Pain management in horses
Pain relief is commonly administered to horses, either as short-term treatment following acute injury or as part of longer term management of chronic disease, such as osteoarthritis. By far the most commonly used products in the management of equine pain are the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Trace Minerals and Vaccination
Trace minerals have long been reported to be important for optimal immune function in livestock1.Trace minerals are essential for livestock to mount an immune response to a vaccine and thus derive protection.
Oxidative Stress : Its Impact on Transition Cows
The trace mineral levels in cattle are not static; they change throughout the production cycle depending on the demands on the animal.
Oxidative Stress : Its Effect on Cattle and the Role of Trace Minerals
Reactive Oxygen Species or Free Radicals are constantly formed during normal aerobic cellular metabolism. Free radicals are unstable and highly reactive oxidants that can remove an electron from another compound leaving it oxidised.
Oxidative Stress : Its Effect on Calves and Weanlings
It has been well documented that the new born calf’s mineral status and antioxidant capacity is highly correlated with the maternal source. Significant mineral transfer in the last trimester leads to liver levels which are typically higher than the dam’s levels at birth.
Canine Castration: Is There More Than One Way To Crack A Nut?

Do Sugars Have Any Role in Dermatology Today?
Sugars, or carbohydrates, are the most abundant class of organic compounds found in living organisms. There are two major subfamilies; the simple sugars (monosaccharides) and the complex sugars (oligosaccharides composed of 2-10 monosaccharides and polysaccharides composed of more than 10 monosaccharides).

Gastro cat: Assessment of a New High Protein - Low Carbohydrate - High Fat Diet in Cats with Chronic Gastrointestinal Disease Vol. 1 No. 1: 4
Dietary therapy is a major component in the management of most gastrointestinal disorders. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a new dry high protein – low carbohydrate – high fat diet intended for the management of chronic maldigestion-malabsorption in cats. Forty-seven client-owned cats with chronic gastrointestinal diseases were recruited. During the first month (M1) of follow-up, they were fed exclusively the test diet (Virbac VETERINARY® HPM Digestive Support Cat). During the second month (M2), they were fed again their usual dry diet. If medical treatment became necessary during the study, the cat was excluded. To describe the clinical status, the 5 following digestive parameters were assessed 6 times, at inclusion, then each week of M1, and finally at the end of M2: frequency of defecation, faeces quantity, faecal score, faeces odour, and frequency of flatulence. Forty-four cats completed the study. The test diet resulted in significant improvement in all parameters. After 1 month fed the test diet, 72% of cats were completely cured (all parameters normal), 26% were partially improved, and only 2% were unchanged. At the end of M2, 61% of cats had minimum 1 parameter degraded again. These results confirm the clinical efficacy of the new highly digestible high protein – low carbohydrate – high fat diet for chronic gastrointestinal disease management and recurrence prevention in cats
