mycobacterium intracellulare infection causing a retroperitoneal mass in a binturong (arctictis binturong).a 19-yr-old castrated male binturong ( arctictis binturong ) with a history of recurrent pyogranulomatous panniculitis, lymphangitis, and dermatitis was presented for evaluation of hyporexia and tenesmus. a large caudal abdominal mass was palpated on physical examination. on ultrasound, the mass encircled and obstructed the left ureter, resulting in hydroureter and hydronephrosis. the animal was euthanized, and necropsy revealed a large retroperitoneal pyogranuloma with acid-fast organisms ident ...201728749262

medetomidine-ketamine-butorphanol anesthetic combinations in binturongs (arctictis binturong).the efficacy, safety, and reliability of two ketamine-medetomidine-butorphanol anesthetic combinations were evaluated in 34 adult binturongs (arctictis binturong). the animals were randomly assigned to one of the two groups. on the basis of estimated body weights, group high ketamine (hk) received ketamine (8 mg/kg, i.m.), medetomidine (0.02 mg/kg, i.m.), and butorphanol (0.2 mg/kg, i.m.) combined in a single injection, and group low ketamine (lk) received ketamine (2 mg/kg, i.m.), medetomidine ...200315077709
renal adenocarcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, and pancreatic islet cell carcinoma in a binturong (arctictis binturong).a 19-yr-old binturong (arctictis binturong) with acute upper respiratory disease was euthanized. postmortem findings included hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic islet cell carcinoma, and renal adenocarcinoma with metastasis to the spleen, pleura, and pericardium. a link between primary hepatic and renal neoplasms has been noted in older humans.200517315471
sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma in a binturong (arctictis binturong).an adult, female binturong (arctictis binturong) was examined due to lethargy, inappetence, and an abdominal mass. diagnostic investigations, including radiographs, abdominal ultrasound, clinical laboratory findings, and a fine-needle aspirate of the mass, were suggestive of a sarcoma with metastasis. necropsy and histopathologic findings confirmed a widely disseminated sarcomatoid variant of a renal cell carcinoma, likely originating in the left kidney, with metastasis to the right kidney, sple ...200517323574
intervertebral disc extrusion and spinal decompression in a binturong (arctictis binturong).a 10-yr-old binturong (arctictis binturong) developed an acute onset of hind limb paralysis. neurological examination revealed sensorimotor paraplegia. myelography and computed tomography demonstrated a ventrolateral extradural compression of the spinal cord centered over the l3-l4 intervertebral disc space. spinal decompression was performed via hemilaminectomy and excision of degenerate nucleus pulposus, confirmed by histopathologic examination. the binturong regained slight motor function by ...200717469290
binturong (arctictis binturong) and kinkajou (potos flavus) digestive strategy: implications for interpreting frugivory in carnivora and primates.exclusive frugivory is rare. as a food resource, fruit is temporally and spatially patchy, low in protein, and variable in terms of energy yield from different carbohydrate types. here, we evaluate the digestive physiology of two frugivorous carnivora species (potos flavus, arctictis binturong) that converge with primates in a diversity of ecological and anatomical traits related to fruit consumption. we conducted feeding trials to determine mean digestive retention times (mrt) on captive animal ...201425157614

