Title: Smaller needles make it easier to take bone marrow samples from small-breed dogs
Author: Abrams-Ogg, A.C.G.; Defarges, A.; Foster, R.A.; Bienzle, D.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: It is easier to take bone marrow tissue samples from small-breed dogs using smaller needles. With 15-gauge needles, sample quality is generally good when taken from the humerus (upper arm bone) of small dogs. However, the smaller 15-gauge needles may produce fewer stem cells for analysis of formation of blood cell components.
