Survey of the equine broodmare industry, abortion, and equine herpesvirus-1 vaccination in Ontario
Can Vet J. 2021 Feb;62(2):124-132.ABSTRACTA survey of Ontario horse breeders was conducted in 2016 and retrospectively asked farm-level management questions regarding herd sizes, vaccination, respiratory disease, and abortion over the years 2014 to 2015. A total of 88 farm owners completed the survey, reporting 857 broodmares. Using logistic regression modelling, management influences on vaccine use, and the reporting of respiratory disease or abortion was investigated. Having veterinary records and the reasons for breeding were significantly associated with the odds of an abortion even after controlling for broodmare herd...

Clinical outcomes of dogs with transitional cell carcinoma receiving medical therapy, with and without partial cystectomy
The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate the effects of surgery on outcome for dogs with naturally occurring urinary bladder transitional cell carcinoma. Forty-seven dogs met the inclusion criteria. Thirty-one dogs (Group A) were treated with partial cystectomy and adjunctive medical therapy and 16 dogs (Group B) were treated with medical therapy alone. Overall survival was greater in dogs treated with partial cystectomy and adjunctive medical therapy (498 days for Group A versus 335 days for Group B, hazard ratio 2.5; 95% confidence interval: 1.1 to 5.7; P = 0.026).

Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation in a dog that was presented for neck wounds.
This report indicates a possible role of imbalances in autonomic tone due to trauma in the development of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and suggests that it should be a differential diagnostic consideration in patients with atrial fibrillation following trauma. Primary treatment of atrial fibrillation may not be needed in these cases if the ventricular response rate is not rapid, or if there is spontaneous conversion to sinus rhythm.

Evaluation of bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) and bovine herpesvirus (BHV) specific antibody responses between heterologous and homologous prime-boost vaccinated western Canadian beef calves.
Abstract Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) is an economically important cause of morbidity and mortality in beef calves. Control of BRD is most often addressed through "homologous" vaccination utilizing the same injectable modified-live viral (MLV) vaccine for both priming and boosting. Heterologous prime-boosting uses different routes and antigenic forms for priming and boosting. Three vaccine protocols were compared: an injectable (IJ) MLV (IJ-MLV) group (IJ-MLV priming at ~48 days and boosted with IJ-MLV at weaning), intranasal (IN) MLV (IN-MLV) group (intranasal priming with MLV at ~24 hours, boosted ...

A comparison of 4 iron supplementation protocols to protect suckling piglets from anemia.
The objective of this study was to determine if oral iron supplementation provided free-choice from a week of age until weaning could prevent iron deficiency. Results showed that the industry standard treatment of a single iron injection at 4 days of age did not always prevent iron deficiency at weaning, indicating the need to provide additional iron to fast-growing suckling pigs either orally or by a second injection. It appears that providing piglets daily access to iron-enriched peat moss or injecting a second 200-mg dose of iron intramuscularly are both effective in meeting the piglets iron requirements during the suck...

Long-chain LPS-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to detect swine herds infected by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotype 17.
te; J Abstract Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotype 17, one of the two most recent serotypes described, has been isolated from diseased pigs in North America. Yet, no serological test for surveillance has been developed so far. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) using the long-chain lipopolysaccharide antigen (LC-LPS) of this serotype is described. As predicted by previous genetic data on the O-antigen locus, cross reactions were observed between this serotype and serotypes 3, 6, 8, and 15. Although animals infected by serotype 17 would be detected using the current serotype 3 LC-LPS ELISA, better re...

Abstract A 6-year-old intact male pug dog was referred to the Atlantic Veterinary College veterinary teaching hospital for a surgical consultation after survey radiographs taken by the referring veterinarian led to a tentative diagnosis of a peritoneal-pericardial diaphragmatic hernia. Computed tomography of the thorax and abdomen prior to surgery further characterized the lesion and aided in surgical planning. Surgical correction of the defect was achieved via primary herniorrhaphy. The patient was discharged and was reported to be doing well 7 months after surgery.
