Clinical Medicine

Managing Compulsive Disorders in Cats

Sustained self-licking and overgrooming are common behaviors associated with compulsive disorders in felines.

Although compulsive disorder is a relatively rare diagnosis for cats, this behavior can lead to a significantly decreased quality of life for both cat and owner.

Selamectin Use in Companion Animals

While selamectin has been on the market for decades, it is important to review the updated literature due to extra-label use and emerging infectious concerns.

New product options represent exciting new tools in the crusade against parasites in companion animals, from the domestic to the exotic.

Adrenal-Dependent Atypical Hyperadrenocorticism in a Labrador Retriever

This rare case of adrenal-dependent AHAC provides evidence that trilostane therapy may effectively manage associated clinical signs if surgical intervention is not pursued.

Caring for Clients at the End

Giving as much attention to the client as to the pet about to be euthanized can greatly affect the grieving process and outcome for everyone involved.

Clients remember the last moments they share with their pet. They remember how the veterinary team treated their pet and how we made them feel during those moments. 

Dermatophytoses in Dogs and Cats

Dermatophytoses have a variety of clinical presentations, and a step-by-step logical approach is crucial for proper diagnosis.

Dermatophytosis is a zoonotic but curable disease. Establishing whether a patient is completely cured should be supported by a combination of resolution of clinical signs and negative culture. 

Multimodal Pain Management for Canine Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis treatment aims to delay disease progression, decrease inflammation, and ultimately improve the patient’s quality of life.

OA is common in dogs. Management involves multiple modalities and must be tailored to each patient and its owner.

Canine Adenovirus Type 2 Vaccination

The MLV vaccine for canine adenovirus protects against CAV-2 as well as CAV-1.

CAV-2 is endemic in healthy dog populations worldwide and is a significant viral cause of CIRD, particularly when combined with viral or bacterial co-infections. Vaccination with an MLV vaccine is critical for reduction of clinical signs and to prevent canine infectious hepatitis. 

Cuterebriasis in Dogs and Cats

Cuterebra botflies are typically parasites of rodents and rabbits, but they may find their way into pet cats and, less frequently, dogs.

Although Cuterebra infestations are usually more traumatic for the client than the animal, severe manifestations are possible. Client education and year-round broad-spectrum parasiticides are recommended.
