Shashi K Agarwal
Schizophrenia is a severe, persistent and debilitating psychiatric disorder. Patients with schizophrenia have lower rates of employment and marriage. They also have unhealthy lifestyles. These include poor diet, lack of exercise, excessive smoking and increased alcohol intake. Patients with schizophrenia suffer from significant co-morbidities and have a two to three fold higher mortality rate compared to the general population.

Tufani NA, Singh JL, Mahesh Kumar, Ahmad AH, Das AK
Out of 9149 dogs screened for renal diseases, 100 (1.09%) canine patients were showing syndrome of renal failure. Various renal disorders were observed but, gastrointestinal abnormalities were the commonest clinical outcome of renal disease in dogs, which included chronic vomiting (84% cases), halitosis (68% cases), oral lesions/ulceration (54% cases) and loss of appetite (89% cases). Clinical signs observed related to urine abnormalities were polyuria/polydipsia (52.38% in CRF and 20.69% in ARF), oliguria/anuria (79.31% in ARF, 47.62% in CRF and 100% in obstructive urolithiasis) and haematuria (55.17% in ARF, 28.57% in CRF).
