infected with P. testudinis, the difference (8/20 versus 2/23) is significant (P < 0.05 by Fisher’s test). Pasteurella testudinis may play a more specific role in abscesses of turtles than in the other conditions in which it was encountered, as suggested by its occurrence in pure culture and appreciable numbers (3+ or 4+) that was limited to 6 such cases,(More)
OBJECTIVES To characterize progressive patterns of dehydration, stress responses, and water consumption in horses transported long distances in hot weather and to evaluate various measurements in detecting dehydration and stress in transported horses. DESIGN Prospective study. ANIMALS 30 mature, healthy horses. PROCEDURE The following 4 treatment(More)
Chloramphenicol sodium succinate was administered as an intravenous bolus (50 mg/kg) to eight foals which weighed 49-57 kg (mean +/- 1 standard deviation = 53.19 +/- 2.66) each, and were 1-9 days (4.5 +/- 2.56) of age. The drug was rapidly distributed and followed first-order elimination. Mean pharmacokinetic values were: zero-time serum concentration (C0)(More)
The immunotherapeutic effect of low-dose human alpha interferon on viral shedding and clinical disease was evaluated in horses inoculated with equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1). Eighteen clinically healthy weanling horses, 5 to 7 months old, were allotted to 3 equal groups. Two groups were treated orally with human alpha-2a interferon (0.22 or 2.2 U/kg of body(More)
Pharmacokinetic values of sodium amoxicillin (22 mg/kg of body weight) in foals were determined after a single IM injection in 6 Quarter Horse foals at 3, 10, and 30 days of age. Serum amoxicillin concentrations were measured serially over a 24-hour period. The absorption of amoxicillin was rapid and followed a 1st-order elimination. Mean peak serum(More)
Removal of abdominal testes was accomplished in 32 horses ranging in age from 6 to 72 months. Twenty were unilateral and 12 were bilateral abdominal cryptorchids. An incision was made over the superficial inguinal ring, and the extension of the gubernaculum testis was identified and grasped with forceps. Traction was applied to this structure until the(More)
PURPOSE The case of a patient who experienced probable infusion-related reactions to amphotericin B lipid complex (ABLC) but tolerated continued amphotericin B therapy after a switch to an alternative lipid-based formulation is reported. SUMMARY A 28-year-old immunocompromised man with pneumonia, respiratory failure, and neutropenic fever was initiated on(More)
OBJECTIVES Concerns have arisen regarding the equivalence of levofloxacin and some macrolides for treating community-acquired legionella pneumonia (LP). We aimed to compare the outcomes of current patients with LP treated with levofloxacin, azithromycin and clarithromycin. METHODS Observational retrospective multicentre study of consecutive patients with(More)
