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.

Characteristics of antebrachial fractures associated with a successful outcome among free-ranging birds of prey that received treatment in a rehabilitation program
Do wing fractures in birds necessarily mean a poor prognosis? Maybe not. Researchers at the University of Montreal found that of 519 birds of prey treated for wing fractures through a rehabilitation program, 245 (47%) had a successful outcome.

Evaluation of subcutaneous administration of alfaxalone-midazolam and dexmedetomidine-midazolam for sedation of ball pythons (Python regius)
University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers showed that SC administration of midazolam with alfaxalone or dexmedetomidine can induce clinically relevant sedation in healthy ball pythons. But caution: cardiopulmonary depression was noted with both sedation protocols.

Impact of wearing a service vest on three-dimensional truncal motion in dogs
The trunk motion of dogs when walking and trotting was significantly reduced when the dogs were wearing a service vest, compared with when they were not wearing a vest.

Histologic changes and gene expression patterns in biopsy specimens from bacteria-inoculated and noninoculated excisional body and limb wounds in horses healing by second intention
No clear predictors of infection were identified in biopsy specimens from equine wounds healing by second intention. Cellular communication network factor may be useful for understanding the mechanisms associated with poor wound healing in horses and requires further study.

Evaluation of a ventral and a left lateral approach to coelioscopy in bearded dragons (Pogona vitticeps)
In bearded dragons, coelioscopy can be safely and effectively performed by use of a ventral or left-lateral approach. The approach used should be based on the structures requiring evaluation.
