Background The bispectral index (BIS) is an anaesthesia monitoring technique able to assess the level of central nervous system depression in humans and various animal species. In birds, it has been validated in chickens undergoing isoflurane anaesthesia. The aim of this study was to evaluate in an avian species the influence of isoflurane and sevo...
Article
Subacute ruminal acidosis is a common disease in captive non-domesticated ruminants and is mainly diagnosed by rumen fluid pH and rumen histology. Furthermore, differences in ruminant gastrointestinal histology have been hypothesized to correlate with the browser–grazer continuum. Twelve surplus addax antelope (Addax nasomaculatus) were divided int...

Blood samples were collected as part of routine clinical examination procedures from 120 clinically normal gyrfalcons (Falco rusticolus) during a 4-year period between the months of September and February. Serum protein electrophoresis (SPE) was carried out to establish reference values for the species and to characterize species-specific electroph...

Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is a rare but serious and potentially severe side effect of antiresorptive therapy with bisphosphonates or denosumab. Recently, a large animal minipig MRONJ model was introduced which led to early necrotic lesions in the majority of extraction sites after bisphosphonate administration. The aim of...
Article
Differences in macroscopic measurements of the gastrointestinal tract have been hypothesized to correlate with the browser–grazer continuum in the natural diet of ruminants. However, to what extent these characteristics represent species-specific traits, or respond to the actually ingested diet, remains to be investigated. Twelve surplus addax ante...

Used since the 1970s as an avian anesthetic, the neurosteroid alfaxalone has been reformulated to avoid side effects from its castor oil excipient. This case report describes the clinical use of a new alfaxalone formulation (Alfaxan) as an intravenous anesthetic induction agent in wild isoflurane-anesthetized rose flamingos (Phoenicopterus roseus)....
Article
To describe bispectral index (BIS) findings and compare them with cardiovascular and respiratory trends during cardiac arrest and successful CPR in a propofol-anesthetized calf. A 3-month-old calf was anesthetized as part of a research project. A thromboxane analog drug (U46619) was administered IV to induce pulmonary hypertension. Within 10 minute...

Blood samples were collected from 102 clinically healthy gyr falcons (Falco rusticolus) over a time period of approximately 3 years as part of routine examination procedures. Standard blood chemistry analyses were carried out to establish normal reference values for the species. Plasma chemistry analyses included alkaline phosphatase (ALP), amylase...

The objective of this study was to compare the effects of 3 different fluid types for resuscitation after experimentally induced hemorrhagic shock in anesthetized chickens and to evaluate partial pressures of carbon dioxide measured in arterial blood (Paco2), with a transcutaneous monitor (TcPco2), with a gastric intraluminal monitor (GiPco2), and...

A 1-month-old male flat-coated retriever was anaesthetized for correction of oesophageal constriction caused by a vascular ring anomaly. Anaesthesia was uneventfully induced with intravenous fentanyl, diazepam, and propofol and maintained with isoflurane in oxygen and air. An intercostal block with bupivacaine and lidocaine was performed, and addit...

An 800 kg Swiss cow, eighth months gravid, was presented for anaesthesia to repair metacarpal fracture. The cow was premedicated with intravenous isoxsuprine, butorphanol, ketoprofen, and xylazine IM and induced with ketamine and diazepam IV. In lateral recumbency, the trachea was intubated, and isoflurane in oxygen and air was administered. Despit...

In veterinary medicine, point-of-care testing (POCT) techniques have become popular, since they provide immediate results and only small amounts of blood are needed. However, their accuracy is controversial. Pigs are often used for research purposes and accurate measurement of haemoglobin (Hb) is important during invasive procedures. The aim of thi...
Article
Background Several reports have confirmed the efficacy of Intralipid® (containing soya bean oil, egg phospholipids, glycerin and water) in the therapy of systemic local anesthetic intoxication. Pretreatment with Intralipid® shifted the dose-response to bupivacaine-induced asystole in rats. Whether intravenous anesthesia with propofol in the widely...
Article
To evaluate effects of racemic ketamine and S-ketamine in gazelles. 21 male gazelles (10 Rheem gazelles [Gazella subgutturosa marica] and 11 Subgutturosa gazelles [Gazella subgutturosa subgutturosa]), 6 to 67 months old and weighing (mean±SD) 19 ± 3 kg. In a randomized, blinded crossover study, a combination of medetomidine (80 μg/kg) with racemic...
Article
Local anesthetic (LA) intoxication with cardiovascular arrest is a potential fatal complication of regional anesthesia. Lipid resuscitation has been recommended for the treatment of LA-induced cardiac arrest. Aim of the study was to compare four different rescue regimens using epinephrine and/or lipid emulsion and vasopressin to treat cardiac arres...
Article
Objectives: Local anesthetic (LA) intoxication with severe hemodynamic compromise is a potential catastrophic event. Lipid resuscitation has been recommended for the treatment of LA-induced cardiac arrest. However, there are no data about effectiveness of Intralipid for the treatment of severe cardiovascular compromise prior to cardiac arrest. Aim...
Article
Systemic local anesthetic (LA) toxicity resulting from inadvertent intravascular injection of LA is a rare but potentially fatal event. Early recognition of intravascular injection and approaches to improve therapeutic safety are required. This study investigated the influence of intravascular injection dose rate of bupivacaine on bupivacaine plasm...

Several reports have confirmed the efficacy of Intralipid® (containing soya bean oil, egg phospholipids, glycerin and water) in the therapy of systemic local anesthetic intoxication. Pretreatment with Intralipid® shifted the dose-response to bupivacaine-induced asystole in rats. Whether intravenous anesthesia with propofol in the widely used medium...

Red kites (Milvus milvus) are birds of prey known to feign death in the presence of humans. An adult wild red kite was anesthetized with isoflurane for coelioscopy. During surgery, heart rate and respiratory rate ranged from 240 to 260 beats per minute and from 16 to 28 breaths rates per minute, respectively. Pupil and corneal reflexes remained pre...
Article
Intravascular application of a small dose of local anesthetics (LA) with epinephrine as well as larger doses of LA under sevoflurane anesthesia results in increase in T-wave amplitude in the electrocardiogram (ECG). The aim of this study was to elucidate whether propofol anesthesia affects these ECG alterations or not. Thirty neonatal pigs were ran...
Article
Tooth wear is often suggested as an important factor limiting the life span of free-ranging wildlife. Given the frequent occurrence of poor dental health in captive animals reported in the literature, one would expect tooth health to be a limiting factor in captivity as well. Additionally, it could be assumed that brachydont (browsing) animals are...
Article
To determine the effect of inhalation of isoflurane at end-tidal concentrations greater than, equal to, and less than the minimum anesthetic concentration (MAC) on bispectral index (BIS) in chickens. Animals-10 chickens. For each chicken, the individual MAC of isoflurane was determined by use of the toe-pinch method. After a 1-week interval, chicke...

In 2007, two different events for teaching principles in zoo and wildlife medicine and for introducing veterinary students to scientific work were organized, the “Zoo Research Camp 2007” at the Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation, Qatar, and the “First EAZWV Summer School” at Basle Zoo. Apart from support from the hosting facilities, events were organiz...
Article
The isthmus at the caecocolical junction in domestic equids is well described. Like another isthmus between the ansa proximalis coli (the colonic fermentation chamber or ‘large colon’) and the colon transversum (the distal or ‘small’ colon), this spot represents not only a potential anatomical feature contributing to particle ingesta retention but...
