History

An approximately 7-year-old 5.6-kg sexually intact male carpet python (Morelia spilota) was evaluated for a more than 7-month history of decreased mobility and abnormal behavior, including dull mentation, reduced righting reflex, and anorexia. The snake had not ingested any whole rats or mice for the previous 2 months; therefore, oral tube-feeding with a liquid diet for carnivores had been performed monthly.

Clinical and Gross Findings

On physical examination, the snake was quiet and dull with an altered head carriage, decreased righting reflex, poor body condition (body condition score of 2 on a scale of 1 to 9),

History

A 15-year-old 377.0-kg (829.4-lb) American Quarter Horse mare (Equus caballus) was evaluated because of progressive weight loss and muscle wasting of approximately 1 year's duration despite the owner changing the horse's diet to include a high-fat concentrate mix. The wasting had become more dramatic several months prior to presentation, with partial anorexia and limb edema developing during the preceding several weeks.

Clinical and Gross Findings

On physical examination, the mare was quiet, alert, and responsive; rectal temperature, heart rate, and respiratory rate were considered normal. The mare was thin (body condition score, 1 2/9). A CBC

History

A 3-year-old 65-kg Nubian doe had a 2-week history of lethargy and weakness that progressed to recumbency. The doe did not improve with treatment of penicillin (20,000 to 40,000 U/kg/d, IM) and meloxicam (0.5 mg/kg, SC, q 36 h) at the onset of the clinical signs. Two weeks before the clinical presentation, the doe had dystocia associated with stillbirth of twins and received fenbendazole (10 mg/kg, PO) just prior to the delivery.

Clinical and Gross Findings

On physical examination, the doe had white oral and ocular mucous membranes and continuous cough and wheezes on thoracic auscultation. The abdomen was

A 22-year-old Warmblood gelding was referred to the North Carolina State University Large Animal Emergency Service for evaluation of anemia. The horse was treated for signs of colic and fever (38.9 °C)suspected to be secondary to a large colon impaction the day before the referral. Treatment consisted of administration of an unknown dose of flunixin meglumine and enteral fluids administered via nasogastric intubation.

Clinical and Gross Findings

On physical examination, the horse was quiet and alert, with mild tachycardia (52 beats/min), tachypnea (28 beats/min), and pale pink mucous membranes. Complete blood count showed marked macrocytic, normochromic, regenerative anemia with
