  1. Psycho-Behavioural Changes in Dogs Treated with Corticosteroids: A Clinical Behaviour Perspective

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Notari, Lorella, Kirton, Roxane, Mills, Daniel S.

    Arousal and distress are often important factors in problematic behaviours, and endogenous corticosteroids are important mediators in the associated stress responses. Exogenous corticosteroid treatments have been reported to change behaviour in human patients and laboratory animals, with...

  2. Treating Agitation in Patients with Dementia with a Therapy Dog in a Milieu Therapy Setting on a Geropsychiatric Ward

    | Contributor(s):: Krüger, J., Izgi, R., Hellweg, R., Ströhle, A., Jockers-Scherübl, M. C.

    BACKGROUND: Animal-assisted intervention has become a common therapeutic practice used for patients with dementia in home-dwelling and institutions. The most established procedure is a visiting service by specially trained dogs and their owners to improve social interactions and reduce symptoms...

  7. Physiological and Behavioral Responses of Horses to Wither Scratching and Patting the Neck When Under Saddle

    | Contributor(s):: Thorbergson, Zoë W., Nielsen, Sharon G., Beaulieu, Rodney J., Doyle, Rebecca E.

    Riding is considered to be an arousing activity for horses. It has been suggested that wither scratching may be a more useful tool for relaxation compared with the common practice of neck patting. In the current study, 18 horses were exposed to 3 treatments, including control or no interaction,...

  8. Qualitative Behavioural Assessment of Angus steers during pre-slaughter handling and relationship with temperament and physiological responses

    | Contributor(s):: Stockman, Catherine A., McGilchrist, Peter, Collins, Teresa, Barnes, Anne L., Miller, David, Wickham, Sarah L., Greenwood, Paul L., Cafe, Linda M., Blache, Dominique, Wemelsfelder, Francoise, Fleming, Patricia A.

    This study examined the behavioural expression of cattle immediately prior to slaughter through the process of Qualitative Behavioural Assessment (QBA), and compared these results to measurements of physiology and temperament. Twenty-eight Angus steers were filmed while in a funnel chute as they...

  9. The genetics of temperament in Merino sheep and relationships with lamb survival

    | Contributor(s):: Plush, Kate J., Hebart, Michelle L., Brien, Forbes D., Hynd, Philip I.

    Investigations were made into the genetics of several temperament traits in Merino ewes, with particular emphasis on those aspects which might be associated with maternal behaviour at lambing and consequently, the postnatal survival of lambs. If a beneficial relationship between ewe temperament...

  10. Responses of dams versus non-nursing cows to machine milking in terms of milk performance, behaviour and heart rate with and without additional acoustic, olfactory or manual stimulation

    | Contributor(s):: Zipp, Katharina A., Barth, Kerstin, Rommelfanger, Eike, Knierim, Ute

    There is increasing interest in dam rearing where dairy cows are milked and nurse their calves additionally. One shortcoming in dam rearing is the impaired alveolar milk ejection, which lowers the milk yield obtainable by machine milking. In this study dams and non-nursing dairy cows were...

  11. Effect of an interactive therapeutic robotic animal on engagement, mood states, agitation and psychotropic drug use in people with dementia: a cluster-randomised controlled trial protocol

    | Contributor(s):: Wendy Moyle, Elizabeth Beattie, Brian Draper, David Shum, Lukman Thalib, Cindy Jones, Siobhan O'Dwyer, Cindy Mervin

    Introduction Apathy, agitated behaviours, loneliness and depression are common consequences of dementia. This trial aims to evaluate the effect of a robotic animal on behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia in people with dementia living in long-term aged care.Methods and...

  12. Effect of animal‐assisted interventions on depression, agitation and quality of life in nursing home residents suffering from cognitive impairment or dementia: A cluster randomized controlled trial

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Olsen, Christine, Pedersen, Ingeborg, Bergland, Astrid, Enders‐Slegers, Marie‐José, Patil, Grete, Ihlebæk, Camilla

    Objectives The prevalence of neuropsychiatric symptoms in cognitively impaired nursing home residents is known to be very high, with depression and agitation being the most common symptoms. The possible effects of a 12‐week intervention with animal‐assisted activities (AAA) in nursing homes...
