Among all canine liver conditions, she notes, the most frequently observed at CUHA
is chronic hepatitis, an inflammatory disorder that is most often diagnosed in middle-aged dogs (about six to eight years of age) but is also seen occasionally in young dogs.
The vast majority of dogs that have been diagnosed with lymphoma at CUHA
will be treated with a six-month course of chemotherapy, using four different drugs in rotation.
The second most frequently diagnosed eye disorders at CUHA
, says Dr.
Lymphoma, which accounts for about 30 percent of feline cancer cases at CUHA, is a malignancy affecting certain types of white cells called lymphocytes.
Cancer of the skin and underlying tissue, which accounts for some 25 percent of cancer cases observed at CUHA, usually emerges in the form of small growths that spread uncontrollably and invade other tissues and organs.
Oral cavity cancer, which yields tumors that affect the superficial lining of the mouth as well as the bony components of the upper and lower jaw, accounts for about 15 percent to 20 percent of feline malignancies seen at CUHA.
For the past decade at CUHA, CT scans have been invaluable in identifying various feline disorders as well as excluding the presence of others, says Peter Scrivani, DVM, an assistant professor of radiology at Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine.
By comparison, the cost of a CT scan at CUHA will typically range between $250 and $700, depending on the complexity of the disorder being evaluated and the number of views that are needed.
Accidents are responsible for most broken bones, she notes, with automobile accidents ranking as the leading cause of canine bone fractures treated at CUHA.
In addition, she notes, osteosarcoma, a cancer that can weaken a bone to the point at which it is vulnerable to fracture, is diagnosed with some frequency at CUHA.
Endoscopic spaying is rarely performed at CUHA
Sin duda, lo razonable seria regular las propias creencias de acuerdo con la ciencia de nuestra epoca, pero el problema es justamente, subraya Wittgenstein, que lo que a los humanos les ha parecido sensato y razonable ha cambiado completamente a lo largo del tiempo, y no parece haber un indicio objetivo y atemporal de racionalidad: incluso ahora mismo "personas muy inteligentes y cuhas creen en la historia bilica de la Creacion, mientras que otras la tienen por evidentemente falsa, y sus razones son conocidas por aquellas" (SC, [seccion] 36).
