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 ...
The most common anal sac tumor is apocrine gland adenocarcinoma of the anal sac. This is a tumor that generally involves only one anal sac and can be quite invasive. It can also metastasize to regional lymph nodes within the abdominal cavity. One of the most dangerous features of this particular tumor is the fact that it can secrete a substance that is very structurally similar to a hormone called parathormone. This hormone causes the blood calcium to increase to dangerous levels that can ultimately be lethal.. Excision of these tumors is performed by incising the skin directly over the mass. Using a combination of sharp and blunt dissection as well as electrosurgery, the surrounding tissues are separated from the mass and the associated anal sac. The larger and more invasive the tumor is, the greater the likelihood of potential complications. Once excised, the surgical approach is then closed with multiple layers of suture material.. Potential complications associated with this procedure ...
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).

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; ...

Few topics raise dog owners eyebrows (and lower dogs tails) faster than the subject of anal sacs! Even though anal sacs are often also called anal glands, they technically are not truly glandular in structure. These two small repositories of foul smelling material technically are small pouches lined with cells whose job it is to continually produce an oily semi-liquid substance that is stored within the sac. But why?
It is important to keep an open mind. Differential diagnosis for perianal disease includes anal sac impaction, abscess (which may rupture), sacculitis, perianal adenomas, perineal hernias, perineal fistulas and other malignancies, such as perianal malignant melanoma. Any of these conditions affect the quality of life of the patient.

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.. ...

I wish I had a picture uploaded…mi pobrecito is wearing his second cone of shame of the day. Que terrible! He could reach around the first e-collar but by the time I realized, the vets office was closed so I had to go somewhere else and pay for a second one. Urgh. He wont walk anywhere and still has only peed once today, early this morning. It is now almost 11pm!. Long story short, he had an abcessed anal sac (sometimes referred to as an anal gland) which burst, and he was bloody and licking it like crazy. I called first thing this morning and we got in for 3pm; I was so incredibly nervous. It took a lot of effort and recalling of happy memories to not cry on the way there. Treatment in the vets office involved a shot of painkiller and some weird jelly stuff rubbed on his bum. Also, a muzzle, and lots of vomit on the floor. Vomit is apparently normal after getting the painkiller. He began panting (also related to the painkiller), and had hugely dilated pupils and stress wrinkles around his ...
Commonly called anal glands, the anal sacs are two small pouches located on either side of the anus at approximately the four oclock and eight oclock positions. Numerous specialized sebaceous (sweat) glands that produce a foul smelling secretion line the walls of the sacs. Each sac is connected to the outside by a small duct that opens just inside the anus.

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 ...
With severe postoperative hypocalcemia, as seen in this dog, its generally best to just go straight to a constant rate infusion of 10% calcium gluconate after initial stabilization (1,2). To that end, 10% calcium gluconate should initially be given 0.5-1.5 ml/kg, IV, slowly over 20-30 minutes until clinical signs have subsided. An ECG should be used to monitor cardiac effects and the infusion stopped if there is ST segment elevation, QT shortening, or if arrhythmias develop. Thereafter, a continuous rate infusion should be used at 10-15 mg/kg/h (10-15 ml/kg over 24 hours) until oral therapy allows better control ...
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. Thats why our pets are so adept at hiding illness until the symptoms become advanced.. The couple took a collective deep breath.

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.

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. In wild canines and felines the secretions from the sacs normally express onto the stool during defecation and are used for scent marking. In pets there ...

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. In wild canines and felines the secretions from the sacs normally express onto the stool during defecation and are used for scent marking. In pets there ...
Annie is an 8 year old German Shepherd from Frederick, MD with Anal Sac problems and needed it removed. Annie had her surgery on 6/10/16. She was having her pre-surgery tests and the the vet found she had a bit of infection. Dr. Gauthier stated all was well for surgery, but felt like it was necessary to go ahead and do the surgery right away since there was a possibility of a very big tumor behind the anal gland. Update: The surgery went very well and Annie is up and moving around with the much hated cone, which she is not crazy about; doing great and feeling much better as you can see in her eyes. Thank you for making this possible for us, Annie and I are both greatly relieved and very happy.. ...
Commonly called anal glands, the anal sacs are two small pouches located on either side of the anus at approximately the four oclock and eight oclock positions. Numerous specialized sebaceous (sweat) glands that produce a foul smelling secretion line the walls of the sacs. Each sac is connected to the outside by a small duct that opens just inside the anus. ...
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. What a great realization it is when your dog acts in a way that is nearly human, and that connection is 1 of the terrific joys of possessing a pet all over.. Dont beat your self up also ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...

