Esophageal Tumor in a Dog
( 1958) Kenagy, C. ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Esophageal tumors are considered a rarity in present day diagnostic interpretations, however, a report from Alabama indicates that such tumors are by no means so rare as have been the indications. In a series of esophageal neoplasms found in dogs over a period of 3 years the esophageal worm, Spirocerca lupi, was found in each tumor. This may possibly indicate the etiological importance of the parasite.

Successful Equine Cesarean Section
( 1958) Maxted, James ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Cesarean section in the mare may be indicated in pelvic fractures with exostosis, transverse dorsal or transverse rotated bicornual pregnancies and rupture of the prepubic tendon. In these conditions the dam may be sacrificed to save the life of the fetus, as successful cesarean sections are rare in the mare.

Plating a Compound Fracture of the Right Metatarsus in the Equine
( 1958) Bessire, Paul ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

On February 7, a 1-year-old Shetland pony was admitted to the Stange Memorial Clinic with a history of being found in the pasture with a fractured leg.

Recent Trends in Ruminant Nutrition
( 1958) McCall, Ralph ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

It is fitting that veterinarians should be concerned about the latest findings and ideas in animal nutrition. By the same token, it is important that the animal nutritionist know something of the latest ideas on disease and disease control. This is a day of specialization. It is practically impossible for one man to be an authority on both animal disease and animal nutrition. This does not mean, however, that an authority in one of these fields should not learn what he can of the other. The veterinarian and the feed man have essentially the same goal-to make the farmer more money by use of their services, their products or both.
