Abstract: Soil nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is generally accepted model organism for assessment of the effectiveness of nematocides using in medicine and veterinary medicine. The aim of this work was the study of the ambient pH influence on the sensitivity of C.elegans and C.briggsae organisms to toxic action of levamisole and nicotine. Results of experiments in which C. elegans and C.briggsae were exposed to levamisole (3-30 ?M) during 90 minutes showed that at 22C pH rise in the range 6,08,0 led to strong increase in nematode sensitivity to toxic levamisole action revealed in complete loss of locomotion. When levamisole concentration was 30 ?M, the percentage of paralyzed C. elegans was 14% at pH=6,0 and 52% at pH=8,0, and the percentage of paralyzed C. briggsae was 14% at pH=6,0 and 85% at pH=8,0. pH increase changed the sensitivity of C. elegans and C. briggsae organisms to the toxicity of nicotine (0,6-2,5 mM) in the same manner. However pH change in the range 6,08,0 did not influence on the aldicarb (60-240 ?M) toxicity for C. elegans and C. briggsae organisms. pH influence on the levamisole toxicity for C. elegans and C. briggsae organisms was stronger at 30C than at 22C. At the same time levamisole toxicity in the whole pH range was higher at 30C than at 22C. The synergism of the influence of temperature rise and pH on levamisole toxicity shows that mechanisms of the dependence of levamisole toxicity on ambient pH and temperature are different. The most likely mechanism of the increase of levamisole and nicotine toxicity for nematodes' organisms by ambient pH increase is the deprotonation of molecules of toxicants facilitating their penetration into organism.

Abstract: The article presents novel triple-component drugs: RolfKlub 3D drops for cats and 3D RolfKlub drops for dogs, the advantage of which is having D-cifenotrin and ethofenprox next-generation pyrethroids as one of their ingredients. The results of experimental preclinical and clinical studies proved the following: according to the level of the effect on mammals at internal introduction the drugs are referred as moderately hazardous and at cutaneous application - as low hazard; do not have local irritating and sensitizing effect. Experimentally the drugs were proved to have an expressed knock-down effect, which is up to 2.16 minutes at average height up to 25.2 cm. At natural condition the repellent activity was studied and indentified to retain during 7 days. The drug therapeutic and prevention effect at ectoparasitoses of dogs and cats in clinical trials was 100%, the prevention effect against myiasis retains for 60 days and against ixodid ticks for 30 days.

Abstract: The northern reindeer farming is adapted to the natural conditions of the Arctic Circumpolar and finds its development in the regions of the Far North. The greater part (two-thirds) of the reindeer population is concentrated in the Russian Federation. The number of domestic northern reindeer reached more than 1.6 million animals while the wild reindeer herds are about 1.5 million species in this area. The industry is largely influenced by geographical factors and ethnic peculiarities of the native population. Keeping the reindeer population number and the industry further development largely depends on animal welfare. Brucellosis is the most dangerous and widespread disease among the reindeer. The reindeer brucellosis epidemics and infection is influenced by the industry technology, the reindeer physiology, the left natural foci with the infection source among reindeer herds. The studies taken place from 1998 to 2013 associated methods of epizootic, clinical and laboratory analyses enabled to have reliable conclusions. The north-western part of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area remains free from the infection. In the central and north-eastern part of the peninsula the infection was registered in Tazovsky and Nadym regions. In various herds brucellosis spread intensity was from 10 to 80% during the epidemic outbreaks. In reindeer brucellosis foci the epidemic outbreaks have cyclic character: the widely spread infection (more than 10% of the infected) the intervals were 3-4 years; at significant distribution (5-10% of the infected ) the intervals were 6-7 years). The infection rate among all the groups of the both sex and all the ages did not significantly differ. The number of  the infected animals was equal in both among the adult and young animals born the previous year. In the infection foci the circulation of brucella with features peculiar to the 4th biotype, B.sius (B. rangiferi) with a high pathogenicity rate was registered.

