OBJECTIVES To estimate prevalence and risk factors for diagnosis with hyperadrenocorticism in dogs attending primary-care veterinary practices in the UK from 2009 to 2014. METHODS Cases were identified by searching the de-identified electronic patient records from UK primary-care veterinary practices participating in the VetCompass Programme. RESULTS The estimated prevalence for hyperadrenocorticism diagnosis in dogs was 0·28% (95% confidence interval: 0·25 to 0·31). Multivariable logistic… 
Hypoadrenocorticism in dogs under UK primary veterinary care: frequency, clinical approaches and risk factors
TLDR
This is the first epidemiological study to report on hypoadrenocorticism in dogs within the UK primary‐care population and provides benchmark data of current veterinary activity relating to hypoadenocorticist in primary-care practices.
Survival analysis of 219 dogs with hyperadrenocorticism attending primary care practice in England
TLDR
This study shows that survival from diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism appears fair for many dogs and provides primary care practitioners with relatable benchmark prognostic figures.
Lipoma in dogs under primary veterinary care in the UK: prevalence and breed associations
TLDR
Lipoma predisposition of larger bodyweight individuals within breed/sex suggests that being overweight or obese may be a predisposing factor but would need further work to confirm.
Gastric dilation‐volvulus in dogs attending UK emergency‐care veterinary practices: prevalence, risk factors and survival
TLDR
Prevalence, risk factors and clinical outcomes for presumptive gastric dilation-volvulus diagnosed among an emergency-care population of UK dogs and certain large breeds were highly predisposed.
Canine hyperadrenocorticism associations with signalment, selected comorbidities and mortality within North American veterinary teaching hospitals
TLDR
Of the select comorbidities investigated, dogs withhyperadrenocorticism were at increased risk for concurrent diabetes mellitus, urinary tract infection, urolithiasis, hypertension, gall bladder mucocoele and thromboembolic disease compared with dogs without hyperadrenOCorticism.
Cushing’s syndrome—an epidemiological study based on a canine population of 21,281 dogs
TLDR
The data support the existence of sex predisposition, with the highest risk for neutered females, and the risk of developing HC related to breed, gender, and sexual status.
Corneal ulcerative disease in dogs under primary veterinary care in England: epidemiology and clinical management
TLDR
Breeds such as the Pug and Boxer, and conformational types such as brachycephalic and spaniels, demonstrated predisposition to CUD in the general canine population and breeding focus on periocular conformation in predisposed breeds should be considered in order to reduce corneal disease.
Frequency and risk factors for naturally occurring Cushing's syndrome in dogs attending UK primary-care practices.
TLDR
Demographics reported are supportive of previous work and additional novel associations identified, such as the Border terrier, could enhance the index of suspicion for veterinarians.
Clinical and Clinicopathological Features in Dogs with Uncomplicated Spontaneous Hyperadrenocorticism Diagnosed in Primary Care Practice (2013-2014).
TLDR
Clinical and clinicopathological abnormalities in canine spontaneous hyperadrenocorticism and the relationship between patient size and those findings appeared to be similar to those historically reported.
Prevalence and risk factors associated with systemic hypertension in dogs with spontaneous hyperadrenocorticism
TLDR
Systemic hypertension is common in dogs with HAC and is frequently severe, and blood pressure should be routinely assessed in these dogs, especially if thrombocytosis, proteinuria or low potassium concentrations are present.

An epidemiological study of diabetes mellitus in dogs attending first opinion practice in the UK
TLDR
This study provides an objective assessment of canine DM using primary-care veterinary practice data and is a valuable benchmark against which future epidemiological trends in DM can be assessed and improvements in the management of DM in primary- care practice can be judged.
Prevalence and risk factors for mast cell tumours in dogs in England
TLDR
This study highlights a clinically significant prevalence of MCT and identifies specific breed types with predisposition to MCT, potentially aiding veterinarian awareness and facilitating diagnosis.
Prevalence of Disorders Recorded in Dogs Attending Primary-Care Veterinary Practices in England
TLDR
The results suggest that, for maximal impact, breeding reforms should target commonly-diagnosed complex disorders that are amenable to genetic improvement and should place special focus on at-risk breeds.
Prognostic factors for survival in dogs with pituitary-dependent hypercortisolism treated with trilostane
TLDR
Clinical signs, liver enzymes, serum cortisol concentrations of the endocrine tests, proteinuria, systolic hypertension, the presence of concomitant disorders, and the frequency of trilostane administration were not associated with survival time, and Hyperphosphataemia is a common finding in dogs with newly diagnosed PDH and represents a negative prognostic factor.
A comparison of factors that influence survival in dogs with adrenal-dependent hyperadrenocorticism treated with mitotane or trilostane.
TLDR
The choice of medical treatment for ADH may not have a major effect on survival times, however, the presence of metastatic disease considerably decreases survival time regardless of the choice ofmedical treatment.
A comparison of the survival times of dogs treated with mitotane or trilostane for pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism.
TLDR
There were no significant differences between the survival times for animals treated with trilostane and those treated with mitotane and only age at diagnosis and weight were significantly negatively associated with survival in the multivariable model.
Chronic kidney disease in dogs in UK veterinary practices: prevalence, risk factors, and survival.
TLDR
Increased awareness of CKD risk factors and association of blood biochemistry results with survival time should facilitate diagnosis and optimize case management to improve animal survival and welfare.
Epidemiological, clinical, haematological and biochemical characteristics of canine hypothyroidism
TLDR
Assessment of cholesterol, creatine kinase, aspartate aminotransferase, γ-glutamyltransferase, and red blood cell and neutrophil counts may be particularly useful in distinguishing hypothyroid dogs from euthyroid animals with similar clinical signs.
Epidemiology of Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease Diagnosis in Dogs Attending Primary-Care Veterinary Practices in England.
TLDR
Breed predispositions and demographic factors associated with diagnosis and case management of CCL disease in dogs identified in this study can be used to help direct future research and management strategies.
Prevalence of and Risk Factors for Degenerative Mitral Valve Disease in Dogs Attending Primary‐care Veterinary Practices in England
TLDR
Analysis of primary‐care data to identify factors associated with DMVD would help clinicians identify high‐risk individuals and improve understanding and knowledge of identified risk factors could improve clinical diagnosis and direct future research.
