Edema of the Head and Neck as a Result of Primary Mediastinal Fibrosarcoma
( 1945) Norton, R. ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

A male Shepherd-mixed 8- year-old dog entered the hospital Nov. 13, 1944, for treatment. The dog had refused to eat and exercise for the past 4 or 5 days. An intermittant edematous swelling of the head and neck was present. The temperature of the dog when admitted was 102.2° F. and varied from 100.2° F. to 1040 F. during hospitalization. The appetite was retarded throughout the period of observation. All physical findings were negative except for the intermittant swelling of the head and upper cervical region which became more pronounced and further pTogressed to the lower cervical and pectoral regions. The animal preferred a prone position and walked but little when forced to exercise. The animal's condition was one of general decline until he expired on Dec. 3, 1944, following 21 days of hospitalization.

Atrophy of the Supraspinatous and Infraspinafous Muscles in a Young Colt
( 1945) Lewis, R. ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Atrophy of the supraspinatous and infraspinatous muscles is quite common in the equine, especially of the draft breeds. This condition is commonly referred to as sweeney. In most cases the atrophy is due to pressure on the suprascapular nerve at the point where it crosses the neck of the scapula. A common cause of this pressure is an improperly fitted collar. Another common cause is working a green colt on a heavy load until he becomes tired and in resting himself he pulls sideways.
