About the Journal


The Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Medicine was launched in 1979 as the official scientific periodical of the Sociedade de Medicina Veterinária do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (SOMVERJ). It is recognized by the Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Veterinária (SBMV) and the Conselho Regional de Medicina Veterinária do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (CRMV-RJ).
