Diabetes mellitus in cats and dogs is a complicated illnes and its monitorisation is a chalLenge for the clinician. Thus, fructosamine indicates high level of blood glucose. The increased value of serum fructosamine is found in patients diagnosed with diabetes mellitus and it reflects the degree of glycaemic control, being useful for an objective and proper monitorisation. This parameter is much more accurate than the value of serum glucose level, especially when dealing with cats, due to the fact that in this type of patients the level of blood glucose can be affected by induced acute stress. This study includes 36 diabetic patients,19 dogs and 17 cats, from the Department of Internal Medicine of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Bucharest, in the past year, for which frutosamine has been determined. This has been conducted in order to asses quick changes in therapy and to improve glycaemic control.

European Union states encourage preparing national guides to good hygiene practice and application of HACCP principles. It is encouraged the dissemination and use of national and Community guidelines. However, food business operators may use these guides on voluntary basis. Guides to good health practice must include adequate information on the risks involved in primary production and related activities and measures to combat such risks, including the relevant set of national and Community law or national and community programs. Using of the guides to good practice may help food establishments to control hazards and demonstrate compliance. The best practice guidelines are usually a combination of good hygiene practices (GHP) and HACCP- based elements and include: practice guidelines for the implementation of mandatory requirements; requirements for a raw materials; hazard analysis; pre-establishment of critical control points in the preparation and processing of food; preventive hygiene measures for handling sensitive and perishable products and prepared food for groups of consumers with increased susceptibility to illness, the need for documentation and records, protocols for data validation of shelf life of the product. Guides of good sanitary practice represent a simple, but effective mean to overcome difficulties that may arise in certain food establishments to implement HACCP procedures. National and community guides must provide guidance on good practice to combat health risks in primary production and related activities. General guide may suggest common hazards and controls of certain food activities and help the manager or the HACCP team in making food safety procedures or methods and appropriate record keeping.

During the last decades a technique based on membrane permeability to fluorescent dyes has been developed in order to determine these parameters. The aim of this study was to determine the fresh boar sperm viability by flow cytometry using a triple stain protocol. Fresh boar semen samples were analyzed with FACSCanto II (BD Biosciences) system on the basis of Hoechst 33348, peanut agglutinin-fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC-PNA) and propidium iodide (PI) staining. Flow cytometric provide an accurate and precise technique which allowed detection of four categories of sperm: live sperm with intact acrosomal and plasma membranes, live sperm with acrosome lesions and intact plasma membrane, dying sperm with damaged plasma membrane and intact acrosome, as well dead cells with damaged plasma membrane and acrosome lesions.

This study used radiographic techniques to evaluate the Insall Salvati index (ratio of the length of the patellar ligament to the length of the patella - L:P) to compare the verticality patellar position at small-medium and large breed dogs that were grouped in healthy dogs, dogs with patellar luxation and with cranial cruciate ligament ruptures. Except for the based on L:P ratio measurement at small-medium breed dogs and in large-breed there was no difference among the groups. In large large-breed dogs the LPL is associated with patella baja. No statistically significant differences of L:P ratio between dogs affected or unaffected with cranial cruciate ligament rupture are reported Further studies using other imaging techniques are required in small and large-breed dogs with patella luxation (LPL and MPL).
