A pair of anal glands or sacs, located on either side of the ANUS, that produce and store a dark, foul-smelling fluid in carnivorous animals such as MEPHITIDAE and DOGS. The expelled fluid is used as a defensive repellent (in skunks) or a material to mark territory (in dogs).
Tumors or cancer of the anal gland.
Large, branched, specialized sweat glands that empty into the upper portion of a HAIR FOLLICLE instead of directly onto the SKIN.
Diseases of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris). This term does not include diseases of wild dogs, WOLVES; FOXES; and other Canidae for which the heading CARNIVORA is used.
Discharge of URINE, liquid waste processed by the KIDNEY, from the body.
Infrequent or difficult evacuation of FECES. These symptoms are associated with a variety of causes, including low DIETARY FIBER intake, emotional or nervous disturbances, systemic and structural disorders, drug-induced aggravation, and infections.
The domestic cat, Felis catus, of the carnivore family FELIDAE, comprising over 30 different breeds. The domestic cat is descended primarily from the wild cat of Africa and extreme southwestern Asia. Though probably present in towns in Palestine as long ago as 7000 years, actual domestication occurred in Egypt about 4000 years ago. (From Walker's Mammals of the World, 6th ed, p801)
The first of four extra-embryonic membranes to form during EMBRYOGENESIS. In REPTILES and BIRDS, it arises from endoderm and mesoderm to incorporate the EGG YOLK into the DIGESTIVE TRACT for nourishing the embryo. In placental MAMMALS, its nutritional function is vestigial; however, it is the source of INTESTINAL MUCOSA; BLOOD CELLS; and GERM CELLS. It is sometimes called the vitelline sac, which should not be confused with the VITELLINE MEMBRANE of the egg.
An unpleasant sensation induced by noxious stimuli which are detected by NERVE ENDINGS of NOCICEPTIVE NEURONS.
An examination of chemicals in the blood.
Individuals with a degree in veterinary medicine that provides them with training and qualifications to treat diseases and injuries of animals.
One of two salivary glands in the neck, located in the space bound by the two bellies of the digastric muscle and the angle of the mandible. It discharges through the submandibular duct. The secretory units are predominantly serous although a few mucous alveoli, some with serous demilunes, occur. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Gastrointestinal disturbances, skin eruptions, or shock due to allergic reactions to allergens in food.

Thin-walled sacs or spaces which function as a part of the respiratory system in birds, fishes, insects, and mammals.

Squamous cell carcinoma of the anal sac in five dogs. (1/21)

Tumors of the perianal area of dogs are common and include multiple tumor types. Whereas perianal adenomas occur often, adenocarcinomas of the apocrine glands of the anal sac occur less frequently. A review of the literature revealed no reports of squamous cell carcinomas arising from the epithelial lining of the anal sac. Squamous cell carcinomas originating from the lining of the anal sac were diagnosed in five dogs. Microscopically, the tumors consisted of variably sized invasive nests and cords of epithelial cells displaying squamous differentiation. Four of the five dogs were euthanatized because of problems associated with local infiltration by the tumors. In the fifth dog, there was no evidence of tumor 7 months after surgical removal, but further follow up was not available.  (+info)

Possible coding for recognition of sexes, individuals and species in anal gland volatiles of Mustela eversmanni and M. sibirica. (2/21)

With a combination of solvent extraction and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, we found eight new compounds in the two sympatric Mustela species, M. eversmanni and M. sibirica. These compounds had not been detected by headspace sampling with solvent desorption. Two of the newly detected compounds are nitrogen-containing compounds, indole and o-aminoacetophenone and the remaining are sulfur-containing volatiles. By comparing same and opposite sexes between the two Mustela species, we found that qualitative differences in the anal gland secretion are most likely to be used to code for information about species, corresponding to the idea of digital coding. In the Siberian weasel (M. sibirica), both presence or absence of sex-specific compounds (Z-2-ethyl-3-methylthietane only in females) and relative abundance of some compounds between males and females could be used to code for information about sex, corresponding to the idea of digital and analog coding, respectively. In the steppe polecat (M. eversmanni), only quantitative differences provided the possibility for inter-sexual communication. Thus coding for information about sex appeared to be digital. Coding for individual information could also be either digital or analog or both through the presence or absence of certain compounds and/or the difference in the relative abundances of certain compounds among individuals. Comparing with other Mustela spp., we failed to find a congruence between the chemical composition of anal gland secretions and the phylogenetic relationship among the species in this genus.  (+info)

Differential activation of glomeruli in the ferret's main olfactory bulb by anal scent gland odours from males and females: an early step in mate identification. (3/21)

