Protein-losing enteropathies in dogs.
A laparoscopic-sutured gastropexy technique in dogs: mechanical and functional evaluation.
TLDR
This laparoscopic-sutured gastropexy technique had appropriate mechanical and functional characteristics with limited morbidity and provides adhesion strength comparable with other gastropeXY techniques tested at 10 weeks postoperatively.
Fractional excretion tests: a critical review of methods and applications in domestic animals.
TLDR
Fractional excretion of a constituent by the kidney is the fraction of the amount filtered by the glomerulus, which is excreted into urine, and is expressed as the ratio of the clearance of a given electrolyte to creatinine clearance.

TLDR
Advances in laboratory tests that are available for the general practitioner for diagnosis of GI diseases in dogs and cats are focused on.
Effect of the proton pump inhibitor omeprazole on the gastrointestinal bacterial microbiota of healthy dogs.
TLDR
It is suggested that omeprazole administration leads to quantitative changes in GI microbiota of healthy dogs as well as the overall phylogenetic composition of the gastric and duodenal microbiota.
Comparative field evaluation of marbofloxacin tablets in the treatment of feline upper respiratory infections.
TLDR
One hundred and three cats presenting with clinical signs of feline acute upper respiratory infection were selected from Belgium, France and the Netherlands in a randomised comparative field trial to study the effects of marbofloxacin and amoxycillin-clavulanic acid on bacteria isolation and response rates.
Comparison of the techniques of evaluation of urine dilution/concentration in the dog.
TLDR
Refractometry is the best technique for routine evaluation of urine concentration/dilution when osmometry is not available and should not be used for dog urine.
Development and validation of a novel clinical scoring system for short‐term prediction of death in dogs with acute pancreatitis
TLDR
Canine Acute Pancreatitis Severity score was developed to predict short‐term death, integrating 4 independent risk factors in a weighted way, and 2 scoring systems are proposed that allow early and accurate prediction of short-term death in dogs with AP.
Disseminated nocardiosis caused by Nocardia abscessus in a dog.
TLDR
This case demonstrates that N. abscessus may be mistaken for a fungal organism based on its cytologic appearance and underscores the importance of using molecular techniques for the diagnosis of suspected fungal diseases.
