The frequency of diabetes mellitus is described for cats that received veterinary care from two large feline-only clinics in Brisbane, Australia. Frequency was estimated using period prevalences (the proportion of the population at risk that was affected by diabetes at any point during a specified time period). Of the 12,576 study cats, 93 were affected with diabetes during the 5-year study period, resulting in a 5-year period prevalence of 7.4 per 1000 cats. Period prevalence was significantly ...

A new species of the apicomplexan genus LeucocytozoonBerestneff, 1904, L. artamidis n. sp., is described from the Australian avian family Artamidae. Gametocytes and endogenous stages of the life-cycle are described together with early erythrocytic and leucocytic developing forms rarely described for species of this genus.

Burmese cats in Australia, New Zealand and the UK have an increased risk of developing diabetes, but the underlying pathological cause is unknown. Some predisposing factors in Burmese cats have been identified, such as chronic or recurring medical problems, dental disease, repeated corticosteroid treatment, confinement indoors and lower physical activity. Islet amyloidosis and pancreatitis have been ruled out as primary causes of diabetes in Burmese cats. The aim of this study was to compare glu...

There is evidence for the role of genetic and environmental factors in feline and canine diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in cats. Evidence for genetic factors in feline diabetes includes the overrepresentation of Burmese cats with diabetes. Environmental risk factors in domestic or Burmese cats include advancing age, obesity, male gender, neutering, drug treatment, physical inactivity, and indoor confinement. High-carbohydrate diets increase blood glucose and insuli...

A total of 3059 individual birds, presented as clinical cases to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Gold Coast, Queensland, was examined for the presence of blood parasites at the International Reference Centre for Avian Haematozoa, Queensland Museum. Birds examined represent members of 40 families, 102 genera and 133 species, of these, 350 (11.4%) individuals were found to harbour one or more species of haematozoa. At least four new species of parasites have been identified. The highest occurren...

A study was undertaken on the pathology and associated schizont morphology of apicomplexan species of avian haematozoa. Some 32 birds from the families Artamidae, Meliphagidae, Oriolidae, Podargidae, Columbidae, Alcedinidae and Psittacidae were identified as having schizonts in various tissues. Based on blood stages observed, the probable relationship to tissue stages was considered. The majority of schizonts were referable to the genera Leucocytozoon and Haemoproteus . The comparative morpholog...