Peripheral anosmia was previously found to disrupt sex discrimination and partner preference in male and female ferrets. Here we show directly that volatile anal scent gland odourants from male and female ferrets activated overlapping but distinguishable clusters of glomeruli located in the ventral-caudal portion of the main olfactory bulb (MOB) of breeding ferrets of both sexes. No glomerular activation was seen in the accessory olfactory bulb (AOB). The profile of MOB glomerular activation induced in oestrous females by male anal scents was very similar to that induced by direct contact with a male during mating, and oestrogen treatment failed to alter the profile of glomerular activation induced in ovo-hysterectomized females by male anal scents. In rodents, 'atypical' MOB glomeruli, which have dense acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in the neuropil, may be activated by body odours from conspecifics. No such AChE-staining 'atypical' glomeruli were found in the ferret's MOB, suggesting that in this carnivore they do not constitute a subset of MOB glomeruli that respond to body odourants. In ferrets of both sexes, volatile body odourants that are detected by the main as opposed to the vomeronasal-AOB accessory olfactory system may play a critical role in mate identification.  (+info)

Metastatic anal sac adenocarcinoma in a dog presenting for acute paralysis. (4/21)

A 4-year old, female spayed terrier was referred for hind end paresis that rapidly progressed to paralysis. Spinal radiographs revealed vertebral collapse and bony lysis. Myelography confirmed spinal cord compression and surgical exploration found an extradural soft tissue mass. Metastatic anal sac adenocarcinoma was diagnosed at postmortem examination.  (+info)

Anal sac gland carcinoma in a cat. (5/21)

A perianal mass in a 15-year-old domestic shorthair cat with a history of a firm, painful swelling in the left ventrolateral perianal region was surgically excised and submitted for light microscopic evaluation. Histologically, this was a poorly demarcated, unencapsulated, multilobulated neoplasm that invaded surrounding perirectal skeletal muscle bundles. Lobules were composed of sheets and acinar arrangements of cuboidal to round neoplastic epithelial cells with scant to moderate eosinophilic to amphophilic cytoplasm and a round or oval nucleus with coarse chromatin. Mitotic figures were 2 per 40 x objective field. Acinar lumina sometimes contained eosinophilic proteinaceous material or cell debris. These microscopic features are consistent with anal sac gland carcinoma. This is the second report of this neoplasm in a cat.  (+info)

Adjuvant electrochemotherapy for incompletely excised anal sac carcinoma in a dog. (6/21)

Canine anal sac gland carcinoma (ASGC) is a frequently described neoplasm that is highly aggressive and can frequently lead to metastatic spread. In this paper, we describe the successful treatment of an incompletely excised ASGC by using cisplatin selectively driven within the tumor cells by trains of biphasic pulses. The dog received two courses of electrochemotherapy 14 days apart. Neither systemic nor local toxicities were detected during the whole course of therapy. The dog is still in complete remission after 18 months. Electrochemotherapy is a safe and efficacious adjuvant therapy for ASGC and warrants further investigation in order to standardize its protocols.  (+info)

