OBJECTIVE To characterize the variation in plasma lactate concentration among samples from commonly used blood sampling sites in conscious, healthy dogs. ANIMALS 60 healthy dogs. PROCEDURE Cross-sectional study using a replicated Latin square design. Each dog was assigned to 1 of 6 groups (n = 10) representing all possible orders for 3 sites (cephalic vein, jugular vein, and femoral artery) used to obtain blood. Samples were analyzed immediately, by use of direct amperometry for pH, PO2… CONTINUE READING
