OBJECTIVE To determine age, breed, sex, body condition score, and diet of dogs and cats examined at private veterinary practices in the United States during 1995, and estimate prevalences of the most common disorders for these animals. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. ANIMALS 31,484 dogs and 15,226 cats examined by veterinary practitioners at 52 private veterinary practices. PROCEDURE Information on age, breed, sex, body condition score, diet, and assigned diagnostic codes were collected… Expand
Disease prevalence among dogs and cats in the United States and Australia and proportions of dogs and cats that receive therapeutic diets or dietary supplements.
TLDR
Results suggest that most dogs and cats reported by their owners to have a health problem were not being fed a therapeutic diet, and the rate of dietary supplement use was lower than that reported for people. Expand
Demographics of dogs, cats, and rabbits attending veterinary practices in Great Britain as recorded in their electronic health records
TLDR
There is an indication that the population structures of companion animals co-vary with human and environmental factors such as the predicted socioeconomic level linked to the owner’s address, which suggests that further studies of the relationship between human demographics and pet ownership are warranted. Expand
Prevalence of disorders recorded in cats attending primary-care veterinary practices in England.
TLDR
Primary-care veterinary clinical data within the VetCompass project was versatile and useful for demographic and clinical feline studies and Veterinarians could use these results to focus their diagnostic and prophylactic efforts towards the most prevalent feline disorders. Expand
[Feeding of dogs and cats in Germany].
TLDR
Pet owners should be advised early on excess weight, because the onset of being overweight is often not recognised and diets for the treatment of disease need to take this into account and offer solutions for treats. Expand
Epidemiology of surgical castration of dogs and cats in the United States.
TLDR
Many young adult (1- to < 4-year-old) dogs were uncastrated, signaling a need to promote earlier castration, and additional research is needed to evaluate the potential impact of wellness programs on an owner's decision to have his or her pet castrated. Expand
Major medical causes by breed and life stage for dogs presented at veterinary clinics in the Republic of Korea: a survey of electronic medical records
TLDR
The most common medical disorders and differences in prevalences of diseases, according to age and breeds, are identified in companion dogs visiting primary-care veterinary clinics in the Republic of Korea. Expand
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. Expand
Health screening to identify opportunities to improve preventive medicine in cats and dogs.
TLDR
Opportunities for increased quality of care are numerous given the high percentage of intact, unvaccinated or non-permanently identified pets and the low level of worm and flea control. Expand
Survey of the UK veterinary profession: common species and conditions nominated by veterinarians in practice
TLDR
The main aim of this study was to describe the veterinary population, the common species and conditions veterinary clinicians nominated they saw in practice and how much information clinicians perceived was available in the literature for these. Expand
The study of prevalence and associated risk factors of diseases and other clinical conditions diagnosed in dogs and cats in Douala city, Cameroon
TLDR
Investigating the prevalence of clinical diseases in dogs and cats in Douala city, Cameroon based on sex, breeds and age might help to instruct pet owners on preventive measures and to develop supplementary effective disease management and control strategies against pet animal diseases. Expand

Evaluation of postoperative complications following elective surgeries of dogs and cats at private practices using computer records.
TLDR
The results of this study describe populations of elective-surgery patients at private practices, provide data for educating clients about the risks associated with these procedures, and demonstrate how computerized records can be used to collect practice-specific medical information. Expand
Postoperative complications of elective surgeries in dogs and cats determined by examining electronic and paper medical records.
TLDR
It is indicated that the frequency of clinically relevant POC of elective surgeries in dogs and cats is substantial and would be significantly underestimated if paper records were not also assessed. Expand
The effect of underreporting on the apparent incidence and epidemiology of acute viral hepatitis.
TLDR
All persons in Pierce County, Washington, who had been diagnosed by a physician as having acute viral hepatitis in the period March 1 through August 31, 1984 were identified and passive reporting was about 65% complete. Expand

TLDR
There is indirect evidence that low reporting rates are not restricted to the area studied, and supplemental reporting by medical laboratories, hospital infection control, and record room personnel were suggested as additional soruces of case reports. Expand
Use of computerised general practice data for population surveillance: comparative study of influenza data.
TLDR
The apparent underreporting in the routine computerised data probably reflects lack of motivation and experience in disease surveillance and haphazard computer entry, along with overestimation of the population under surveillance. Expand
A controlled trial of disease surveillance strategies.
TLDR
Reporting patterns varied by disease and source of report, suggesting the desirability of various approaches to surveillance based on local resources and priorities. Expand
