Cutaneous MCTs: Associations With spay/neuter Status, Breed, Body Size, and Phylogenetic Cluster

Certain breeds are known to be overrepresented among mast cell tumor (MCT) patients, but other risk factors have not been evaluated. This study presents results from a case-control study of 252 dogs with grade 2 or grade 3 cutaneous MCT. Increased risk for MCT development was found in spayed females (adjusted odds ratio [OR], 4.11), boxers (adjusted OR, 6.09), Labrador retrievers (adjusted OR, 3.95), pugs (adjusted OR, 3.17), golden retrievers (adjusted OR, 2.12), the mastiff and terrier phylogenetic cluster (adjusted OR, 3.19), and breeds classified as large (adjusted OR, 2.10) or giant (adjusted OR, 5.44). Additional studies are needed to evaluate the role of these and other potential risk factors in MCT development.

Feline Nonregenerative Anemia: Diagnosis and Treatment

Anemia in cats is not a diagnosis but rather a sign of an underlying disease. The diagnostic work-up for an anemic patient is often extensive, starting with classification of the anemia as regenerative or nonregenerative. Once nonregenerative anemia is diagnosed, a number of tests may be required to determine its cause, including a close examination of the patient's blood and bone marrow. Although there are standard supportive measures for anemic cats, specific therapies can be implemented for certain etiologies of nonregenerative anemia.
