Journals info

The AVMA publishes two peer-reviewed, scientific journals: the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Journal of Veterinary Research. Published twice monthly, the JAVMA provides reports of clinical research, feature articles, and regular columns of interest to veterinarians in private and public practice. News stories from each issue of JAVMA are posted online 10 days to two weeks before the cover date of each issue. The AJVR is published monthly and contains reports of novel research that bridges the gap between basic research and clinical practice in veterinary medicine and associated biological sciences, along with news of interest to veterinary researchers.

Injuries and illnesses among human remains detection–certified search-and-recovery dogs deployed to northern California in response to the Camp Fire wildfire of November 2018
The California Camp Fire of 2018 posed several hazards for search-and-recovery dogs deployed to the scene. Collected injury and illness data may help minimize harm to these heroic dogs in future deployments.

Accessibility of veterinary hospitals for clients with mobility-related disabilities

Effect of 3% chloroprocaine hydrochloride when used for median and ulnar regional nerve blocks in lame horses
3% chloroprocaine had a more rapid onset and provided better analgesia for median and ulnar nerve blocks in horses, compared with 2% mepivacaine. Thus, 3% chloroprocaine might be useful for regional nerve blocks in horses during complicated lameness evaluations.

Analgesic efficacy of an intravenous constant rate infusion of a morphine-lidocaine-ketamine combination in Holstein calves undergoing umbilical herniorrhaphy
Constant-rate infusion (CRI) of a morphine-lidocaine-ketamine solution to calves undergoing umbilical herniorrhaphy provided adequate postoperative analgesia, but the technical support required for administration of a CRI limits its use to hospital settings.

Comparison of left and right atrial volumes determined by two- and three-dimensional echocardiography with those determined by multidetector computed tomography for healthy dogs
Researchers from Oregon State University report that echocardiography might be an acceptable alternative to ECG -gated multidetector CT for measurement of left atrial volume but not right atrial volume in dogs. Further research is necessary to validate those findings.