Abstract: The article presents data on the study of activity and specificity of paratuberculosis antigens from the cultural filtrate of MAP grown on synthetic nutrient media produced by the laboratory of tuberculosis study NSC "IECVM". Three variants of antigen were investigated in complement fixation test (CFT) with positive paratuberculosis serum (definition of activity), and with homologous and heterologous sera from various animal species (definition of specificity). The  produced antigens were determined to have an uneven activity. Thus, working titer in CFT for the antigen PPA was 1:300, for the ACF from the cultural filtrate of MAP grown on Soton nutrient media 1:320 and for the ACF from the cultural filtrate of MAP grown on Watson-Raid nutrient media 1:480. During a comparative study of the antigen specificity it has been found that highest specificity belong to the antigen ACF from the cultural filtrate of MAP grown on Watson-Raid nutrient media. It detected antibodies to M. paratuberculosis only in sera from MAP-infected and MAP-immunized animals and does not react with heterologous sera. Antigen PPA detected antibodies in blood serum (dilutions 1:10 and 1:20) in calves with tuberculosis (M. bovis), in rabbits sensitized with M. fortuitum, M. intracellulare, M. kansasii, M. avium and in MAP-infected and MAP-immunized animals. False-positive results in CFT with the antigen ACF from the cultural filtrate of MAP grown on Soton nutrient media was indicated in sera (dilution 1:10) from rabbits sensitized with alive cultures of M. fortuitum, M. intracellulare and from rabbits infected with M. avium.

Abstract: The article provides an investigation of using computer-assisted tomography (CAT) for differential diagnosis of liver tumors in dogs. Using Toshiba Asteon Super 4 equipment multiple cutting technology of Asteon 4 system allowed true isotropic 3-D data imaging which enabled to view the research results in any projection without losing image quality. Basing on standard investigation with native phase, 80% of the dogs were scanned with intravenous contrast. The CAT- results identified the differences between the form of primary tumor focus, hepatocellular cancer and cholangiocellular cancer, as well as the contours of tumors and liver morphology. The CAT accuracy in metastases detection was 86%. Using the computer-assisted tomography method to investigate liver tissues allows evaluation of liver size and contours, direct and detailed imaging of both the inner structure and  various neoplasms in an organ  for more accurate detection and discriminatory diagnosis.

Abstract: The aim of the investigation is to characterize the epidemical situation on major animals parasites and structure of helminthoses in meat cattle herds from the farms of the Altay republic. Helminthes of all the basic taxonomic groups are widespread among the meat breeds (Aberdeen Angus, Hereford, Kazakh Whitehead, Galloway). The total structural indexes of trematods, nematodes and cestodes parasites are 33.9, 66.3, and 2.8 accordingly. Mostly the animals are infected with intestinal strongilata, the average tension in the farms was 59.4%, maximum infection extensity was registered in Maiminsky (83.5%) and Choisky (85.8%) regions with infection index equal to 52.6 and 125.9 eggs/g in biomaterial samples accordingly. The cattle infection rate ranged from 36.0% in 2007 to 66,7 and 60.0% in 2006, 2009  and the average rate was 51,7%. In general, long-term dynamics of the animal infection rate did not change significantly.  In the Altai Republic the species composition of helminthes and the infection level did not significantly differ among various cattle breeds. The infection index of Strongilata intestine helminthes prevailing in the species composition was 66.6 89.3, the average extensity of invasion was 27.9 44.1%. The infection rate by certain parasitic species varies from 10 to 90%. In meat cattle breeds hypodermotosis, sifunculatosis and psoroptosis are of primary epidemic interest. The current infection rate in cattle with helminths and parasitic arthropods requires regular scheduled parasite control measures aimed to reduce the number of pathogens causing major helminthoses and arachnoenthomosis.
Keywords: helminths, meat cattle, parasitic arthropods, infection rate, structure of helminthes species composition, dynamics of infection

Abstract: Ticks are obligate hematophagous highly specialized temporary. On the territory of the Russian Federation described more than 60 species of ticks. The results of studies of distribution, species diversity, population density, species of carnivorous mites ratio in different agro-climatic zones of the Ulyanovsk region. In Ulyanovsk Region 2 mark the peak activity of ticks - from May to June and mid-August - before the end of autumn. Therefore, the collection of adults ticks carried out since the thawing of the soil and up to the formation of snow cover. Ticks collected in sunny weather during their highest activity in the morning from 7 to 13 and in the evening from 16 to 20 hours. As a result of the research, we concluded that the fauna of mites, parasitic on humans and animals in the Ulyanovsk region, represented by two genera Dermacentor and Ixodes with a clear dominance of the genus Dermacentor. Species diversity includes representatives of four types: D. reticulatus, D. marginatus, I. persulcatus, I. ricinus. The ratio of different types of ticks had expressed agroclimatic confinement. The lowest density of ticks was found in Southern climate zone, and the maximum in Zavolzhskaya agro-climatic zone.
Keywords: species diversity, ticks, vector-borne diseases, population density, carnivorous North, pasture and meadow ticks

