Abstract

Cats need a minimum amount of space even in animal shelters. In this study the effects of single caging and cage size on the behavior and stress level of domestic cats were investigated. Six neutered cats (2-15 years old) that had been housed in a group for at least 7 months were moved to three...

Abstract

Adrenal function may be altered in animals with hyperthyroidism. The aim of the study was to assess adrenal function of hyperthyroid cats (n=17) compared to healthy cats (n=18) and cats with chronic diseases (n=18). Adrenal function was evaluated by adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) stimulation...

Abstract

In 31 healthy cats, urine samples were collected to determine the cortisol/creatinine ratio (UCC) during hospitalization and at home. The UCC of the samples, which had been collected in the clinic, was significantly higher (0-19×10-6, Median 3×10-6) than in one of the samples collected at home...

Abstract

Measurement of the urinary corticoid:creatinine (C:C) ratio provides an assessment of cortisol secretion over a period of time. Therefore, this test is a very sensitive measure of adrenocortical function. The stress of the diagnostic procedure and nonadrenal disease may increase the urinary C:C ...

Abstract

Background: Diagnosis of pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism (PDH) in cats is challenging because there is no specific diagnostic test. Hypothesis/Objective: The determination of plasma ACTH precursor (POMC and pro-ACTH) concentration might facilitate the diagnosis of PDH in cats. The aim of...

Abstract

An 8-year-old, male neutered, domestic longhair cat was referred for investigation of insulin-resistant diabetes mellitus. Routine haematology, serum biochemistry, urinalysis (including culture), total T4 and urine creatinine:cortisol ratio were unremarkable, but markedly increased insulin-like...

Abstract

A 12-year-old female neutered cat presented with acute onset unilateral vestibular syndrome, a spontaneous cutaneous wound, polyuria, polydipsia, and diabetes mellitus. Hyperadrenocorticism was demonstrated by means of hyper-responsiveness to adrenocorticotropic hormone stimulation, elevated urine ...
