    Knowledge of animal behavior is an extremely important component of modern veterinary practice. Appreciation of species-typical behavior helps to ensure that veterinary patients are handled safely and humanely, and plays a pivotal role in the diagnosis of health and welfare problems in animals,...

  6. What are the differences in management and disease between pet and commercial goats?

    Contributor(s):: Roe, V.

    This study was conducted to determine the differences in management and environment and the common disease problems between pet and commercial goats. Goat owners (n=38) were given questionnaires covering the type of enterprise, management and disease. The owners were categorized using both the...

  7. Preliminary studies on the behavioural detection of oestrus in Belgian "warm-blood" mares with acoustic and tactile stimuli

    Contributor(s):: Veeckman, J., Odberg, F. O.

    The object of this study was to find a reliable, economic, time-saving and easy method to "try" mares for oestrus without the use of a teaser male. The reactions of barren mares, mares with a foal at foot and maiden mares towards the teaser were established and compared to the reactions towards...

  8. Sensory aspects of the sexual behaviour of mares

    Contributor(s):: Veeckman, J., Odberg, F. O.

  9. The accuracy of several aids in detecting oestrus in dairy cattle

    Contributor(s):: Fulkerson, W. J., Sawyer, G. J., Crothers, I.

    The accuracy and efficiency of oestrus detection using behavioural observations, hormone-treated steers or tail paint, or behavioural observations in combination with hormone-treated steers or tail paint was assessed using 120 Friesian cows. The oestrus detection rate for cows in these 5 groups...

  10. Blood concentrations of serotonin, cortisol and dehydroepiandrosterone in aggressive dogs

    Contributor(s):: Rosado, B., Garcia-Belenguer, S., Leon, M., Chacon, G., Villegas, A., Palacio, J.

    Canine aggression directed towards people is the most frequent reason for referral to behaviour practices. In order to provide new and improved diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for this problem, it is necessary to make an in-depth investigation of the biological basis of aggression in this...

  11. Evidence for canine olfactory detection of melanoma

    Contributor(s):: Pickel, D., Manucy, G. P., Walker, D. B., Hall, S. B., Walker, J. C.

    Evidence of chemical markers for melanoma in blood and urine suggests that volatile chemicals might be released from melanoma cells (on the skin surface) in amounts sufficient to allow early diagnosis. When tested using methods normally used in canine olfactory detection of drugs and explosives,...

  12. Evaluation of behaviour testing for human directed aggression in dogs

    Contributor(s):: Borg, J. A. M. van der, Beerda, B., Ooms, M., Souza, A. S. de, Hagen, M. van, Kemp, B.

    Behaviour test batteries are used to identify aggressive dogs. The Dutch Socially Acceptable Behaviour (SAB)-test has been used since 2001 to select against unwanted aggression and fear in specific dog breeds, though much is unknown yet regarding its reliability, validity and feasibility. In this...

  13. Analysis of child-dog play behavior in child psychiatry

    Contributor(s):: Prothmann, A., Albrecht, K., Dietrich, S., Hornfeck, U., Stieber, S., Ettrich, C.

    Children have a natural affinity for animals and most often communicate with them nonverbally; nonverbal communication is authentic and difficult to influence deliberately. This study examines whether characteristic interaction patterns exist during pet-facilitated therapy with dogs, and whether...

  14. Animal-assisted therapy in the treatment of substance dependence

    Contributor(s):: Wesley, M. C., Minatrea, N. B., Watson, J. C.

    The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of animal-assisted therapy (AAT) on the therapeutic alliance with an adult, residential, substance abuse population in group therapy. We used randomized samples and controlled conditions to establish the effects of chosen variables that...

  15. Dog-assisted therapy in the treatment of chronic schizophrenia inpatients

    Contributor(s):: Villalta-Gin, V., Roca, M., Gonzalez, N., Domenec, E., Cuca, Escanilla, A., Asensio, M. R., Esteban, M. E., Ochoa, S., Haro, J. M.

    Patients with a diagnosis of schizophrenia living in long-term care units show high levels of disability. The present study aimed to assess the effectiveness of including a trained therapy dog in an intervention program applied to institutionalized patients with chronic schizophrenia. A...

  16. A non-invasive system for remotely monitoring heart rate in free-ranging ungulates

    Contributor(s):: Gedir, J. V.

    A new, external non-invasive telemetric heart rate (HR) monitoring system was evaluated on 8 wapiti (Cervus elaphus canadensis), yearlings in July and August 1996. The assembly consisted of a leather girth strap, onto which a HR transmitter and a customized carriage bolt electrode system were...

  17. A pilot study to assess whether high expansion CO2;-enriched foam is acceptable for on-farm emergency killing of poultry

    Contributor(s):: Gerritzen, M. A., Sparrey, J.

    This pilot experiment was conducted to ascertain whether CO2-enriched high expansion foam could be an acceptable and efficient alternative in emergency killing of poultry. This method could have wide-ranging applications but with particular emphasis on small (backyard) flocks, free-range sheds or...

  18. Associations between lesion-specific lameness and the milk yield of 1,635 dairy cows from seven herds in the Xth region of Chile and implications for management of lame dairy cows worldwide

    Contributor(s):: Green, L. E., Borkert, J., Monti, G., Tadich, N.

    Lameness is one of the greatest infringements of welfare in dairy cows. The objective of this study was to investigate associations between milk yield and foot lesions causing lameness in Chilean dairy cattle with the hypothesis that if we can demonstrate that lameness reduces yield, and so...

  19. Can a modified Latency-to-Lie test be used to validate gait-scoring results in commercial broiler flocks?

    Contributor(s):: Berg, C., Sanotra, G. S.

    Bodily contact with water is a novel and aversive experience for broiler chickens, and this has been used when designing the Latency to Lie (LTL) test. The original testing procedure, in which the birds are tested in groups, involves a certain settling period, which makes the test time-consuming...
