Changes in blood coagulation parameters of red deer (Cervus elaphus) experimentally infected with malignant catarrhal fever.
Changes in blood coagulation parameters were followed in four red deer experimentally infected with malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) of deer, finding that increases in fibrinogen were compatible with the acute phase response. Expand
Induction of diabetes in PVG/c strain rats by manipulation of the immune system.
The observations implicate the immune system in diabetes generation and are consistent with an immune mediated pathogenesis as the underlying cause of the islet cell destruction in female rats of the PVG/c strain. Expand
A comparative study of diagnostic tests for the assessment of herd magnesium status in cattle.
These findings support clinical impressions that FCR and CUM are more sensitive than S-Mg as predictors of a positive production response to Mg supplementation of dairy cows and suggest that mean FCR or CUM >1.0 mmol/l indicate that a positive response is likely. Expand

This functional test is less sensitive than serum bile acids or the ammonia tolerance test in the recognition of hepatic encephalopathy caused by portosystemic anomalies, and continues to be useful in the functional assessment of the liver as long as the dye remains available to veterinarians.

Sporidesmin toxicity in rabbits: biochemical and morphological changes.
The similarity between hepatobiliary lesions observed in sheep and rabbits with experimental sporidesmin toxicity suggests that the rabbit would be a useful model for studying methods of treatment and prevention of "facial eczema" in ruminants. Expand
Blood coagulation parameters in clinically normal intensively farmed red deer (Cervus elaphus) and fallow deer (Dama dama).
storage of plasma at -15 degrees C resulted in small increases in activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) for both species, and in the one stage prothrombin time (OSPT) of fallow deer, between days 1 and 30. Expand
A Mechanobullous Disease with Sub-basilar Separation in Brangus Calves
The occurrence of a mechanobullous disease in Brangus calves that resembled the recessively inherited form of dermolytic bullous dermatosis as described in man is reported, and the history of inbreeding supports a genetic etiology, most likely characterized by recessive inheritance. Expand
Functional and morphological studies on blood platelets in a thrombasthenic horse.
A four-year-old Standardbred gelding presented with a 3.5 year history of intermittent epistaxis and spontaneous submucosal petechiae and ecchymoses in the nares and the mouth was presented, and a diagnosis of a thrombasthenia-like syndrome possibly equivalent to Type II Glanzmann's throm B2 in people was made.
