This book provides complete, current information on pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of endocrine, metabolic, and reproductive diseases in dogs and cats. It also discusses the importance of testing procedures in endocrine and reproductive diseases, as well as cost-effective and expedient diagnostic protocols. A complete review of reproduction is presented with the endocrine material, making this text the most inclusive resource overall on the topic. Expansive sections on Canine Male and Female Reproduction. The book is divided into nine sections for an organized and accessible approach to information. Discussions of testing procedures in endocrine and reproductive diseases. Explains cost-effective and expedient diagnostic protocols. Logical, step-by-step guidelines aid in accurate decision-making and diagnosis. A new chapter in the Adrenal Gland section (Section 3) addresses feline hyperadrenocorticism. The chapter on diabetes mellitus in the canine and feline has been divided into two chapters in order to explore the specific aspects of the disease in each species. All material has been extensively revised and brought up to date for this edition. Additional tables and algorithms throughout the book summarize and clarify information.
Lessons from Animal Diabetes is a broad compendium of international research in experimental diabetes to which the authors have contributed reviews with original information and discussion. It is a valuable resource for medical researchers (both MD and PhD) and for diabetologists whose activities lie at the crossroads of endocrinology, immunology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, pathology and metabolism. It is also a rich and useful reference source for graduate students in these fields. Veterinary scientists and pharmaceutical investigators testing therapeutic modalities in animals with predetermined diabetes or diabetes induced by cytotoxic or nutritional factors will also be interested in reading this volume. This is the sixth volume of a series which comprises invited reviews on subjects of contemporary interest both in IDDM and NIDDM. The contributors to the IDDM section have dealt with the expression of glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) and its role as antigen, the involvement of macrophages, cytokines and retroviruses in the pathogenesis of diabetes, molecular genetics of IDDM as well as new perceptions of the unified mechanisms leading to the final B-cell death as a result of cytotoxic and immune agents. There is also a section dealing with Transgenic Constructs, the new animal models rising in importance in the research of diabetes and its related phenomena. The articles devoted to this topic range from effects of B-cell function to immunomodulatory alterations and diabetic complications. The contributors to the section on the NIDDM syndrome, comprising 10 articles, deal both with new and recognized models including the spontaneously diabetic OLETF rat, Chinese hamsters, Goto-Kakizaki rats, db/db mice, rhesus monkeys, dogs, Zucker fa/fa and corpulent cp/cp rat interstrains. This book will be a valuable asset for diabetologists, endocrinologists, physiologists, veterinary scientists, pharmaceu

A1 Care Test Kit will help detect diabetes in dogs and cats by determining the average blood glucose levels in the animal. These tests observe the presence of glucose in the hemoglobin. See an average blood glucose level over the last 110 days in dogs and the last 70 days in cats. This can be used as an aid to management your pet's lifestyle in the long-term to keep them at their best health. Tests the presence of glucose in the hemoglobin Provides average blood glucose result over prior 110 days in dogs Provides average blood glucose result over prior 70 days in cats No refrigeration required Simple and easy to use
