    More genes associated with canine hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis

    Hip dysplasia is a common multifactorial disorder, where genetics play an important role. Its development is influenced by more than one gene, and recent research carried out at the University of Helsinki has revealed three novel loci associated with canine hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis. The study was conducted on a sample of more than 750

    Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)

    Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)

    Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is a highly fatal immune-mediated vasculitis in cats, caused by feline coronavirus (FCoV). FIP develops in about 10% of cats, infected with FCoV, which normally causes only mild enteric infection, and the pathogenesis of this is still poorly understood. Due to this fact and its high mortality rate, FIP poses great

    Morbidity and Mortality of Domestic Rabbits

    Morbidity and Mortality of Domestic Rabbits

    Pet rabbits are one of the most popular mammalian pets. But despite its domestication and great conformational variation, they appear to retain a large proportion of the behaviour patterns similar to the European wild rabbit, which is important to consider to adequately meet their needs. A study about Morbidity and mortality of domestic rabbits in

    Giardia infections in dogs and cats

    Giardia infections in dogs and cats

    Giardia duodenalis is one of the most commonly misidentified (as false-positive or false-negative) parasites. It is found worldwide, infecting a variety of animals, including dogs, cats and humans. While most of infected dogs and cats are asymptomatic, young, debilitated, geriatric or immunocompromised animals are at increased risk of complications. ESCCAP has produced a new fact
