Choosing which metrics to use when reporting antimicrobial use information to veterinarians in the Canadian swine industry
The objective of this study was to evaluate preferences for various metrics and denominators among Canadian swine veterinarians, in order to improve reporting of antimicrobial use (AMU) information to these stakeholders and to facilitate enhanced stewardship decisions. An online survey was made available to swine veterinarians across Canada; 12 responses (estimated response rate 17.6%) were submitted and analyzed. Responses represented veterinarians from every major pig-producing province and from a range of year of graduation from veterinary college. Participants self-evaluated their understanding of dose-based metrics as...

Comparison of classic and needle arthroscopy to diagnose canine medial shoulder instability: 31 cases
Can Vet J. 2021 May;62(5):461-468.ABSTRACTThis retrospective study compared surgery time, anesthesia time, and costs recorded with classic arthroscopy or needle arthroscopy when diagnosing canine medial shoulder instability. Signalment, examination findings, diagnostics, anesthesia time, surgery time, treatment, invoices, and complications were reported. All cases (classic arthroscopy, 14 cases; needle arthroscopy, 17 cases) were diagnosed with medial shoulder instability. Anesthesia times, surgery times, and invoices were statistically compared for classic and needle arthroscopy (P

Surveillance of West Nile virus in horses in Canada: A retrospective study of cases reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency from 2003 to 2019
This study also investigated characteristics of cases reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) between 2015 and 2019. The western region (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba) had higher incidence rates than the eastern region (Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic provinces) and overall, Saskatchewan registered the highest incidence. Over the study period, an earlier weekly preliminary onset of WNV cases was observed in the western region. The vast majority of cases were unvaccinated (96%), most cases were Quarter Horses (68%) and the risk of mortality was 31.9%. The findings of this study may be us...

Defining important canine zoonotic pathogens within the Prairie Provinces of Canada
Can Vet J. 2021 May;62(5):477-483.ABSTRACTThe goal of this study was to establish a short list of zoonotic pathogens involving the domestic dog that can be prioritized for a companion animal surveillance program specific to the Prairie Provinces of Canada. A list of pathogens documented in dogs was created through a comprehensive review of infectious disease textbooks for the following taxonomical categories: bacteria, ectoparasites, fungi, helminths, protozoa, rickettsia, and viruses. This created an initial list of 594 pathogens that was then pared down through an extensive review of the literature using the following cr...

Companion animal preventive care at a veterinary teaching hospital - Knowledge, attitudes, and practices of clients
Can Vet J. 2021 May;62(5):484-490.ABSTRACTPreventive care is the cornerstone of health. However, veterinary staff to client (pet owner) communication of disease prevention may be limited resulting in increased pet risk. Our objectives were to evaluate knowledge, attitudes, and practices of clients regarding vaccination and parasite control and describe information sources influencing client preventive care. Over a 6-week period, clients visiting a veterinary teaching hospital in Prince Edward Island, Canada, were invited to complete a written questionnaire. Of those invited, 81% (105/129) completed the questionnaire. Respo...

Behavioral evaluation of 65 aggressive dogs following a reported bite event
Can Vet J. 2021 May;62(5):491-496.ABSTRACTPeer-reviewed scientific publications on the topic of dog bites are numerous. Montreal was one of the first municipalities in the province of Quebec to require mandatory assessment of aggressive dogs by veterinarians. In 2019, dogs reported as aggressive and considered a potential risk to public safety by city officials were scheduled for a mandatory behavioral assessment by a veterinarian. For the purpose of this study, only aggressive dogs that had bitten (N = 65) were included. The goals were to better describe the aggressive behavior of these dogs (behavioral sequence, type of ...

Anesthesia techniques used for field castration of 10 intractable horses
Can Vet J. 2021 May;62(5):501-504.ABSTRACTDealing with an intractable horse is a reality for nearly every equine or mixed animal veterinarian. Establishing an adequate level of sedation prior to induction of anesthesia for various clinical procedures involves little margin for error regarding the safety of the veterinarian, handler, and patient. This is further compounded by the extreme difficulty of gaining venous access required to obtain rapid and reliable results. This case series describes a technique of intramuscular sedation used for field castration of 10 captive, formerly wild horses, which may be useful for vario...

Lacrimal bone agenesis in a dog
Can Vet J. 2021 May;62(5):505-508.ABSTRACTA 20-month-old neutered male dachshund dog was referred because of a 10-week history of swelling close to the medial canthus of the left eye. Recurrence of the lesion and cytological appearance of the fluid content were suggestive of inflammation. Computed tomography revealed a triangular-shaped bone defect in the skull deep to the lesion. Computed tomography dacryocystography demonstrated contrast medium pooling within the maxillary recess and nasal cavity rather than filling the lacrimal duct. Lacrimal bone agenesis was diagnosed. Key clinical message: Congenital skull including ...
