BACKGROUND: The effects of sex, age, and season on blood analyte concentrations have not been investigated for the killer whale (Orcinus orca). Defining these changes provides background data for improving the care of managed populations and defines normal changes that could occur in wild counterparts. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to define hematologic and serum biochemical variation by age, sex, and season for an ex situ killer whale population. METHODS: Blood samples collected from killer whales during normal wellness exams were retrospectively identified...

BACKGROUND: Black-shouldered kites (BSK, Elanus caeruleus), Brahminy kites (BrK, Haliastur indus), and black kites (BK, Milvus migrans govinda) are medium-sized hawks found in Thailand, and little is known about the hematology of these three kite species. OBJECTIVE: This study reports basic hematologic values and describes the light microscopic, cytochemical, and ultrastructural characteristics of blood cells in these kites. METHODS: Blood samples were collected from 113 healthy kites (50 BSKs, 53 BrKs, and 10 BKs) from January 2012 to December 2017...

BACKGROUND: Hemosiderophages can be found in bronchoalveolar lavage samples and have been reported in association with a wide range of respiratory and cardiovascular disorders in cats and humans. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to retrospectively evaluate the presence of hemosiderin in canine and feline bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples. It also aimed to examine the association of BAL hemosiderin with signalment, clinical signs, and historical disease prior to BAL, with prior transthoracic fine-needle aspiration (FNA), with bronchoalveolar lavage duration, and with cytologic interpretation...

An 8-year-old, neutered male, Golden Retriever presented for bilateral carpal joint effusion. A complete blood count revealed mild leukopenia and marked thrombocytopenia. Samples were sent to the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory for blood smear review and serologic testing for tick-borne diseases. Numerous morulae were observed within neutrophils, and antibodies against Ehrlichia canis were detected at a 1:512 dilution via the indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) test. As neutrophilic morulae are morphologically indistinguishable between Ehrlichia ewingii and Anaplasma phagocytophilum, and genus-wide cross-reactivity is possible with serologic testing, additional molecular testing was performed...

A 1-year-old, female intact Pug dog was presented to the Small Animal Teaching Hospital of the University of Liverpool with a 4-week history of progressive multifocal intracranial signs. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detected multiple hemorrhagic lesions in the brain. The Baermann and zinc sulfate flotation tests with centrifugation, performed on fecal samples, were positive for lungworm larvae and an antigenic test confirmed Angiostrongylus vasorum infection. Anthelmintic treatment was started with a consequent marked clinical improvement...

BACKGROUND: Markers of lipid and glucose metabolism are used in both clinical practice and research. Detection of abnormal laboratory results often relies on species-specific reference intervals, but interbreed variation can also affect data interpretation. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the present study was to compare concentrations of selected biochemical variables among different dog breeds. METHODS: We analyzed a database containing information on biochemical variables from 534 dogs belonging to nine different breeds...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac troponins are gold-standard biomarkers of myocardial injury. There is a need for validation of assays with higher availability and lower costs in veterinary medicine. OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of the present study was to perform an analytical validation of the IMMULITE 2000 TnI assay for use in dogs and cats. A secondary aim was to evaluate its agreement with the previously validated and sensitive Siemens ADVIA Centaur TnI-Ultra assay. METHODS: Intra- and inter-assay variation, detection limits, the linearity under dilution, and a sample addition study (modified spike-and-recovery analysis) were investigated to assess analytical performance in 15 canine and 15 feline serum samples...

BACKGROUND: In a previous study, the validation of rat bone marrow (BM) collection, processing, and analysis using the Sysmex XT-2000iV (Sysmex Corporation, Kobe, Japan) hematology analyzer showed that the Sysmex hematology analyzer produced BM differential counts that were comparable to those obtained with microscopic differential counts. OBJECTIVE: This study was conducted to expand the validation of the Sysmex TNCC (total nucleated cell count) and 5-part BM differential in cynomolgus monkeys, Beagle dogs, and CD-1 mice, which are alternate species that are also frequently used in preclinical safety studies...

BACKGROUND: Staphylococcus aureus is an opportunistic pathogen with the ability to form mobile planktonic aggregates during growth, in vitro. The in vivo pathophysiologic effects of S aureus aggregates on host responses are unknown. Knowledge of these could aid in combating infections. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the effect of increasing concentrations of two different aggregating S aureus strains on the hemostatic and inflammatory host responses in canine whole blood...
