  • Case of the Month Answer
    effusion in cats were part of a more generalized disease with congestive heart failure CHF and feline infectious peritonitis FIP being the most common diseases 2 In a more recent retrospective study of 146 cats with pericardial effusion congestive heart failure was by far the most common cause of pericardial effusion 75 whereas there was only one case with suspected FIP 1 The authors hypothesized the under representation of FIP and potentially neoplastic or other systemic disease cases may have been due to the lack of necropsies in which a specific search for pericardial disease or effusions was performed Of the cats with CHF in this study hypertrophic cardiomyopathy HCM was the most common underlying disease 1 HCM is a disease of the ventricular primarily left ventricular myocardium characterized by mild to severe thickening of the papillary muscles and wall and is the most commonly diagnosed cardiac disease in cats 4 Along with pulmonary edema pleural effusion is also common in cats with heart failure and can be a high protein transudate or a chylous effusion 4 In fact the most common cause of chylothorax in cats is heart failure Of the pleural effusion samples submitted for cytology in the previously mentioned retrospective study chylous effusion modified high protein transudate and transudate were the most common cytologic diagnoses 1 Two cats had pericardial effusion samples evaluated one of which was chylous and the other was exudative with mesothelial hyperplasia and dysplasia 1 Neoplasia of the heart and pericardium is rare in dogs and even more rare in cats 5 Primary cardiac tumors are rare in the cat but the following have been reported mesothelioma primary cardiac hemangiosarcoma aortic body tumors myxoma and rhabdomyosarcoma 5 Metastatic tumors to the heart are more common and include lymphoma mammary gland carcinoma pulmonary carcinoma salivary gland adenocarcinoma oral melanoma rhabdomyosarcoma sweat gland adenocarcinoma squamous cell carcinoma and mast cell tumor 5 Overall the most common primary or metastatic cardiac tumor in cats is lymphoma and in general lymphoma is one of the most common neoplasms in the cat 5 6 In the above retrospective study of 146 cats 21 9 of cats had neoplasia which was attributed as the sole case of pericardial effusion in 5 5 of cats and a possible contributing factor in 7 5 of cats 1 Only 4 8 of cats had a defined mass visualized on echocardiography 1 which is lower than what has been reported in dogs In a study of 143 dogs with pericardial effusion a mass was identified on echocardiography in 30 8 of dogs 7 Without staging done in this case it is impossible to know if the heart was the primary site or if this was a case of metastatic lymphoma with an undiagnosed primary site There has been one case report of presumptive primary cardiac lymphoma in a cat causing pericardial effusion 8 Unlike the case presented here the cat in this report had a mass identified on echocardiogram which was 10 x

    likely cause inaccurate culture results Methods of Collection Samples may be collected post milking for best results Be sure cows teats are clean and dry Contamination will often result if teats are wet whether due to excessive water or alcohol Cotton pledgets moistened with alcohol should be used to clean the teat end Scrub thoroughly until the cotton remains clean cleaning the far teats first and the near teats last To reduce contamination of the cleaned teats sample in the reverse order The first streams of milk should be discarded before collecting the sample The collection vial should be sterile with a tightly fitting cap If unavailable use a sterile tube that seals tightly samples which leak will generally become contaminated The vial should be held at a 45 angle One or two ml of milk per quarter is sufficient for culture For composite samples an equal amount of milk from each quarter is desired to assure accuracy in milk culture interpretation 1 Label tubes with cow number and or quarter 2 Clean Teats Brush loose dirt bedding and hair from udder and teats with hand or individual dry paper towel Grossly dirty teats and udders should be washed and dried thoroughly before sample collection 3 Alcohol Scrub Scrub teat ends vigorously with cotton moistened with alcohol Do not saturate cotton with alcohol or use same cotton pledget on more than one teat Swab furthest teats first and sample those teats last Teat ends should be visibly clean before taking sample 4 Forestrip Remove a stream of milk from each teat before taking a sample This helps rid the streak canal and teat cistern of high bacteria and high cell count milk Observe for clinical mastitis 5 Collection Be careful not to touch clean teat end Hold bottle at 45