Circling before pooping is normal behavior for dogs. It is normal for discriminating dogs, that is. Not all dogs circle before defecating because it depends on whether the animal is concerned if another dog has marked the same spot before.. A dog has anal glands that, when healthy, will express a trace of a stinky substance when the dog poops. These glands act to expel waste from the dogs body. You can also consider the gland substance to be a calling card to other dogs, similar to urine marking. When the anal glands become irritated or diseased, the dog may circle to check the glands at the time of a defecating episode or circle, lick the area or scoot around. A good diet will keep the glands healthy.. When a dog has to poop, it will look for a suitable place. The dog may also sniff around as a way of checking, whether a dog has marked the same place before. It is sniffing for the noxious smelling scent and substance that is expressed from the anal glands when a dog defecates. Although, the ...

Lets eschew euphemisms. The technically correct term here is anus, and Jollys was chronically irritated. Being so pudgy, he had trouble keeping his bottom clean and would frequently scoot on the floor, like dogs with anal glands problems do.. I attributed his recurrent irritation to a combination of poor personal hygiene, anal gland issues, and self-trauma. I treated accordingly, expressing the glands, shaving the area, prescribing varying regimens of topical cleansers and ointments, and sometimes oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. Jolly did not take kindly to his mothers ministrations, so home care was a challenge, but his condition would generally improve - and then recur.. So what does this have to do with Holden and hives, you ask? Good question. Jolly came in again recently. This time his anus was markedly red and inflamed, more than I would have expected since he had none of the usual feces caked to the fur, his glands were fine, and his mother reported no scooting.. If he wasnt ...
Regardless of the words used to describe it, we are talking about dogs rubbing their back ends along the ground and or persistently licking and biting around their anus and tail base area. Some will itch their sides, or seem uncomfortable when defecating. Owners will often observe the skin around the anus and tail base looking moist and red, and there may also be hair missing. Sometimes there can be fishy odour and occasionally a swelling next to the anus and leakage of foul fishy smelling fluid.. Three common causes of itchy bottoms are fleas, worms and anal glands issues with anal glands being top of the list and the main focus of this discussion. Less common causes are allergies, skin infections and tumours.. The first thing we do after a good general examination is check on the worming and flea treatment history (what products have been used on all the pets in the household and how frequently) and have a good look for evidence of fleas (live fleas and flea dirt).. Worm issues can be a little ...

He then erased a 15-40 hole to secure the first set. "I dont know what I was thinking", Kyrgios said. Federer conceded that he has ridden his luck at times to advance. "I would love it", Federer said. Another surprise from the study was the evidence suggesting that fang blenny fangs evolved before the venom.. In the study, a team of global researchers analyzed those glands and found the toxins are a chemical mix of different opioid peptides that act like morphine or heroine.. If swallowed, this fish is known to make its predators experience a "violent quivering of the head", which forces its predator to open its jaws and gills, allowing that the blenny to escape, unscathed. "We expected that.its a defensive venom, so its going to hurt like every other defensive venom", he adds.. Not all researchers on the team are convinced the the blennys venom works like hard drugs.. The "fang blenny", also known as poison-fang blennies or sabre-tooth blennies, may look harmless at just two inches ...

The other night Bailey had a strong fishy smell coming from her. I thought it was her anal glands and gave her a bath. Now all of a sudden she seems to be having pain in her pee pee area. She was playing fetch when all of a sudden she stopped and turned round to bite at her bum. At first I thought it was her SM untill I realised she was licking her pee pee area. The area looks pretty tender and smells pretty bad. Does this sound like a urine infection? I am worried it might be something more

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 ...

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 ...

