  1. Tail and ear biting lesions in pigs: an epidemiological study

    Contributor(s):: Smulders, D., Hautekiet, V., Verbeke, G., Geers, R.

    Tail and ear biting lesions have a negative effect both on the animal welfare status of pigs (Sus scrofus) and the economical revenue of the pig farm. Tail biting behaviour is an unpredictable, abnormal behaviour that is thought to have a multifactorial origin. On-farm factors influencing tail...

  2. Tail-biting in mink ( Mustela vison ) is influenced by age at removal from the mother

    Contributor(s):: Mason, G.

    Female mink removed from the dam at 7 weeks of age were more likely to bite their tails than were those removed at 11 weeks. At both 6 and 10 months of age the mink removed earlier were more likely to have bald tails from biting. Where provided with plastic drinker dishes, early weaned animals...

  5. The effects of light intensity and light source on injuries due to pecking of male domestic turkeys ( Meleagris gallopavo )

    | Contributor(s):: Moinard, C., Lewis, P. D., Perry, G. C., Sherwin, C. M.

    It has been shown that, in small groups of intact male domestic turkeys, supplementary ultraviolet (UV-A) radiation, visual barriers, and added straw (environmental enrichment) minimize the incidence of injurious pecking under incandescent light at 5 lux. This paper describes two experiments,...

    | Contributor(s):: Alban, L., Dahl, P. J., Hansen, A. K., Hejgaard, K. C., Jensen, A. L., Kragh, M., Thomsen, P., Steensgaard, P.

    Textbook recommendations for gavaging rats vary between 1-5 ml for an adult rat. Rats weighing either 130 or 250 g were gavaged with varying dosages of barium sulphate (BaSO4). After dosing, radiographs were taken at 0, 15 and 60 min. Animals showing a section of the small intestine totally...

  8. Human and animal inter-relationships. Review Series: 3. Normal behaviour patterns of dogs: part I. 4. Behavioural problems of dogs: part II

    | Contributor(s):: Blackshaw, J. K.

    Most problems arise when the owner fails to realize that the dog must be part of a defined hierarchy. The treatment of aggression, attention seeking, and elimination, feeding and sexual problems is reviewed.

Focus is given on innate or learned behaviour and different types of social behaviour. Some of the normal physiological frequency values of interest at clinical examination...
