2021 journal article

Prevalence of Vector-Borne Pathogens in Reproductive and Non-Reproductive Tissue Samples from Free-Roaming Domestic Cats in the South Atlantic USA

PATHOGENS, 10(9).

By: C. Manvell, K. Ferris n, R. Maggi n, E. Breitschwerdt n & E. Lashnits n

author keywords: Bartonella spp; hemotropic Mycoplasma spp; reproduction; cats; prevalence
TL;DR: Ear tip and reproductive tissues of FRCs from two locations in the South Atlantic United States for Anaplasma, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, hemotropic Mycoplasma, and Rickettsia species suggest that B. henselae preferentially infected cats’ reproductive tissue and reinforces the importance of investigating the potential for vertical transmission or induction of reproductive failure.

Use of single-dose oral gabapentin to attenuate fear responses in cage-trap confined community cats: a double-blind, placebo-controlled field trial

JOURNAL OF FELINE MEDICINE AND SURGERY, 20(6), 535–543.

By: K. Pankratz n, K. Ferris n, E. Griffith n & B. Sherman n

MeSH headings : Analgesics / administration & dosage; Animals; Behavior, Animal / drug effects; Cats; Cyclohexanecarboxylic Acids / administration & dosage; Double-Blind Method; Fear; Female; Gabapentin / administration & dosage; Male; Physical Examination / veterinary; Random Allocation
TL;DR: This study supports the hypothesis that 50 mg or 100 mg gabapentin reduces fear responses in confined community cats without measurable sedation over 3 h post-administration vs placebo, and Gabapentin treatment was well tolerated in this population of cats. (via Semantic Scholar)

Diagnostic accuracy of a rapid immunoassay for point-of-care detection of urinary tract infection in dogs

AMERICAN JOURNAL OF VETERINARY RESEARCH, 77(2), 162–166.

MeSH headings : Animals; Bacterial Infections / diagnosis; Bacterial Infections / veterinary; Dog Diseases / diagnosis; Dogs; Immunoassay / methods; Immunoassay / veterinary; Point-of-Care Systems; Sensitivity and Specificity; Urinary Tract Infections / diagnosis; Urinary Tract Infections / veterinary
TL;DR: The RIA test evaluated in this study accurately detected UTI of dogs, compared with detection with the criterion-referenced bacterial culture method, and could allow clinicians to diagnose UTI at the time of a patient visit and provide information useful for immediately initiating empirical antimicrobial treatment.
