Author Abstract

Background: In the UK, diseases caused by gastrointestinal nematodes (GINs) are the most expensive endemic diseases, being a major cause of morbidity, mortality and lost production in sheep flocks. Control is complicated by the increasing prevalence of anthelmintic resistance in the GIN population and changes in epidemiology, partially driven by climate change. Therefore, there is great emphasis among sheep farmers and veterinarians to find methods to successfully control GINs and prevent associated diseases.

Aim of the article: This article outlines the different strategies that can be implemented on farm to try and sustainably control parasitic gastrointestinal nematodes of sheep.

Archives Highlights:
Fibroblastic osteosarcoma in a guinea pig (Cavia porcellus)
The patient presented a hard mass in the right hind limb extending from the proximal portion of the femur, projecting caudally to the proximal tuberosity of the calcaneus, with an increase in temperature, and a marked increase in sensitivity. Disarticulation was performed.
Head Trauma Management in Small Animals
This article reviews the pathophysiology of head trauma, patient assessment, diagnostic testing, treatment recommendations, monitoring, and prognosis.
Role of autopsy imaging in veterinary forensic medicine: experiences in 39 cases.
Among the 39 cases, 28, 6, 3, 1, and 1 involved cats, dogs, rabbits, a ferret, and a pigeon, respectively. The major autopsy imaging (Ai) findings included skull and rib fractures, subcutaneous emphysema, pneumothorax, pneumoperitoneum, diaphragmatic hernia, and abdominal rupture. The leading causes of death, determined comprehensively via Ai and pathological reports and drug test results, included traumatic impact, blood loss, poisoning, suffocation, tension pneumothorax, starvation, and drowning, all of which have been strongly suspected to indicate animal abuse by humans.
Human Injuries Associated with the Transport of Horses by Road.
There were 112/1067 (10.5%) handlers injured while preparing (13/112), loading (39/112), traveling (6/112), or unloading (33/112). Of these, 40% had multiple injury types, and 33% had several body regions affected. Hand injuries were most common (46%), followed by the foot (25%), arm (17%), and head or face (15%). Median recovery time was 7 days.
Neoplasms in Domestic Ruminants and Swine: A Systematic Literature Review.
In all species, the most frequent neoplasms were squamous cell carcinomas in ruminants, while melanoma was the most frequent in swine.