dogs, cats, and kin: a molecular species-level phylogeny of carnivora.phylogenies underpin comparative biology as high-utility tools to test evolutionary and biogeographic hypotheses, inform on conservation strategies, and reveal the age and evolutionary histories of traits and lineages. as tools, most powerful are those phylogenies that contain all, or nearly all, of the taxa of a given group. despite their obvious utility, such phylogenies, other than summary 'supertrees', are currently lacking for most mammalian orders, including the order carnivora. carnivora ...201019900567
ticks (acari: ixodidae) parasitizing wild carnivores in phu khieo wildlife sanctuary, thailand.ixodid ticks were collected and identified from 8 wild carnivore species in phu khieo wildlife sanctuary, northeastern thailand. six tick species belonging to 4 genera were recovered and identified from 132 individuals. these included amblyomma testudinarium (n = 36), haemaphysalis asiatica (n = 58), h. hystricis (n = 31), h. semermis (n = 3), rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides (n = 3), and ixodes granulatus (n = 1). leopard cats (prionailurus bengalensis) (n = 19) were infested with 4 tick species, ...200415270119
myocardial necrosis in a captive binturong (arctictis binturong).an adult male binturong, arctictis binturong, which had been anorexic and lethargic for seven days became acutely dyspnoeic and died under anaesthesia. a postmortem examination revealed left ventricular hypertrophy with a thrombus occluding the left ventricular chamber. histological findings included moderate to severe multifocal, vasculocentric myocardial degeneration and necrosis with fibrosis replacing myocardiocytes. escherichia coli and proteus mirabilis were grown on cultures. the animal's ...200415160846

treatment of renal carcinoma in a binturong (arctictis binturong) with nephrectomy and a tyrosine kinase inhibitor.a 13-yr-old female binturong ( arctictis binturong ) presented with a 1 wk history of decreased appetite. the animal was thin, with hypercalcemia (calcium 12.2 mg/dl). a right renal mass was identified on ultrasound and removed via nephrectomy. histopathology indicated a renal adenocarcinoma. treatment with toceranib phosphate, a tyrosine-kinase inhibitor, was initiated and well tolerated by the animal. four months after initial diagnosis radiographs indicated metastases to the lungs and the ani ...201628080923
reproductive endocrine patterns and volatile urinary compounds of arctictis binturong: discovering why bearcats smell like popcorn.members of the order carnivora rely on urinary scent signaling, particularly for communicating about reproductive parameters. here, we describe reproductive endocrine patterns in relation to urinary olfactory cues in a vulnerable and relatively unknown viverrid--the binturong (arctictis binturong). female binturongs are larger than and dominate males, and both sexes engage in glandular and urinary scent marking. using a large (nā€‰=ā€‰33), captive population, we collected serum samples to measure ci ...201627056047

fecal microbial diversity and putative function in captive western lowland gorillas (gorilla gorilla gorilla), common chimpanzees (pan troglodytes), hamadryas baboons (papio hamadryas) and binturongs (arctictis binturong).microbial populations in the gastrointestinal tract contribute to host health and nutrition. although gut microbial ecology is well studied in livestock and domestic animals, little is known of the endogenous populations inhabiting primates or carnivora. we characterized microbial populations in fecal cultures from gorillas (gorilla gorilla gorilla), common chimpanzees (pan troglodytes), hamadryas baboons (papio hamadryas) and binturongs (arctictis binturong) to compare the microbiomes associate ...201425236539
canine distemper virus infection in binturongs (arctictis binturong).two binturongs (arctictis binturong) kept in outdoor exhibits at everland zoological gardens in korea died within 10 days of the onset of clinical signs that included depression, dyspnoea, diarrhoea and convulsions. on necropsy, the significant gross findings were limited to the lungs and the gastrointestinal tract. proteus vulgaris was isolated from the lung of one animal. histopathologically, diffuse severe bronchointerstitial pneumonia with secondary bacterial infection was noted in the lungs ...199910486167
plesiomonas shigelloides and its serovars in animals in the czech republic--region moravia.in the period of 1994-1997, 4,552 samples of sectional, clinical material and environment were examined for the presence of plesiomonas shigelloides. in 55 cases (1,21%) plesiomonas shigelloides was isolated. within 55 isolated strains, 26 serovars have been successfully identified. among other secured cases was plesiomonas shigelloides isolated in pig (sus scrofa domestica), mouse mus musculus), binturong (arctictis binturong) and raccoon (pocyon lotor). in mandarin duck (aix galericulata) the ...199910084023
