Biochemical Effects of Routine Gonadectomy on Blood of Domestic Ferrets (Mustela putorius furo)


By: M. Whitehead n, O. Petritz n, M. Doerr n, M. Stoskopf n & T. Harrison n

MeSH headings : Animals; Castration; Female; Ferrets / blood; Ferrets / metabolism; Male
TL;DR: It is indicated that 1H-NMR spectroscopy of whole blood provides insight into metabolic perturbations in domestic ferrets undergoing surgery that are not detected in routine clinical chemistry panels. (via Semantic Scholar)

The Use of Alfaxalone in Quaker Parrots (Myiopsitta monachus)


By: M. Whitehead*, S. Hoppes*, J. Musser*, J. Perkins* & M. Lepiz*

author keywords: hyperexcitation; muscle tremors; alfaxalone; sedation; psittacine; avian; Quaker parrot; Myiopsitta monachus
MeSH headings : Adjuvants, Anesthesia / administration & dosage; Analysis of Variance; Anesthetics / administration & dosage; Animals; Dose-Response Relationship, Drug; Female; Heart Rate / drug effects; Hypnotics and Sedatives / administration & dosage; Injections, Intramuscular / veterinary; Male; Midazolam / administration & dosage; Parrots / physiology; Preanesthetic Medication / veterinary; Pregnanediones / administration & dosage; Respiration / drug effects
TL;DR: Alfaxalone as a sole agent resulted in muscle tremors and hyperexcitation during induction, which was attenuated by premedication with midazolam, and further investigation is warranted to characterize the effects of alfaxalone and drugs used to premedicate Quaker parrots.

Microbial integrity of preservative-free alfaxalone in a multiple-use system for two storage conditions and three handling techniques


By: M. Whitehead*, C. Vanetten*, M. Jacob* & T. Harrison*

MeSH headings : Anesthetics / administration & dosage; Animals; Colony Count, Microbial; Drug Contamination; Drug Packaging; Drug Storage; North Carolina; Pregnanediones / administration & dosage; Quality Control; Refrigeration; Sterilization; Temperature; Time Factors; United States; United States Food and Drug Administration; Universities
TL;DR: Alfaxalone is supported for 7 days when refrigerated and handled with a single puncture of the stopper by use of a protected port (closed system transfer device or nonclosed dispensing pin) and would appear to be a practical alternative for an injectable anesthetic. (via Semantic Scholar)
