Small Animals

Veterinary teams today deal with higher caseloads and often-reduced referral care availability. Improvements in efficiency, triage, and schedule management can help with these challenges. But how exactly could this be done?

In this supplement, Rigdon-Brestle et al 1 provide evidence that the ovarian pedicle tie is a safe and efficient surgical technique for ovariohysterectomy in anatomically normal cats, independent of surgeon experience.

A group of articles by McCobb et al 2

Dear readers,

It is my pleasure to co-welcome you to the “Urogenital Health in Your Patients” JAVMA supplement! We are pleased to present you with state-of-the-art studies focusing on the upper and lower urinary tract in multiple species.

Every day we must answer the same question, in every patient: what do I do? The answer is often uncertain. However, the reports we bring you attempt to add some clarity. What works and what does not? What are the experts doing, what would they recommend, and, most importantly, what should I do for this animal here in front of

Dear AJVR Readers and Authors,

Beginning in June, 2022 the AJVR will become an online only, fully open access (OA) journal with no further print issues. A reader, author, and subscriber survey performed in 2021 indicated that over 80% of respondents supported converting the AJVR to a fully OA journal. There are numerous author and reader advantages to publishing OA and this was made possible by launching our completely redesigned journal website https://avmajournals.avma.org/view/journals/ajvr/ajvr-overview.xml.

The AJVR will use the CC BY-NC license whereby the authors retain the copyright and grant the

Dear JAVMA readers,

I just wanted to take a brief moment to remind you that once-monthly JAVMA begins with your next issue, April 2022. In the March 1, 2022 JAVMA, I wrote about the numerous opportunities afforded readers and authors by returning to once-monthly JAVMA, including the launch of “Currents in One Health.” This regular new feature comprises invited papers from veterinarians leading in research and practice at the intersection of animal, human, and environmental health. In addition, reducing JAVMA's frequency to 12 regular issues allows us to publish two

Introduction

Dear JAVMA readers,

The time has come to return to once-monthly print publication of JAVMA, which was its frequency prior to 1956. Extensive reader and author research performed by an external agency in 2020 revealed that only 12% of respondents supported continuation of twice-monthly JAVMA publication. We listened, and once-monthly publication will begin in April 2022 with your JAVMA arriving around the second week of each month.

A lot has changed in the world since 1956 and indeed, in the last several months at the JAVMA. Transitioning to once-monthly
