Adequate levels of dietary vitamin C are necessary for capybaras (Hydrochoerus hydrocharis) because they cannot synthesize the vitamin endogenously. Beginning in 2013, hair and weight loss, as well as general dermatitis, were observed in all individual capybaras (n = 4) in a mixed exhibit at Seoul Zoo. Seven additional vegetables, leafy greens, and fruits that increased dietary vitamin C concentration from ∼300-400 to >600 mg/kg dry matter were added to the diet since January 2015. Within 6 months, capybaras' skin and coats improved considerably, with hair becoming thicker and glossier...

BACKGROUND: The progression of cervical kyphosis due to injury to the facet joints and musculature is a major concern for posterior foraminotomy especially for patients with cervical lordosis of less than 10°. However, cervical hypo-lordosis (cervical lordosis < 10°) may be improved with the alleviation of pain and muscle spasms, which corresponds with the disappearance of a positive Spurling's test. When surgery is necessary, the spontaneous recovery of cervical curvature may be minimally offset using minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as posterior percutaneous endoscopic cervical foraminotomy (P-PECF)...
