Pathoanatomical autopsy (gr. autopsy, auton — it-yourself, opsis — look, lat, section, sectire— less, reveal) is a comprehensive study of a fallen or dead animal for the purpose of verifying the accuracy of in vivo diagnosis, establishment of morphological changes in organs and causes his death.
In our country the state veterinary service in accordance with Soviet and veterinary legislation is science-based comprehensive system of preventive measures for development of livestock, warning the emergence and spread of animal diseases, many of which are dangerous for humans. When disease occurrence is crucial to the timely and accurate diagnosis on which to base targeted treatment and preventive measures for health improvement of animals. Post-mortem autopsy of the fallen or slaughtered animals is one of methods of diagnostics of infectious, parasitic and noncontagious illnesses of animals. Unopened corpses of animals that died of anthrax, glanders, and some other anthropozoonotic diseases. To exclude or confirm these diseases, conduct laboratory studies. When establishing anthropozoonotic be destroyed along with the skin.
The value of pathological diagnosis has become even more relevant with the enlargement, specialization and mechanization of livestock farms, so that timely diagnosis helps prevent large economic losses.
In medical practice post-mortem examination held by doctors — pathologists (protectora), constituents of special service. Veterinary protection of livestock carry out veterinary doctors and medical assistants, who perform all veterinary activities, including sectional work.

Many pet owners mistakenly believe that if their pet never goes outside, fleas are not afraid of him. Unfortunately, it is not so. Let’s first examine what are fleas and what are the ways of infection.
Fleas are of two types – “continuous”, that is, those that remain on the animal and those who attack, bite, drink blood and after go back to his habitat. The latter is known as “grass fleas”, thus they can live not only in grass but also in the animal litter, and even in a secluded corner under the baseboard. Their main feature is a temporary stay on the animal.
Grass fleas are attacking all indiscriminately – and to dogs and cats, and rabbits, and on human beings, while permanent fleas often (but not always!) are selective, being largely species-specific (cat fleas, dog fleas, fleas rabbits, etc.)
Persistent fleas, as a rule, greatly inferior in jumping ability as its “herbal” relatives, and their infection occurs mainly through contact with sick animals. At the same time, to herbal pick up fleas almost anywhere, and even if the animal is not facing the street, it is still at risk, as fleas can be brought into the home on shoes and clothing.
What are the dangers of fleas and what are the symptoms?
Fleas can become infected animal of any age and breed. While infecting the animal concerned, itches,bites. When combing hair, you can see the fleas and their excrement, as well as the so-called “flea house”. Continue reading
Many people quite sincerely believe that pet is the best treatment at home — at home, which, as is well known, too bad help. In some cases this makes sense, but. There are plenty of “contraindications” against home therapy. From the point of view of psychology, the animals easier to come into contact with the doctor in the absence of their owners — the people to whom they are strongly tied. Most Pets feel the excitement of those who love them, and start to worry themselves. Treatment in the veterinary clinic eliminates negative psychological factor.
From an economic position, it is much cheaper to leave your pet in the hospital than several times a day to call the vet to monitor his condition. To carry sick animal two or three times a day for medical procedures (injections, multiple diagnostic studies, etc.) is also quite expensive and for the money, and time.
Finally, a veterinary hospital in Moscow allows us to provide better treatment due to the ongoing monitoring of pet. It is possible that in the clinic the doctor will be able to identify additional symptoms that are not seen by the owner, and in time to adjust the treatment.
In some cases, you may need to bring the animal to the vet?
Only your vet can determine whether it is necessary to stationarities cats and dogs. But there are situations when without it just will not do. These include cases where the animal is required:
permanent treatment involving the placement of droppers or use of multiple therapeutic actions; Continue reading
