  2. The Role of Clinical Veterinary Medicine in the Assessment and Treatment of Laboratory Animal Distress

    | Contributor(s):: V. Hampshire

    It is doubtful that the scientific community will ever arrive at a consensus definition for distress as it may be attempted for the purposes of improving animal welfare in and across the myriad of research, testing and teaching facilities in the United States and throughout the minuet of...

  7. Animal Experimentation as a Form of Rescue

    | Contributor(s):: Alexander Zambrano Mr.

    In this paper I explore a new approach to the ethics of animal experimentation by conceiving of it as a form of rescue. The notion of rescue, I suggest, involves some moral agent(s) performing an action or series of actions, whose end is to prevent or alleviate serious harm to another party, harm...

    Rabbits are the third most common companion mammal in Western homes, and their popularity continues to rise. However, they are also one of the most broadly used animal resources around the world, commonly being bred for their food, their fur, and their utility as biological models in animal...

  9. High school students' perceptions of animal mentation and their opinions on animal use in medical research and entertainment

    | Contributor(s):: Carol M. Okamoto

    This study explored the relationship between high school students' perceptions of animal mentation and liking of animals with agreement on animal use in medical research and entertainment. Higher judgments of animal mentation and Iiking were predicted to correlate with lower agreement on...

  10. Training success in group-housed long-tailed macaques ( Macaca fascicularis) is better explained by personality than by social rank

    | Contributor(s):: Wergard, E. M., Westlund, K., Spangberg, M., Fredlund, H., Forkman, B.

    Using training to prepare laboratory animals for biomedical research is one important behavior management task. With increased knowledge about factors influencing training success, training programs may be optimized, resulting in a refinement of primate husbandry. Even when animals are trained...

  15. Citizens, consumers and animals: what role do experts assign to public values in establishing animal welfare standards?

    | Contributor(s):: Degeling, C., Johnson, J.

    The public can influence animal welfare law and regulation. However what constitutes 'the public' is not a straightforward matter. A variety of different publics have an interest in animal use and this has implications for the governance of animal welfare. This article presents an ethnographic...

    | Contributor(s):: Morgan A. Damm

    Historically, animals have been used in medical research to bring about many of the medical breakthroughs and advances seen today. The successful studies are accompanied by numerous, often concealed, failed studies that are inapplicable to human medicine due to stress and distress changing the...
