lowland Breed calves with clinical signs of enzootic bronchopneumonia divided into three groups and respectively treated with oxytetracycline and meloxicam--Group I (9 animals); oxytetracycline and flunixin meglumine--Group II (3 animals); and oxytetracycline only--Group III (6 animals--control). The following(More)
The aim of this paper was to compare the effect of flumethasone and meloxicam in combination with oxytetracycline on clinical and immunological parameters of calves suffering from enzootic bronchopneumonia. The study was performed on 30 Black-and-White Lowland Breed calves with clinical signs of enzootic bronchopneumonia divided randomly into three equal(More)
The validity of spinal fusion for lumbar instability is considered. Some difficulty lies in the interpretation of the term instability. The differing interpretations in the clinical, radiologic, and biomechanical contexts are discussed. These interpretations may only be reconciled if the confusion between hypermobility and instability is removed and some(More)
