Veterinary Summit 2016

Track 1: Veterinary

Veterinary research includes studies on prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and on the basic biology and welfare of animals. It transcends species boundaries to include the study of spontaneous and experimental models of both human and animal disease and research at important human-animal interfaces, such as food safety, wildlife and ecosystem health, zoonotic diseases, and public policy. Veterinary research serves as the interface of basic science and animal and human health that is critical to the advancement of our understanding of and response to impending risks and to the exploitation of disciplinary advances in the pursuit of One Medicine. The urgent need to provide adequate resources for investigators, training programs, and facilities involved in veterinary research must be met to seize the opportunities to improve the well-being of humans and animals and to minimize risks to their health.

Track 2: Poultry Science

Poultry is a term used for any kind of domesticated bird, captive-raised for its utility, and traditionally the word has been used to refer to wildfowl and waterfowl "Poultry" can be defined as domestic fowls, including chickens, turkeys, geese and ducks, raised for the production of meat or eggs and the word is also used for the flesh of these birds used as food. Worldwide, more chickens are kept than any other type of poultry, with over 50 billion birds being raised each year as a source of meat and eggs. Profitability of production depends very much on the price of feed, which has been rising. High feed costs could limit further development of poultry production. Poultry is the second most widely eaten type of meat in the world, accounting for about 30% of total meat production worldwide compared to pork at 38%. Sixteen billion birds are raised annually for consumption, more than half of these in industrialized, factory-like production units. Global broiler meat production rose to 84.6 million tons in 2013. The largest producers were the United States (20%), China (16.6%), Brazil (15.1%) and the European Union (11.3%).Poultry meat and eggs provide nutritionally beneficial food containing protein of high quality. A 2011 study by the Translational Genomics Research Institute showed that 47% of the meat and poultry sold in United States grocery stores was contaminated with Staphylococcus aureusSalmonella and Campylobacter. Poultry Products may become contaminated by these bacteria during handling, processing, marketing, or storage, resulting in food-borne illness if the product is improperly cooked or handled.

Track 3: Veterinary Economics

The Veterinary Services industry is labor intensive. In 2015, wage costs are comprised of 36.6% of industry revenue, compared with depreciation costs accounting for 2.3%. For every dollar spent on wages, the industry incurs an estimated $0.06 in capital costs. All areas of operation of an animal hospital require a significant input of knowledge and skill. There is a high level of hands-on care required in diagnosing and treating animals. Veterinarians are well educated and possess a high level of skill, which results in elevated wage costs. Support is required in the areas of registering the animal on arrival at the hospital and receiving payments as well as taking samples, exercising, feeding, grooming and cleaning animals.

Track 4: Animal Nutrition & Physiology

The Global veterinary healthcare market, estimated at $24.8 Billion in 2014, is set to reach $34.39 Billion by 2019, with a CAGR of 7.86% over the forecast period. Veterinary healthcare market is gaining importance as a result of manufacturers focus on production of products with specialized formulations and specialized manufacturing processes. In United States alone, Americans spent more than $53 billion on food, pet supplies, over-the-counter and prescription medications, veterinary care, live animal purchases, dietary supplements and other pet-related services. Increased love for the pets leading to increased ownership, more people awareness for animal health, and far less requirements for animal health drugs approval are the major driving factors for the market. Another factor that drives the market is continuous innovations and technological advances in development of animal health drugs. However, increased competition for cultivated land and scarcity of arable land are the major restraints for the market growth. The new type of diseases in animals and their subsequent transfer to humans via animal feed quality consumption and companionship are escalating the veterinary healthcare industry globally. The strategic decisions in research and development of manufacturers are expected to positively impact global veterinary healthcare market.

Track 5: Veterinary Biochemistry

Biochemistry is closely related to molecular biology, the study of the molecular mechanisms by which genetic information encoded in DNA is able to result in the processes of life. Depending on the exact definition of the terms used, molecular biology can be thought of as a branch of biochemistry, or biochemistry as a tool with which to investigate and study molecular biology. Biochemistry is one of the few basic sciences where animal and plant kingdoms meet. In veterinary education and research, biochemistry is highly relevant to the metabolism and functions of animals in health and disease, and forms the basis for an intelligent understanding of major aspects of veterinary science and animal husbandry. Hence the need for adequate recognition of the place of biochemistry in veterinary education cannot be over emphasized. It is only the possession of a fairly high level of knowledge of biochemistry that will enable one to study, or to pursue a line of research, intelligently in applied sciences such as animal nutrition, dairy science, pharmacology, animal physiology, animal genetics, clinical pathology, medicine and so on. In the absence of grounding in biochemistry, it is difficult to obtain an insight into these subject areas.

Track 6: Dairy Technology

The global dairy herd management market was valued at $823.65 million in 2013 and is expected to reach $1,511.91 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 12.92% between 2013 and 2018. Dairy cattle management products are rapidly gaining widespread acceptance in the dairy industry primarily due to the increased demand for dairy products. Furthermore, use of these automated herd management techniques offers substantial cost advantages over traditional techniques. Dairy herd management products serve to improve production efficiency, lower labor costs, and help in planning and managing milking, feeding, vaccination, and insemination schedules for large herds.

