Being a veterinarian and an animal rights defender https://vetclinpathjournal.org/being-a-veterinarian-and-an-animal-rights-defender/ Sat, 05 Mar 2022 12:10:00 +0000 https://vetclinpathjournal.org/being-a-veterinarian-and-an-animal-rights-defender/

The best career path, for me, is one that focuses on the things you love to do.

I love animals, so I want to be a veterinarian so I can treat them and help prevent disease.

Author Yumi with Milky, Tagpi, Puti and the Pandacoco puppy.

I also want to fight for animal rights. Through my love for digital art and animation, I hope to one day use my arts skills to create communication materials to help stop or prevent different forms of animal cruelty.

I love fighting for animal rights just as much as I love fighting for human rights. I believe that animals should not be treated as if they are beings whose life is worth less than ours because they are “just animals” as others say. This is my personal position on animal rights. I’ve seen so many people treat animals like they’re just things they can get rid of whenever they want. I believe that animals deserve fair treatment, as fair as humans. They are living beings after all, much like us.

Animal cruelty continues despite animal welfare laws. I see on TV and on the internet that there are only a few officials here in our country who care about animals. There was once a story in the news about animals in the zoo not having enough food and not being cared for properly. But no one did anything until an animal rights group staged a protest and the story caught the attention of the media.

Going through Republic Act 8485, also known as the “Animal Welfare Act of 1998”, as amended by Republic Act 10631, I can tell that there are a few gaps in said act. . In article 6 of the said law, for example, although it is great that dogfights and horse fights are listed as illegal in this article, it is limited only to these two types of betting games. What about cockfights? Aren’t roosters also animals that should also be covered by law? Why is cockfighting not mentioned when it is very common here in our country?

“SECOND. 6. It is unlawful for any person to torture any animal, to neglect to provide adequate care, to provide shelter or to abuse any animal or to subject any dog ​​or horse to dog or horse fighting, to kill or cause or cause torture, or deprived of adequate care, sustenance or shelter, or abused or used in research or experiments not expressly authorized by the Animal Welfare Committee. Republic 8485 otherwise known as the “Animal Welfare Act of 1998” as amended by Republic Act 10631, PHILIPPINE CONGRESS, THIRD REGULAR SESSION, October 3, 2013)

My mom and I are writing an article about the loopholes in animal welfare law. We hope lawmakers will take notice and acknowledge our comments on this. I hope one day I will be able to make a difference on the issue of animal rights and urge others to push for amendments to the Animal Welfare Act that are indeed in favor of animals.

But defending animal rights is not enough for me. That’s why I want to go into veterinary medicine. I also want to save animal lives medically.

I know Veterinary Medicine is now a five year program offered by an accredited college or university. I want to contribute to the demand of veterinarians here in the Philippines. According to the Ministry of Labor and Employment, there could be a shortage of veterinarians in the country since many choose to go abroad because the salary is much higher than what the local job offers (veterinarian , Local Employment Bureau-Department of Labor and Employment of the Philippines, 2011). Even though the financial prospects abroad are better, I chose to stay here because of my advocacy.

I choose a career path involved in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and control of animal diseases, including terrestrial and aquatic animals.

A vet is what I’ve always wanted to be since I can remember. When I was barely three years old, my mother told me that there was an “animal doctor”. Right then, I knew that was what I wanted to be: an animal doctor.

My goal when I finally become a veterinarian is to be the first to create both the most comprehensive hospital and animal shelter. I want to build a fully functional shelter hospital with all the necessary equipment to prevent diseases, diagnose and treat animals.

And, since I also want to become an animator or a digital artist, I plan to take a course in animation after taking veterinary medicine.

My mom and I actually started an animal shelter and I hope our little shelter will have better facilities when I finish school. But we continue to help animals in need even now, despite the limitations. I rely on what my mother tells me about time and opportunities. She said, “Do what you can and with what you have now because time won’t wait for you.”

Blea asks California Superior Court to release suspension https://vetclinpathjournal.org/blea-asks-california-superior-court-to-release-suspension/ Mon, 28 Feb 2022 23:13:00 +0000 https://vetclinpathjournal.org/blea-asks-california-superior-court-to-release-suspension/

California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) Equine Medical Director Jeff Blea has filed a writ of warrant in the California Superior Court for Los Angeles County seeking to lift the California Veterinary Medical Board’s interim suspension on his veterinary license.

The court filing, dated Feb. 24, also seeks declaratory relief and an injunction, arguing that the position of equine medical director does not require an active license, and that Blea, UC Davis and the CHRB will continue to suffer “irreparable harm.” “if California’s chief horse racing veterinarian remains unable to perform his duties.

UC Davis placed Blea on administrative leave from his role as equine medical director in January. This position is first nominated by the Dean of UC Davis, who then contracts with the CHRB for the services of the appointee.

In the meantime, UC Davis has brought in “academic staff” to serve as the CHRB’s Equine Medical Director.

On Monday, Blea also officially kicked off the ball rolling toward a formal hearing into the veterinary board’s charges against him, by filing a notice of defense.

