Abstract:

With the progress of the technology every day in the field of medicine, new and successful results can be obtained both
in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, as well as in treatment and prognosis. A flight simulator is inspired by
second-generation computer-assisted external fixators, which is described as Spatial Fixators. The complex deformities of the
precision of success of correction have been evaluated according to the revolution in the field of orthopedics and have been
rapidly evaluated in the nature of first generation external fixators. The revolutionary nature of spatial fixators can be used in
veterinary platform deformities, clinically complex approaches for patients routinely run for disposal. The aim of this study is
to examine and share the applicability of computer-assisted spatial fixators on animals, the advantages and / or disadvantages
considered during implementation, the adequacy and success of eliminating deformations, and the proposed new techniques,
results to be presented at the international platform. Multiple limb radiographs were taken from the patients and correction
plans were made by evaluating the deformities. All measurements were uploaded to the Click2Correct software program.
This data has been adapted to be used in operation with Radiographic Navigation Software. All analyses were planned and
patients were selected. Immediately postoperative radiograms were uploaded to the software system and a correction regime
was created. After the correction was completed, mechanical fixators were removed. Although there is no clinical study yet in
the literature, it has been concluded that spatial fixators can even fix complex antebrachial deformities. In dogs, especially in
complexes with antebrachial deformities, the ability to perform six-axis correction will be a great advantage. More extensive
work on the subject can be made.

Abstract:

Chickens constitute about 90.55% of the poultry population and are, by far, the most important poultry species in all parts
of the world compared to other poultry species such as muscovy ducks, mallard ducks, pigeons, guinea fowl, geese, quail
and turkeys. The term “poultry” is therefore often used synonymously for chickens. Chickens are found everywhere around the
world; every culture knows them and how to husband them. Over the last decade, poultry population has grown spectacularly
throughout the world: 23% in developed and 76% in developing countries, respectively. The term “family poultry” used to
describe the full variety of small-scale poultry production systems that are found in rural, urban and peri-urban areas of
developing countries. It is used to describe poultry production that is practised by individual families as a means of obtaining
food security, income and gainful employment. Being called ‘Family poultry’, ‘Small-scale poultry’, ‘Small-holder poultry’,
‘Scavenging poultry’, or “Village poultry” the different systems of poultry rearing with various levels of intensification are now
adopted by poor, marginal as well as richer members of the society with intensification according to their economical status
and requirements. Small-scale poultry production can also be considered as less intensive or ‘alternative system’. There are
four broad well recognized small-scale poultry production systems. They are (1) Free-range extensive system, (2) Backyard
extensive system, (3) Semi-scavenging system, and (4) Small-scale intensive system. Characteristics of these systems met 14
criteria. Small-scale poultry production is everywhere in developing countries and has economic and social significance in the
rural areas. Hence, it can be used as a tool in the eradication of poverty, as a means of economic empowerment, as a way of
ensuring food security for rural families, as a vehicle for demonstrating the appropriate application of science and technology
to solving prob¬lems, and as a unique opportunity for technical cooperation among developing countries. In conclusion,
increased production of poultry, both commercial and small-scale production, is a vital contribution to food security at both
the household and community levels in many countries. Small-scale family poultry is thus a valuable asset to the local human
population in many countries located in the tropical and sub-tropical environments.

Patchima Sithisarn working as a lecturer at Kasetsart University. She has done her doctor of philosphy, Medical Virology at Johann Wolfgang Goethe - Universitat Frankfurt. Her research interests are Zoonosis, Avian influenza. She has participated in various international conferences.

Abstract:

Current demand of poultry meat consumption increases intensely worldwide. In the past decades, poultry farming has changed drastically in formats and the industry has grown significantly. Thailand shares the world’s top rank stakes of poultry meat production both in domestic consumptions and in exports. Safety and quality of food from animals is the grand desire for veterinary profession. Animal welfare protocol becomes a significant goal among animal production industries as it proves the high standard of animal lives, proper handlings and the efficiency of the veterinary professions involved. Huge loads of work paradigm is on trials for veterinary public health concerning the welfare evaluation system in order to express the actual dynamics of events occurred to
animals from farm to slaughterhouse particularly in the country with a variety of farming system and managements. The duck welfare evaluation protocol related to post-mortem inspection practice was developed here for Thai practice by the harmonization of the international standards and integrated it with the specified post-mortem inspection evaluation system. The five-freedom rules were corresponding with the relevant post-mortem evaluation practice and the post mortem-welfare indicated pattern was analysed and primarily established.