How are these diseases treated? The treatment for impaction is to express the sacs and clean out the solidified material. For infection, the sacs must be expressed and antibiotics administered to kill the bacteria. If the sacs abscess, the abscess must be surgically drained and antibiotics administered.. How likely is it for anal sac disease to occur again? It is not very common for cats to have recurrent anal sac disease. However, some overweight cats will have chronic anal sac problems. The anal sacs of obese cats do not drain well, thus these cats are predisposed to recurrent problems. If a cat has several episodes of anal sac disease, the anal sacs can be removed surgically. Because these sacs are virtually unused, there is no loss to the cat. It is the only way to permanently cure the problem.. Are there any common surgical complications?. Surgery requires general anesthesia which always carries some degree of risk, whether the patient is a cat or a person. However, modern anesthetics make ...
Dogs have two anal sacs on each side of the anus, at about the five and seven oclock positions (in reference to the circumference of the anus). Problems with the anal sacs are extremely common in small animals, especially dogs. Anal sac disease is classified into three different types: Impaction Inflammation (sacculitis) Abscesses The anal sacs…
Your veterinarian will perform a thorough physical exam on your cat, taking into account the background history of symptoms and possible incidents that might have led to this condition. A blood chemical profile will be conducted, including a complete blood count, an electrolyte panel and a urinalysis to rule out other causes of disease.. If the anal sacs are easily palpable during the physical exam, they are considered to be enlarged. The normal clear or pale yellow-brown secretion will have turned to a thick, pasty brown secretion if the anal glands are impacted. Abscessed anal sacs will have a red-brown exudate, and will show signs of swelling and redness, or they may be clearly ruptured. The anal sac exudate will be sent to a laboratory for culture and sensitivity testing.. ...
Anal Sac Tumors(apocrine gland adenocarcinomas). These are not often painful and do not usually have redness on the overlying skin or any open wounds. They occur mostly in older female dogs (spayed as well as unspayed). They can cause an increase in blood calcium levels, which can cause clinical signs such as increased drinking and urination. They most often spread to the sublumbar lymph nodes, which are located in the abdomen right below the lumbar (lower back) vertebrae. If the lymph nodes become enlarged due to spread of the cancer, they can obstruct flow of feces by putting pressure on the colon. This may show itself as difficulty defecating or producing ribbon-like stools. Dogs with anal sac tumors can also have symptoms associated with other types of anal sac disease (scooting, excessive licking, straining to defecate, reluctance to sit, or sitting asymmetrically ...
How is anal sac disease treated? After a thorough examination and diagnosis, a veterinarian or veterinarian technician will perform a manual expression of the anal glands. During the expression, if the vet or vet tech notices that a more serious infection is present, the anal glands will be doused in a sterile saline solution, and an antibiotic ointment will be applied to the affected areas. If your pet has frequent reoccurrences of anal gland infections, the veterinarian may teach you how to express their anal glands on your own or you can schedule a technician appointment for expression. This can prevent frequent veterinary visits and allows you to perform expression the second you notice your pet suffering. For pets with ongoing infections, we might suggest combining anal gland expression with preventative treatment methods which can include implementing a weight management program, increasing fiber intake, and for more extreme cases, surgical removal of the anal sacs and any present tumors; ...
TREATMENT. The treatment of dogs with AGACAC depends on whether the anal sac tumor is confined to the anal sac or metastatic to other sites. Surgery is recommended for dogs with non-metastatic AGASAC and AGASAC metastatic to the sublumbar lymph nodes (and possibly other intra-abdominal organs and the sternal lymph node). Chemotherapy is recommended for dogs with metastatic AGASAC, but not dogs with non-metastatic AGASAC. The role of radiation therapy has not been defined, but there is a strong potential postoperative radiation therapy may have some benefit in dogs with AGASAC metastatic to the sublumbar lymph nodes.. PROGNOSIS. The prognosis for dogs with AGACAC ranges from guarded to very good depending on the extent of disease. For dogs with non-metastatic AGASAC, the overall median survival time is , 1745 days with median survival times of 1612 days for surgery alone, , 1009 days for surgery and chemotherapy, and , 1163 days for surgery and radiation therapy. For dogs with AGASAC metastatic ...
Tumours of the apocrine glands of the anal sac represent 2% of all canine skin and subcutaneous tumours, and 17% of all perianal malignancies. Most tumours are malignant (adenocarcinoma) with 46-90% of tumours having spread at time of diagnosis. Early diagnosis, aggressive surgery and adjunctive therapy are crucial in achieving the best possible outcome for an individual patient. In this review, Katie McNaught and Professor Jo Morris of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences aim to highlight the clinical signs and importance of early diagnosis and staging and discuss the different treatment options available.. ...

Anal sacs (also called anal glands) are small structures located on each side of the anus. They can become impacted and infected, and require treatment.
The anal sacs are two small pouches located on either side of the anus at approximately the four oclock and eight oclock positions. The walls of the sac are lined with a large number of sebaceous (sweat) glands that produce a foul smelling fluid.
Anal sac disorder is very common in animals. It starts off with an impaction of the sacs and can progress to an infection or abscess.
The anal sacs are two small pouches located on either side of the anus at approximately the four oclock and eight oclock positions. The walls of the sac produce a foul smelling fluid which is released whenever the cat passes a bowel movement. The anal sacs or their ducts can become inflamed or infected due to a variety of causes. Most cats will respond well to pain relief medications and antibiotics (for several days until the swelling and inflammation have subsided. If a cat has several episodes of anal sac disease, and diet or supplements do not relieve the problem, the anal sacs can be removed surgically.. Login Required ...
Anal sac inflammation and scooting is a common dog problem. When dogs scoot, they slide their bottoms across the floor. Causes include itching from food allergies, diarrhea, and pain from inflammation or constipation.

Vaginal and vulvar tumors are uncommon in dogs. Knowledge of canine primary clitoral neoplasia is restricted to a few case reports, and only carcinomas have been reported. Cytologic and histologic features reported in the literature seem to overlap with those of canine apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinoma (AGASA). Clinical features also recall those of canine AGASA, such as locoregional metastases and hypercalcemia of malignancy (HM). In this study, 6 cases of primary canine clitoral carcinomas (CCCs), with and without HM, were investigated by means of cytology, histopathology, electron microscopy, and immunohistochemistry for neuroendocrine markers including chromogranin A (CGA), synaptophysin (SYN), neuron-specific enolase (NSE), and S-100 ...

