The use of the water treadmill for the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries in the sport horse

administration of both systemic anti-inflammatory drugs and intra-articular drugs in the long-term management of chronic osteoarthritis. Monitoring the progression of a rehabilitation programme It is highly recommended to monitor the progression of each patient undergoing rehabilitation as accurately as possible. Habitual techniques used by clinicians and researchers in field and hospital settings include ultrasonography and other methods to study symmetry (accelerometry, inertial sensors, force, and pressure platforms). Other field techniques are goniometry to measure

Clinical chemistry investigations in recumbent and healthy German Holstein cows after the fifth day in milk

animals and between various causes of recumbency, and to examine the occurrence of hypocalcaemia outside the risk period of hypocalcaemic paresis. Material and Methods Farm and management . This study was conducted on a dairy farm (in the state of Saxony, Germany; latitude: 51°4′N; longitude: 12°50′E; altitude: 249 m) with an average stock of 1,800 German Holstein cows and a mean 305-d milk yield per cow of 10,300 kg. Cows were housed in free-stall barns with cubicles and received a need-based total mixed ration according to recommendations for energy and nutrient

Evaluation of the possibility of C. burnetii transmission by the alimentary route in a guinea pig model

–45 min to allow clotting and then centrifuged at 1,000 × g for 10 min to obtain serum. Then, serum specimens were tested for the presence of antibodies to .C. burnetii using a complement fixation test (CFT). Detection of phase-specific IgM and IgG was performed utilising reagents supplied by Virion/Serion (Germany), and their instructions were followed in measuring antibody levels. The inactivation temperature of the sera was 56 ± 1°C, the initial dilution of the sample was 1:5, and the final dilution was 1:80. Serum was considered positive when at least partial

Impact of prepartum body condition score loss on metabolic status during the transition period and subsequent fertility in Brown Swiss dairy cows

animal’s energy reserves ( 16 ) as an indirect measurement of fat metabolism and its correlation with energy metabolism ( 12 ). The incidence of metabolic disorders and their relationship with BCS has been studied since BCS relates to the fertility status of dairy cows ( 4 , 16 , 38 ). It is known that serum metabolites, calcium concentrations and BCS alter during early lactation. The relationship of blood metabolites and ions to the degree of BCS loss during the dry period may provide important information for herd management and reproduction ( 21 ). Prepartum BCS

ARTs in wild felid conservation programmes in Poland and in the world

disciplines of science, starting from the biology of the species, through research into the population and habitat, assisted reproductive technologies, establishment of gene banks, developing bioinformatic systems, and ending with biodiversity and endangered species management. In the last few years knowledge of felid reproduction has expanded considerably thanks to comparative studies utilising the domestic cat as a research model for endangered wild cats. Basic reproductive techniques used both in domestic cat breeding and in rescuing wild felid populations that are