Abstract: This article describes a method of sampling design to study pets by interviewing the pet owners. This includes the following methodological problems: sampling design when the general data on pets lacks and the scheme of territorial stratified sampling is needed. We propose to use a two-stage survey scheme to identify the total number of the households with pets. The first stage is to sample the households fulfilling the following tasks: to identify the general number of houses with pets and evaluate the obtained data. To identify the number of pet-owners all the houses were interviewed using a short questionnaire consisting from 7-13 questions. This information was further used for the second stage of the sampling design, when the empirical data is collected. During the second stage only pet owners were interviewed using a longer questionnaire this time (68 questions). The scheme of shorter and longer questionnaire significantly reduced the costs for interviewing. For reliable results the peculiarities of the city territory should also be taken into consideration. As various parts of the city do not usually have the same conditions the samples data was stratified using the following algorithm: 1. dividing the city territory into the areas to identify strata with homogeneous conditions; 2. to assess the amount of each strata; 3. to evaluate the samples using the obtained data. The city territory was divided into the areas regarding the peculiarities of housing unit density. The amount of the identified strata was assessed using the free-access GIS-resources - Google Maps and Double-GIS. The proposed method of sampling design is illustrated on dog-owners on the city of Omsk: the amount of the first stage sampling was 1695 pet-owners, the second stage - 382 dog-owners.

Abstract: The aim of this work was to evaluate meat quality in turkey fed with "Vinivet" and "Vinivet plus" fodder additives containing chlorella biomass rich with selenium. In the experiments e White Broad-Breasted  turkeys of "Universal" cross were used. The animals were studied using organoleptic and chemical tests. The test results showed that the moisture content in the white meat was 74.4+0.76% in the controls, the experimental group results were lower for 2.3-3%. The moisture content in the red meat did not significantly differ in the both groups. The fat level in the white meat was 1.4+0.21% in the control group that is lower for 1.8+0.14% than in the first experimental group and for 1.64+0.11% in the second experimental group. The red meat fat level was highe in the both experimental groups than in the control for 0.2 and 0.26% accordingly. The white meat in the experimental groups had highe protein level. The protein level in red meat of the control group was 23.0+0.5%, in the first experimental group - 24.2+0.42 and in the second experimental group - 24.6+0.47 accordingly. The mineral content in the pectoral muscules did not difer aming the groups, however, the parameters tended to increase. Meanwhile, the thigh muscules in turkeys from the second experimental group had significantly higher level of minerals. The both experimental groups had reliably higher selenium content in thigh and pectorial muscules than the controls. The energetic value was higher for 9.0 and 12.6 kcal in white meat and in the red meat for 7.2% and 9.2% in the experimental groups than that of the controls. Therefore, the experiments showed that the Vinivet and Vinivet plus fodder additives increase the meat energetic value, improve its quality and chemical content.

Abstract: The article provides a trial test of corrosivity of "Biodez Extra-TVU" novel disinfectant using metal plates. The drug 1.0% solution (the proposed concentration for animal facilities treatment) was tested using steel (St 3), stainless steel, galvanized steel and aluminum (mark A) plates. The standard, 2.0% solution of sodium hydroxide was used as control. The timing for the both experimental and control drugs was 24 hours. To evaluate the drugs' corrosivity the weight of all plates was registered both before and after immersing into the solutions for 24 hours. Basing on the obtained data we determined corrosion coefficient per a year (g / m2) and corrosion coefficient per 1 hour (g / m2) for the both tested and control drugs. The experiment results showed that after 24 hours immersion the new disinfectant, 1.0% "Extra-Biodez TVU", induces less metal corrosion in steel  (St-3) plates for 5.5 times; Galvanized steel - 4.0; stainless steel - 2.2; aluminium for 12 times than the control drug accordingly. Moreover, the plates' surface remained unchanged.

Abstract: The article presents the results of studying the new home probiotic antibacterial drug, Sporobacterin, influence on piglet non- specific immunity parameters. At using the probiotic drug in the first experimental group blood lysozymic activity raised for 6,4% (p<0,01) in the second experimental group it raised for 6,92% (p<0,01) than the control one. The cellular  protection in the piglet organism is known to be produced  by phagocyte activity of microphags and macrophags the functions of which are closely interrelated. At the same time, being a non- specific protection factor the phagocytes influence on the antigen and promote T- and B- lymphocyte activity needed for body immune response. Exposed to Sporobacterin tested probiotic antibacterial drug the piglets from the first experimental group showed a raise of phagocyte activity in the blood at average for 7,32% (p<0,01), and the second experimental goup - for 7,97% (p<0,01) than in the controls. The increase of lymphocytes was characterized in the first and the second tested groups of animals for 16,42 and 18,31 % (p<0,01), the number of T- lymphocytes for 7,08 and 7,84% (p<0,01) and the number B- lymphocytes for 6,48 and 6,65 % (p<0,01) in comparison with the control accordingly.
