Remifentanil is an ultra-short-acting μ-opioid receptor agonist. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of the minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) of sevoflurane and other MAC derivatives, including the MAC for blocking adrenergic responses (MAC-BAR) and the MAC at which tracheal extubation is occurred (MAC-extubation), with or without remifentanil infusion. Six healthy adult beagle dogs were randomly anesthetized three times for determining the MAC-BAR (SEVMAC-BAR), MAC (SEVMAC), and MAC- extubation (SEVMAC-extubation) of sevoflurane under infusion of saline and remifentanil at rates of 0.15, 0.30, 0.60, 1.20 and 2.40 μg/kg/min. The ratio of the SEVMAC-BAR and SEVMAC and that of the SEVMAC-extubation and SEVMAC were not significantly different at baseline and during treatment. The MAC-BAR95 and MAC95 decreased in a dose-dependent manner until reaching 1.20 μg/kg/min, and the MAC-extubation5 decreased in a dose-dependent manner until reaching 0.60 μg/kg/min. The percentage reduction of SEVMAC-BAR, SEVMAC, and SEVMAC-extubation increased in a dose-dependent manner during remifentanil infusion. The heart rate significantly decreased in the MAC-BAR and MAC groups, and the systolic and mean arterial pressures increased after remifentanil infusion compared with the baseline values. Remifentanil infusion caused reduction of the SEVMAC-BAR, SEVMAC and SEVMAC-extubation in a dose-dependent manner, and ceiling effects were observed in the dogs. Higher doses of remifentanil and sevoflurane were necessary for blocking the sympathetic response to the supramaximal stimulus to prevent movement and extubation in dogs.

A 10-month-old female Japanese black heifer presenting with sudden loss of appetite was diagnosed with extreme extension of the gallbladder. Laparotomy reaching from the right part of the 10th rib to the right flank showed an extended gallbladder greater than 50 cm in diameter. Cholecystectomy was performed as follows: 1) complete removal of the gallbladder distally from the base; 2) flushing via a catheter inserted into the common bile duct; and 3) covering of the hole opened in the common bile duct with a double-suturing method using the mucous membrane and muscular layers of the remaining gallbladder structures. Serum levels of total bilirubin gradually decreased from 7.5 mg/dl preoperatively to 4.7 mg/dl, 1.6 mg/dl and 0.6 mg/dl at 3, 8 and 34 days postoperatively, respectively. The heifer showed 1 month of clinical improvements, grew normally and finally became pregnant. To the best of our knowledge, this represents the first clinical report to describe cholecystectomy in cattle.

A13-year-old spayed female dog had a mass in the left auricle. Grossly, connection between the mass and original auricular cartilage was not recognized. The mass was unencapsulated and contained multiple islands of mature hyaline cartilage and neoplastic adipocytes. The neoplastic cells comprised predominant mature adipocytes, scattered lipoblasts and irregular round to spindle cells with moderate atypia. The atypical cells occasionally had lipid droplets. A diagnosis of well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDL) with chondroid metaplasia was made. This is the first report for liposarcoma with chondroid metaplasia in the auricle of domestic animals.

The aim of this study was to investigate the correlations of severity of osteoarthritis (OA) and serum biomarkers including keratan sulfate (KS), hyaluronic acid (HA), and chondroitin sulfate (CS) 846 epitope. We also investigated the effect of glucosamine and fish collagen peptide (FCP) on OA. OA was induced in 12 rabbits (12 weeks of age) by anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT). After the surgery, the rabbits were orally administered FCP (F group), glucosamine (G group), or FCP and glucosamine (FG group) for 4 weeks. The control group was provided water ad libitum (C group). Blood was collected before surgery (pre-ACLT) and before euthanasia (post-ACLT) for serum marker measurement. Biomarker levels were measured by using commercial kits. We evaluated OA severity both macroscopically and histologically. Macroscopic evaluation showed mildly eroded condylar surfaces in the C group. Histological findings were significantly different from the FG and other groups. There were no significant differences between each group at post-ACLT in serum KS, HA and CS 846. Histological assessment and serum biomarker measurements performed at post- ACLT showed a significant correlation between HA concentration and OA severity. Variations in the CS 846 concentration at pre- and post-ACLT were significantly correlated with OA severity. Administration of glucosamine and FCP had chondroprotective effects in the ACLT model. Serum biomarker concentrations were significantly correlated with cartilage injury. Serum biomarker measurement would be useful for monitoring articular cartilage damage in the clinical setting.
