Animal care develops and provides pharmacological animal health services and products to assist veterinary profession. Under animal welfare is animal care. Animals have welfare needs and pet owners must supply the needs of their pets most especially when it comes to their health, which is the most crucial thing not just in animals, but in all living things, and of course, their pets’ diet. Pet owners should condition their pets, give them freedom or let them exercise, and provide them optimal nutrition.
When it comes to diet, picking the right food for your pets might be tough. You should avoid getting your pets obese and malnourished. There are plenty of brands out there, and it is difficult to decide what’s best among nutrition trends and advertisement fads. In addition to this, has been currently announced that direct ether extraction provides low quality for the fat content of animal foods that contain cereals. There were three methods contrasted to baked dog foods. One is direct ether extraction, second is hydrolysis with acid before extraction, and third is drying the ether extract after re-extraction. Ether in organic chemistry, is any organic compound class distinguished by an atom of oxygen bound to two classes of alkyls or aryls. It is also useful as solvents for fats, oils, waxes, perfumes, resins, colorants, gums, and hydrocarbons. Another, hydrolysis in organic chemistry is the breakdown of a chemical compound due to water reaction. In hydrolysis, a water molecule is added to a substance which causes both substance and water molecule to separate into two. The importance of hydrolysis is breaking down the food we take from the polymer form into smaller monomers.
Also under animal care is grooming. In terms of grooming, pet owners must know that there are various shampoo ingredients that might harm their pets such as methylchloroisothiazolinone, artificial colors, MEA/Cocomide DEA, mineral oil, propylene glycol, sodium laureth sulfate (or any sulfates), phthalates, parabens, methylparaben, formaldehyde, cocamidopropyl betaine, isopropyl alcohol, isopropyl (SD-40). One factor pet owners must consider is also the fragrance of the animal shampoo. Because of this, one invention was made concerning odor control in animal shampoo which contains a shampoo base added by a halo sulfonamide compound which reacts with nitrogen and sulfur compounds to lessen the odor of these compounds. In this invention of shampoo formulation, one odor control agent is favored which is chloramine-t. This process of controlling odor is like adding sodium hydroxide (NaOH) to acetic acid. Acetic acid (CH3COOH) or also known as ethanoic acid is a synthetic carboxylic acid which has a strong acidic smell which became odorless after adding NaOH solution to it. While adding NaOH solution, the mixture shows a pink or purple color which means that it is starting to become a base. This just means that in order to lessen the acidity of an acid, you have to add a basic solution, and vice versa. In choosing the right toothpaste for your pets, you should not use human toothpaste and other toothpaste alternatives for humans instead, look for pet toothpaste which is often poultry-flavored and malt-flavored. Since veterinarians discovered that dogs are not in favor of being brushed regularly, a dog chew product which is glazed with anti-tartar toothpaste was invented. When the product was being chewed, the dried anti-tartar toothpaste rehydrates. In organic chemistry, this process of changing a solid into a liquid is called melting, vice versa it is called sublimation.
For the conclusion, studying chemistry is an essential part of being a veterinarian. Without it, being a veterinarian would be difficult because medicines and animal care products are all made of chemicals. In short, to be a veterinarian is also to be a chemist.
