Osteoallograft Orthomix is a real bone graft designed specifically for veterinary use. It consists of osteoinductive Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM) and osteoconductive cancellous bone chips. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that places new bone or a replacement material into spaces between or around broken bone (fractures) or in holes in bone (defects) to aid in healing.
Using bone allograft allows you to avoid autograft procurement and associated morbidity risks. Also, because it not only provides osteoconductive scaffold but also native, osteoinductive growth factors (BMPs), you will achieve faster and stronger bone healing compared with using bone substitutes.
Bone grafting is used to repair bone fractures that are extremely complex, pose a significant risk to the patient, or fail to heal properly. Bone grafting is also used to help fusion between vertebrae, correct deformities, or provide structural support for fractures of the spine. In addition to fracture repair , bone grafting is used to repair defects in bone caused by congenital disorders, traumatic injury, or surgery for bone cancer. Bone grafts are also used for facial or cranial reconstruction.
The demineralization of allograft during tissue processing allows for immediate access to the growth factors (BMPs) inherent in natural bone when it is placed into the surgery site. This results in an immediate beginning of the healing process and helps to make allograft as effective as autograft.
Bone will heal faster when voids are filled with bone graft, because it provides osteoconductive scaffold for host bone to grow on and native, osteoinductive BMPs that attract osteoblasts to the site. Even when there are no voids, bone graft provides these same advantages. Faster healing not only gets your patients back to normal activity faster it also increases the chances of a successful healing outcome.
In many cases, allows you to use more bone graft than you can procure from the patient. Allograft can also be used to augment insufficient quantities of autograft. Osteoallograft Orthomix Reduces your time and cost, because it allows you to skip autograft harvesting. Studies show that allografts are as effective as autograft in bone healing.
The Osteoallograft Orthomix Processed aseptically meeting USP guidelines for sterility. The Osteoallograft Orthomix is Acellular and processed by methods that reduce immunogenicity, which eliminates concerns about immune reactions and the need for any type of patient matching.

Give your dog a constant cool spot in summer, relief from furnace and fireplace heat in winter, and cushions support for vulnerable joints all year. Non-electric, non-toxic, paw-puncture proof, and easy to clean. Fleas hate the cool environment but dogs love it.
It is rather difficult to move once it’s filled with water so be sure to place it where you want it first. I would suggest using a light cover for added protection.
Use indoors, outside (away from direct sunlight), and in crate for travel. Eases heat discomfort, joint problems, skin disorders, hip problems, and more. 20 mil thick outer membrane is tough enough to park a truck on and not pop!
As tough as this non-toxic membrane is, however, it will not harm your dog should the bed be chewed* by accident. Made in the USA and guaranteed for 2 years. Must be filled with water. *Not recommended for puppies or adult dogs that chew objects. Details

Empower Wireless is an ultimate veterinary digital radiography with highest contrast resolution of DR panel. It is designed exclusively for veterinary use. The DICOM 3 Compatible allows user to send/receive images instantly. It is multi species veterinary software, from equine, reptile, to companion animals.
The highest contrast resolution of DR panel results in image detail and differences in tissue densities that give you the ability to detect subtle lesions earlier. Easy use and accessible from multiple locations, both surgery or emergency use. The Cesium Iodide Structured Phosphor Scintillator has a higher sensitivity and higher resolution than other flat panel detectors, so user only needs 5 seconds from exposure time to see images.

In just the program’s second year, students in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine are proving they are among the best in the nation.
The UNL Student Chapter of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners recently won first place in a competition at the American Association of Bovine Practitioners’ annual meeting.
The club, composed of veterinary students in UNL’s veterinary medicine program, was honored for a case report it submitted to the AABP Student Case Presentation Competition. The report summarized club members’ findings in a project in which they studied reproductive health problems at a dairy.
The report was one of 11 selected for presentation at the AABP’s annual meeting in North Carolina this fall. Students Jennafer Glaesemann of Fairbury, Neb., and Jeffry Faimon of Lawrence, Neb., gave the winning presentation.
Last year was the club’s first year in existence–and the first year for the Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine–and all club members now are sophomores, making their achievement even more impressive, since their competition was composed of third- and fourth-year students.
“This is an exceptional accomplishment because they were competing with the best abstracts selected from veterinary colleges across the U.S. and Canada,” said David Smith, veterinary professor in the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences. “Further, the case presentations are usually from upper-class students. It is very unusual for students in their first year of veterinary school to be involved in clinical cases.”
Six UNL students attended the AABP conference.
The Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine is a partnership with Iowa State University in which Nebraska students receive their first two years of education at UNL and complete their DVM educations at ISU.
