We reflect on our experiences providing veterinary services in 5 remote communities of the Sahtu Settlement Area in the Northwest Territories in February 2017. The evolving role of dogs and the social determinants of health that influence dog health in the communities are explored, including biology, physical environment, behavior, dog and human social factors, and access to veterinary care. The importance of continued exposure of veterinary professionals to different cultural perspectives in order to provide services that are culturally appropriate and effective is highlighted...

Two dogs from Quebec were diagnosed with granulocytic anaplasmosis. They both displayed fever, lethargy, and anorexia. Other clinical signs included vomiting, uveitis, polyarthritis, hepatomegaly, and splenomegaly. Thrombocytopenia, anemia, and lymphopenia were identified in both cases. Cytoplasmic inclusions were observed within neutrophils, and Anaplasma phagocytophilum infection was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction in both dogs.

A 5-year-old neutered male Labrador retriever dog with a 3-year history of intermittent hemorrhage from the right metacarpal pad was evaluated. A small region of hyperattenuation of the metacarpal pad was evident on computed tomographic angiography. Excisional biopsy of the location of the purported hemorrhage revealed a micro-arteriovenous malformation on histologic examination.

#5
Rachel W Adams, Shannon P Holmes, Samuel P Franklin
A dog with lameness, stifle effusion, and osteophytes, but in which the stifle retained stability for 10 months after the onset of lameness, was evaluated with 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Imaging revealed a tear in the caudal meniscotibial ligament of the medial meniscus. Arthroscopy findings correlated well with MRI and a partial meniscectomy was subsequently carried out, without any surgery to stabilize the stifle, and lameness resolved.

#6
Persephone R Greco-Otto, Renaud Léguillette
Bioelectrical impedance spectroscopy (BIS) instantly assesses body composition to monitor the effects of diet, competition, and illness, though it requires a body proportion factor (Kb). This study aimed to validate a draft horse-specific Kb. The calculated Kb was 1.42, resulting in significantly lower body composition values, with the exception of fat mass.

REVIEW
Olutunbi Idowu, Kathryn Heading
Hypogylcemia in dogs is defined as a blood glucose concentration of less than 3.3 mmol/L (60 mg/dL) and is a relatively common problem encountered in veterinary practice. This metabolic disorder can have an array of clinical signs, ranging from subtle abnormalities to a life-threatening emergency. Hypoglycemia can be due to several physiological processes or etiologies. It is imperative that the clinician is astute in diagnosing hypoglycemia, proficient in providing rapid symptomatic treatment (if indicated) and has a clear diagnostic plan to elucidate the underlying cause...

Joseph W Lozier, Andrew J Niehaus, Andrew Muir, Jeffrey Lakritz
Transfixation pin casts (TPC) may be useful in management of fractures in ruminants. A retrospective study was conducted to report the uses, complications, and outcomes of TPC in ruminant fracture stabilization. Twenty-five cattle, 7 goats, and 7 sheep with long bone fractures managed with TPC met the inclusion criteria. Long-term outcome was assessed from telephone interviews with owners. Thirty-one animals (79%) survived to removal of external coaptation and return to the farm. Common complications included pin-hole osteitis and disuse osteopenia...

This study evaluated the feasibility of using an embryo transfer protocol in an alpaca farm in Canada. Alpaca donors and recipients were synchronized with 2 doses of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH), 12 days apart. In donors ( n = 5), superstimulation was induced with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) given daily (40 mg) for 5 days beginning 2 days after the second GnRH treatment. Cloprostenol was given on the last day of FSH, the donors were bred 2 days later, embryos were collected 7 days after breeding...

The objective of this study was to investigate the association between sow- and litter-level factors with mortality in a swine nursery barn experiencing a severe Streptococcus suis disease outbreak. All-cause mortality data from a 300-sow farrow-to-finish herd was analyzed using a Cox's regression model. The data were recorded over 6 months and included 24 cohorts, 297 sows, 295 litters, and 2779 piglets with an average of 14.4% post-weaning mortality. If the sows had 2 litters within the study period and pigs from their first litter experienced mortality, then pigs from their subsequent litter had a decreased risk of mortality [hazard ratio (HR) = 0...

Stefanie V Kadykalo, Maureen E C Anderson, Janet E Alsop
Clinical isolates are important to antimicrobial resistance surveillance efforts because clinically ill animals are the direct targets of antimicrobial treatments. Thus, clinical data may provide a surveillance tool for identifying emerging resistance threats. The purpose of this study was to describe resistance trends in Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp. from clinically ill animals over time and evaluate the utility of these laboratory data as a passive surveillance tool. Susceptibility results of isolates from chickens, swine, and cattle recovered between 2007 and 2015 at a major veterinary diagnostic laboratory in Ontario, Canada were analyzed...

Sindy L Piscoya, Kelly R Hume, Cheryl E Balkman
The incidence of proteinuria in humans receiving tyrosine kinase inhibitors has been well-documented. Reports of proteinuria with this class of drugs are limited in veterinary medicine. This retrospective study describes the incidence, severity, and progression of proteinuria in 55 dogs treated with toceranib phosphate, with or without concurrent glucocorticoid or NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Six dogs were proteinuric at baseline. Twelve of the 49 dogs that were not proteinuric at baseline developed proteinuria while receiving toceranib phosphate...

Scarlett M Sumner, Janet A Grimes, Mandy L Wallace, Chad W Schmiedt
Medical records of 17 client-owned dogs diagnosed with os clitoris on physical examination or diagnostic imaging were reviewed to describe the clinical signs and surgical management of this condition. All dogs were phenotypically female. The most common presenting complaints included an enlarged clitoris ( n = 10), urinary tract infection ( n = 5), and licking of the vulva ( n = 3). Other frequently reported clinical signs included vaginal discharge and/or lower urinary tract signs such as pollakiuria. Ten dogs were surgically managed with os clitorectomy...