The aim of this study was to assess the effects of Cd in the brain of peacock blennies Salaria pavo, a species used as a bioindicator of water pollution. A sublethal contamination of 2 mg CdCl2 L−1 was performed over periods of 1, 4, 10 and 15 days. Total Cd accumulation was measured in brains and displayed low concentrations throughout the experiment. Partial-length cDNA of different ATP-binding cassette transporters (abcb1, abcc1, abcc2, abcg2 proteins) and acetylcholinesterase (ache) were characterized. mRNA expressions profiles displayed an up-regulation of abcc2 mRNA after 4 days of Cd exposure only while abcg2 mRNA ...
Diagnosis. Your veterinarian can diagnose many anal gland issues by examining the area and feeling the glands. For pets that are in a lot of pain, sedation may be recommended so that a thorough examination can be performed. During the examination, your veterinarian will look for redness, signs of pain, swelling, or the presence of pus, which indicates infection. If a thickening, lump,or growth is present, your veterinarian may recommend a biopsy (collecting and testing a small sample of tissue) to help determine whether the tissue is cancerous.. Treatment. Expressing the anal sacs describes the manual removal of fluid that has accumulated in the anal glands. This can be performed at the veterinary hospitalor even at home by a pet owner after careful instruction. Some groomers routinely express anal sacs before bathing pets. If a pet is having any type of problem with the anal sacs, it is best to let a veterinarian examine the pet and express the sacs if necessary.. Examination gloves should be ...
If you thought anal sac secretions were gross, just wait until the glands abscess and rupture. Not only is this incredibly painful for the cat, its also very inconvenient for the owner, who ends up having to rinse out the affected gland every day and cope with a cat who has to live in a cone collar for a week or so.. In healthy cats, the anal sacs quietly go about their business and dont cause any harm. But, as I learned with Siouxsie, sometimes elder kitties have a harder time taking care of their business back there and this can result in impaction. In cats with chronic anal gland problems, vets may recommend surgery to remove the glands.. ...
Our precious 7-Year-Old Leo was diagnosed with a tumor near his anal gland (Anal Sac Adenocarcinoma, I think). Obviously, we are beyond sad. We had it removed and the tests came back positive for cancer. While we caught it fairly early, the cancer cells went right to the edge of the tumor which means the vet probably didnt get them all. Leos rear lymph nodes were also a bit enlarged, so yesterday (2 weeks after first surgery) we had those removed. They are being tested now for cancer.

Based on these new symptoms, their vet did further tests. What he found was devastating. Jack had anal sac adeno carcinoma. And, as is typical with this disease, it had metastasized to his lungs.. A relentless cancer, anal sac adeno carcinoma is not common in poodles or in male dogs. Worse, this disease is so aggressive that the tiny little tumor in Jacks lung could grow at lighting speed. If the couple had not gotten him to the vet when they did, Jack would likely have been dead in a month. Todd and Linda were devastated. They asked themselves, Why didnt we see the symptoms sooner?. But the truth is, nature doesnt allow it. Mother Nature built in a safety system to protect animals from appearing vulnerable to predators.

If your dogs anal glands are impacted but theres no sign of infection, your vet can show you how to express, or empty, the glands yourself. You can do this by applying pressure to the glands with your fingers. Youll start below the glands and gently but firmly press up to empty them of anything that could be blocking the ducts. Wear rubber gloves while you do this, and cover the anus with a piece of gauze or cotton ball to collect the secretions and fecal matter that may come out of the glands; these secretions have a foul aroma and you dont want to get them on your clothing, furniture or carpet. If your dogs anal glands have become infected, be may need antibiotics. Abscesses of the anal glands need to be lanced and cleaned by the vet. Scar tissue from abscesses can damage the nerves and tissues of the anal region, and can even result in fecal incontinence, a condition in which your dog loses the ability to hold his stool. Some dogs are more prone to anal gland impaction than others. Some ...
When anal sacs do not easily express, they may be impacted. This can become painful for the dog as the glands become more full and irritated, and it may lead to other problems, such as anal sacculitis (inflammation of the gland), anal gland abscess (local infection), and anal gland rupture (when an abscess creates an opening through the outer skin to drain out the pus). If impacted anal glands get to this point, an owner will likely notice not only scooting behavior but also their dog licking at their back end, vocalizing due to from pain, and showing a bloody discharge. Every veterinarian will have a different protocol for treating these symptoms, but it will likely include a combination of antibiotics, pain management, and cleaning and flushing the affected anal gland or wound. Additionally, an Elizabethan collar (cone) will be necessary to prevent the pup from causing further irritation and delayed wound healing to the site.. So what if your veterinarian rules out the above conditions? What ...
By Hannah Evans, DVM, Veterinary Anesthetist for VNIoC. A 10-year-old female spayed German Shepherd dog presented to the neurology service for new onset of seizure activity. Her previous medical history included hypothyroidism (well-controlled on medication), anal sac adenocarcinoma (surgically removed 2 years prior), and lumbosacral disc disease (surgically treated approximately 4 months prior). Her medications at that time included soloxine, carprofen, gabapentin, and amitriptyline. Levetiracetam was added to her regimen the night prior by the emergency service. Neurologic exam that morning revealed mild paraparesis and proprioceptive ataxia. Differential diagnoses included neoplasia, inflammatory disease, and less likely idiopathic epilepsy given the patients age at time of onset.. An MRI of the brain and skull was recommended under general anesthesia. The dog was classified as an ASA III patient due to the concern for brain disease, but with mild clinical signs. She was pre-medicated with ...

