Solar-induced dorsal skin necrosis in sheep.
This report describes an outbreak of solar-induced thermal burns over the dorsal skin of criollo and Texel sheep in Uruguay. ANIMALS AND METHODS: Cross-bred criollo and pure-bred Texel adult ewes from a flock of 80 animals presented with severe skin lesions. Eight animals were evaluated clinically and skin biopsy specimens were collected from three ewes for histopathology. Epidemiological data were collected. RESULTS: Black/brown criollo sheep presented with extensive, wide, linear dorsal skin necrosis extending from the interscapular to the lumbosacral area. Necrotic skin was firm, dry and largely detached from ...

Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and keratinocyte differentiation in equine experimental body and limb wounds healing by second intention.
CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: Presence of N-cadherin suggests that cadherin switching occurred during wound healing, this may be an indication that EMT occurs in horses. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this has never been described in horses before and warrants further investigation to assess the clinical implications. The tip of the migrating epithelium in body wounds appeared more differentiated than limb wounds, which could be part of the explanation for the superior healing of body wounds.

Molecular characterization of Canis familiaris oral papillomavirus 1 identified in naturally infected dogs from Northeast Brazil.
CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: Despite the small number of cases analysed and the partial analysis of L1 nucleotide and amino acid sequences, this study has demonstrated diversity in CPV samples from Northeast Brazil. A putative new CPV1 variant associated with oral SCC, with novel protein structure changing mutations, was identified which may be important for understanding papillomavirus pathogenesis.

Otitis externa in eight horses - clinical signs, treatment and prognosis.
CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: Otitis externa in horses is a rare and treatable condition. The condition may be present for prolonged periods before owners become aware, compromising the welfare of affected horses. Untreated otitis externa is a suggested cause of otitis media and temporohyoid osteoarthropathy, emphasizing the importance of identifying and treating this condition at an early stage. For this reason, clinicians should include a brief inspection of the pinnae and external ear canal in the clinical examination of horses.

Alterations in circulating concentrations of IL-17, IL-31 and total IgE in dogs with atopic dermatitis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of canine atopic dermatitis (AD) is complex. Dysregulation of the cutaneous immune system is considered an important regulator of the allergic response.

Mycobacterium nebraskense infection in a dog in Switzerland with disseminated skin lesions.
CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: This case is noteworthy for the description of a new mycobacterial species contributing to disseminated panniculitis in a dog and for the difficulties experienced in the lengthy empirical treatment of slowly growing nontuberculous mycobacterial infections. The addition of prednisolone to induce complete healing raises the question of whether the mycobacterial infection was primary or whether it occurred secondarily to an ongoing sterile panniculitis.