Track 7: Veterinary Epidemiology

Veterinary epidemiology deals with the investigation of diseases, productivity and animal welfare in populations. It is used to describe the frequency of disease occurrence and how disease, productivity and welfare are affected by the interaction of different factors or determinants. This information is then used to manipulate such determinants in order to reduce the frequency of disease occurrence. Veterinary epidemiology is a holistic approach aimed at coordinating the use of different scientific disciplines and techniques during an investigation of disease or impaired productivity or welfare. One of its essential foundations is the collection of data, which then has to be analyzed using qualitative or quantitative approaches in order to formulate causal hypotheses. As part of the quantitative approach to epidemiological analysis, epidemiological investigations involving field studies or surveys are being conducted and models of epidemiological problems can be developed. The ultimate goal is to control a disease problem, reduce productivity losses and improve animal welfare.

Track 8: Animal breeding

Animal breeding is a branch of animal science that addresses the evaluation of the genetic value of livestock. Selecting for breeding animals with superior EBV in growth rate, egg, meat, milk, or wool production, or with other desirable traits has revolutionized livestock production throughout the world. It is the management and care of farm animals by humans for profit, in which genetic qualities and behavior, considered to be advantageous to humans, are further developed. The term can refer to the practice of selectively breeding and raising livestock to promote desirable traits in animals for utility, sport, pleasure, or research. Breeding techniques such as artificial insemination and embryo transfer are frequently used today, not only as methods to guarantee that females breed regularly but also to help improve herd genetics. On the one hand, this improves the ability of the animals to convert feed to meat, milk, or fiber more efficiently, and improve the quality of the final product. On the other, it decreases genetic diversity, increasing the severity of certain disease outbreaks among other risks.

Track 9: Ornithology

Ornithology is a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds. Several aspects of ornithology differ from related disciplines, due partly to the high visibility and the aesthetic appeal of birds. Most marked among these is the extent of studies undertaken by amateurs working within the parameters of strict scientific methodology. The science of ornithology has a long history and studies on birds have helped develop several key concepts in evolution, behavior and ecology such as the definition of species, the process of speciation, instinct, learning, ecological niches, guilds, island biogeography, phylogeography and conservation. While early ornithology was principally concerned with descriptions and distributions of species, ornithologists today seek answers to very specific questions, often using birds as models to test hypotheses or predictions based on theories.

Track 10: Veterinary Surgery & Radiology

Veterinary surgery is surgery performed on animals by veterinarians, which are categorized into three broad categories: orthopedics (bones, joints, muscles), soft tissue surgery (skin, body cavities, cardiovascular system, GI/urogenital/respiratory tracts), and neurosurgery. Advanced surgical procedures such as joint replacement (total hip, knee and elbow replacement), fracture repair, stabilization of cranial cruciate ligament deficiency, oncologic (cancer) surgery, herniated disc treatment, complicated gastrointestinal or urogenital procedures, kidney transplant, skin grafts, complicated wound management, minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy, laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, etc. The goal of veterinary surgery may be quite different in pets and in farm animals. In the former, situation is a bit like in human beings, and more and more complex operations are performed, with sophisticated anesthesia techniques. In the latter, the cost of the operation must not exceed the economic benefit in surgically treating the illness. Whereas Radiology is a medical specialty that uses imaging to diagnose and treat diseases seen within the body. Radiologists use a variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose and/or treat diseases.

Veterinary Science is the science of diagnosing, treating and curing the diverse types of diseases in birds and animals. The subject broadly covers the study of animal physiology, treatment and prevention of diseases among animals. The basic principles of this specialized branch of study are quite similar to that of human medical sciences. But the job profile of a veterinary doctor or a vet is much more than that of a general physician or a surgeon. It involves not only taking care of animal health but also includes scientific breeding and handling of livestock.

Veterinary education is the tertiary education of veterinarians. The provision of high quality veterinary education is key to equipping potential veterinarians with the necessary knowledge to perform efficiently and to support Veterinary Services effectively. In numerous countries, however, notably in many developing and in-transition countries, the quality of veterinary education is failing to meet the requirements for delivering highly competent Veterinary Services. This has therefore highlighted the need for veterinary education to be strengthened, with particular emphasis on establishing minimum competencies and harmonising key curriculum elements to facilitate international mobility of veterinarians.

The scope for veterinarians in the future is bright. As keeping pets is becoming a fad now, the demand for private veterinary clinics is on the rise in metropolitan cities. And similarly, there has been an unprecedented growth in the poultry sector and animal products technology sector, resulting in an increased demand for veterinarians in different sectors of livestock and poultry.

We look forward to welcome you all in Atlanta, USA.

