AB  - Background: Referral of cases is becoming more and more frequent in companion animal
practice. The Infectious Diseases Isolation Unit (IDIU) admits first opinion, second
opinion and referred patients with a confirmed infectious disease (ID) or a clinically
suspected ID that is awaiting laboratory diagnosis. The primary aims of this study were
to describe the annual number and characteristics of patients referred to the IDIU and
identify the most frequent IDs in referred dogs and cats. A secondary aim was to investigate
possible differences in the length of the hospitalisation and the clinical outcome
among referred cases and those admitted to the IDIU after first and second opinion
appointments.
Methods: A retrospective study was carried out on patients hospitalised at the unit over
5 years from 9th October 2013 to 31st December 2018.
Results: The study population consisted of 365 dogs and 515 cats to give a total of 880
patients hospitalised at the IDIU from October 2013 to December 2018. Among the 96
referred dogs, parvovirosis (37.7%) and leptospirosis (31.1%)were the most frequent IDs.
Feline upper respiratory tract infection (38.2%) and feline leukaemia virus infections
(36.4%) were the main causes in the 80 referred cats.Worrying noncompliance rates of
dog (51.0%) and cat (52.5%) vaccination schedules were identified. The analysis of the
length of hospitalisation in the three groups of patients was not statistically different.
In both animal species there were statistically significant higher clinical discharge rates
on the first opinion patients’ group in comparison to referred patients and the second
opinion group.
Conclusions: Parvovirosis and leptospirosis in dogs and upper respiratory disease and
feline leukaemia virus infection in cats were the most common diagnoses for patients
admitted to the IDIU, reinforcing the need for accurate vaccination. Discharge rates
results pinpoint the need for timely accurate reference.
