Interesting Facts from the Ten New Chapters

1. African Hedgehogs: African Hedgehogs can live up to 8 years.

2. Biology of the Immune System: Immune cells signal each other by means of small proteins called cytokines. Several hundred different types have been identified.

3. Cloning of Domestic Animals: The most common tissue used for cloning from adult animals is subcutaneous connective tissue.

4. Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine: Because of the lack of manufacturing standards, quality control, and known effects in animals, herbal medicines probably present a greater risk of adverse effects and interactions than other types of complementary and alternative therapies.

5. Disorders of Potassium Metabolism: Potassium homeostasis in ruminants is determined by the balance between absorption in the GI tract and excretion in saliva.

6. Equine Metabolic Syndrome: Hyperinsulinemia with normal blood glucose concentrations (insulin resistance) is the primary clinical finding in equine metabolic syndrome.

7. Poisonous Mushrooms: The period between ingestion and appearance of clinical signs often indicates the prognosis in cases of mushroom poisoning. If the latency is less than 3 hours, the signs are typically self-limiting and not life-threatening.

8. Porcine Circovirus Diseases: Porcine multisystemic wasting syndrome has been reported worldwide and has also been identified in wild boar.

9. Pseudopregnancy in Goats: The fertility of does treated for pseudopregnancy appears to be normal, so culling affected goats is generally not indicated.

10. Seminal Vesiculitis in Bulls: Vesiculitis in bulls is most often caused by bacteria and is most commonly identified in yearling bulls.
