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.

A survey of negative mental health outcomes, workplace and school climate, and identity disclosure for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and asexual veterinary professionals and students in the United States and United Kingdom
A 2016 survey of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and asexual veterinary professionals and students revealed comparatively high rates of suicidal ideation and suicide attempts. Professionals reported more welcoming climates and greater identity disclosure than did students; however, students reported greater access to institutional resources and policies.

Risk factors associated with work-preventing musculoskeletal discomfort in the upper extremities of bovine practitioners
In a survey of members of the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners, 15.5% (18/116) of respondents indicated they had experienced work-preventing upper extremity musculoskeletal discomfort in the previous 12 months. No association was identified between such discomfort and the number of reproductive examinations performed per year.

Accuracy of urine dipstick tests and urine glucose-to-creatinine ratios for assessment of glucosuria in dogs and cats
With a clinical chemistry analyzer as the reference standard, sensitivity of an automated dipstick reader for detection of glucosuria was 23% for canine urine samples (n = 271) and 68% for feline urine samples (254); specificity was 99% and 98%, respectively. Urine glucose-to-creatinine ratios provided no additional useful information.

Clinical evaluation of arterial blood pressure in anesthetized dogs by use of a veterinary-specific multiparameter monitor
Noninvasive blood pressure measurements determined by a veterinary-specific multiparameter monitor should be interpreted cautiously as they frequently underestimated invasive blood pressure measurements in healthy anesthetized dogs during periods of hypertension.

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of a novel analgesic with a deterrent to human opioid abuse (methadone-fluconazole-naltrexone) after oral administration in dogs
In healthy dogs, centrally mediated opioid effects of methadone-fluconazole were not altered by incorporation of naltrexone (an opioid abuse deterrent) in the formulation. Further study of the effects of naltrexone on methadone-fluconazole efficacy in dogs is necessary.

Efficacy of sodium iodide for prevention of respiratory disease in preweaned dairy calves
Oral administration of sodium iodide (20 mg/kg) to preweaned dairy calves achieved iodine concentrations presumed to be therapeutic in serum and nasal fluid but did not prevent respiratory disease in calves at a commercial calf-raising facility.
