Influence Of Prednisolone On Urinary Calcium Oxalate And Struvite Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cats, N Geyer, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, A Hezel, T Moyers, J Hayes Apr 2012

Influence Of Prednisolone On Urinary Calcium Oxalate And Struvite Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cats, N Geyer, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, A Hezel, T Moyers, J Hayes

Sherry Cox

Prednisolone (10 mg PO q24h) or placebo was administered to healthy cats for 2 weeks in a masked, placebo-controlled, crossover-design study, and 24-hour urine samples were collected. When cats received prednisolone, 24-hour urine pH was lower and 24-hour urine excretion of creatinine, magnesium, phosphate, and potassium was higher than when cats received placebo. No significant difference was found in urinary relative supersaturation for calcium oxalate (CaOx) or struvite between treatment groups. Prednisolone administration did not induce diuresis, nor was it associated with increased calcium excretion or urinary saturation for CaOx in these healthy cats. Results of this study, however, should ...


Influence Of Hydrochlorothiazide On Urinary Calcium Oxalate Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cat, A Hezel, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, N Geyer, T Moyers, J Hayes Apr 2012

Influence Of Hydrochlorothiazide On Urinary Calcium Oxalate Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cat, A Hezel, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, N Geyer, T Moyers, J Hayes

Sherry Cox

Hydrochlorothiazide (1 mg/kg PO q12h) or placebo was administered to healthy cats for 2 weeks in a masked, placebo-controlled, crossover-design study, and 24-hour urine samples were collected. When cats received hydrochlorothiazide, 24-hour urine volume, ammonia, chloride, creatinine, magnesium, oxalic acid, phosphate, potassium, and sodium were significantly higher than when cats received placebo. Hydrochlorothiazide was associated with significantly lower urinary saturation for calcium oxalate, but no difference was found in 24-hour urine calcium and citrate, urinary saturation for struvite, or blood ionized calcium. Hydrochlorothiazide decreased urinary saturation for calcium oxalate and could be useful in managing cats with calcium oxalate ...


Influence Of Dirlotapide, A Microsomal Triglyceride Transfer Protein Inhibitor, On The Digestibility Of A Dry Expanded Diet In Adult Dogs, Claudia Kirk Jul 2007

Influence Of Dirlotapide, A Microsomal Triglyceride Transfer Protein Inhibitor, On The Digestibility Of A Dry Expanded Diet In Adult Dogs, Claudia Kirk

Claudia A Kirk

The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects of dirlotapide, a microsomal triglyceride transfer protein inhibitor, on apparent nutrient digestibility of an expanded dry dog food, on defecation frequency and fecal consistency. Eighteen beagles were randomized to either placebo (n = 6) or dirlotapide (n = 12). Testing was divided into a 21-day adaptation phase (days -21 to -1) and a 35-day treatment (digestibility testing) phase (days 0-35). During the treatment phase, dogs were administered oral dirlotapide (0.3 mg/kg) or placebo (0.06 mL/kg) once daily. For digestibility testing, feces were collected over two periods for 7 ...
