A tomografia computadorizada (TC) é uma técnica de diagnóstico por imagem que tem sido amplamente utilizada na medicina veterinária nos últimos anos, tanto em centros de ensino superior quanto por centros médicos veterinários de referência. Desde o surgimento do primeiro tomógrafo, a TC tem incorporado os avanços tecnológicos da informática e da área de diagnóstico por imagem. A TC utiliza raios-X para formar imagens em cortes de um objeto em diferentes planos, sem sobreposição das estruturas internas que o compõem. Essa modalidade de imagem tem sido utilizada na medicina veterinária especialmente na avaliação da cavidade nasal e dos seios paranasais, de neoformações musculoesqueléticas, alterações de bula timpânica, traumas e fraturas de crânio, afecções da articulação temporomandibular, degeneração ou hérnia de disco intervertebral, neoplasias pulmonares ou do mediastino e neoplasias cerebrais, entre outras. Este artigo revisa as bases da TC e sua utilização na medicina veterinária; Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging technique that has been widely used in veterinary medicine in recent years, both in veterinary schools and veterinary medical reference centers.

A medicina veterinária vive, há cerca de 20 anos, o nascimento e o estabelecimento das suas especialidades como áreas reconhecidas legalmente de atuação no Brasil. Parte da formação destes profissionais especializados passa por cursos de pós-graduação lato sensu, modalidade de ensino até então pouco praticada na profissão e que tem acarretado na mudança de um paradigma: diferentes meios e outras necessidades de se buscar informação científica. O objetivo deste estudo foi entender o perfil destes profissionais, se eles acessam informações científicas, quais os canais oferecidos pelos cursos e utilizados pelos alunos e qual a importância de e-mail e listas de discussão, canais utilizados pelos curso de forma ampla. Foi estudado um universo de 169 alunos de oito cursos de pós-graduação lato sensu em medicina veterinária entre os meses de setembro e novembro de 2009. O perfil do alunos dos cursos avaliados foi composto por uma maioria de pessoas do sexo feminino, com idade predominante entre 18 e 30 anos de idade, oriundos em sua maioria (78,11%) dos estados de São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro. Os alunos estudados acessaram informações científicas de diversas maneiras ao longo do curso, mas os principais canais utilizados foram as aulas presenciais...

O processo penal no Brasil é conjunto de atos jurídicos, formalmente ordenados, com o objetivo de apurar a veracidade de fatos criminosos, resultando na sentença condenatória ou absolvição do agente envolvido no crime. Ocorre que durante o procedimento inclui a figura do perito criminal como representante legal para a análise de provas das infrações. As diversas modalidades do crime resultam em complexos levantamentos de provas, exigindo do perito criminal o conhecimento técnico - científico do crime específico a ser examinado. Os Institutos de perícias são formados por profissionais multidisciplinares que tem como objetivo atingir a maior abrangência das ciências para auxiliar na justiça. Com a nova modalidade de crime de maus-tratos aos animais, o Estado tem a responsabilidade de materializar os vestígios relacionados com os animais, convergindo o respectivo trabalho ao perito criminal com formação em medicina veterinária. Atualmente é reduzido o número profissionais veterinários nos quadros dos peritos criminais, interferindo nos compromissos da veracidade ou autenticidade dos fatos. Paralelamente a esta nova demanda, os institutos de ensino superior estão implementando a nova especialidade denominada de Medicina Veterinária Legal que tem como objetivo disciplinar o conhecimento da medicina veterinária no auxilio da justiça. O presente trabalho foi dividido em duas partes...

Amphetamine abuse in human beings has increased, resulting in many reports of toxicity and death. In the US over 4 million people have abused amphetamines at least once, thus small animals are exposed to increased accidental poisoning risk. This report describes an acute amphetamine poisoning in a dog due to ingestion of 15 mg/kg fenproporex, leading to typical signs of catecholamines release and effects in different organ systems. Similar clinical and laboratory findings observed in human beings are reviewed and physiopathogenic mechanisms discussed, as well as the therapeutic approaches available in veterinary medicine.

Dissertação de Mestrado Integrado em Medicina Veterinária; A utilização de fármacos citotóxicos em Medicina Humana iniciou-se na década de 40, e desde então tem vindo a evoluir, tornando-se numa prática corrente na terapêutica oncológica. A exposição a estes fármacos representa um risco de saúde ocupacional, documentado em diversos estudos. Por esta razão, em Medicina Humana, as regras de segurança para a manipulação destes fármacos constituem um assunto muito discutido, existindo um grande número de entidades e organizações que elaboram documentos, contendo as normas orientadoras para um contacto seguro com os fármacos citotóxicos. Apesar da sua extrema importância, a segurança na manipulação dos fármacos citotóxicos continua a ser um tema pouco abordado em Medicina Veterinária, existindo um número muito reduzido de documentos que referem as normas orientadoras para uma manipulação segura. Foi objectivo, do presente trabalho, comparar estas duas realidades distintas, Medicina Veterinária vs Medicina Humana, no que respeita ao contacto com os fármacos citotóxicos, de forma a contribuir para uma maximização da protecção dos profissionais de Medicina Veterinária, bem como a do próprio paciente e a do ambiente.

