Veterinary treatments can help keep companion, zoo, and sport animals happy, healthy, and comfortable while extending their lives. These treatments may be administered at regular appointments, in response to a particular issue, or during an emergency situation. Understanding the wide range of veterinary treatments available for your animal can help you maintain its wellbeing and determine when a trip to the vet’s office may be appropriate. Our facilities include a walk-in clinic where animals can receive treatments immediately or they go through to our hospital surgery where they receive more serious treatment. Our vets perform surgeries such as tendon suturing and skin graphing.
Just as in human medicine, there are many techniques veterinarians can use to improve an animal’s health. Your practitioner will diagnose your animal’s condition and recommend a course of treatment based on your pet’s symptoms, age, medical record, species, behavior, and preferences. Your primary veterinarian can perform certain treatments, but in more complicated circumstances, your animal may need to be referred to a veterinary specialist with more extensive knowledge and experience.
When your pet needs surgery, it’s important to know that the veterinary surgeons at Panjnad Veterinary Clinic are among the most experienced and respected specialists in the region. In fact, we are entirely focused on surgery and rehabilitation, which makes us very good at what we do. It’s a level of dedicated expertise that no other practice in this area offers. That’s why so many pet owners and referring veterinarians – including the animal care specialists trust on our Services. We provide veterinary care to all animals. The majority of our patients are donkeys and horses. Many of them have been left for some time before their owner has sought our help or they have tried remedies at home which often fail
Artificial insemination (AI) is widely used by veterinarians and veterinary specialists in most domestic as well as wild animal species. Reasons for use of AI instead of natural matings are diverse and different for individual species. As in humans, AI can be used as a tool to increase conception rate in animals that have fertility problems. This is usually performed in companion animals, like horses and dogs, where individuals are important as breeding animals. In these cases, breeding animals are mostly chosen for performance and pedigree instead of breeding soundness. Breeders go through a lot of effort to produce offspring of a specific female or male animal irrespective of potential reproductive problems. In production animals, AI is a way to increase reproductive efficiency and production.
AI has proven to be a very effective reproductive technology that selectively increases genetic gain through increased selection pressure on males. In Holstein cattle, for example, AI supported selection for the milk production trait and within 40 years milk production has nearly doubled. Farm animals, males as well as females, are usually chosen for breeding programs based on breeding soundness examinations (BSEs).
Artificial insemination (AI) is a method of breeding cattle using frozen straws of semen. In order for the process to be successful it must be done at the proper time of a cow’s heat cycle. In the past this required observing cows for heat in order to breed at the appropriate time. However, the most common method of AI today uses a synchronization protocol to bring the majority of the herd into heat at the same time so they can be bred using timed AI. Improvements in synchronization techniques has made artificial insemination a much more feasible option for today’s cattle producers.
The bulls available for use in artificial insemination are some of the very best bulls in their breed. Artificial insemination allows you to bring these genetics into your own herd at a very affordable cost. Perhaps the biggest benefit of AI is many of the sires we use have several thousand calves already born. This means we have a much better idea of how future offspring will perform. With artificial insemination, you can reduce calving difficulty, wean bigger calves, have better carcass traits, and ultimately have replacement heifers that will be more productive in your herd.
Animals receive vaccines for the same reason that humans do: to prevent diseases. Vaccinating animals reduces animal suffering, reduces the transmission of microorganisms in the animal population, and is often more affordable than paying for the treatment of sick animals. Pets receive vaccines for infectious diseases such as rabies, parvovirus, distemper, and hepatitis.
Livestock animals like turkeys, chickens, cattle and pigs are vaccinated to protect against diseases like rotavirus, E. coli, pinkeye, and brucellosis. Vaccinations keep individual animals, flocks and herds, and people healthy.
Animal vaccines are part of a category of animal medicines known as veterinary biologics, which work primarily by stimulating an animal’s immune system to prevent or treat diseases.