Biography:

Imen Larbi earned her DVM from the Veterinary School of Tunis, and then MS. She completed a PhD degree in Virology from the Faculty of Sciences Tunis. Her research interest includes animal virology, poultry infectious pathogens and their control and epidemiological studies of avian influenza disease. She is involved in the national surveillance of avian influenza research programs at the Institute Pasteur of Tunis.

Abstract:

The avian influenza virus is the causative agent of several severe influenza pandemics. In Tunisia in 2009, H9N2 strain type A has affected the industrial poultry farms. The samples are collected between 2014, 2015 and 2016 from industrial poultry farms and migratory birds. 500 samples were analyzed, 16 samples were positive by the ELISA-Ag. The samples retained for virological analysis and identified as H9N2 by conventional RT-PCR and real-time (RRT-PCR). Based on the nucleotide sequences of hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA), the phylogenetic study showed that our isolates belong to the G1 sublineage. The cleavage site of their hemagglutinin showed two new motifs 332PSRSSR / GLF341, 332PSKSSR / GLF341, indicating the low pathogenic nature. The isolated strains during this work from migratory birds (Phoenicopterus roseus) and industrial breeding are similar to the Libyan strain about haemagglutinin and close to the Middle East for the neuraminidase. The substitution A333S and R336K, the two newly isolated avian influenza virus cleavage sites possess a pattern different from that observed in the other isolated Tunisian strains in 2010 and 2011, possessing the 332PARSSR/ GLF341 motif. A study in China showed that the A333S substitution increases the virulence of H9N2 strains in mice and chickens, which in turn are accentuated following the deletion induced in the neuraminidase stem. Examination of the hemagglutinin protein sequences shows that strains isolated have in common 3 sites of potential glycosylation which have not been described for strains isolated in previous years: 105NGT107, 298NST300 and 305NIS307. The amino acid sequence of hemagglutinin revealed the presence of Q234L substitution enabling the avian influenza strains to bind to α 2-6 receptors of human cells. The sequencing of the complete genome of the H9N2 influenza viruses is therefore will be done to better predict transmissions.The way in which the disease has been introduced in the country is still not understood and several studies are currently under way.

Selvinaz Yakan is an expert in Veterinary Surgery. She has completed her PhD at Kafkas University, and now she is working as Associate Professor at Agrı Ibrahim Cecen University Eleskirt Celal Oruc School of Animal Production, Animal Health Department, Agrı, Turkey. She focuses on pain, veterinary ophthalmology, wound healing, veterinary
anaesthesia and analgesia.

Abstract:

The aim of this study is to present the effects on wound healing of Hypericum perforatum and polihexanide use in tissue loss wounds infected with Staphylococcuc aureus. The research was carried out on 48 adult female Wistar albino rats. Under general anaesthesia, wounds were created with 1 cm skin incission on the back of all rats. After 24 hours, the injection was made to wound with Staphylococcuc aureus suspension. After 48 hours, wound cultures were obtained for each rats. At Çukurova University Hospital, Department of Microbiology, inoculation was performed instead of appropriate fattening. This procedure was repeated every 48 hours until culture results are obtained in reproduction. As soon as reproduction was detected in cultures, treatment began. Rats were randomly separated in to 4 main groups each group consisted of 12 animals. Control group (burned but no topical agent), in the Hypericum perforatum oil groups, 1 mL of Hypericum perforatum oil was administered via syringe to the wound, in the polihexanide groups, 1 mL of polihexanid was administered via syringe to the wound, in the Hypericum perforatum oil and polihexanid groups in which both Hypericum perforatum and polihexanide were applied a total of 1 mL was administered via syringe to the wound. The changes in the diameter of the wounds and the clinical course were evaluated daily. Tissue samples were taken by punch biopsy under anaesthesia at the 7th and 14th day and histopathological evaluations were obtained. This study showed that both Hypericum perforatum and polihexanid are effective in treatment of tissue loss wounds infected with Staphylococcuc aureus in rats.

Abstract:

Despite the gains that have been recorded in agricultural practices especially in the developed countries as a result of technological advancement; Africa has remained a continent marked by poverty and food shortages even though majority of the African people are farmers. One important relationship between animal husbandry and crop production is that the former produces manure (organic fertilizer) through animal droppings or wastes which help to fertilize the soil for the latter. This is preferable to chemical fertilizer which has been shown to have toxic effects on the soil, crops and to some extend on the consumers (animals and humans).In addition, the natural taste of the crops is sometimes lost. It is on record that the cheapest and easy to procure animals that most African people keep domestically are the monogastrics (Pig, Poultry and Rabbit) hence no matter how poor a family is it is very common to keep at least one or two of these three monogastric types.

