Beyond the ER...

By Erika Wierman, DVM on Wed, Jul 01, 2020 @ 01:30 PM

I’ve been thinking a bit lately about a conversation I have frequently with my colleagues. It’s one that questions the need for and the appropriateness of ultrasound use in a general companion animal practice. I repeatedly hear veterinarians bemoaning the time required to learn to perform ultrasound, the expense of implementing it, and the potential liability in interpreting it. They often tell me that they have a “wonderful traveling radiologist/internist” who comes in at a regular interval to conduct ultrasound exams on their accumulated cases.

Fetal Aging

By Erika Wierman, DVM on Mon, Jun 01, 2020 @ 11:21 AM

Fetal aging via ultrasound exam is another big benefit of imaging over traditional palpation in bovine reproduction, as being able to visually assess the pregnancy improves accuracy significantly. Aging is employed in many situations; it can be done to delineate AI from bull-bred pregnancies, to separate animals into calving groups and monitor for dystocias, and to maximize nutritional efficiency throughout the stages of pregnancy, to name a few. While aging via ultrasound is traditionally done prior to 120 days of gestation, we are able to obtain measurements later than ever with the advent of deeper-penetrating, wider field-of-view transducers.

Established in 1995, Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary is located in the beautiful Western Area Peninsula Forest Reserve, close to Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. The sanctuary covers 100 acres of important rainforest and watershed.

Tacugama was established in 1995 to home and rehabilitate confiscated, orphaned and abandoned chimps. It is illegal in Sierra Leone to hunt, capture, kill or keep chimpanzees—the sanctuary now takes care of over 90 chimps. Much work is also undertaken towards stopping the illegal trade of this endangered species and supporting the protection and conservation of chimpanzees in the wild through education, communication and legal enforcement.
