  1. Pet ownership and health

    Contributor(s):: June Mcnicholas

    This thesis presents three classes of mechanism that may explain reported associations between pet ownership and health benefits. The first suggests any association is noncausal. Studies 1-3 examine candidate factors to explain both health advantages and likelihood of pet ownership. Type A...

  2. Animal-assisted therapy at Mayo Clinic: The time is now

    Contributor(s):: Creagan, E. T., Bauer, B. A., Thomley, B. S., Borg, J. M.

  3. What is a canine athlete?

    Contributor(s):: Zink, M. C., Dyke, J. B. van

    Canine sports medicine and rehabilitation is the newest specialty in veterinary medicine. It encompasses and integrates a variety of fields, including orthopedics, exercise physiology, neurology, cardiology, pulmonology, nutrition, and others. Rehabilitation, which includes conditioning...

  4. Life-saving dogs

    Contributor(s):: Fischer, Holger, Stöllberger, Claudia, Finsterer, Josef

  5. Do audible and ultrasonic sounds of intensities common in animal facilities affect the autonomic nervous system of rodents?

    Contributor(s):: Burwell, A. K., Baldwin, A. L.

    In animal facilities, noises, often poorly controlled, occur over a wide range of frequencies and intensities. Evidence demonstrates that audible noise and ultrasound have deleterious effects on rodent physiology, but it is not known how they affect the autonomic nervous system (ANS). This study...

  6. The effect of the presence of a companion-animal on physiological changes following the termination of cognitive stressors

    Contributor(s):: DeMello, Lesley R.

    Determined the effect of the presence of an unknown friendly pet on physiological measures of normotensive adults following the termination of a cognitive stressor, using a repeated measures design. Unlike most of the past research, the Ss in the present study included both male and female...

  7. Humans' bonding with their companion dogs: Cardiovascular benefits during and after stress

    Contributor(s):: Campo, Rebecca A., Uchino, Bert N.

  8. Behavioral and cardiac responses by dogs to physical human-dog contact

    Contributor(s):: Kuhne, F., Hossler, J. C., Struwe, R.

    Measures of behavioral responses and cardiovascular parameters to evaluate and assess animal well-being are well established. A major aspect of companion animal well-being seems to originate from direct human-animal interaction. For pet dogs, the manner in which they obtain and respond to petting...

  9. Cardiorespiratory and Biomechanical Changes with Hippotherapy in Children with and without Cerebral Palsy

    Contributor(s):: B.R. Rigby, A.R. Gloekner, S. Papadakis, A.A. Bane, J.S. Forsse, A.E. Bird, T.R. Willard, D.L. Bullinger, R.R. Rogers, K.D. Biggerstaff, P.W. Grandjean

    Hippotherapy utilizes the rhythmic movement of the horse to improve functional abilities and quality of life of individuals with neurological impairments. Little is known regarding the changes in body segment kinematics and cardiovascular responses of the rider due to the therapy. A change in the...

  10. Heart rate variability in horses engaged in equine-assisted activities

    Contributor(s):: Gehrke, E. K., Baldwin, A., Schiltz, P. M.

  11. Pet's presence and owner's blood pressures during the daily lives of pet owners with pre- to mild hypertension

    Contributor(s):: Friedmann, E., Thomas, S. A., Son, H. S., Chapa, D., McCune, S.

  12. The effect of petting a dog on cardiovascular functioning in humans : an examination of factors related to the human/dog bond

    Contributor(s):: Pearson, Val

  13. Association of pet ownership with eating, exercise, nutritional status, and heart health of seniors

    Contributor(s):: Dembicki, Diane Florence

  14. Using pet support to understand the psychological and physiological mechanisms underlying the social support-reactivity link

    Contributor(s):: Campo, Rebecca Ann

  15. Animal-assisted therapy and cardiovascular disease

    Contributor(s):: Wolff, Andrew I., Frishman, William H.

  16. Cardiovascular Health

    Pet ownership has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health and others as having many benefits for the health and welfare of humans and animals[1][2]. Under some...

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Glenn N. Levine, Karen Allen, Lynne T. Braun, Hayley E. Christian, Erika Friedmann, Kathryn A. Taubert, Sue Ann Thomas, Deborah L. Wells, Richard A. Lange

    The purpose of this American Heart Association Scientific Statement is to critically assess the data regarding the influence of pet ownership on the presence and reduction of cardiovascular disease risk factors and cardiovascular disease risk.

  18. American Heart Association Acknowledges Benefits of Pet Ownership

    Forum › general-discussion › the-human-animal-bond-in-the-media

    The American Heart Association has released a statement acknowledging the benefits of pet ownership on cardiovascular health. The report, published in the AHA journal, Circulation, includes several...

  19. JTT-130, a microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (MTP) inhibitor lowers plasma triglycerides and LDL cholesterol concentrations without increasing hepatic triglycerides in guinea pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Dimple Aggarwal, Kristy L West, Tosca L Zern, Sudeep Shrestha, Marcela Vergara-Jimenez, Maria Luz Fernandez

    Microsomal transfer protein inhibitors (MTPi) have the potential to be used as a drug to lower plasma lipids, mainly plasma triglycerides (TG). However, studies with animal models have indicated that MTPi treatment results in the accumulation of hepatic TG. The purpose of this study was to...

  20. Human Cardiac Responses to Familiar Young Chimpanzees

    | Contributor(s):: Eddy, Timothy J.

    Despite a growing literature on the apparent effects of companion animals on human cardiovascular health, surprisingly little is known about the effects of non-companion animals. This paper describes the result of an experiment that examined the reactions of human subjects to the presence of...
