Being a major challenge, because of ingenious parasite’s survival strategies and treatment’s transience, anticoccidal therapy it is a major priority. In this respect, therapeutic conduct must be adjusted as well is possible on the most efficient drug groups find on the market. Paper brings concise information for the practitioner’s up to date, about the therapeutic groups highly efficient in fight against coccidian offensive, amongst these recalling groups of: benzene-acetonitrils, benzyl-purines, carbanilides, guanidines, dinitro-benzamides, polyetheric ionofors, thiamine antagonists, pyridines, quinolones, quinazolines, anticoccidia sulphonamids and symmetrical triazinones.

Diabetes mellitus in dogs and cats: diagnosis and therapy

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease of humans and animals, which causes increased levels of blood sugar (glucose). Normally,glucose is brought into the cells by a hormone – insulin.The cells then metabolize glucose to make energy used for all functions of the body. Animals suffering from DM either lack insulin, or the cells cannot use the insulin that is there. As a result, blood glucose levels increase, and the cells have to use other substances for energy. When blood glucose levels become too high, glucose is found in the urine, causing increased frequency of urination and increased drinking. When blood glucose remains elevated over a period of time, other metabolic changes can occur, such as weight loss, acidosis, seizures, coma, blindness, cataracts, and nerve damage. Animals that are eating normally and not showing signs of illness may only require a blood or urine test to diagnose DM. Concurrent diseases (such as infection, Cushing’s disease, hyperthyroidism, pancreatitis, gastroenteritis, inflammatory bowel disease, hepatic lipidosis, or kidney disease) make diabetes more difficult to diagnose and manage. A complete blood screen and other specific tests may be recommended to obtain the diagnosis and baseline values for treatment and future monitoring. The treatment for diabetes in dogs is similar to the treatment for diabetes in humans, through diet and insulin therapy. Dogs and cats with DM
are usually treated with insulin. Insulin is a protein and, as such, not suitable for oral administration. Thus, it is administered once or several times daily by the subcutaneous route. Adjustment of the blood glucose concentration demands long hospital care, and subsequently the owner constantly has to keep a strict schedule
at home. In veterinary practice the main groups of oral antidiabetic (used in human medicine either) are: carbohydrate absorption inhibitors (e.g. acarbose); insulin sensitisers (biguanides such as metformin, thiazolidinedions, peroxisome proliferator-activated gamma receptor agonists).
