    Pain Management in Small Animals

    Posted on January 5, 2012, under Tutorial

    dog injuredAnimals, just like people, feel pain when they are injured or sick. However recognizing pain in animals can be difficult because animals do not act the same way that people do when they are in pain. You can play an important role in helping your pet’s pain by learning to recognize some common indicators of pain and discomfort. Physical Signs (change in heart rate, enlarged pupils, heavy breathing, slowed reflexes) and Behavioral Signs (reduced appetite, withdrawn behavior, anxiety, mood or personality changes, irritability etc.)

    Because signs of pain can be subtle and difficult to recognize, animals suspected of being in pain are usually treated and watched for improvement. Many animals benefit from treatment with combinations of different types of analgesic drugs, rather than just one type. When analgesic drugs are prescribed in combination, a smaller than usual dose of each can usually provide adequate pain relief. Animals in pain can also have anxiety, so a veterinarian might prescribe an anxiety drug for use after analgesic drugs have been given. If pain relief medication is given consistently for several days, the dose should be decreased gradually rather than stopped abruptly.

    For many animals, nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are useful as part of pain management after surgery or to relief chronic pain. NSAIDs work by reducing inflammation, one cause of pain. NSAIDs intended for use in humans should never be given to your pet unless specifically prescribed by your veterinarian.

    As in acute pain, both drug and nondrug methods can be used to treat chronic pain. Some drugs that relieve acute pain are also used to treat chronic pain, such as opioids and NSAIDs. Nondrug treatment of chronic pain depends on both the cause of the pain and the species of animal. For example, in a dog suffering from osteoarthritis pain, the goals of treatment are to increase the dog’s ability to move around, to limit the progression of the disease, and even to help repair the tissue within the affected joints. Some or all of these goals might be achieved by weight control, moderate exercise etc. Treatment with certain protective agents such as chondroitin sulfate or glucosamine may help heal the cartilage, prevent further breakdown of the cartilage and stimulate cartilage regrowth.

    Color Atlas Of Veterinary Anatomy: Volume 3, The Dog And Cat

    Posted on December 28, 2007, under Veterinary Book

    Color Atlas Of Veterinary Anatomy Volume 3 The Dog And Cat

    In this book, Dr. Done and his colleagues at the Royal Veterinary College in London have produced beautiful picture atlas of canine gross anatomy. The book is primarily made up of hundreds of excellent-quality highly detailed photographs depicting dissection of a canine cadaver. Each photograph is accompanied by a brief description of the view and a labeled line drawing identifying structures visible in the photograph. The bulk of the atlas treats canine anatomy by a regional approach, starting with the head and progressing to the pelvis. The first chapter contains a very useful depiction of surface anatomy and its relationship to the boney skeleton (juxtaposition of photographs of a live dog with a skeleton is an outstanding way to teach palpable landmarks); radiographic anatomy accompanies these sections. The last chapter addresses feline anatomy in an abbreviated format similar to the canine anatomy.

Unlike any other system from any other supplier, Voyager offers a different way of thinking about data storage, access and retrieval, software maintenance, installation and client interaction. Voyager offer Networking Security and Stability via their SQL Server Clustering.


    Two or more servers are configured in a cluster arrangement to operate as a “virtual” SQL server. Each server has software locally installed AND also installed via a shared sub-system with the other servers in the cluster.
    A “heartbeat” is heard between servers in the cluster, ensuring each server is functioning properly, if not, then “Failover” occurs – i.e. if one machine in the cluster fails, another assumes the responsibilities of the downed server thus the hardware failure does not result in loss of functionality for the application.

As an “All-in-One” solution, high priced add-ons are not required to experience the core functions that a clinic management suite should provide. Truly designed by “Veterinarians for Veterinarians”.
