Evaluating the physical welfare of dogs in commercial breeding facilities in the United States
out of 5 stars
Contributor(s):: Moriah J. Hurt, Candace Croney (adviser)
Despite high levels of public concern, the state of commercial breeding (CB) dog welfare is largely unknown. Therefore, this study aimed to characterize the physical welfare of dogs in CB facilities and their environment in Indiana. This study specifically aimed 1) to characterize dog foot...
A 'long-fuse domestication' of the horse? Tooth shape suggests explosive change in modern breeds compared to extinct populations and living Przewalski horses
Contributor(s):: Krish Seetah, Andrea Cardini, Graeme Barker
Archaeological and molecular data suggest that horses were domesticated comparatively recently, the genetic evidence indicating that this was from several maternal haplotypes but only a single paternal one. However, although central to our understanding of how humans and environmental conditions...

The Choice of Diet Affects the Oral Health of the Domestic Cat
Contributor(s):: Fernando Mata
In this cross-sectional study, the gingivitis and the calculus indices of the teeth of N = 41 cats were used to model oral health as a dependent variable using a Poisson regression. The independent variables used were “quadrant”, “teeth type”, “age”, and...
Human-dog interactions and behavioural responses of village dogs in coastal villages in Michoacan, Mexico
Contributor(s):: Ruiz-Izaguirre, E., Eilers, K. H. A. M., Bokkers, E. A. M., Ortolani, A., Ortega-Pacheco, A., Boer, I. J. M. de
In Mexican villages, most households keep dogs that roam freely. Therefore, socialisation of village dogs occurs in a different context than that of companion dogs in developed countries. The objectives of this study were: (1) to assess village dogs' behavioural responses towards familiar and...

Pulp cavity-tooth width ratios from known-age and wild-caught coyotes determined by radiography
Contributor(s):: Frederick F . Knowlton, Susan L . Whittemore
Although the relative sizes of pulp cavities in teeth are used frequently to identify various age classes of carnivores, validation of the technique has received little attention. We measured the pulp cavities and tooth widths based on radiographs of canine and premolar teeth from a large sample...

Influence of teeth resection on the skin temperature and acute phase response in newborn piglets

The effect of two piglet teeth resection procedures on the welfare of sows in farrowing crates. Part 2
Contributor(s):: Lewis, E., Boyle, L. A., Brophy, P., O'Doherty, J. V., Lynch, P. B.
Recent EU legislation discourages the practice of resecting piglets' needle teeth. However, the effect of leaving piglets' teeth intact on the welfare of sows in farrowing crates is poorly understood. Therefore, the aim of the study was to compare the effects of clipping and grinding piglets'...
The effect of two teeth resection procedures on the welfare of piglets in farrowing crates. Part 1
Contributor(s):: Lewis, E., Boyle, L. A., Lynch, P. B., Brophy, P., O'Doherty, J. V.
Teeth resection is a method of controlling the injurious effects of the aggression displayed when newborn piglets fight to establish a teat order. Recent European legislation discourages the practice. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of clipping and grinding piglets' needle...
Evaluation of behaviour testing for human directed aggression in dogs
Contributor(s):: Borg, J. A. M. van der, Beerda, B., Ooms, M., Souza, A. S. de, Hagen, M. van, Kemp, B.
Behaviour test batteries are used to identify aggressive dogs. The Dutch Socially Acceptable Behaviour (SAB)-test has been used since 2001 to select against unwanted aggression and fear in specific dog breeds, though much is unknown yet regarding its reliability, validity and feasibility. In...
Long-term detrimental effects of tooth clipping or grinding in piglets: a histological approach
Contributor(s):: Hay, M., Rue, J., Sansac, C., Brunel, G., Prunier, A.
The needle teeth of piglets are often cut shortly after birth to prevent damage to littermates and the sow's udder. This practise is, however, contested because the pain it inflicts to piglets may counterbalance its benefits. The purpose of this experiment was to assess the consequences of tooth...
Relationships between pathology and pain severities: a review
Contributor(s):: Gregory, N. G.
The relationships between pathology severity and pain severity are reviewed using the literature available for humans. The aim is to help veterinary radiologists, physicians and pathologists recognise the disorders in which severity of a lesion is likely to be related to the severity of pain or...
