Chronic enteropathy (CE) is an umbrella term used in dogs to describe a group of diseases with different aetiologies, characterised by chronic gastrointestinal signs. These diseases are clinically classified according to ...
Associations between the radiographic appearance of vascular channels in proximal sesamoid bones, their microstructural characteristics and past racing performance in thoroughbreds
Reasons for performing the study: ‘Sesamoiditis’ is classically defined by equine practitioners as the presence of and abnormalities in vascular channel appearance within the proximal sesamoid bones (PSB). It is the most ...
Inflammation and endothelial perturbation in canine abdominal surgery: the potential modulatory effect of lidocaine
Complication rates following emergency laparotomy surgery are high, with organ dysfunction being a commonly encountered post-operative complication. Given the endothelium acts as the interface between the systemic circulation ...
Investigations on the pathophysiology of canine idiopathic epilepsy
