To investigate the degree of genetic variability of bovine leukemia virus (BLV) strains circulating in Croatia, 29 isolates from the six largest dairy farms were examined by PCR for a segment of the gp51 env gene, followed by DNA sequencing and phylogenetic analysis. The nucleotide sequences were compared with other previously characterized BLV strains from(More)
Equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) is a worldwide spread pathogen of horses. It can cause abortion, respiratory and neurological disease and consequentially significant economic losses in equine industries. During 2009, two outbreaks of EHV-1 were confirmed in two stud farms in Eastern Croatia. The first outbreak occurred in February following the import of(More)
High-rise syndrome was diagnosed in 119 cats over a 4-year period. 59.6% of cats were younger than one year, and the average height of the fall was four stories. High-rise syndrome was more frequent during the warmer period of the year. 96.5% of the presented cats, survived after the fall. 46.2% of cats had fractured limbs; 38.5% of fractures were of the(More)
Bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) causes a disease that has a wide range of clinical symptoms in domestic and wild ruminants. It is a major problem in cattle and causes significant economic losses in the cattle industry. The virus infects bovines of all ages and causes both immunosuppression and reproductive, respiratory and digestive disorders. Cattle(More)
The virus neutralisation test is used for the quantitation of specific antibodies in serum samples. However, the success of the test depends on the quality of samples. In the case of poor quality samples, a cytotoxic effect can be observed and the results of the test can be compromised. Additionally, the cytotoxic effect limits the use of different(More)
The pharmacokinetics of lidocaine deals with the measurement of lidocaine concentration in the blood and its changes over time. The toxicity of lidocaine is a function of its peak plasma concentration, which in turn depends on several factors including total dose and rates of systemic absorption and elimination. The aim of the study was to assess serum(More)
BEDEKOVIĆ, T., N. LEMO, I. LOJKIĆ, Ž. CVETNIĆ, Ž. ČAČ, J. MADIĆ: Bovine viral diarrhoea: a seven year old persistently infected cow a case report. Vet. arhiv 82, 637-643, 2012. ABSTRACT In this report a persistently infected cow was under surveillance for three years. In that period the level of antibodies and level of viremia were determined. Persistent(More)
A three-year-old male Labrador retriever was presented at the Clinic of Internal Medicine, University of Zagreb, Croatia. The owner reported that the dog was ataxic, and this was evident by its markedly unsteady, swaying gait. The dog also had difficulty rising and fell several times while trying to stand. It had come into contact with the explosive,(More)
