Major Anthropogenic Causes For And Outcomes Of Wild Animal Presentation To A Wildlife Clinic In East Tennessee, Usa 2000-2001, Ashley N. Schenk, Marcy J. Souza

Marcy J Souza

To determine the reasons for presentation and outcome of wildlife cases in East Tennessee, a retrospective analysis was performed using 14,303 records from cases presented to the wildlife clinic of the University of Tennessee Veterinary Teaching Hospital between 2000 and 2011. The cases were first categorized into amphibian/non-avian reptile, mammal, or avian and then classified into groups based on the primary admitting/presenting sign. There are a variety of reasons animals were presented to the clinic, and some were directly or indirectly anthropogenic in origin, including cat related, dog related, hit by automobile, and other human encounters leading ...

Grass-Finishing High Value Beef: A Pilot Project In Northern United States, Pete Lammers, Suzanne T. Millman, Reneé Dewell, Dallas L. Maxwell, Mark S. Honeyman

Animal Industry Report

This project examined the feasibility of producing USDA Choice beef—without grain-based finishing—through genetic selection and pasture management. Purebred Angus heifers with high-marbling potential and small/medium frame size were born spring 2011. Heifers were allotted to either pasture (grass-finishing) or feedlot (grain-fed) treatments based on liveweight and intramuscular fat content. When reaching market weight (±1,000 lb) heifers were harvested and carcass data was collected. Feedlot cattle were marketed on August 27, 2012. The grass-finished cattle were marketed on November 1, 2012. Starting and end weights were similar for both treatments but feedlot cattle reached market weight 50 ...

The Impact Of Translactational Delivered Meloxicam Analgesia On Biomarkers Of Pain And Distress After Piglet Processing, Jessica L. Bates, Locke A. Karriker, Matthew L. Stock, Kelly M. Pertzborn, Luke G. Baldwin, Johann F. Coetzee

Animal Industry Report

Oral meloxicam was administered to sows post-farrowing to investigate a novel route of providing analgesia to processed piglets via translactational drug transfer. Physiologic indicators of piglet pain were analyzed to determine the effects on pain control. An effective meloxicam dosage was reached in 4/5 sow litters with no adverse clinical effects. Both piglet cortisol and cranial skin temperature measured by infrared thermography indicated significant differences in pain biomarkers between treatment groups. This study demonstrates the successful transfer of meloxicam in sow’s milk and description of physiologic pain indicators after processing. It provides the foundation for future research into ...


Clinical Study To Assess The Level Of Consciousness/General Anesthesia Following The Administration Of High Doses Of Xylazine Hydrochloride In Cattle, Reneé Dewell, Luciana Bergamasco, Christopher K. Kelly, Jan K. Shearer, Grant A. Dewell 2014 Iowa State University

Clinical Study To Assess The Level Of Consciousness/General Anesthesia Following The Administration Of High Doses Of Xylazine Hydrochloride In Cattle, Reneé Dewell, Luciana Bergamasco, Christopher K. Kelly, Jan K. Shearer, Grant A. Dewell

Animal Industry Report

Achieving anesthesia without DEA controlled drugs prior to administration of IV potassium chloride (KCl) is a limiting factor for humane euthanasia. An overdose of xylazine hydrochloride (XH) is thought by some to induce unconsciousness and is commonly administered prior to IV KCl injection. This study’s purpose was to determine the level of unconsciousness achieved from an overdose of XH in cattle.


Impact Of Oral Meloxicam On Circulating Physiological Biomarkers Of Stress And Inflammation In Beef Steers After Long Distance Transportation, Nicholas K. Van Engen, Matthew L.

Impact Of Oral Meloxicam On Circulating Physiological Biomarkers Of Stress And Inflammation In Beef Steers After Long Distance Transportation, Nicholas K. Van Engen, Matthew L. Stock, Terry Engelken, Rhonda Vann, Larry W. Wulf, Locke A. Karriker, Jeff Lakritz, Walter H. Hsu, Barry Bradford, Abigail Carpenter, Darrel Busby, Chong Wang, Johann F. Coetzee

Animal Industry Report

We hypothesized that meloxicam administration to beef steers before shipping may be effective at reducing the impact of transportation on stress biomarkers. Circulating physiological biomarkers of stress were analyzed in a transportation trial between a meloxicam treatment group and a placebo treatment group. There were significant differences in stress biomarkers between treatment groups following transport. This suggests that there may be practical benefits for the use of long-acting non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), specifically meloxicam, to mitigate the negative effect of transport on cattle physiology.
