A 10-year-old mixed-breed dog was examined because of lameness and mutilation of the left hind limb. Neurologic examination revealed ataxia, conscious proprioceptive deficit, muscle atrophy, lack of withdrawal reflex, and hyperreflexia of the patella of the left hind limb. Epidurography revealed right-sided deviation of the dye column at the sixth to(More)
In 1990, Salmonella enteritidis phage type 4 was recovered from two young (less than 20-week-old) lilac-crowned Amazon parrots (Amazona finschi Schlater), one in Tennessee and one in Kansas. The parrot from Tennessee was treated for a plugged naris and anorexia before the S. enteritidis infection was discovered. The parrot from Kansas exhibited signs of(More)
Various different combinations of histochemical stains at differing pH levels on single sections of bovine skeletal muscle were evaluated. The staining sequence that was the most consistent and reliable of those studied included an initial NADH-TR (reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-tetrazolium reductase) followed by an acid ATPase stain at pH 4.15.(More)
Selected peripheral nerves from animals affected with Bovine Progressive Degenerative Myeloencephalopathy (BPDME) were examined by transmission electron microscopy. Changes in axons were both degenerative and reactive in nature and included axonal swelling in conjunction with accumulation of altered organelles and various forms of vesicles. Affected(More)
Histochemical and morphometric analysis of selected skeletal muscles was performed on 14 pure bred, Brown Swiss cattle. Nine cattle were clinically affected with bovine progressive degenerative myeloencephalopathy (BPDME) while five served as controls. Statistically significant trend differences were not observed for the parameters of mean cross sectional(More)
