Dermatite atópica canina : impacto na qualidade de vida do doente e seus donos
Contributor(s):: Catarina Isabel Ramalho de Oliveira Ruivo
A dermatite atópica canina (DAC) é uma doença cutânea pruriginosa, crónica, recorrente e multifactorial, sendo muito semelhante à doença no Homem, não só quanto à existência de uma hiperreactividade imunológica, mas...

Using the incidence and impact of health conditions in guide dogs to investigate healthy ageing in working dogs
Contributor(s):: Caron-Lormier, G., England, G. C. W., Green, M. J., Asher, L.
This study aimed to use retirement data from working guide dogs to investigate healthy ageing in dogs and the demographic factors that influence ageing. Using a dataset of 7686 dogs spanning 20 years, dogs withdrawn for health reasons before they reached retirement were identified. Cases of...
Effects of carprofen, meloxicam and butorphanol on broiler chickens' performance in mobility tests
Contributor(s):: Hothersall, B., Caplen, G., Parker, R., Nicol, C. J., Waterman-Pearson, A. E., Weeks, C. A., Murrell, J. C.
Lame broiler chickens perform poorly in standardised mobility tests and have nociceptive thresholds that differ from those of non-lame birds, even when confounding factors such as differences in bodyweight are accounted for. This study investigated whether these altered responses could be due to...
On-farm evaluation of the Salmon Welfare Index Model (SWIM 1.0): theoretical and practical considerations
Contributor(s):: Folkedal, O., Pettersen, J. M., Bracke, M., Stien, L. H., Nilsson, J., Martins, C., Breck, O., Midtlyng, P. J., Kristiansen, T.
The present study investigated the operational feasibility of the recently developed Salmon Welfare Index Model (SWIM 1.0) designed for Atlantic salmon ( Salmo salar L) in production cages. Ten salmon farms containing spring smolts were visited twice, first between May and June the first year in...

Environmental complexity and use of space in slow growing free range chickens
Contributor(s):: Rodriguez-Aurrekoetxea, A., Leone, E. H., Estevez, I.
Production environments for meat poultry are generally bi-dimensional open areas where birds tend to cluster along the walls. We investigated the impact of increasing environmental complexity (EC) on slow-growing free-range chickens raised under commercial conditions. The study was conducted in...
With man's best friend
Contributor(s):: Collins, J. M., Lorber, B., Schlossberg, D.
This chapter focuses on human diseases associated with exposure to dogs. The epidemiology of local infections following dog bites, as well as the initial bite management, antibiotic prophylaxis, antibiotic treatment of infection, and prevention of dog bites are discussed. The life-threatening...

Lameness is consistently better at predicting broiler chicken performance in mobility tests than other broiler characteristics
Contributor(s):: Caplen, G., Hothersall, B., Nicol, C. J., Parker, R. M. A., Waterman-Pearson, A. E., Weeks, C. A., Murrell, J. C.
To determine whether lame broilers are in pain it is necessary to compare measures of lameness and mobility before and after analgesic treatment. Such measures should not be unduly affected by other bird characteristics. This study assessed the performance of lame (gait score, GS 3-4) and...
The effect of fine granular sand on pododermatitis in captive greater flamingos ( Phoenicopterus roseus)
Contributor(s):: Wyss, F., Wenker, C., Hoby, S., Houwald, F. von, Schumacher, V., Doherr, M. G., Robert, N.
Pododermatitis is a worldwide health and animal welfare problem in captive flamingos (Phoenicopteridae). Since sub-optimal substrate or flooring has been described as a factor in the development of pododermatitis in poultry and raptors, it is also suspected to play a role in flamingo foot health....