Not all dogs need their anal glands expressed, only some dogs do and often these are dogs who are particularly predisposed either due to conformation or from being overweight, but why do dogs have anal glands in the first place and what causes them to need to be expressed? Veterinarian Dr. Ivana Crnec clarifies the role anal glands in dogs play and provides insights on things that can go wrong.
Hello there, I have a small Terrier who is about to turn 9 years old. He never had anal gland issues until about 6 months ago, when I noticed him scooting. I have taken him to my vet and the techs expressed his glands (one was impacted and came out like paste). Since then I have returned monthly and had them expressed, no problems.. My question is this….. His normal defecation isnt nearly as large and firm (not runny but soft). I asked the vet tech if he needed more dietary fiber to increase his stool volume and if that would help his glands. She told me no but in my research of the issue it appears that many vets do believe that fiber seems to help. What is your opinion of fiber offering any aid in anal gland maintenance and also will it help his loose stools?. Anal sacs are normal structures in dogs and cats, one on either side of the anus.

Adults occur in the intertidal zone and shallow bottoms, on rocks or sand between pebbles and vegetation (Ref. 5981). Often in brackish waters down to 5 ppt (Ref. 5981). Inhabit crevices or piddock holes, males remain in cavities above water-level during low tide (Ref. 5981). Feed on benthic invertebrates, mainly mollusks, also algae (Ref. 5981). Also ingest large amounts of aquatic insects and pupae (Ref. 94105). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Mature males adopt a passive role during courtship, rarely court females, do not defend nest territory, but provide parental care to eggs. Sneaker males assume a female-like behavior in order to approach the nests of nesting males and parasitically fertilize the eggs (Ref. 94113). Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205).

Q: My dog had blood in his poo a few weeks ago. He seemed fine and it went away. Then a couple days ago I noticed it again and now he just had some more this morning. He seems fine and he hasnt had any accidents or diarrhea. Does this mean he has cancer or something serious? Could it just be hemorrhoids?. A: Blood in the feces should always be investigated. Most of the time it is not a life-threatening problem if caught early. The most common cause is a parasite or bacterial infection. These problems can generally be diagnosed and treated by bringing a fecal sample to your veterinarian for analysis.. Dogs dont generally get hemorrhoids but they can get painful infections or growths from the anal sacs that are on each side of the rectal opening. The sacs hold a strong smelling fluid used in scent marking and they are prone to infections and impactions.. Be sure to check your dog for dried fecal material under his tail. He could have matted hair or crusted feces that make it hard for him to have ...
Constipation is listed as just 1 of the facet effects of quite a few of the medicines that are put to use right away soon after surgical procedures. Again, check out to give the medicine with foods to decrease stomach upset. Whilst dogs can tolerate infant aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen can be toxic and dosages will have to be thoroughly monitored. If the anal sacs are not emptied the secretion will get thick and gritty.. Most dog owners are keenly in tune with their buddys conduct, and it is significant to choose up on any observed differences. Then when you spot a light inner region as you minimize dogs nails, its imperative that you quit clipping-to stay away from triggering your dog pain. Just one particular far more example was when our puppy Oreo had to have surgical treatment in her chest place.