It is known to occur in humans, dogs, and other mammals, and often appears as a sudden swelling to one side (sometimes both sides) of the anus. A common cause of perineal hernia is surgery involving the perineum. Perineal hernia can be caused also by excessive straining to defecate (tenesmus). Other causes include prostate or urinary disease, constipation, anal sac disease (in dogs), and diarrhea[citation needed]. Atrophy of the levator ani muscle and disease of the pudendal nerve may also contribute to a perineal hernia. In humans, a major cause of perineal hernia is perineal surgery without adequate reconstruction. In some cases, particularly surgeries to remove the coccyx and distal sacrum, adequate reconstruction is very difficult to achieve. The posterior perineum is a preferred point of access for surgery in the pelvic cavity, ...
It is not possible to distinguish on histological ground between the ductal portion of eccrine and apocrine glands.. Traditionally most tumours have been considered to show eccrine ductal differentiation. Ackerman and colleagues have reclassified many of the traditional eccrine tumours to apocrine categories.. Extensive sampling may reveal foci of decapitation secretion in tumours classically regarded as eccrine.. Some of the glandular tumours reveal at least small foci of sebaceous or follicular differentiation.. Sweat gland and ductal differentiation: Characterized by formation of glandular/duct structures and presence of intracytoplasmic glandular lumina. True ducts and intracytoplasmic lumina can be highlighted by their diastase-resistant periodic acid-Schiff (PAS), epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) and carcinoembryonic antigen positivity. Currently the diagnostic utility of immunohistochemisty is doubtful. ...
GOMEZ MARTINEZ, Erika et al. Immunodiagnostic in Didelphis marsupialis using an antigen of Venezuelan Paragonimus. Acta bioquím. clín. latinoam. [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.4, pp. 681-688. ISSN 0325-2957.. Paragonimus are trematodes that normally live in the lungs of carnivorous and omnivorous mammals such as humans. An outbreak of Paragonimus sp. in which Didelphis marsupialis was the only wild reservoir incriminated was described in eastern Venezuela. In order to have immunological tools to detect the presence of Paragonimus sp. in this reservoir, a whole antigen of the adult worm of this parasite was elaborated. Didelphis marsupialis were captured in the locality of Aguas Blancas, Montes municipality, Sucre state, Venezuela, from which blood samples were obtained and a search for worms was performed in lungs. Worms were homogenized and ultracentrifugated to obtain FSPA to perform immunoassay (ELISA) to detect antibodies in opossums. The electrophoresis analysis showed a pattern of 22 ...
As a general rule, etiopathogenesis of a disease must be well understood in order to achieve a satisfactory response to treatment. Contrary to the general belief that the horseshoe fistula is the cause of posterior deep anal abscess, fistula follows the development of deep postanal space abscess as its complication [5]. The natural history and the developmental steps of anorectal abscess fistula disease are well summarized by Malouf et al. [3]. At first, a cryptoglandular abscess develops in the intersphincteric space which contains the anal glands. Infection may spread via vertical, horizontal or circumferential routes, and this determines the site of the abscess [8]. Circumferential spread may occur in the intersphincteric, ischiorectal or supralevator compartments to form horseshoe fistulas [3]. On the other hand, abscesses perforating the external anal sphincter anteriorly or posteriorly enter the preanal or postanal spaces [3], in which situation the internal opening may be identified on ...

The plant ailment, known as Fusarium dieback, was identified recently by UC Riverside extension plant pathologist Akif Eskalen.
California is already battling the Asian citrus psyllid, which spreads a disease that is threatening the states $2-billion citrus industry. Recently they have got a new problem: the tea shot hole borer is an ambrosia beetle about the size of a sesame seed. It carries the Fusarium fungus in its mouth. When the beetle burrows into an avocado tree, it infects the plant with the fungus. Fusarium then attacks the trees vascular tissue, interrupting the flow of water and nutrients.
Telltale signs of an infestation include dead or dying branches, as well as beetle exit holes on the bark of the trees trunk or main branches. The wood near these exit holes may be discolored, wet-looking or be coated with a white, powdery substance. | Plant Pests - Global Travellers
