This study aimed to estimate the owned dog and cat populations of Sao Paulo city using a complex sample with random selection in two stages. In each administrative district, six census sectors and 20 households in each sampled sector were visited from September 2006 to September 2009, totalizing 11,272 interviews. The human: dog ratio was 4.34 and the human: cat ratio was 19.33. The dog population was 2,507,401 and the cat population, 562,965. The dog population was composted of 52.7% males, while among the cat population it was 45.1%. The proportion of sterilized females (23.4% among dogs and 46.1% among cats) was higher than males (11.4% among dogs and 31.5% among cats). The mean age of dogs was 4.99 years, and for cats, 3.53 years. The proportion of restricted (without access to the street) dogs, 64.4%, was higher than restricted cats, 42.5%. The average number of animals/household was 1.60 for dogs and 1.69 for cats. The animal ownership is associated with cultural factors, therefore the characterization of canine and feline population is essential to implement an adequate animal population management program and zoonosis control.

Frozen-thawed epididymal spermatozoa have already been successfully used in artificial insemination in the domestic cat, proving to be a valuable resource for the reproduction of felid species, which are threatened with extinction. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of freezing and thawing on domestic cat semen collected by electroejaculation (EL) and from the epididymides (EP) and vasa deferentia. Ten adult cats were anesthetized, electroejaculated and immediately thereafter, orchiectomized. Epididymal spermatozoa were collected through the compression of caudae epididymidis and vasa deferentia. Spermatozoa were frozen-thawed following a single protocol. Sperm motility, sperm progressive status (0-5), plasma membrane integrity and morphology (light and transmission electron microscope) were assessed on two occasions, immediately after collection and after freezing and thawing. There were no significant differences between the electroejaculated and epididymal fresh or frozen-thawed spermatozoa for any of the variables. However, the incidence of acrosome defects after freezing and thawing increased by 19% based on light microscopy, whereas ultrastructural images revealed acrosome damages in most sperm cells. Since these acrosomal changes are known to affect sperm fertilising capacity...

Relata-se o caso de um gato de aproximadamente um ano e meio de idade, macho, não castrado, que foi encaminhado por apresentar incapacidade de abrir a boca e aumento de volume flutuante na região intermandibular. As lesões estavam presentes há um ano, desde quando o gato foi encontrado e adotado. A causa não foi determinada. Baseado nos exames físicos e radiográficos diagnosticou-se anquilose da articulação temporomandibular esquerda e mucocele salivar. O aspecto lateral do processo condilar da mandíbula esquerda foi removido, e a mucocele foi tratada por ressecção das glândulas salivares mandibular e sublingual direita e por drenagem da mucocele. Após a cirurgia, o gato mostrou bom uso funcional da mandíbula, sem sinais de desconforto.; An approximately 1.5-year-old, not neutered mixed breed cat was referred for evaluation of inability to open its mouth, and soft tissue swelling around the intermandibular region. Both signs were present since the cat was adopted, 1 year before presentation. The cause of the signs was not determined prior to referral. Based on the physical and radiographic examinations, left temporomandibular joint ankylosis and salivary mucocele were diagnosed. The lateral aspect of the condyloid process of the left mandible was removed and the salivary mucocele was treated by right mandibular and sublingual gland resection and drainage of the mucocele. After surgery...

A lectin from cat liver has been identified and purified by affinity chromatography on asialofetuin-Sepharose. One hundred micrograms of lectin was obtained from one cat liver with a purification factor of 1561. The lectin agglutinates trypsin-treated rabbit and cow erythrocytes. Hemagglutination was inhibited only by saccharides containing ß-galactosyl residues, of which the 1-amine-1-deoxy-ß-D-galactose was the most potent one by inhibiting hemagglutination at a concentration of 12.5 mM, followed by melibiose, trehalose and galactose. The lectin has a subunit molecular mass of 14.4 kDa determined by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and a pI of 4.85. Compared with the composition of lectins from calf heart and porcine heart, cat liver lectin contains approximately the same amount of cysteine, half the amount of glycine, twice as much arginine and threonine, and three times the amounts of tyrosine and methionine. Cat liver lectin contains four cysteine residues per subunit, all of them in the reduced form. Their lack of reactivity towards thiol-reactive supports suggests they are not exposed on the lectin surface. The protein apparently has a blocked N-terminus. The purified lectin was stable for up to 20 months stored at +4ºC in buffer supplemented with 4 mM ß-mercaptoethanol. Results indicated that this lectin belongs to the family of soluble ß-galactoside-binding lectins...

