Abstract

The same food formulation processed to obtain two different starch gelatinisations (SG) and resistant starch (RS) contents was evaluated in old and adult dogs, regarding apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) of nutrients, fermentation products in faeces, and postprandial glucose and insulin...

Abstract

Objectives: To establish the occurrence of increased plasma ammonia concentration after L-asparaginase (L-asp) administration in dogs with high-grade lymphoma or leukemia; to identify risk factors for the development of hyperammonemia after L-asp administration; and to determine occurrence of...

Abstract

In the portosystemic shunt the blood coming from the gastrointestinal tract is not directed to the liver to be metabolized but rather diverted to the systemic circulation. The accumulation of these toxic substances associated with functional alterations of the organ can result in hepatic...

Abstract

Background: Hyperammonemia can result in hepatic encephalopathy, which in severe cases eventually can lead to coma and death. In dogs, congenital portosystemic shunts (CPSS) are the most common cause for hyperammonemia. Conservative treatment consists of a protein modified diet, nonabsorbable...

Abstract

Despite their popularity, little research has been performed on lightly cooked and raw diet formats for pets. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the apparent total-tract macronutrient digestibility (ATTD); fecal characteristics, metabolites, and microbiota; serum chemistry...

Abstract

Intravenous retrograde administration of drugs is used for both diagnosis and treatment of distal limb diseases. For this purpose, a tourniquet hemostasis is applied to the proximal part of the limb, and a therapeutic or x-ray contrast drug is introduced into the superficial vein of the limb...

Abstract

Absorption of dietary lipids in the small intestine is dependent on the emulsification by bile acids (BA) and the formation of chylomicrons. Cholestyramine is a common drug used in humans - and potentially dogs - to treat BA malabsorption associated with chronic diarrhea. It is known to bind BA to...