In the meantime, Blea will also likely seek to suspend the interim suspension of his veterinary license until the Superior Court can formally hear the case, his attorney, George Wallace, said.

Another purpose of the stay would be to potentially delay the formal hearing on the charges against Blea so that the veterinary board would receive advice from the Superior Court “about what the law is,” Wallace said.

Earlier this year, the veterinary board announced that an emergency hearing had resulted in an interim suspension of Blea’s veterinary license for a number of alleged offences, including the alleged administration of drugs to horses from race without prior examination, without establishing a diagnosis and without a medical examination. need.

The veterinary board also claimed Blea posed a ‘danger to public health, safety and welfare’, due to his oversight as equine medical director of the highly publicized spirit death inquest. de Medina trained by Bob Baffert (Protonico), the Kentucky Derby winner who collapsed and died after a scheduled practice on December 6 at Santa Anita.

The autopsy and post-mortem examination of Medina Spirit’s death is now complete, with cause of death undetermined. John Pascoe, the associate executive dean of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, ultimately oversaw the necropsy examination.

According to various leading veterinary medical experts, the charges brought by the veterinary board against Blea, including the amended charges earlier this month, consist largely of lax record keeping.

Veterinary experts also suggest the Vet Council’s investigation potentially failed to take into account the unusual nature of backyard veterinary practice, where vets – even those with multiple barns in their care – can establish the type of daily relationship with their animals absent from traditional small farms. animal practice.

In his Superior Court filing, Blea argues that the interim suspension of his veterinary license is invalid for several reasons, including how the administrative law judge who issued the suspension used a “preponderance of evidence” to support his decision. decision, instead of the required a higher standard based on “clear and convincing evidence with reasonable certainty”.

The judge’s findings “are not supported by the weight of the evidence, or by substantial evidence, or not at all,” the filing says.

Moreover, even though Blea retired from medical practice in June last year – to take on the role of equine medical director – there is “no substantial evidence” to suggest that even if he was still practicing, he poses a “danger” to anyone, the filing states.

“The prosecution is devoid of any assertion or suggestion that any equine patient of Dr. Blea was harmed in any way, or that any of Dr. Blea’s clients (the owners and trainers of these horses, the “consumers” of veterinary services whose interests must be protected by the Council of Veterinary Doctors) have the slightest complaint about its professional practices in the care of these patients, ”adds the file.

The veterinary council also argued that the statutory definition of the position of equine medical director means that Blea actively engages in veterinary medicine while carrying out his duties.

In his Superior Court filing, Blea disputes that assessment, arguing that the veterinary board’s reading of the state’s Business and Professions Code is “overbroad and unreasonable” and incorrect “in law.”

The CHRB threw their weight behind Blea. Earlier this month, senior CHRB officials said the agency was considering a similar legal intervention in Superior Court on Blea’s behalf.

On Monday, CHRB executive director Scott Chaney said the agency was still finalizing that strategy.

the NDT also asked UC Davis whether Blea would return to his duties as equine medical director if the California Superior Court grants a reprieve from his interim suspension. UC Davis has yet to respond.

LUBBOCK, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) — Here is a press release from Texas Tech University:

Thousands of miles away in southern Brazil, Fernanda Trindade da Rosa grew up in a small, thriving farming community. Little did she know then that her education would lead to training, degrees and a career in animal health.

She quickly understood the infinite possibilities of One Health that go beyond animal health. It was then that she narrowed her focus to explore new solutions that will benefit the health of animals, humans and ecosystems.

Her journey now takes her far from home to Amarillo; a community where agriculture also thrives. After years of honing her skills and knowledge, she brings her passion to Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine at Amarillo (SVM) as an Assistant Professor of Immunology. She took office on January 3.

“’A goal without priority is impotent.’ This quote has been part of my life and I felt this energy during my first visit to TTU SVM,” said Fernanda Rosa. “I am delighted to be part of such a team where everyone’s priority is to have a positive impact on the student’s career path from day one. I am excited to see the outstanding future professionals who will graduate from this school in a few years, and I am grateful to be part of their journey.

Fernanda Rosa has an integrative background where she particularly enjoys researching nutrition, inflammation and molecular techniques, and has worked with many different species. His distinctive skill set is so applicable to the practice of One Health.

For Fernanda Rosa, Amarillo is the perfect place for her research because she looks forward to collaborating with other experts at Texas Tech University Health Science Center at Amarillo (TTUHSC). There are also plenty of livestock operations in the area that will allow him to really get started on discovering One Health solutions.

In addition to being an exceptional researcher, she has a burning desire to mentor students and pass on the knowledge she has acquired over the years. She brings the same level of energy to Texas Tech for teaching and training those with a passion for research and discovery.

“We’ve all heard so much about the importance of immunity over the past 2 years,” said Guy Loneragan, Dean of the School of Veterinary Medicine. “Dr. Rosa’s expertise in immunity and nutrition will pay off as she discovers ways to understand and improve ways to promote health and productivity, and fight disease. We We are thrilled that she has joined our school and our community here in Amarillo.

Fernanda Rosa began her career as an intern at the Mammalian NutriPhysioGenomics Laboratory at the University of Illinois. She was intrigued by how certain nutrients can play an important role in systemic infection, and that’s when she became fascinated with nutritional immunology.

