3105. Chakral points?

Jul 20  2017

Seeing is believing.
"My legs are giving way!" the slim lady in her 50s said. She had complained of headache.

3104. Can the large urethral stones be removed via the bladder?

"Stones are large and inside the os penile urethra," I said to the senior vet. "Can they be flushed back into the bladder and removed via the bladder?"

A few hundred surgeries had been performed by the senior vet.
"Yes," he said confidently. "It can be done."

Urinary cathether + 20 ml syringe =
general anaesthesia
The syringe of water pushed the 2 stones into the bladder. They were removed.

Stones were about 5 mm x 5 mm and rough.
To be sent for analysis.

Shih Tzu is Ok and will go home on Day 3. 

3103 A Maltese has closed pyometra for one year

Dog in distress, panting.  Vaginal discharge over one year.
Stabilised with furesemide and IV drip for 1 day before spay.







One uterine horn
is bursting with pus. Unusual case.
The other one had partial pus swelling.











The dog had heart disease which gave rise to coughing without phlegm. Heart medication was given 24 hours before surgery. Furesemide IV was given. The dog was spayed the next day and survived. She went home on Day 3 and is OK.

Advice:
Do not delay spaying your female dog if she has slight vaginal discharge over the past year. This would be closed pyometra, with the cervix closed. So pus cannot discharge out normally and after one year, as in this case, the dog's right terine horn was about to rupture from overdistension with pus.. 

3102. An 18-month-old male hamster has swollen abdomen - Abdominocentesis

Within 7 days, abdominal distension. Active and was eating till yesterday. Consulted 2 vets. I advised abdominocentesis under gas anaesthesia, which is risky.

Body Weight  64 g
Body weight after aspirating >4 ml pinkish fluid from abdomen  54 g.
Lots of serosanguinous fluid flowed out. Palpated a solid mass or cyst 8mm x 8m
Hamster is much loved. Prognosis poor. May live for few more days unless the mass is not cancerous.

Professional/online printing

Some professional services specify lower resolutions for image sizes, so you could get away with smaller image sizes.

Kodak, for example, suggests these resolution/file sizes:
For a 4" x 6" print, the image resolution should be 640 x 480 pixels minimum.
For a 5" x 7" print, the image resolution should be 1024 x 768 pixels minimum.
For an 8" x 10" print, the image resolution should be 1536 x 1024 pixels minimum.
For a 16" x 20" print, the image resolution should be 1600 x 1200 pixels minimum.
For a 20" x 30" print, the image resolution should be 1600 x 1200 pixels minimum.
For a Wallet-size print, the image resolution should be 320 x 240 pixels minimum.
