The article discusses the findings of veterinary-related studies from several journals. A study from the "Research in Veterinary Science" found the presence Mycobacterium bovis in badgers in Ireland. The "Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery" revealed changes in feline retroviral infections' risk factors and prevalence in Europe. The "American Journal of Veterinary Research" showed the efficacy of perzinfotel and fentanyl in reducing minimum alveolar concentration of isoflurane in dogs.
