  1. Attitudes of Australian and Turkish students of veterinary medicine toward nonhuman animals and their careers

    Contributor(s):: Izmirli, S., Yigit, A., Phillips, C. J. C.

    We examined attitudes toward nonhuman animal welfare and rights and career aspirations in Australian and Turkish veterinary students. A representative university was selected in each country, with 190 first- and third-year students sampled in each. Survey questions addressed attitudes toward...

  2. Princely companion or object of offense? The dog's ambiguous status in Islam

    Contributor(s):: Berglund, J.

    Negative attitudes toward dogs are common in Muslim societies. Thus, in studying both past and present Muslim writings on dogs, a contradictory picture emerges, indicating that Muslim attitudes toward dogs have had their ambiguities. At times the dog has been presented as the lowest, filthiest,...

  3. Same pig, different conclusions: stakeholders differ in qualitative behaviour assessment

    Contributor(s):: Duijvesteijn, N., Benard, M., Reimert, I., Camerlink, I.

    Animal welfare in pig production is frequently a topic of debate and is sensitive in nature. This debate is partly due to differences in values, forms, convictions, interests and knowledge among the stakeholders that constitute differences among their frames of reference with respect to pigs and...

  4. The prevalence and implications of human-animal co-sleeping in an Australian sample

    Contributor(s):: Smith, B., Thompson, K., Clarkson, L., Dawson, D.

    Sleep research is characterized by an interest in humans, with the realm of animal sleep left largely to ethologists and animal scientists. However, the lives of sleep-study participants and those with sleep problems frequently involve animals. For the majority of the population in developed...

  5. Animal Resources in Ancient Maya Economy and Exchange: Zooarchaeological and Isotopic Perspectives

    Contributor(s):: Erin Kennedy Thornton, Kitty F. Emery (adviser)

    In this study, I examined how animal resources were incorporated into ancient Maya economic and exchange systems. Although substantial research has been dedicated to understanding Maya economy and exchange, animals and animal products are one important category of natural resources that has not...

  6. Zooarchaeology and Human-Environment Interactions at Pre-Columbian Sitio Drago, Panama

    Contributor(s):: Michael Kay, Kitty F. Emery (adviser)

    The archaeological site of Sitio Drago in Bocas del Toro, Panama provides an opportunity for investigation into animal resource use and pre-Columbian people’s interaction with their environment. Sitio Drago is important because of its location in a generally overlooked, but essential,...

  7. Can dogs alleviate the desolation created by having fewer children? An empirical study in the Japanese context

    Contributor(s):: Kawata, Y.

    Over the last several decades, in Japan, the young population (YP; less than 14 years old) has decreased whereas the number of registered dogs (RDs) has increased as a result of various socioeconomic factors. The total sum of YP and RD has remained virtually constant since the early 1990s. In...

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

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

  9. Hediger revisited: how do zoo animals see us?

    Contributor(s):: Hosey, G.

    Contact with people, both familiar (e.g., caretakers) and unfamiliar (e.g., members of the public), is a significant part of the lives of nonhuman animals in zoos. The available empirical evidence shows that in many cases this contact represents a source of stress to the animals, although there...

  10. Consumer choice and farmers' markets

    Contributor(s):: Dodds, R., Holmes, M., Arunsopha, V., Chin, N., Le, T., Maung, S., Shum, M.

    The increasing popularity of local food consumption can be attributed to the heightened awareness of food safety concerns, carbon emissions produced from food transportation, and an understanding of how large corporations' obtain their food supplies. Although there is increasing discussion on...

  11. Environmental duty of care: from ethical principle towards a code of practice for the grazing industry in Queensland (Australia)

    Contributor(s):: Greiner, R.

    Among the options of government for reducing negative environmental externalities from agriculture is the institution of a polluter statutory liability. An environmental duty of care imposes a statutory liability on agents who interact with the environment to avoid causing environmental harm....

  12. Human-dog interactions and behavioural responses of village dogs in coastal villages in Michoacan, Mexico

    Contributor(s):: Ruiz-Izaguirre, E., Eilers, K. H. A. M., Bokkers, E. A. M., Ortolani, A., Ortega-Pacheco, A., Boer, I. J. M. de

    In Mexican villages, most households keep dogs that roam freely. Therefore, socialisation of village dogs occurs in a different context than that of companion dogs in developed countries. The objectives of this study were: (1) to assess village dogs' behavioural responses towards familiar and...

  13. Local food and international ethics

    Contributor(s):: Navin, M. C.

    Many advocate practices of 'local food' or 'locavorism' as a partial solution to the injustices and unsustainability of contemporary food systems. I think that there is much to be said in favor of local food movements, but these virtues are insufficient to immunize locavorism from criticism. In...

  14. Owners and pets exercising together: canine response to veterinarian-prescribed physical activity

    Contributor(s):: Byers, C. G., Wilson, C. C., Stephens, M. B., Goodie, J. L., Netting, F. E., Olsen, C. H.

    Using a prospective, randomized, single-blinded clinical design, we enrolled dog owners (DOs) and their dogs presenting to a veterinary referral hospital in a two-phase trial to determine whether veterinarian-initiated counseling increases physical activity and leads to secondary health benefits...

  20. A therapist's guide to treating grief after the loss of a pet: a three-tier model

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Tamara A. K. Miller, Maurice F. Prout, Mary Rourke, Carin Lefkowitz, Bret Boyer

    Grief after the death of a pet has been demonstrated to parallel grief after the death of a person, yet many people report feeling a lack of support from family, friends, and even therapy providers when experiencing pet bereavement (Archer & Winchester, 1994; Chur-Hansen, 2010; Gosse &...