Veterinary field is one of the fastest growing in the United States. Demand for new treatments such as hip replacements, blood transfusions and cancer treatments are helping to drive the increase. Veterinarian job growth is expected to increase 27.6% in 2016. While the veterinary care industry is growing, it’s the technician and technologist positions that are projected to have the largest increase in the next two years. Job growth for veterinary technologists and technicians is expected to increase by 41% in 2016. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics says this is because pet owners are becoming more affluent while the number of pets continues to grow, so technologists and technicians able to provide specialized services will continue to be in demand.

The ability to provide veterinary services begins in the market for veterinary education, the source of labor in the veterinary markets’ supply chain. Veterinary education is provided by U.S. accredited domestic and foreign schools as well as non-U.S. accredited foreign schools. These schools are both non-profit and for-profit institutions. For the 28 U.S. veterinary colleges the average fees have increased from $10,549 to $25,017 between 1999 and 2014.

In 2014, an estimated 100,137 veterinarians were actively practicing veterinary medicine in the United States. The market for veterinarians is comprised of multiple, horizontally related markets. Veterinarians have numerous employment options upon graduation, including private practice (e.g. companion animal, food animal, mixed animal, equine), public practice (e.g. university, government, uniformed services), industry and non-profits. In 2014, an estimated 100,137 veterinarians were actively practicing veterinary medicine in the United States. The largest share of veterinarians was employed in companion animal medicine (66.5 percent). The remaining share of veterinarians practice in university and colleges (6.3 percent), food animal medicine (6.1 percent), equine medicine (4.4 percent) and mixed animal medicine (3.9 percent).

 

         Figure 1: Funding in Veterinary Research

The outlook is improving for the veterinary profession. For the next two years, the growth rate of U.S. gross domestic product is projected to increase to 3.4 percent, which will improve the financial picture for veterinary practices. The veterinary education market is at, or very near, equilibrium. Historically, the demand for education has exceeded the supply, so that the supply of new veterinarians is equal to the number of available seats. However, the cost of veterinary education is forecast to rise faster than the rate of increase in veterinary compensation, so at some point the higher priced seats will likely be left vacant. This will result in constant class sizes of new veterinarians from 2018-2025. On the other hand, the market for veterinarians is not in equilibrium. The level of compensation offered to new veterinarians is not sufficient to provide a positive return on educational investment despite low unemployment, a negative underemployment rate, and an increasing proportion of veterinary practices working at full capacity. With constant class sizes forecast for 2018-2025 and a growing number of pets over the same period, the forecast for excess capacity in the market for veterinary services will decline, reaching a low of 6 percent.

Scope and Importance:

Veterinary research includes research on prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of animals and on the basic biology, welfare, and care of animals. Veterinary research transcends species boundaries and includes the study of spontaneously occurring and experimentally induced models of both human and animal disease and research at human-animal interfaces, such as food safety, wildlife and ecosystem health, zoonotic diseases, and public policy. Veterinary research has the potential to immensely impact the fields of comparative medicine, public health and food safety, and animal health; but its ability to reach its potential relies on adequate infrastructural, financial, and human resources.

Veterinary research has the potential to immensely impact the fields of comparative medicine, public health and food safety, and animal health; but its ability to reach its potential relies on adequate infrastructural, financial, and human resources. Veterinary research has evolved to address societal changes. Companion animals play a central role in the quality of life of an increasing proportion of the public; the beneficial psychosocial effects of the human-animal bond are widely accepted. Companion animals are also important sentinels for human disease and toxicant exposure, and companion-animal research improves our understanding of zoonotic diseases and how to address them; diagnostic and therapeutic data from companion animals can often be translated to human medicine. Because the health, well-being, and longevity of companion animals are a growing concern for a substantial portion of society, demand for research on companion animal health and disease has increased; indeed, it is crucial for improving the health and welfare of these animals, which serve not only as companions, but as aides, detectives, and soldiers.

In addition to the health of food and companion animals, the health of wildlife and ecosystems is of special importance to an increasingly urban and affluent society. The countryside is increasingly affected by urban development and industrial agriculture. There is growing concern about wildlife preservation and endangered species and growing recognition of the value of wildlife as sentinels for environmental health generally.

Projections:

The veterinary education market is at or very near equilibrium. The outlook for both the near and long term is improving for the veterinary profession, as the recession that began in December of 2007 continues to fade and the U.S. economy begins to return to the longer-term growth trend. Better information on veterinary markets will enhance the profession’s ability to develop strategies to improve the efficiency of the markets and assist in attempts to reach desired market outcomes. Modern veterinary research has markedly improved the quality of life of animals and humans, as indicated by numerous historical achievements. The demands on veterinary research have not diminished but rather have increased, with such emerging threats as bioterrorism and emerging infectious diseases. Veterinary and comparative medicine research is becoming a more pressing need than ever before. The ability of veterinary researchers to address the threats of animal disease and to meet societal needs depends largely on the nation's research capacity. Because research resources are finite, it is important to set a research agenda that will address high-priority issues and anticipate future needs and that can be executed effectively.
