Is CT an alternative to MRI in a morphometric analysis system for prediction of Chiari-like malformation associated pain and syringomyelia?

Summary Morphometric analysis to predict risk of CM-P and SM can be applied to CT but refinement will be necessary. This may eventually be useful as a pre-breeding screening test especially if anatomical analysis software is developed. CT is not sensitive for SM and for the foreseeable future any hypothetical CT pre-breeding test for skeletally […]

Olivopontocerebellar degeneration associated with 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric aciduria in a domestic shorthair cat

Conclusion This is the first report of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric aciduria in the veterinary literature. The two cats from the same litter presented at 3–6 months of age with progressive spinocerebellar signs and weakness. The female cat developed cerebellar signs in the late stage of the disease and urinalysis revealed significant elevations in 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric acid. The cat was […]
