The journal focuses on research and development in the field of veterinary medicine and surgery covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild.
Assessment of chocolate toxicity is often carried out by veterinarians in pet clinics. The more reliable method used for this assessment is described here. The calculations involved in the assessment are complex, confusing, time consuming and not easily reproducible. Spreadsheet is a computer application in which data are arranged in rows and columns of a grid and can be manipulated and used in calculations. In today’s era of smart phones, tablet PCs and net books, where a spreadsheet program in the form of Microsoft Excel was readily accessible by most veterinarians, it should be possible to adapt the various laborious steps involved in the said method to a spreadsheet program by writing simple logical codes in the spreadsheets to do the calculations in a simple, clear, faster, reproducible, accurate and user‑friendly manner. This article describes a spreadsheet program (CHOCToxi Calc) to calculate the chocolate toxicity....
Cows have a minimum requirement for protein and energy to maintain normal body functions known as their ‘maintenance’ requirement which is approximately 2% of their body weight. Maximising dry matter intake provides more nutrients to rumen microbes, which in turn provide more nutrients to the cow for milk production and composition, growth, reproduction and body condition. DMI (dry matter intake) represents the milk yield for a cow and the entire dairy industry. In problem herds where intake is less or inadequate DMI is predominant, it accounts for tremendous economic loss. Traditionally, studies which placed a monetary value on the effect of DMI intake have calculated the costs at the herd level by using conventional method which is a basically a complex and time consuming. In today's era of Smart phones, tablet PCs and Notebooks where a spreadsheet program in the form of Excel is readily accessible by most veterinarians, it should be possible to adapt the various laborious steps involved in the said method to a spreadsheet program. The objective of this study was to calculate the DMI in the milking herd. This model would provide a more informed decision making process in management for maximal economic profitability. We made modifications to an existing conventional method and simulated the conventional model....
