  1. Human-animal interaction as a social determinant of health: descriptive findings from the health and retirement study

    Contributor(s):: Mueller, M. K., Gee, N. R., Bures, R. M.

  2. Effects of removal on a lightly exploited coyote population in eastern Nevada

    Contributor(s):: Jackson, Patrick J.

  3. Refinement of biomarker pentosidine methodology for use on aging birds

    Contributor(s):: Cooey, C. K., Fallo, J. A., Avery, M. L., Anderson, J. T., Falkenstei, E. A., Klandorf, H.

  4. 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 Using a dataset of 7686 dogs spanning 20 years, dogs withdrawn for health reasons before they reached retirement were identified.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...

  5. Assessment of severity and progression of canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome using the CAnine DEmentia Scale (CADES)

    Contributor(s):: Madari, A., Farbakova, J., Katina, S., Smolek, T., Novak, P., Weissova, T., Novak, M., Zilka, N.

    Cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS) represents a group of symptoms related to the aging of the canine brain. These changes ultimately lead to a decline of memory function and learning abilities, alteration of social interaction, impairment of normal housetraining, changes in sleep-wake cycle and...

  6. The Elderly and Their Pets

  7. Assessment and treatment of nonpain conditions in life-limiting disease

    Contributor(s):: Villalobos, A. E.

  8. Clinical feasibility of cognitive testing in dogs ( Canis lupus familiaris)

    Contributor(s):: Heckler, M. C. T., Tranquilim, M. V., Svicero, D. J., Barbosa, L., Amorim, R. M.

    Several cognitive tests have been developed to evaluate specific aspects of human and animal learning and memory. These tests have been used for early detection of cognitive deficits and to monitor the treatment of dogs with cognitive impairment. Thus, this article evaluated the feasibility of...

  9. Development of a novel paradigm for the measurement of olfactory discrimination in dogs ( Canis familiaris): a pilot study

    Contributor(s):: Salvin, H. E., McGrath, C., McGreevy, P. D., Valenzuela, M. J.

    Olfactory dysfunction in older human beings has been shown to be associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline, yet age-related changes in olfactory behavior have received little attention in the dog model of human aging. We developed an odor habituation and fine odor discrimination...

  10. The effect of breed on age-related changes in behavior and disease prevalence in cognitively normal older community dogs, Canis lupus familiaris

    Contributor(s):: Salvin, H. E., McGreevy, P. D., Sachdev, P. S., Valenzuela, M. J.

    Variation in breed longevity in the dog has led to the inference that large dogs age at a faster rate than small dogs, possibly because of an increased oxidative load. Potential differences in behavioral aging (the rate of age-related decline in cognito-behavioral performance) across breeds...

  11. The quality of life of pet dogs owned by elderly people depends on the living context, not on the owner's age

    Contributor(s):: Pitteri, E., Mongillo, P., Adamelli, S., Bonichini, S., Marinelli, L.

    Social and physical changes associated with human aging may influence the characteristics of the relationship between dogs and their owners and ultimately pets' quality of life. In view of the need of data on this aspect, this study examined the effects of owners' age on the quality of life of...

  12. A piece of my mind. Hounded

    Contributor(s):: Reisman, A.

  13. Effects of hippotherapy on mobility, strength and balance in elderly

    Contributor(s):: de Araujo, T. B., de Oliveira, R. J., Martins, W. R., de Moura Pereira, M., Copetti, F., Safons, M. P.

  14. Does the attachment system towards owners change in aged dogs?

    Contributor(s):: Mongillo, P., Pitteri, E., Carnier, P., Gabai, G., Adamelli, S., Marinelli, L.

  15. Genetic and environmental influences on individual differences in frequency of play with pets among middle-aged men: a behavioral genetic analysis
