Effects of Prednisone or Prednisone with Ultralow-Dose Aspirin on the Gastroduodenal Mucosa of Healthy Dogs
MetadataShow full item record
Lesion scores for each group, at each location, and total scores, at each time period were evaluated for the effects of time and treatment using a Kruskal-Wallis test. Total dog days of vomiting and dog days of diarrhea in each group were compared using a Wilcoxon rank sums test. Significance was determined at p<0.05.
There were no significant differences in median total gastric lesion scores between any of the groups at any time during the study. There was no location effect on regional gastroduodenal lesion scores and there was no significant change in gastroduodenal lesion scores over time in any of the groups during treatment. Significantly more dog-days of diarrhea occurred within the prednisone and aspirin group during the experimental period (Period 2) in comparison to Period 1. However, no significant differences were found between any of the groups for dog-days of vomiting, diarrhea or inappetence at any time in the study.
