Dogs and Cats

Heart disease in dogs and cats are now beginning to be found in the veterinary practice. But practitioners are still constrained by science, medicine, and tools that hard to come by in Indonesia.

This is expressed by small animal practitioners DVM Amir Mahmud told Reuters on Sunday (03/04/2012). Drh Amir is following the National Conference of the Association of Small Animal Veterinary Practitioner Indonesia (National Conference ADHPHKI) and Small Animal Veterinary Scientific Conference, which took place from Friday (02/03/2012) in Surabaya, East Java.

Amir Mahmud DVM is the author of the Dogs Congestive Heart Failure (Congestive Heart Failure in Dogs). This book is the only book of heart disease in dogs the rise in Indonesia.

According to Amir DVM, in a scientific conference on Saturday (03.03.2012), came to light that the micro-surgery, endoscopy, ekhokardiografi, and the science of heart disease in dogs and cats are now growing in Indonesia.

Four things today is still not popular among veterinary practitioners Indonesia. However, slowly but surely the vanguard of progress veterinary field is starting to move and introduce new things in Indonesia. It was developed several years ago in developed countries like Japan and South Korea.

In addition to high technology-related with the use of advanced tools, the problem of high costs also became an obstacle for veterinary practitioners and the general public veterinary services users in Indonesia. "How not vet veterinary practice is generally the practice to be self-financed, so that the veterinarian who will complete practice facility with advanced tools with the ability to buy their own pockets," said Amir DVM, who practices medicine in Cibubur it.

In addition to the heart of the issue, Chairman of the Executive Board of the Veterinary Association of Indonesia (PDHI) Mandy DVM munas Bagja in the event revealed that countries around the world have agreed to ban the use of poison stricnin for animals, eg wild dog culling program in order to catch the dog as an animal rabies. However, the practice still exists and use stricnin conducted in several regions in Indonesia.

"The ban is related to the implementation of animal welfare (animal welfare). Use stricnin condemned around the world," said Mandy DVM.

For the veterinary profession, including malpractice stricnin use, so it is included in the veterinary profession ethics violations. Professional ethics for the veterinary profession is currently a demand which will inevitably have to be met by the profession, not least to the vet in Indonesia.

Unfortunately, the ethics of the profession is still not well understood by veterinarians, holders of power, and the people of Indonesia in general. This is one of the challenges of veterinary organizations in managing PDHI members.
