Alpha lipoic acid is found in trace amounts, soluble in water and fat. ALA plays an essential role in the body's synthases of glutathione, the body's most important endogenous antioxidant, supporting healthy vision, protecting cells from free radicals, and enhancing liver functions. Additionally, ALA helps dissolve toxic substances in the liver. In the present review, we described the history with the physical and biochemical properties of ALA besides highlighting its functions in living organisms. We also reviewed the benefits of using synthetic forms of ALA in domestic animals to prevent and treat medical disorders. In conclusion, in addition to its role in enhancing body functions, ALA also plays a major role as a valuable antioxidant that could give an advantage to its use as a promising treatment against the widespread infection in animals and humans.</p> 2021-12-16T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Multidisciplinary Reviews Principles and cautions in the infrared thermography application in sheep 2021-10-22T12:11:17+00:00 Rodrigo Formiga Leite Luan Aragão Rodrigues Manoel Alves de Freitas Neto Francisco Roserlândio Botão Nogueira Jorge Domingos da Silva Lima Bonifácio Benício de Souza Eldinê Gomes de Miranda Neto <p>Infrared thermography is a safe technology for diagnostic imaging that preserves welfare and does not emit ionizing radiation. This paper aimed to report the principles of infrared thermography formation and cautions on imaging acquisition with sheep illustrations. This technique is based on capturing infrared electromagnetic energy from the matter molecules, proportional to the increase in temperature. The capture of images, not just in sheep, must obey technical criteria to avoid interpretation errors of the thermograms. Direct exposure to solar radiation, humidity, manipulation of the examined area, time of day, proper use of equipment, and the manifestation of certain behaviors can hinder the interpretation of the findings. Infrared thermography is a tool that helps practitioners because it provides practicality, safety, and accurate data.</p> 2021-11-26T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Multidisciplinary Reviews
