Burkhardt, W; Baumstark, M; Matos, J; Reusch, C; Kook, P (2012). Milbemycinoxim-Intoxikation bei einem Miniature Australian Shepherd. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 154(8):345-348.

Abstract

A 3-year-old female intact Miniature Australian Shepherd presented with convulsive status epilepticus after milbemycinoxime administration in the recommended dosage. In addition to continuous intravenous antiepileptic therapy the dog had to be ventilated for 36 hours due to aspiration pneumonia. After extubation control of intermittent tonic-clonic seizures required a constant-rate-infusion of propofol for another 96 hours, before it could be discontinued on day 5. The patient had fully recovered by day 10. The dog was known to be homozygous for the MDR1-gene mutation. So far milbemycinoxime was regarded a save drug in MDR1-deficient dogs. However, the present case suggests using the lowest possible dosage in MDR1-deficient dogs and pet owners should be advised of potential complications.

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.
