@TheVegasVet veterinary college classmate Catherine Czaya dressed up in Giraffe gear, running a “Run for the Wild” race, supporting the Bronx Zoo! The Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine (December 2016) published a report stating that a multimodal approach to pain management is being used at multiple establishments on Giraffes and Hippopotami. This approach is fantastic, as it utilizes different types or classes of analgesics in combination, allowing for dosages and/or frequencies of other more addicting or side effect-prone drugs to be lessened and analgesia to be improved. 🏃🏻‍♀️🐨🐯🦁🐵🐻🏃🏻

As you probably expect, the Giraffe cardiovascular system constantly battles a high pressure vascular environment. In fact, their blood pressure is double that of people. A study published by the Journal of Heart Valve Disease (January 2017) found that, in general, the valves of the Giraffe contain more collagen and elastin, resulting in valves that are stronger, stiffer, and more resistant to the natural high-pressure forces. 😲❤️

Do not use macrocyclic lactone medications in specific breeds! Such medications include the avermectins and milbemycins. The avermectins include ivermectin, abamectin, doramectin, eprinomectin, and selamectin. The milbemycins include milbemycin oxime and moxidectin. These drugs are most often used as heartworm preventatives or heartworm infection treatments. Sensitive breeds include, and are not limited to, Australian Shepherd (shown above), Border Collie, German Shepherd, Longhaired Whippet, McNab, Old English Sheepdog, Rough Collie, Shetland Sheepdog, Silken Windhound, Smooth Collie, Waller, and White Swiss Shepherd. 🐶❤️🐕🐾photo courtesy of @kdl17

Chinese Shar Pei fever is largely diagnosed based on signalment, history, and physical examinations findings. For thoroughness, and assuming there is no evidence of organ involvement, appropriate diagnostics may include plain orthogonal radiographs and arthrocentesis (joint fluid collection for fluid analysis, cytology, and possibly culture) of the affected joints. Most clinicians would probably treat an affected Shar Pei without confirming the diagnosis, as Shar Pei fever is difficult to confirm with absolute certainty even based on the mentioned diagnostics. 🐾🐾❤️ photo courtesy of @ba_tari

Today we celebrate those pets appearing in films! “Benji” was a male and then a female mixed breed dog that has starred in several movies since 1974, had a television series (1983), and a video game (1983). “Benji” has grossed over $45 million dollars worldwide. Veterinary fact: “Benji” most resembles a Cairn Terrier, a breed that has been reported to be predisposed to cardiac disease (valvular disease), dermatologic disease (atopy), endocrinopathies (diabetes mellitus), hepatic disease (hepatitis, microvascular dysplasia, polycystic hepatic disease, portosystemic shunts), neoplasia (testicular cancer), neurologic disease (cellular degeneration), ocular disease (ocular melanosis, glaucoma), orthopedic disease (avascular necrosis of the femoral head and neck), renal disease (polycystic kidney disease), and urinary disease (urolithiasis), amongst others. 🐕📽🐶🎞🎥

Today we celebrate those pets appearing in films! “Lassie” is a female Rough Collie first appearing in the literature in 1859, making it to film in 1943, and then to television in 1954. Since 1943 the total worldwide gross of the “Lassie” films has exceeded $30 million dollars. Veterinary fact: at least 12 purebred canine breeds are affected by a mutation that increases their sensitivity to certain medications, especially those used for heartworm prevention (macrocyclic lactones drugs). In one study the Rough Collie breed made up almost 50% of the breeds affected by the mutation (Research in Veterinary Science, June 2016) and has been reported as high as 60%! 🐶🐾📽🎥🎞🐕

For this Fathers Day we will define the role of the male lion. Similar to our domesticated cats, the male lion contains testosterone-dependent backward-pointing spines on their penis, which induces the female lion (lioness) to ovulate. After copulation the male lion has little to do with the upbringing of the cubs, other than the occasional disciplinary action of playful cubs in the pride. A male lion who has recently taken over a pride will kill the previous cubs, as this may induce the females to be reproductively receptive. Although the lioness will hunt most of the prey, the males will sometimes play a role. 🦁🦁🦁

Happy Father’s Day! @TheVegasvet was born in Yonkers, New York, the son of Jiries (Jihad) and Singwala Ireifej. He was primarily raised in New Windsor, New York and completed his undergraduate education at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton. Dr. Ireifej’s father continues to not only be incredibly supportive of anything his son pursues, but he also a driving force and a monumental inspiration in everything Shadi does in his life. I love you dad! 💚💙💚💙

“Jack” is an approximately one year old super curious and very, very friendly male rabbit that is in need of a loving home! Please visit him at The Animal Foundation (on 655 N Mojave road) today! Veterinary News: Some chemotherapy drugs risk cardiotoxicity. A rabbit study published by Scientific Reports (June 2017) found that cardiac MRI can be a reliable and noninvasive method of diagnosing early chemotherapy-induced cardiac damage. This would allow doctors to alter the treatment plan for cancer patients who are showing these types of awful side effects early on! 🐰🐇🐰🐇🐰

Veterinary medicine research is quite unique! There is quite a lot of freedom with regard to the type of studies that can be performed, allowing clinicians and researchers to really think outside the box. A study published by the BMC Veterinary Research Journal (June 2017) showed that applying topical insulin (diluted with glycerol) onto red-eared slider turtle wounds resulted in improved healing on a gross and histopathologic level over a 28-day period of time, when compared to those without insulin application. 🐢🐢🐢