The objective of this study was to describe the demographics of the Class of 2006, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, and to determine which factors influenced the graduates’ career path choices. Data were collected via an on-line survey and the response rate was 95.7% (67/70). The majority (57%) of graduates were starting their veterinary career in a food animal-related (FAR) job. Two factors were significantly associated with this choice: 1) those raised in, or near, a small center (population < 10 000) were 3.4 times (P = 0.03) more likely to accept a FAR position than were those raised in a large center (> 10 000), and 2) graduates with a bachelor of science in agriculture (BSc Ag) were 4.5 times (P = 0.04) more likely to begin their career as a FAR practitioner than were those without such a degree. However, 9 of the 16 graduates having a BSc Ag had an urban upbringing.

Needlestick injuries are an inherent risk of handling needles during the course of veterinary practice. While significant effort has been expended to reduce needlestick injuries in human medicine, a relatively lax approach seems to be prevalent in veterinary medicine. It appears that needlestick injuries are very common among veterinary personnel and that serious adverse effects, while uncommon, do occur. Clients may also receive injuries in clinics during the course of animal restraint, and at home following prescription of injectable medications or fluids. Because of occupational health, personal health, and liability concerns, veterinary practices should review the measures they are taking to reduce the likelihood of needlestick injuries and develop written needlestick injury avoidance protocols.

Between January 2002 and June 2007, uropathogens were isolated from 473 of 1557 canine urine samples submitted to Prairie Diagnostic Services from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Culture and susceptibility results were analyzed, retrospectively, to estimate the prevalence of common bacterial uropathogens in dogs with urinary tract infections and to identify changes in antimicrobial resistance. The most common pathogens identified were Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus intermedius, Enterococcus spp., and Proteus spp. Antimicrobial resistance increased during the study period, particularly among recurrent E. coli isolates. Using the formula to help select rational antimicrobial therapy (FRAT), bacterial isolates were most likely to be susceptible to gentamicin, fluoroquinolones, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, and groups 4 and 5 (third generation) cephalosporins.

The stem cell field in veterinary medicine continues to evolve rapidly both experimentally and clinically. Stem cells are most commonly used in clinical veterinary medicine in therapeutic applications for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries in horses and dogs. New technologies of assisted reproduction are being developed to apply the properties of spermatogonial stem cells to preserve endangered animal species. The same methods can be used to generate transgenic animals for production of pharmaceuticals or for use as biomedical models. Small and large animal species serve as valuable models for preclinical evaluation of stem cell applications in human beings and in veterinary patients in areas such as spinal cord injury and myocardial infarction. However, these applications have not been implemented in the clinical treatment of veterinary patients. Reviews on the use of animal models for stem cell research have been published recently. Therefore, in this review, animal model research will be reviewed only in the context of supporting the current clinical application of stem cells in veterinary medicine.

In 2008, a compulsory national basic teaching qualification was introduced for all university teachers in the Netherlands. At that time all eight University Medical Centres (UMCs) and the only Faculty of Veterinary Medicine had adopted or were setting up teacher development programmes. This study explores how these programmes relate to each other and to the basic teaching qualification. To gather information on teacher development programmes in the UMCs and the Veterinary Medicine Faculty an online survey was filled out by teacher development representatives from each of them. The programmes had main features in common (e.g. competency based and portfolio assessment), but differed somewhat in contents according to the local situation. Importantly, they had all been formally accepted as equivalent to the basic teaching qualification. We consider the freedom to tailor the qualifications to the medical context as well as to the local situation of the UMCs and the Veterinary Medicine Faculty one of the major success factors and the well-established collaboration between teacher development representatives of the UMCs and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine as another. Challenges for the future include embedding the teacher development programmes in the institutional organizations and maintaining and further developing the programmes and the competencies of the qualified teachers...

OBJECTIVE: To explore and gain an understanding of what "clinical communication skills" mean to veterinarians working in private practice and what implications this might have for veterinary medical education. METHODS: Qualitative research methods were used to purposefully sample a range of veterinary practitioners from a pool of South Australian veterinary practices who were interviewed to determine their understanding of what communication skills mean in the context of veterinary practice. Interviews were conducted with fourteen veterinary practitioners. Participants were sampled from a range of ages, veterinary schools of graduation plus urban and rural locations. Interview transcripts were analysed for themes, definitions and contexts. RESULTS: Participants' accounts included a number of skills which they considered to be "communication". Some of the definitions of these skills parallel communication skills and competencies for human medicine on which communication skills training incorporated into veterinary curricula to date have largely been based. However, the veterinarians in this study also raised interesting contextual differences unique to the veterinary profession, such as communication with the animal, selling service...