The average duration of proestrus in mature bitches is nine days, with a normal range of 0 to 27 days [4]. Proestrus is usually simply defined as that stage of the estrous cycle where noticeable signs of serosanguinous (thin, bloody) vaginal discharge begin. Varying degrees of bloody vaginal discharge are typically seen. The nature of the discharge is typically bright red and voluminous at the onset of proestrus and then becomes less voluminous towards the end. However, it should be noted there is great variation amongst bitches in regards to the amount and nature of their discharge. During proestrus, females are attractive to male dogs, but generally refuse matings. Pheromones, which are present in the females vaginal secretions, anal sac expressions, and urine are responsible for this attractiveness [5-8]. Sexual reflexes such as flagging of the tail (elevation of the tail away from the vulva and swaying of the hips from side to side) in response to touching the perineal region (area between ...
I will pay for the blood tests, the daughter suddenly volunteered. Chronic skin diseases are costly to treat and in this case, it was not only the recurrence of itchiness and whining but also money matters. Unless the cause can be identified and can be easily treated, skin diseases are hard to cure in some dogs. In this dog, the ventral groin area is no long black, due to previous steroid jabs. But the paws were still black. On detailed examination, I would say the big skin warts on the four paws would be due to the spread of these viral warts by the dog licking as the body seemed free of the warts unlike other old dogs. The dogs anal sac was voluminous with dark brown thick viscous oil. I asked my intern to express the glands and she managed to get 5% out. I showed her how to do it and expressed over 3 ml of the oil while another intern videoed the procedure. The broken tail needed to be amputated. This was another advice I gave and the mother said: Earlier the tail was black. I massaged it ...
There are many causes of bloody stool, the most simple being a small tear in the anus caused by straining during a bowel movement. This would cause a small amount of blood only once or twice before healing. However, bloody stool is often associated with diarrhea, vomiting or difficult bowel movements, in which case it may be caused by something more serious. If the blood is on the outside of the stool, the blood is in the anal canal. If its deeper within the stool, it is coming from an internal cause. If it is black and tarry, thats caused by internal bleeding deeper in the body, and you should consult a veterinary immediately. Common causes of bloody stool include consumption of a sharp object, parasites, bacterial infection, problems with the intestines, colon or rectum bleeding, bowel cancer, anal sac infections, irritable bowel disease, blood clotting problems or allergies. Bloody stool could also be caused by consumption of a toxin or other substance that upset your dog stomach, including ...
Todays Veterinary Business.. The addition of a state-of-the-art linear accelerator to Northwest Veterinary Specialists will revolutionize the way cancer patients are treated at our hospital, and likely in the Pacific Northwest, in general, said Matt Dowling, DVM, MS, DACVIM. Radiation therapy is the standard of care for some cancers like brain tumors and nasal tumors. Radiation also plays a very important role in other types of cancers including oral tumors, bone tumors, anal sac tumors, urogenital tumors, soft tissue sarcomas, and a variety of other skin cancers.. Northwest Veterinary Specialists new linear accelerator will have intensity-modulated (IMRT) and stereotactic (SRT) treatment capabilities. These types of radiation treatment allow us to more precisely target tumors, which allows for improved disease control and fewer side effects from treatment.. Stereotactic radiation therapy tends to treat a relatively small subset in that it focuses on tumors that need local control, Dr. ...
Skunk spray is a degradation product from urine. It is stored in anal sacs and released whenever the skunk feels threatened. Skunks are not aggressive animals and would rather retreat from an enemy, but if threatened it will arch his back, raise his tail high, and start hissing and stomping his front feet on the ground. This is a warning. He may even do hand stands with his back and tail arched toward the enemy. Finally, he will bend into a U-shape with his head and his butt facing the enemy and let it go, directing his spray at the enemys face.. Skunks are able to spray an enemy up to 16 feet away (accurately for the first 10 feet). An animal that chases or otherwise frightens a skunk may end up covered with this foul substance. Frequently, the face of the dog or cat is the primary target for the skunk spray. Along with the odor, the spray can produce nausea and burning of the eyes, although the effects are temporary and will not cause permanent damage. Nevertheless, if you notice redness, ...

Mimi was hardly older than a pup herself when she was found, pregnant, on the streets. Mimi had nobody to care for her, or her unborn puppies, but she never gave up hope. She sought out the kindest of humans who happened to pass by and she begged to be saved. Mimi devoted her heart to her puppies and even two surrogate orphans, but it turns out this big heart doesnt always work well (and neither does her bum). :( Mimi has genetically deformed anal sacs which require curative surgery but, shockingly, Mimis heart stopped under anaesthesia. Heart medication was administered to bring her back to life and the surgery was aborted. A cardiologist has diagnosed sick sinus syndrome, a rare congenital heart condition. So now this sweet girl needs her surgery in a specialist hospital with cardiology equipment and experts at hand. This will cost around £4.000, please help us fund it. Thank you x ...

