    Postmortem examination in veterinary practice

    Published On: August 14, 2018 | Pages: 099 - 104

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Necropsy is the examination of animals after death and it helps in diagnosis of diseases. Necropsy includes systemic examination of dead animals, recording pathological lesions and interpretation approach to diagnosis of disease. The knowledge of histopathology, microbiology, immunology and toxicology is required for confirmation. The necropsy examination is an integral part of disease investigation; therefore veterinarian should have to know the techniques of postmortem examination, recording of lesions and collection of proper material for laboratory. ...

    Published On: August 14, 2018 | Pages: 087 - 097

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Molecular biological techniques are the best dimensions to diagnosis the disease process and its causative agents. The molecular biology technique is performed with sophisticated instruments or equipment’s required specialized trained personnel and undertaken in routine diagnosistic laboratories. The importance of using molecular biology techniques is to diagnosis many bacterial and viral diseases genomes by giving the standard for protein resolution, nucleic acid resolution, and blotting techniques. The following techniques are used in veterinary molecular biology laboratory. ...

    Serological and immunological test

    Published On: August 14, 2018 | Pages: 078 - 083

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Immunological and serological methods can detect the antibodies specific to a particular infection in serum or antigen in different body tissues or excretions or secretions. The animal diseases have been diagnosed by immunological and serological test since very long. The antibodies are produced in animal body as a result of body defense responses against the causative agents. However, detection of antibodies in serum is not sufficient to conclude diagnosis of animal’s disease. ...

    Microbiology examination

    Published On: August 14, 2018 | Pages: 065 - 077

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Veterinary microbiology laboratory examination is required to establish the clinical samples, etiology and line treatment through antibacterial sensitivity testing. Veterinarian should have to go for antimicrobial sensitive test before treatment of patient with antibacterial drugs, without testing of antimicrobial sensitive, the bacteria or microorganism may develop resistance to that drugs. In microbiology laboratory examinations, the clinical samples can be examined in different ways, the ways are by direct examination and culturing on media and isolation of organism. ...

    Milk examination

    Published On: August 14, 2018 | Pages: 062 - 064

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Milk production potential is a function of the number of mammary epithelial cells in the, gland, as well as the secretory activity of those cells [1,2]. Therefore, improved lactation performance can be achieved under conditions that enhance mammary cell proliferation (or decrease apoptosis), biochemical and structural differentiation of mammary epithelium, and synthesis and secretion of milk components [1]. ...

    Skin scraping

    Published On: August 14, 2018 | Pages: 059 - 061

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Skin scrapings are part of the basic database for all skin diseases. There are two types of skin scrapings, superficial and deep. Superficial scrapings do not cause capillary bleeding and provide information from the surface of the epidermis. Deep skin scrapings collect material from within the hair follicle; capillary bleeding indicates that the sampling was deep enough. Skin scrapings are used primarily to determine the presence or absence of mites. ...

    Examination of urine

    Published On: August 14, 2018 | Pages: 051 - 058

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Urinalysis usually is performed as a screening technique for acquiring a large amount of information about several body systems. It is studying the kidneys related to the detection of abnormal component in urine that may be of renal origins and relation of urine concentration ability to kidney function. Analysis of urine is conducted through collection of samples. Urine is normally yellow in all domestic animals. The yellow color is derived from bilirubin excreted into the intestine and reabsorbed into the portal circulation as urobilinogen [1]. ...

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    The body condition of a livestock is generally assessed by visual observation. The references to an animal being too thin, in good flesh, or obese all relate to the animal’s weight. Therefore, the weight of an animal can be used as a measurement tool to determine its well-being, or the presence of problems which may threaten the health of the horse. The weight of small animalsand poultry may be carried out by balance by automatic balance machine several methods can be used to determine the body weight of livestock in an approximate scale. ...

    Author(s): Abdisa Tagesu*
    Physical examination is the methods of examination by means of applying general inspection, palpation, percussion and auscultation of animals to detect clinical signs of patient animals. General inspection is done some distance away from the animal; sometimes go round the animal or herd/flock, in order to get the general impression about the case1. Attention should be compensated to the following items: behavior, appetite, defecation, urination, pasture, gait, body condition, body conformation, and lesions on outer surface of the body. ...
