Neoplasia is a common finding in African pygmy hedgehogs. Both skeletal and extraskeletal osteosarcomas have been previously reported in this species, but the only reported case of appendicular osteosarcoma was diagnosed postmortem. A 3-year-old intact female African pygmy hedgehog presented with a 10-day history of left foreleg swelling and lamene...

Objective To evaluate the time to hemoglobin oxygen desaturation in chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) with and without preoxygenation before isoflurane induction of anesthesia and rocuronium-induced apnea. Study design Prospective, randomized crossover study. Animals A total of 10 healthy adult Lohmann Brown-Lite hens. Methods Hens were anesth...
Article
Background Four cases of patellar luxation in rabbits have been reported in the literature, but the prevalence and etiology are unknown. This study aimed to characterize the presentation, anamnesis, prevalence, etiology and treatment options for patellar luxation in rabbits. Methods Medical records of 1249 rabbits presented to the Exotic Animal se...
Article
Background Inflammatory conditions involving the biliary system in reptiles appear to be rarely described. They are mostly reported as post-mortem findings, and their clinical management is therefore not often documented. Case description A 6.5-year-old captive-born, male inland bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps) presented with a one-year history o...
Article
Background: Olecranon fractures are uncommon, and their repair is challenging in many species. This case describes the surgical revision of a pin and tension band wire using a modified plate osteosynthesis technique in a ferret. Case description: A 2-year-old female ferret (Mustela putorius furo) was presented 30 minutes after undergoing a high-ene...
Article
Background: Medical treatment of clinical otitis media and interna in guinea pigs is often unsatisfactory. Total ear canal ablation and lateral bulla osteotomy are used successfully in dogs, cats, and rabbits to treat chronic, medically nonresponsive ear disease. However, in guinea pigs this surgery can cause death. This study aimed to evaluate and...

Upon physical examination, bradyarrhythmia (heart rate: 20 beats/min) and balance disorders were noted. Electrocardiography revealed a first-degree atrioventricular block (P-R interval: 360 ms). On echocardiography...

Objectives To determine the normal conjunctival bacterial and fungal flora in healthy rabbits, to compare the fungal flora from the conjunctival sac with periocular cutaneous fungal flora and to evaluate potential changes in type of micro‐organisms over time. Materials and Methods Samples from 50 pet rabbits with a normal ophthalmic examination we...
Article
Most pet rats have chronic respiratory disease, and end-stage complications are frequently fatal. Drug aerosol delivery in the form of nebulization of antibiotics, expectorants, and bronchodilators is often used as part of their treatment. As rats are obligate nasal breathers, aerosol delivery must be achieved by nasal inhalation, which has the ana...
Article

Both beavers presented with neurological signs. One beaver died naturally and despite attempted treatment, the other beaver was euthanatized because of severe clinical signs and poor prognos...