Over the weekend I attended a conference at the University of Chicago on The Biological Basis of Preferences and Behavior, and Balazs Szentes stole the show with a new theory of the peacocks tail. In Balazs theory a world without large and colorful peacock plumage is simply not stable.. A large tail is an evolutionary disadvantage: it serves no useful purpose and it slows down the male and makes him conspicuous to predators. So why do genes for large tails appear and take over the population of male peacocks? Balazs answer is based on matching frictions in the peacock mating market. Suppose female peacocks choose which type of male peacock to mate with: small or large tails. Once the females sort themselves across these two separate markets, the peacocks are matched and they mate.. The female peacocks are differentiated by health, and within a peacock couple health partially compensates for the disadvantageous tail. In the model this means that healthy females who mate with big-tailed ...
The anal sacs are two small pouches located on either side of the anus at approximately the four oclock and eight oclock positions. The walls of the sac produce a foul smelling fluid which is released whenever the dog passes a bowel movement. Bacteria that are normally present in the feces can readily travel up the ducts and enter the sacs resulting in infection. The first sign is often scooting or dragging the rear along the ground. Treatment for impaction involves expressing or emptying the sacs. Antibiotics are often prescribed. Most dogs will require pain relief medications for several days until the swelling and inflammation have subsided. In recurrent or severe cases, surgical removal of the sacs may be necessary.. ...

Male organ odor is the bane of many a mans existence (and a major complaint from partners.) The apocrine glands are largely responsible for much of that smell.
One of the most common types of canine cancer and the number one cause of canine death, cutaneous mast cell tumor, has been treated with steroids and antihistamines and various human oncology drugs for years. Finally, a specific oncology drug for these specific canine cancers has been developed and approved for veterinary use: Palladia (toceranib phosphate) produced by Pfizer Animal Health Inc.
Apocrine is a term used to classify exocrine glands in the study of histology. Cells which are classified as apocrine bud their secretions off through the plasma membrane producing membrane-bound vesicles in the lumen. The apical portion of the secretory cell of the gland pinches off and enters the lumen. It loses part of its cytoplasm in their secretions. Apocrine glands are found primarily in the breast of lactating mammals (i.e. the mammary glands are apocrine glands).. Secretion occurs when the release of secretory materials is accompanied with loss of part of cytoplasm. Apocrine secretion is less damaging to the gland than holocrine secretion (which destroys a cell) but more damaging than merocrine secretion (exocytosis). An example of true apocrine glands is the mammary glands, responsible for secreting breast milk.[1]. ...

Cusimanses are small mongooses. They have a slender body with short legs and a short tail (146 to 210 mm) that tapers evenly from its base to its tip. The forelimbs are plantigrade, while it is uncertain whether the hindlimbs are plantigrade or semidigitgrade. Claws on the forefeet are longer than those on the hindfeet, but both have well developed digital, interdigital, thenar, and hypothenar pads. Also, the soles of the hindfeet are naked (without fur) except for the last one-third by the heel. The head of this animal has round, short ears, and a snout that extends well beyond the lower lip. The pupils of the eyes have the shape of elongated (horizontally) ovals. Females of this species have six mammae and both sexes have a pair of anal scent glands. (Goldmand, 1987).. The fur on these animals varies in texture and in color. Body fur color tends to be a mix of browns, greys, and yellows. The guard hairs are long and bristle-like and lighter in color at their tips. The dense underfur is lighter ...
The other British species is the Butterfly Blenny, Blennius ocellaris. It is usually be found in water deeper than 10 metres off the south-west coast only. It is rarely seen by divers and only occasionally in Public Aquaria. I would be pleased to hear of reports of this fish. Alan Russell has found this fish at extreme low water off the Isle of Man coast. Experienced rockpoolers will not experience any difficulties in separating the three species. The Common Blenny is by far the commonest species between the tides, although Tompots can be quite common in deeper water. However, identification from photographs in some of the poorer natural history books should be treated with caution. Blennies have been mistaken for Gobies (Gobiidae) in popular books. Both families contain small fish, but there should not be any problem differentiating the two families if you get the opportunity of having a close look. The main differences are listed below. Instant identification from just a fleeting glance is not ...

In fishes, the parents presence generally improves embryos survival through parental care, but it is also associated with some disadvantages such as clutch cannibalism and loss of male physical condition. Captive breeding of the river blenny Salaria fluviatilis might improve if these disadvantages were avoided by artificially replacing parental care benefits in the lab. Before accepting this procedure, it should be studied whether embryo development is dependent or not on any other unknown effect related to the parents presence. In this study, the ontogenetic sequence and several morphological structures - standard length, head height, jaw length and yolk-sac volume - from embryos reared both in the presence and in the absence of the parents were compared. At day 11 after oviposition, in the parents absence treatment, well-developed embryos were obtained, but a smaller size of the yolk-sac, a greater head height and a tendency to have a greater jaw length than in the parents presence ...