However, it wasn’t until she earned her master’s and doctoral degrees that she began to interweave her training as an animal scientist with human health. This was the defining moment for her to start focusing her research on One Health.

Fernanda Rosa joins SVM after completing her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Arkansas Nutritional Immunology Laboratory for Medical Sciences. There, she acquired a high quality training in One Health.

“Dr. Rosa’s work on gut microbial composition and immune response in infancy is critical in addressing the importance of nutrition and metabolism in infant development,” said Thu “Annelise” Nguyen, Dean research associate and professor of toxicology “She will develop a research program that will use animal models and in vitro experiments to study the biological mechanism involved in the diet-related effect on the immune system. We are delighted that she is developing this research program here at SVM.

She received her bachelor’s degree in animal science from the Federal University of Pelotas, Brazil, in 2014, and her master’s degree in animal science from Oregon State University in 2016.

Vets find dogs and cats can catch COVID | Pets https://vetclinpathjournal.org/vets-find-dogs-and-cats-can-catch-covid-pets/ Sun, 06 Feb 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://vetclinpathjournal.org/vets-find-dogs-and-cats-can-catch-covid-pets/

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – As omicron sweeps through households in Florida, more pet owners are reporting their dogs or cats showing signs of coronavirus.

While COVID-19 in pets is a rare event, veterinarians now know it can happen. Pets around the world, including cats and dogs, have been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, primarily after close contact with people with COVID-19.

A maker of a COVID PCR test for pets, IDEXX Laboratories, tested more than 5,000 specimens taken from dogs, cats and horses with respiratory illnesses. Tests have confirmed more than three dozen cases of COVID in a dog or cat during the pandemic. Animals were most often in a focus where humans had the virus.

Unlike the proliferation of home kits for humans, the COVID test for pets is a nasal or throat swab that must be ordered and performed by a veterinarian.

Florida vets treat symptoms

Dr. Alison Birken of Victoria Park Animal Hospital in Fort Lauderdale said if a dog or cat comes to her office with symptoms such as diarrhea or vomiting and a member of the household has had COVID, she treats symptoms rather than testing the animal for the virus.

“It’s not common for dogs and cats to contract COVID from humans, and if they do, the signs are mild,” she said.

Cats are more susceptible than dogs and more likely to contract COVID from their owners, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some cats that tested positive for COVID became ill with breathing and breathing problems, and one cat also had vomiting and diarrhea, according to VCA Animal Hospitals veterinarians.

Big cats, especially tigers and lions, have also been affected by the virus. An outbreak at the Bronx Zoo in New York state, likely due to an infected zookeeper, has resulted in coughing and respiratory problems in four tigers and three lions. Another outbreak of Malayan tigers has occurred at the Knoxville Zoo in Tennessee.

Rodents also got the coronavirus. Last week, Hong Kong announced the culling of more than 1,000 pet hamsters and the quarantine of their owners in response to fears the coronavirus had been passed from pets to humans. COVID cases have also been confirmed in mink, ferrets, gorillas, snow leopards and cougars.

What the research shows

Researchers at Texas A&M University sampled more than 580 pets living in homes where at least one person was infected and found that 100 of the animals were also infected. Only about a quarter of those infected showed signs, and they were mild.

“Infected people who share space with their pets can infect their pets, just as humans can infect other people,” said Sarah Hamer, senior researcher at Texas A&M examining the impact of COVID. -19 on pets.

Because Omicron is highly contagious, social media is filled with messages from pet owners who are convinced their dog or cat is carrying the virus.

Wellington vet Dr Mark Planco said he had only seen one dog with upper respiratory disease after its owners tested positive. Because the symptoms were mild, the dog was not tested and picked up on his own.

“COVID testing is happening primarily on farms where the virus could cause significant losses,” Planco said. “Right now, susceptibility is low for pets. We may end up with a mutation that is more capable of infecting dogs and cats, but so far I haven’t seen it.

The CDC has said a dog or cat with COVID will exhibit these symptoms: fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sluggishness, sneezing, runny nose, loss of appetite, discharge from the eyes, vomiting, and diarrhea.

With omicron still infecting people in Florida, vets say if you have COVID, you can also take steps to prevent your cat or dog from getting the virus: and sleep in the same bed. And wear a mask and wash your hands before and after interacting with your pet.

Dr. Lori Teller, a veterinarian and clinical associate professor at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, said pet owners need not worry too much. “A few hundred dogs and cats tested positive compared to millions of people.” She said there is no research indicating that pets can transmit COVID to each other.

If your dog or cat shows signs, vets say they would test them for the most common respiratory illnesses first, before ordering a COVID test. Teller said vets will treat symptoms by recommending your pet get plenty of rest and fluids and, if needed, anti-inflammatory or fever-reducing medication.

Teller said no one knows why some dogs and cats get COVID. “That is the question of the hour. It is likely that these animals with comorbidities such as diabetes or heart disease are at risk. The same comorbidities that put humans at higher risk.

“The best way to protect your pet is to protect yourself,” she said.
