  1. The effects of metabolic cage housing and sex on cognitive bias expression in rats

    Contributor(s):: Barker, T. H., Howarth, G. S., Whittaker, A. L.

    The use of metabolic cages is established housing protocol in small-animal, gastrointestinal research. Physiological data, as primarily observed through secretions of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis has shown that rodents housed in this manner experience an increased stress response. Few...

  2. Slow and steady wins the race? No signs of reduced welfare in smaller broiler breeder hens at four weeks of age

    Contributor(s):: Lindholm, C., Calais, A., Jonsson, J., Yngwe, N., Berndtson, E., Hult, E., Altimiras, J.

    Broiler breeder chickens are commonly reared under strict feed-restriction regimes to reduce obesity-induced health and fertility problems during adult life, and are assumed to experience a reduced welfare due to the resulting hunger. In these conditions, feed competition could influence the...

  3. Scientific update

  4. Effect of forage presentation on feed intake behaviour in stabled horses

    Contributor(s):: Ellis, A. D., Fell, M., Luck, K., Gill, L., Owen, H., Briars, H., Barfoot, C., Harris, P.

    In some stabled horses, the lack of foraging opportunity leads to a reduction in chewing time with consequent negative impacts on the digestive system and potentially development of stereotypies. This study aimed to compare the effect of four types of haynets on feed intake behaviour in stabled...

  5. Does Pet-Keeping Modify the Association of Delivery Mode with Offspring Body Size?

    Contributor(s):: Cassidy-Bushrow, Andrea, Wegienka, Ganesa, Havstad, Suzanne, Levin, Albert, Lynch, Susan, Ownby, Dennis, Rundle, Andrew, Woodcroft, Kimberley, Zoratti, Edward, Johnson, Christine

  6. How animals respond to change

    Contributor(s):: Mills, D., Dube, M. B., Zulch, H.

    Sections on underpinning principles relating to stress in companion animals, the effects of presistent stress, or "Why Stress can be so Stressful", other considerations for assessing welfare, and stress auditing.

  7. Periods of early development and the effects of stimulation and social experiences in the canine

    Contributor(s):: Battaglia, C. L.

    It is not capacity that explains the differences that exist between individuals, because most seem to have far more capacity than they will ever use. The differences that exist between individuals seem to be related to something else. Researchers have studied these phenomena and have looked for...

  8. What is the relationship between level of infection and 'sickness behaviour' in cattle?