Adults occur in rivers and brooks (Ref. 4342), in relatively shallow water as well as in low altitude lakes (Ref. 30578), on stone bottom; in streams, deepest and fastest microhabitats are preferred and sometimes coastal lagoons with low salinity (Ref. 59043). Reported from marine environment (Ref. 58342). A territorial species that lives up to 5 years (Ref. 59043). Adults feed on small benthic organisms, aquatic insects and pupae (Ref. 94105). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Females spawn for the first time at the end of the first year and spawning lasts up to 3 years but with most females dying at the end of the first spawning year. One female spawns up to 1,200 eggs (usually 200-300) in a single layer under a large stone; spawns several egg portions during the season. On the other hand, the males clean, fan and defend the eggs until hatching. Several females may spawn with one male, which may guard the eggs at different stages of development (Ref. 59043). Eggs are demersal and adhesive; eggs hatch in ...
Your dogs tail is a versatile tool that that dogs uses for a variety of its needs. A dogs tail can be used for its social and physical needs. A dogs tail can act as a specialized tool, depending on the dogs need. Your dog can use its tail to communicate, balance, for swimming, warmth, and to keep insects away.. As a communication tool, a dog will signal its social status and emotions with its tail. It can make these signals through the position in which the tail is held and through the direction and speed of its wag. By noting the action of a dogs tail, humans and dogs can make a decision on whether the dog is approachable. The action of wagging also releases pheromones from the dogs anal glands which gives further information on a dogs social status and sex.. As a part of the dogs spinal column, the dogs tail is used for balance. This balancing ability of the tail is especially useful when the dog is walking on a narrow passage or running and wishes to make a quick turn in another ...

Avoiding issues is vital to what could become continual for numerous pets and even result in hearing reduction. Obesity and becoming obese place pointless strain on joints that are presently compromised and lead to your dog pain. Hardly ever give your puppy two doses at as soon as. The only solution is to deliver your canines to their veterinarians and have a frequent test up as a great deal as attainable, so that they can be offered prescriptions on puppy pain medicines.. The medicine is offered in 5 dropper bottle sizes. Therapeutic procedures include things like total hip substitute and femoral head ostectomy. Enough care should really be taken so that proper dose is specified. A much more significant cause of scooting is inflamed and impacted anal glands.. Most bodily problems are triggered by inflammation or join paint. They are the growth of cysts between their toes.

Ahhh! That worm coming out of peanuts bum is my worse nightmare!! Do the vets in your area recommend deworming that often?? The vets I know dont, only if the dog is showing signs. The only thing they recommend is the heart worm once a month, which I do. Rocket had worms when we got him, and the major sign was his potbelly appearance. I didnt really see worms like that, I think I mightve seen worms a little one day mixed in with his poo.

Just hours after I posted here on the blog Thursday night about James getting better, he took a turn for the worse. His abdomen was really contracting and he was almost moaning in pain when it would happen. He was even panting - and James rarely pants. We knew he was in pain and we werent sure this was connected to his anal gland. It was after dinner, so we had to drive an hour into town for the emergency vet.. Thankfully we did. The vet took James back and did bloodwork. James was bleeding internally and he had 0 platelets to stop the bleeding. They did more X-rays and the vet didnt see any blood pooling so she thought the bleeding was in his intestines. They needed to put James on an IV right away to get him fluids, prednisone and a chemo drug that helps make more platelets. We had no idea how serious this was going to be - and James ended up needing to spend the night. We were completely heartbroken. I couldnt stop crying - I was just in shock.

Currently, most health incentive funding programs in Australia aimed at reducing access problems faced by rural and remote populations are based on either the RRMA or ASGC Remoteness classifications. The results shown in Table 2 highlight a major deficiency from using a purely geographical classification as the basis for resource allocation to address access problems. Existing geographical schemes classify large areas as homogenous and thus warranting equal treatment, whereas the use of a more appropriate and sensitive measure of access, such as the Index of Rural Access, indicates a very different scenario. The limitations associated with ongoing use of the RRMA and ASGC classifications have been recognised by both Liberal (conservative) and Labor governments responsible for funding of access initiatives [10, 74]. However, until now, the complexity of developing a suitable index of access has apparently precluded the development of an acceptable solution.. The most powerful aspect of our new ...
