Abstract

Objective: Gastric ulcers in green iguanas have not been described yet. In this first report this disease is presented. Material and methods: Clinical symptoms and diagnostic options of gastric ulcers in three green iguanas are described. Possible causes are discussed. Results: The unspecific clinical signs comprise apathy, anaemia, anorexia and to some extent, vomiting. Stress, e.g. due to hospitalisation and the application of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may lead to gastric ulcers in green iguanas. Conclusions: Minimizing of stress (short hospitalisation, minimal handling, ideal housing conditions) and prophylactic use of antacids and histamine type 2 receptor antagonists are recommended. Generally, gastric ulcers in herbivorous reptiles should be taken into consideration as a secondary disease.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