In this chapter, we show complementary results to the works of Cossíos et al., (2009, 2012), on the genetic structure and phylogenetics of two small Andean cats, the Pampas cat (Leopardus pajeros) and the Andean mountain cat (Leopardus jacobita). In the present study we increased the samples sizes to 235 individuals for L. pajeros and 115 individuals for L. jacobita, effectively making these samples the largest to date for these two species. We analyzed five microsatellites for L. pajeros and seven microsatellites for L. jacobita as well as the hypervariable domain 1 (HVS-1) of the mtDNA control region for both species. The main results obtained were as follows: 1- The levels of gene diversity for L. pajeros with microsatellites were considerable higher than in L. jacobita (average H = 0.73 vs. 0.42, respectively), with the first similar to other Neotropical felids but the second one lower than other Neotropical felids and many other Neotropical mammals analyzed from this point of view. The same was recorded for mtDNA sequences, with the Pampas cat ( = 0.0513) presenting more than 10 times higher nucleotide diversity than the Andean mountain cat ( = 0.0047). The sample which could represent the putative morphological subspecies...

We analyzed for 12 nuclear DNA microsatellites in 4 wild cat species (European wild cat, ocelot, puma, and jaguar) representing four different phylogenetics felid lineages. The objective of our study, using these species and molecular markers, was to obtain more data about the molecular evolution of microsatellites. The main findings of this study are: 1- From the measurements of diverse genetics variables and statistics in the four species, we determined that the ocelot showed the highest number of alleles, number of repeats, allele range and levels of heterozygosity. However, no significant differences were observed among the average microsatellite mutation rates observed in the four species of felids studied. 2- We estimated two independent average mutation rates (3.116 x 10-5 and 5.353 x 10-5) using two different phylogenetics strategies. However, there was no significant difference between these two estimates. 3- We found the observed mutation model to be basically a uni-step mutation model or a two-phase mutation model. The four felid species showed an average stepwise mutation model for 92-94 % of the uni-step mutations. 4- The regression models we applied among different genetic diversity statistics, samples sizes and other variables showed: a- the allele range was clearly more correlated with the allele number at the microsatellites studied than to the allele dispersion...

Background:  To describe the clinical features and management of cat-scratch-inflicted corneal lacerations. Design:  Retrospective, observational case series. Participants:  Three patients (aged 3, 7 and 35 years) with cat-scratch-inflicted full-thickness corneal lacerations. Methods:  Retrospective medical chart review and review of the published literature. Main Outcome Measures:  Details of clinical presentation, surgical management, antibiotic treatment and clinical outcomes on longitudinal follow-up. Results:  Cat-scratch-inflicted corneal lacerations are rare. Only five other cases were found in the literature. Wide spectrum of clinical presentation and severity of injuries exists. Two of the cases here required emergency surgical repair of the laceration; however, one case had spontaneously healed and was only diagnosed 5 years after the initial injury. One case required secondary cataract extraction and subsequent excision of a vascularized posterior lens capsule. There were no cases of secondary microbial keratitis or endophthalmitis. All cases had a favourable ocular outcome after at least 6 months of follow-up. Conclusions:  Cat-scratch-inflicted corneal injuries are rare but do occur in Australia, in particular among younger children. If the principles of prompt surgical repair and antibiotic prophylaxis are adhered to...

