Abstract

The relationship between pulmonary hypertension and lesions was examined in 41 dogs infested naturally with heartworms (28 cases with pulmonary heartworm disease and 13 with the caval syndrome). Pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP) was measured before and 1 or 7 days after heartworm removal with...

Abstract

Dogs with pulmonary hypertension following administration of thiacetarsamide adulticide for Dirofilaria immitis infection were given antihistamine treatment under anaesthesia. Neither diphenhydramine (an H1 blocker) nor cimetidine (an H2 blocker) reduced pulmonary arterial pressure (PPA) at...

Because melarsomine dihydrochloride (RM340) has been shown to be more effective in killing D. immitis than the traditional approved adulticide, thiacetarsamide, an attempt was made to determine whether this new adulticide induced more severe lung disease. Before adulticide treatment, 32 dogs with...

Abstract

The pulmonary artery blood flow was determined in 40 dogs by pulsed Doppler echocardiography as a non-invasive means for estimating pulmonary artery pressure. Most of these dogs had heartworm disease which often causes pulmonary artery hypertension. From the flow velocity profile, the Doppler...