Abstract:

Arterial thromboembolism (ATE) in cats is mostly a complication of concurrent myocardial disease and frequently results with euthanasia. From distal level of thrombus arterial circulation breaks down because of obstruction and vasoconstriction of the collateral blood supply. Blood stasis in left atrium and endothelial dysfunction activates platelets and results as formation of thrombus. Even new antithrombotic drugs are developed for humans there is no developmental study from pharmaceutical companies for feline species. In this case report 2 cats suffering from ATE was observed until the day of death.  Clinical examination, ultrasonography, electrocardiography and echocardiography were performed. For anticoagulant therapy, heparin was administered to one of the patients and enoxaparin sodium (low-molecular weight heparins) was administered to the other. Similar and different clinical results between the two cases were evaluated.

Biography:

Dissaya Srinutiyakorn has completed her Bachelor's degree in Biology (First-Class Honors with Gold Medal Award) from Chulalongkorn University, Thailiand. She got a scholarship in Science and Technology named “DPST” from the Government of Thailand since 2008. She received Young Scientist Award from the 8th FAOPS Congress and she went to Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology for 3 months to conduct the research in 2014. She is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in the field of Animal Reproduction at Chulalongkorn University. She is interested in equine reproduction with the aim of improving equine sperm quality during cryopreservation.

Abstract:

In equine breeding program, subfertility of mares after insemination with frozen-thawed semen remains a major problem. Semen cryopreservation is the best method to preserve semen with additional benefit to increase remotely genetic distribution. However, sperm are exposed to extreme changes in temperature and extracellular fluid compositions during cryopreservation which potentially cause the osmotic stress and membrane instability leading to the damage of sperm. Trehalose, a disaccharide sugar, protects plasma membrane during dehydration and has been shown as an outstanding cryoprotective capability. Therefore, we aimed at investigating the osmotic tolerance limits of equine sperm, the protective effects of trehalose on osmotic tolerance and the quality of equine sperm before and after freezing and thawing. Equine ejaculated semen (n=14) was collected from six stallions. Results showed the average of motility and plasma membrane integrity of equine sperm were significantly lower in hypo- (150 mOsm/kg) and hyperosmolarity
(450, 600 and 750 mOsm/kg) when compared to iso-osmolarity (300 mOsm/kg). Moreover, these parameters were worsen when osmolarities were increased. This data indicated that equine sperm had limited osmotic tolerance. Pre-incubation of sperm with 100 mM trehalose improved sperm motility, viability and membrane integrity when exposed to aniosmotic conditoins (450, 600 and 750 mOsm/kg) (P<0.05). These results, therefore, demonstrated that trehalose enhanced osmotic tolerance of equine sperm. In addition, supplementation of trehalose into semen extender also increased sperm qualities (sperm motility, viability and membrane integrity) after cooling and cryopreservation when compared with control (no trehalose) (P<0.05).

Abstract:

In the last decades adverse food reactions were considerably increased in dogs and cats. We reported the onset of food intolerances symptoms, including otitis, diarrhea, generalized anxiety, and dermatitis, in a cohort of 8 dogs consuming commercial diets. The aim of this preliminary study is to possibly provide new insights in the idiopathic food intolerances with a particular focus on the
role of or their metabolites as possible triggering factors. All dogs were supplemented with an organic chicken-based diet for 15 days. Blood biochemical parameters, kibbles composition, oxytetracycline (OTC) serum concentration were performed before and after 15 days of organic chicken-based diet supplementation. We hypothesize that a chronic intake of contaminated food, enhanced also by the presence of nanoparticles, might foster pharmacologic or idiopathic food intolerances. Biochemical analyses indicated a significant increase in the alkaline phosphatase, from 41 to 52.5 U/L, after 15 days (**p<0.01), while a significant decrease in Gammaglutamyl transferase and urea, from 9.37 to 6.25 U/L and from 32.13±8.72 to 22.13±7.8 mg/dL, respectively, was observed (*p<0.05).A significant decrease in mean OTC serum concentration was also observed from 0.22 to 0.02 μg/mL (**p<0.01). We provided clinical evidence of the presence of symptoms, which may occur in dogs fed on commercially available pet food diets. Nevertheless we cannot rule out the possible combined pro-inflammatory activity exerted by nanoparticles, whose presence is almost unavoidable during the overall production process.