BACKGROUND: Paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) is a rare and severe autoimmune blistering skin disease of humans. It is associated mainly with haematopoietic neoplasia and a unique autoantibody profile. At this time and in animals, PNP has only been reported in dogs. OBJECTIVES: To report clinical, histological and immunological findings in a cat with suspected thymoma-associated PNP. ANIMAL: An 8-year-old female spayed Himalayan cat. RESULTS: The cat presented with a thoracic mass diagnosed as a lymphocytic thymoma. Two weeks postremoval, the cat developed myasthenia gravis, which was controlled with prednisolone and pyridostigmine. The myasthenia gravis resolved, but the cat developed severe cutaneous erosions and ulcers primarily affecting the caudal ventral abdomen and perineum, but also the ventral chest, axillae and medial pinnae. Histopathological analysis revealed changes consistent with pemphigus vulgaris and erythema multiforme, a combination of lesions highly suggestive of PNP. Direct immunofluorescence revealed intercellular epidermal IgG deposition in the lower epidermis, especially in areas of suprabasal clefts. Indirect immunofluorescence revealed antikeratinocyte IgG to basal keratinocytes and bladder epithelial cells. Immunological results supported a diagnosis of PNP. Skin lesions were treated with prednisolone and chlorambucil and...

The present paper reports the ultrastructure of dendritic sprouting and formation of associated synapses in the ciliary ganglion of cat and monkey induced by pre- and post-ganglionic axotomy. In both series of experiments, sprouting dendrites were observed mostly at 3-5 days postoperatively; such profiles were identified by their dense packing of mitochondria and glycogen-like granules. In longitudinal section, such profiles appeared as expanded extensions from the normal-looking dendritic trunks. None were observed to arise directly from the neuronal soma. After preganglionic nerve section, the cross-sectional diameters of such profiles measured 2.211 .O pm (range: 0.9-6.2 pm) in cat and 2.4I0.7 y m (range: 0.9-5.5 pm) in monkey. After postganglionic nerve section, the crosssectional diameters of such profiles measured 2.110.7 pm (range: 0.8-4.5 pm) in cat and 2.811.4 pm (range: 1.1-7 .O p m) in monkey. After preganglionic axotomy, in both cat and monkey, the axon terminals began to degenerate at 3 days postoperatively and disappeared by 5 days postoperatively. However, at later postoperative survival periods, the axon terminals reappeared and were observed to make synaptic contacts with the sprouting dendrites. Some of the sprouting dendrites were observed to degenerate...

Seventeen commercial and research laboratories participated in two comparison tests under the auspices of the International Society for Animal Genetics to develop an internationally tested, microsatellite-based parentage and identification panel for the domestic cat (Felis catus). Genetic marker selection was based on the polymorphism information content and allele ranges from seven random-bred populations (n ¼ 261) from the USA, Europe and Brazil and eight breeds (n ¼ 200) from the USA. Nineteen microsatellite markers were included in the comparison test and genotyped across the samples. Based on robustness and efficiency, nine autosomal microsatellite markers were ultimately selected as a single multiplex core panel for cat identification and parentage testing. Most markers contained dinucleotide repeats. In addition to the autosomal markers, the panel included two genderspecific markers, amelogenin and zinc-finger XY, which produced genotypes for both the X and Y chromosomes. This international cat parentage and identification panel has a power of exclusion comparable to panels used in other species, ranging from 90.08% to 99.79% across breeds and 99.47% to 99.87% in random-bred cat populations.

Este projeto apresenta os resultados de um estudo de caso realizado num Centro de Acolhimento Temporário (CAT) da região norte do país. A finalidade foi identificar as necessidades das famílias das crianças (0-6 anos) institucionalizadas nesse mesmo CAT. Para a realização deste estudo foi necessário aplicar um questionário, que incluiu uma parte relativa ao Inventário de Necessidades da Família (revisão, 1990 b) desenvolvido por Don Baileye Rute Simeonsson (1988) e adaptado pelo Centro de Estudo e Apoio à Criança e Família (CEACF/CRSS) Lisboa e Vale do Tejo, às 10 famílias que visitavam regularmente as crianças na instituição. Para além disso, e com o intuito de obter distintas perspetivas de análise, foi realizada uma entrevista às 2 técnicas do CAT. Tentou-se abordar os mesmos assuntos tanto nos questionários às famílias como nas entrevistas efetuadas às técnicas do CAT, de forma a poder comparar informações a posteriori. Também, foi realizada uma análise documental dos processos individuais das crianças institucionalizadas cujas famílias participaram no estudo. Através da análise das informações recolhidas foi possível verificar que as famílias em estudo apresentavam como principais necessidades...
