Academic Week of Veterinary Medicine attracts hundreds of students


The 37th edition of the Academic Week of Veterinary Medicine (Ciclovet 2022) brought together hundreds of undergraduates at UEL throughout this week. Involved in a program that included courses and round tables, students were able to exchange experiences in the practical work show, held at the Cyro Grossi Amphitheater, at the Biological Sciences Center (CCB). Present were undergraduates and professors of Veterinary Medicine from UEL and three other universities based in Londrina – Unopar, Unifil and Universidade Positivo.

“This year’s proposal was to hold the congress in a theoretical-practical way. Previously, it was just lectures by professionals from various areas and this year we did something practical because, because of the pandemic, no one could stand to be alone as a listener anymore. We had two days of mini-courses to make these future professionals have a little bit of what is often a gap in graduation, for example, wild animals”, explained the coordinator of Ciclovet, the professor of the Department of Veterinary Medicine Fernanda Ferreira.

The program included lectures on mental health at graduation, allergies from contact with small animals, prescription of manipulated drugs and the job market in Veterinary Medicine. “Large animals and Physiotherapy, for example, were topics included in the program of courses to complement even these gaps and bring a taste of the practical part to the students”, says the professor.

She recalls that the organization of the event had the involvement of 32 undergraduate students from UEL, who coordinated with the speakers, raising funds through sponsorship of companies in the sector, publicizing the event and organizing the Academic Exhibition of Scientific Works. .

academic show

The Academic Exhibition of Scientific Works of the 37th edition of Ciclovet had 72 works submitted, exhibited over the four days. Scientific Initiation (IC) scholarship students and non-scholarship students participated.

Intern at the Animal Reproduction Biotechnology Laboratory – ReproA, the 4th year Veterinary Medicine student Andrey Osvaldo Souza Ferro is an IC fellow in the laboratory. He presented two works and brought two practical reports for the last day of the academic exhibition. “One of them is Cesarean in a Primiparous Pig and the other is a Fetotomy in an Equine Dystocic Delivery”, he says.

According to him, the two cases – where the swine fetus was in an abnormal position, at risk of dying, and the equine calf was already lifeless in the uterus – were treated and monitored by the team from the Laboratory of Biotechnology of Animal Reproduction. “Dystocia in pigs is not that common, it occurs in 0.5% to 1% of all farrowings. And the fetotomy is a technique that we can use to perform the removal of the fetus. We did it because of the owner’s conditions, because he wouldn’t be able to perform a cesarean section on that animal. Fetonomy ended up being an alternative, it is the removal of the fetus in fragments. I end up fractionating, we make cuts and removal of fetal limbs, after we identify that he is lifeless. It’s a rare thing and it was done in the best possible way. The animal had a good recovery,” he explains.

Students Eduardo Antônio de Almeida Rossignolo, Isabela Caldato, João Pedro Ferruzzi Virijosque, Fabio Morotti, Ana Clara Canto Souza, Higor Souza de Camargo, Lucas Dias dos Santos, Ana Karolyne Alves Miguel and Gabrieli Dutra Gonçalves also participated in the elaboration of these reports. The coordinator was Professor Marcelo Marcondes Seneda.


According to Fernanda Ferreira, some reports of practical cases brought new methodologies for the surgical clinical care of small animals, in addition to innovations in reproduction. “Also in the area of ​​public health, dealing mainly with toxoplasmosis, leptospirosis, several other very important public health issues”, she says.

“One of the awardees worked with stem cells in the treatment of kidney disease in a dog, which is something that is happening now and is having a good efficiency in the treatment, leading the animal not to a cure, but to an intense improvement in the treatment. These are very important results”, he concludes.
