The Mental Health Impact of Online Veterinary Reviews
Businesses that have 15% to 20% negative reviews actually earn more revenue than those with 5% to 10% negative reviews. Negative reviews, up to a certain extent, show a sense of authenticity with the optimal negative reviews being between 10% to 25%. Clients expect to see negative reviews and having only 5-star reviews can make clients wonder if the reviews are fake or paid.
Clinical Utility of Cytology from Preoperative Percutaneous Fine Needle Aspirates of Solitary Liver Masses in 220 Dogs: A Retrospective Study (2009-2019).
The agreement rate for correct cytologic diagnosis was 22.9% (49/220). Of the neoplastic masses 18.9% (35/185) were correctly diagnosed via cytology. The overall sensitivity was 60%, and the specificity was 68.6%. Neither institution, lesion size, cavitation, or needle gauge had an association with correct diagnosis. This study demonstrates that, although there is a low risk of complications following FNA of a hepatic mass, overall success rate for correct cytologic diagnosis based on FNA was low compared to histopathologic diagnosis.
A survey of male and female dairy calf care practices and opportunities for change.
The survey had a 7.4% response rate (n = 289/3,924) and was primarily filled out by farm owners (76%). Although colostrum and milk feeding practices were similar between male and female calves, male calves received less milk while still on the dairy farm of origin, compared with females. Male calves were also more likely to be fed a higher proportion of raw, unsalable milk. Female producers and those that kept their male calves beyond 10 days of age had lower odds of using poorer feeding practices for male calves.
Guide to advances in the control of gastrointestinal roundworms in sheep
Sustainable control of GINs requires the application of multistranded strategies, which includes breeding resistant/resilient sheep, avoidance of high-challenge pasture, improving immunity through use of vaccines and improved nutrition, and use of anthelmintics in such a way as to delay the development of anthelmintic resistance.
