A local breed dog was brought to the veterinary clinic with signs of vomiting and decreased appetite. Physical examination revealed a pale mucosa of the eye and nose, 2 seconds of CRT, abdomen distention and stiffness. A haematology examination indicated WBC drop into 4.9, lymphocyte into 5.4, MCV to into 55.42 and Plate Distribusi Wide 8.1. The X-ray test showed the presence of an unknown mass around the intestine. Therefore, the dog was then diagnosed with intestinal obstruction. A laparotomy exploration with an enterotomy technique was performed to treat the condition. The surgery procedure found a mass of stone-like faeces that also consist of a mix of grass. The stone-like faeces were then removed from the intestine. Post-surgery monitoring was performed routinely and the dog received Cefotaxime Sodium (Claforan®) 22 mg/kg, Odansentron HCl (Zofran®) 0.2 mg/kg, Sucralfate (Carafate®) 0.8 gram, Lactulose (Cephulac®) 25 mL, Dexamethasone (Dexasone®) 1 mg/kg, Diphenhydramine HCl (Benadryl®) 3mg/kg, along with antiseptic treatment for the surgical incision. 3 days after the operation the dog began to show signs of recovery where the dog appeared to start moving and showed the desire to eat food. This condition can be prevented by not giving the dog food that bones. Lastly, the dog should be only released in a safe and knowledgeable environment.

Fibrosarcoma is a malignant neoplasm of fibroblast that commonly found in middle-aged or older dogs. Breed and sex do not influence the incidence of fibrosarcoma. A 10 years old grey female mix Pomeranian with a bodyweight of 9.2 kg showed a semi-solid mass, with meat-like consistency that felt integrated with the tissue underneath. A mass with a diameter of ± 5 cm had been found in the left thigh near the anus. The other two unusual masses with smaller size (diameter ±1 cm) were also found at lateral sinister near extremities cranial of the body. A serial of diagnostic check-ups, such as physical and clinical check-up, USG, haematology, cytology, and histopathology tests was run to examine the dog condition. The USG result showed hypoechoic masses with slightly anechoic appearances. The haematology analysis showed a decrease in lymphocyte, MCV and hematocrit, meanwhile the granulocyte, MCHC and MHC showed an increasing trend. The cytology test revealed a fat-like vacuolization. Furthermore, the histology examination indicating the presence of large hyperchromic oval cells. The histopathology examination also found fibroblast cells that suspected as tumour cells with mitotic and infiltrated oval cores. Thus, the dog was diagnosed with fibrosarcoma and the prognosis was dubious. The surgery was done to remove the tumour masses.

Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DBD) is still a health problem in Kota Kupang.DBD controls have been continuously performed to reduce the population of Culex sp. However, the modern larvicide has caused an environmental problem, toxic to species non-target and found to be resistance. The present study aimed to investigate the larvicidal activity of Cymbopogon citratuson Culex sp. The extract of C. citratus was used for larvicidal activity at concentration of 0%; 0.2%; 0.4%; 0.6%; 0.8% and 1%. The mortality rate was calculated after 2, 4, 12 and 24 hours. The results showed that the mortality of larvae was 5.3% (0%); 45.3% (0.2%); 70.6% 0.4%; 96% (0.6%); 100% (0.8% and 1%). The present investigation suggests the possible use of C. citratus as an ideal ecofriendly, larvicidal agent for the control of Culex sp.

Moringa oleifera Lam contains protein compounds, vitamin A, minerals, essential amino acids, antioxidants, and flavonoids, and has an impact on the hematological profile. Based on the evaluated phytochemical, The aim of this study was to identify the eosinophil image of Sumba Onggle Cattle fed with moringa. The research was started from March to September 2017. The research was carried out was in the Integrated Dry Land Laboratory, Nusa Cendana University. and Regional Health Laboratory of East Nusa Tenggara Province. The stages of the research were started with the selection of the sample of the studied cattle (12 adult Sumba Ongole Cattle), the adaptation period, and the duration of treatment of moringa on the cattle for 50 days. The research sample chosen was. The results of the research data showed that the value of eosinophil in the first treatment from 0.32 x 103 / µl to 0.47 x 103 / µl. In contrast to treatment 2 which has a range of eosinophils at a value of 0.04 x 103 / µl to 0.69 x 103 / µl. However, the eosinophil value at the end of the treatment was in the normal range in cattle (0.1 x 103 / µl-1,2x 103 / µl). Eosinophil value data on day 50 showed that eosinophil values tended to increase and in the normal range of eosinophils. These results indicate that the cows fed with moringa showed an eosinophil profile that remained in the normal range.

Sumba ongole (Bos indicus) is one of the Indonesian local cattle breeds that has a high number of carcasses and good adaptability to the dry climate and low humidity on the island of Sumba. Cattle have a forestomach consisting of the rumen, reticulum, and omasum, which functions to ferment and absorb nutrition. This study aims to determine the distribution of acid carbohydrates in the rumen, reticulum, and omasum of sumba ongole cattle. Six samples of the rumen, reticulum, and omasum were collected from East Sumba Slaughter House, fixed in formalin 10 %, processed histologically, and continued with alcian blue (AB) staining. The result showed the various/different intensity of acid carbohydrates in each of the tunica of the rumen, reticulum, and omasum. The distribution is mostly found in the stratum corneum lamina epithelium. The results of this study indicate that the stratum corneum is the layer that is more frequently exposed to food that requires acid carbohydrates in its function to protect the forestomach as well as to lubricate the food to make it easier to digest.

Beef is one type of meat that is quite popular with almost all Indonesian people, especially in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT). Storage of beef at room temperature and open space can accelerate the occurrence of decay in meat. This is because the complete nutritional content and high water content in meat can be a good medium for the growth of pathogenic bacteria or spoilage bacteria. One of the efforts that can be done to prevent meat rot is to do a natural preservative method by utilizing plant parts that contain antimicrobial compounds. Moringa leaves are one part of the plant which is known to have antimicrobial compounds. This study aims to determine the effect of Moringa oleifera Lamk leaf extract on the microbiological and organoleptic quality of beef. This research is an experimental laboratory research. A total of 48 thigh beef (Biceps femoris) beef samples were tested in this study using a completely randomized factorial pattern design, namely concentration factors of 0% (K0), 5% (K1), 10% (K2), and 15% (K3) extract Moringa leaf and long storage factor at room temperature are 0 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours, and 18 hours and repeated three times. The parameters tested were color quality, texture, aroma, initial decay test, pH test, and total plate count (TPC) test. The results showed changes in the color, aroma, and texture of the meat. The Eber test shows the K3 group can last up to 18 hours. There was a very significant difference between the concentration of Moringa leaf extract on the length of storage of meat and the pH value of meat (P
