Influence of body weight in cauda equina syndrome pattern — a retrospective CT evaluation of lumbosacral junction in dogs
Brainstem auditory evoked potentials in healthy Argentine Mastiff dogs recorded with surface electrodes

Brainstem auditory evoked responses (BAER) in veterinary practice are recorded with needle electrodes. To present, there is no other study regarding BAER acquired with surface electrodes in dogs. The aim of the study is to describe the BAER in Argentine Mastiff dogs acquired with surface electrodes. Methods: BAER was recorded in seven healthy Argentine Mastiff dogs (since congenital deafness is more frequent in this breed) for monoaural and binaural

Brainstem auditory evoked potentials in healthy cats recorded with surface electrodes

The aim of this study was to evaluate the brainstem auditory evoked potentials of seven healthy cats, using surface electrodes. Latencies of waves I, III and V, and intervals I–III, I–V and III–V were recorded. Monaural and binaural stimulation of the cats were done with sounds ranging between 40 and 90 decibel Sound Pressure Level. All latencies were lower than those described in previous studies, where needle electrodes were used. In the

The (1)h NMR profile of healthy dog cerebrospinal fluid

The availability of data for reference values in cerebrospinal fluid for healthy humans is limited due to obvious practical and ethical issues. The variability of reported values for metabolites in human cerebrospinal fluid is quite large. Dogs present great similarities with humans, including in cases of central nervous system pathologies. The paper presents the first study on healthy dog cerebrospinal fluid metabolomic profile using 1H NMR spectroscopy.