Dentre os componentes da estratégia dos prestadores de serviços, a determinação de custos, margens e preços finais se constitui como elemento de elevada importância para manutenção da viabilidade econômica, dentro de um mercado que exige melhores serviços, com a manutenção de custos em patamares que permitam rentabilidade frente aos reembolsos e assegurem uma posição de captação e manutenção de clientes. As pequenas e médias empresas têm importante papel socio-econômico no cenário nacional, e há uma percepção de falta de práticas gerenciais adequadas no setor de medicina veterinária. Alega-se que o conhecimento contábil exerce papel central na adoção das práticas utilizadas. Desta forma, a pesquisa é conduzida no setor de serviços de clínica médica veterinária para avaliar empiricamente o nível de conhecimento contábil conceitual dos gestores, quais variáveis contingenciais e pessoais interferem no conhecimento contábil e de que forma esse conhecimento interfere nas práticas gerenciais. A bibliografia indica que o conhecimento contábil é importante variável contingente, afetando as práticas e o desempenho das organizações. A Upper Echelons Theory argumenta que uma organização é reflexo da decisão de seus gestores e que atributos pessoais observáveis do gestor podem ser utilizados como meio de influência das práticas adotadas. A pesquisa contribui para a literatura a respeito de Teoria da Contingência e Upper Echelons Theory. A metodologia aplicada nesta pesquisa foi um survey com 30 itens...

This paper analyses the impact of laboratory medicine on veterinary medicine in Spain at the turn of the twentieth century. It is considered from a perspective that places the laboratory at the centre of a strategy for introducing the ideal of progress into veterinary medicine at a sensitive moment in its history. In the adverse context created by the steady replacement of horses —the principal recipients of veterinary care— by motor vehicles, an awareness grew that the time had come to reinvent the profession. The arrival of experimental veterinary medicine, especially the area linked to bacteriological laboratories, opened the door to explore new prospects for the future and became one of the bases for the discipline’s modernisation. A new professional was envisaged to attain this objective, the «scientific laboratory veterinarian», whose knowledge would be based on experimentation and who would master highly specialised technical skills. This vision of a profession in search of prestige would bring to light conflicting interests among the different healthcare professions and would emphasise the importance of adopting patterns of behaviour that led to identification of these new veterinary surgeons with the elite of society.

Avanços na medicina veterinária resultaram em benefícios significativos na vida de animais de estimação nos últimos 20 anos, e o aumento da expectativa de vida para animais levou a uma maior prevalência de neoplasias em cães. A Epidemiologia do Câncer e as ferramentas de análise espacial, embora bem desenvolvidas na pesquisa oncológica humana, estão começando a serem exploradas na Oncologia Veterinária. A cidade de São Paulo, capital do estado de São Paulo, Brasil, é dividida em cinco regiões: Norte, Sul, Leste, Oeste e centro. O Hospital Veterinário da Faculdade de Medicina Veterinária e Zootecnia da Universidade de São Paulo (HOVET-SVMAS-USP) está localizado na região Oeste de São Paulo, Brasil, e admite casos de pequenos e grandes animais. Tumores mamários caninos são tão numerosos que não são tratados na rotina do HOVET. O objetivo deste trabalho foi realizar um estudo cartográfico para descrever a distribuição espacial dos casos prevalentes de neoplasias em cães a partir do HOVET. Dos 3.620 casos atendidos em 2002 e 2003, 380 (10,5%) casos eram de cães acometidos por tumores benignos e malignos. Não foi encontrada diferença estatística entre a distribuição dos 380 endereços entre as cinco regiões da cidade. Os resultados mostraram que o HOVET atende pacientes caninos de todas as regiões de São Paulo e que há uma distribuição espacial homogênea das neoplasias.

Myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) is the most common heart disease of dogs. The current management of MMVD in dogs is mostly pharmacological, and the recommendations for treatment are based on a number of veterinary studies. Notwithstanding the current consensus regarding the medical management of MMVD, there remains active debate as to which drugs are the most effective. In order to understand how recommendations are constructed in the pharmacological management of diseases, the veterinarian needs to understand the concept of evidence-based veterinary medicine, and how the findings of these studies can be applied in their own practices. This review summarises the current veterinary literature and explains how the consensus regarding the management of MMVD has been reached. This review highlights the limitations of veterinary studies in order to provide veterinary practitioners with a sense of the difficulty there is in establishing the benefit of one treatment over the other. Veterinarians should therefore apply treatment recommendations based on the best evidence, integrated with a pathomechanistic understanding of the disease process and clinical experience.
