A Study Of The Nutritional Effect Of Grains In The Diet Of A Dog, Kristyn M. Souliere 2014 University of Maine - Main

A Study Of The Nutritional Effect Of Grains In The Diet Of A Dog, Kristyn M. Souliere

Honors College

The present study was designed to address the prevalence of the lack of knowledge for what owners are feeding their dogs, and to determine if grain should be within the diet. It was hypothesized that a bag of feed containing protein at no specific level, with a low level of grain will be more beneficial for the animal, and that a diet needs to contain grains. The crude protein, crude fat, and first five ingredients listed were compared for four bags chosen, and to the nutritional requirements for a dog. “Holistic Blend Grain Free”, contained an extremely high amount of ...

Thomas J Doherty

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate antinociception, anesthesia, and recovery in llamas given tiletamine-zolazepam (TZ) with either morphine, xylazine, morphine and xylazine, or saline. STUDY DESIGN: Randomized crossover experimental study. ANIMALS:m Six healthy, adult intact male llamas. METHODS:m Llamas were given each of four treatments intramuscularly with a 1-week washout: TZ (2 mg kg-1 ) combined with either morphine (0.5 mg kg-1 ; M), xylazine (0.15 mg kg-1 ; X), morphine (0.5 mg kg-1 ) and xylazine (0.15mg kg-1 ) (MX), or saline (C). Llamas breathed room air during the experiment. Characteristics of anesthesia, recovery, and selected cardiopulmonary variables were recorded. Antinociception was ...


Bioequivalence Of Orally Administered Generic, Compounded, And Innovator-Formulated Itraconazole In Healthy Dogs., Dianne Mawby, Jacqueline Whittemore, S Genger, M Papich 2014 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Bioequivalence Of Orally Administered Generic, Compounded, And Innovator-Formulated Itraconazole In Healthy Dogs., Dianne Mawby, Jacqueline Whittemore, S Genger, M Papich

Jacqueline C. Whittemore DVM, Ph.D., DACVIM

BACKGROUND: Itraconazole is commonly used to treat systemic fungal infections in dogs, but problems exist with absorption and cost. OBJECTIVE: To determine oral bioequivalence of generic and compounded itraconazole compared to original innovator (brand name) itraconazole in healthy dogs. ANIMALS: Nine healthy, adult research Beagle dogs. METHODS: A randomized, 3-way, 3-period, crossover design with an 8-day washout period. After a 12-hour fast, each dog received 100 mg (average: 10.5 mg/kg) of either innovator itraconazole, an approved human generic capsule, or compounded itraconazole (compounded using a commercially available compounding vehicle) with a small meal. Plasma was collected at predetermined ...

Environmental Salmonella In Agricultural Fair Poultry Exhibits In Colorado, K. L. Pabilonia, K. J. Cadmus, T. M. Lingus, D. S. Bolte, M. M. Russell, D. C. Van Metre, M. M. Erdman 2014 Colorado State University

Salmonella enterica is a common zoonotic pathogen in humans. Transmission typically occurs through consumption of contaminated food products or contact with infected animals, including poultry or their environment. The objective of this study was to estimate the frequency of Salmonella contamination in the environment in poultry exhibits at agricultural fairs. Samples were collected from cages, feed, floors and tables in the exhibit and cultured for Salmonella. At least one environmental sample was positive for Salmonella in 10 of 11 fairs (91%), and Salmonella was isolated from 28 of 55 environmental samples (50.9%). Eleven different serotypes were detected. Results of ...

Veterinary Clinical Sciences Publications

Background: Endoscopy is performed for direct inspection of the mucosa and acquisition of biopsies in dogs with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Aim: To evaluate the interobserver agreement in the endoscopic assessment of duodenal mucosa in dogs with IBD. Methods: Thirty-five archived endoscopic images of grossly normal (n = 6) and inflamed (n = 29) duodenal mucosa were displayed to 3 expert and 5 trainee endoscopists. Each image was assessed independently by endoscopists for mucosal abnormalities using established indices (of hyperemia, granularity, friability, lymphatic dilatation, and erosions) or interpreted as normal mucosa (trial 1). A repeated trial (trial 2) was performed with the ...

Cysteine Proteases Mediate Feline Tritrichomonas Foetus Adhesion Dependent Cytopathologicity To Intestinal Epithelial Cells, M Tolbert, S Stauffer, M Brand, Jody Gookin 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Cysteine Proteases Mediate Feline Tritrichomonas Foetus Adhesion Dependent Cytopathologicity To Intestinal Epithelial Cells, M Tolbert, S Stauffer, M Brand, Jody Gookin

M Katherine Tolbert DVM, PhD, DACVIM

Trichomonads are obligate protozoan parasites most renowned as venereal pathogens of the reproductive tract of humans and cattle. Recently, a trichomonad highly similar to bovine venereal Tritrichomonas foetus but having a unique tropism for the intestinal tract was recognized as a significant cause of colitis in domestic cats. Despite a high prevalence, worldwide distribution, and lack of consistently effective drugs for treatment of the infection, the cellular mechanisms of T. foetus pathogenicity in the intestinal tract have not been examined. The aims of this study were to determine the pathogenic effect of feline T. foetus on porcine intestinal epithelial cells ...


Bacterial Epididymitis In Two Stallions, J Held, S Adair, M McGavin, William Adams, R Toal, J Henton 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Bacterial Epididymitis In Two Stallions, J Held, S Adair, M Mcgavin, William Adams, R Toal, J Henton

Henry S. Adair, III MS, DVM, DACVS

Two stallions had unilateral bacterial epididymitis attributable to S zooepidemicus infection. Diagnosis was based on bacterial isolation, WBC in the semen, higher than normal blood fibrinogen concentration, and leukocytosis with regenerative left shift. One horse had high seminal pH. Ultrasonography of the involved epididymides revealed changes consistent with the appearance of abnormal accumulation of exudate in the tail of the epididymis. Treatment included unilateral orchiectomy and antibiotic administration. In stallion 1, the infection persisted despite treatment. Treatment result was not available for stallion 2.


Ascorbic Acid As Suspected Cause Of Oxalate Nephrotoxicosis In A Goat, H Adair, William Adams 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Ascorbic Acid As Suspected Cause Of Oxalate Nephrotoxicosis In A Goat, H Adair, William Adams

Henry S. Adair, III MS, DVM, DACVS

Oxalate nephrotoxicosis was determined, by renal biopsy, to be the cause of azotemia in a goat. The origin of the oxalate was determined to be a high concentration of ascorbic acid that had been administered parenterally to the goat. Ascorbic acid has been documented as a cause of oxalate nephrotoxicosis in human beings.


Magnetic Resonance Imaging Of Ocular And Orbital Disease In 5 Dogs And A Cat, R Morgan, R Ring, Daniel Ward, William Adams 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Of Ocular And Orbital Disease In 5 Dogs And A Cat, R Morgan, R Ring, Daniel Ward, William Adams

Daniel A. Ward

Magnetic resonance (MR) images were acquired in 5 dogs and one cat with ocular and orbital disease. MR images were obtained in the dorsal or oblique dorsal, and oblique sagittal planes. Pathological changes identified in MR images included inflammatory lesions, cystic structures, and neoplasms. All abnormalities were readily apparent in T1-weighted images. MR findings in affected animals were often similar in signal intensity, location, and growth pattern to those found in humans with comparable diseases. Although no MR changes were considered pathognomonic for a given disease, MR imaging provided detailed information on the homogeneity, extent and invasiveness of the lesions.
