  5. Environmental enrichment exerts anxiolytic effects in the Indian field mouse ( Mus booduga)

    Contributor(s):: Varman, D. R., Ganapathy, Marimuthu, Rajan, K. E.

  6. Pet ownership and asthma morbidity

    Contributor(s):: Simpson, A. J., Matusiewicz, S. P., Greening, A. P., Crompton, G. K.

  7. Behavioral and glucocorticoid responses of adult domestic dogs (Canis familiaris) to companionship and social separation

    Contributor(s):: Tuber, Davis S., Hennessy, Michael B., Sanders, Suzanne, Miller, Julia A.

  8. Pain and stress in crustaceans? (Special Issue: Animal suffering and welfare.)

    Contributor(s):: Elwood, R. W., Barr, S., Patterson, L.

    We consider evidence that crustaceans might experience pain and stress in ways that are analogous to those of vertebrates. Various criteria are applied that might indicate a potential for pain experience: (1) a suitable central nervous system and receptors, (2) avoidance learning, (3) protective...

  9. Neonatal handling of Amazon parrots alters the stress response and immune function

    Contributor(s):: Collette, J. C., Millam, J. R., Klasing, K. C., Wakenell, P. S.

    The influence of neonatal handling on behaviour and immune function was assessed in Orange-winged Amazon parrots (Amazona amazonica). Chicks (n=11) were gently handled daily from 25 days of age until 38 days post-fledging, while control chicks (n=9) were not handled. At 10 days post-fledging...

  10. Influence of housing on weanling horse behaviour and subsequent welfare

    Contributor(s):: Heleski, C. R., Shelle, A. C., Nielsen, B. D., Zanella, A. J.

    Weaning foals marks a stressful event in horses' lives. Limited research exists regarding different housing methods post-weaning and the long-term implications on horse behaviour and welfare. The purpose of this study was to monitor behaviour and physiological stress markers in horses weaned...

  11. Stress response of working African elephants to transportation and safari adventures

    Contributor(s):: Millspaugh, T. T., Burke, T., Dyk, G. van, Slotow, R., Washburn, B. E., Woods, R. J.

    African elephants (Loxodonta africana) are intensively managed in southern Africa and are routinely translocated between reserves. Domesticated elephants are used for elephant-back safaris and interactions with guests. Understanding how elephants respond to such activities is critical because of...

  12. Social behaviour and adrenal cortical activity in heifers

    Contributor(s):: Adeyemo, O., Heath, E.

    Heifers of the German Brown Swiss, Holstein and White Fulani cattle were observed before, during and after a training. Individual and social behaviour were observed while the animals were under free housing in the pen, grazing in the paddock and while filing through the crush and the passage...

  13. Physiological and behavioural aspects of assessing stress and welfare in the pig

    Contributor(s):: Barnett, J. L.

  14. Effects of chronic stress on some blood parameters in the pig

    Contributor(s):: Barnett, J. L., Hemsworth, P. H., Hand, A. M.

    Plasma samples from juvenile female pigs exhibiting a chronic stress response, evidenced by higher free corticosteroid concentrations, changes in behaviour and reduced growth rates, were analysed for plasma concentrations of total protein, albumin, glucose, urea and cholesterol. Chronic stress...

  15. Hormonal influences on conditioned fear in pigs

    Contributor(s):: Dantzer, R., Mormede, P.

  16. De-arousal properties of stereotyped behaviour: evidence from pituitary-adrenal correlates in pigs

    Contributor(s):: Dantzer, R., Mormede, P.

    Behavioural and pituitary--adrenal responses of food-deprived pigs, submitted to an intermittent food delivery schedule repeated over several weeks, were investigated. All animals reliably displayed stereotyped activites, in the form of repeated chain pulling, during the interval between food...

  17. Effect of differential rearing on the behavioral and adrenocortical response of lambs to a novel environment

    Contributor(s):: Moberg, G. P., Wood, V. A.

    When lambs (14 days old) were placed in an open space, those reared in isolation were more withdrawn (were slow to begin moving, vocalized infrequently and avoided new objects) than lambs reared with dams or with other lambs. The difference in response was less pronounced when all lambs were...

  18. Problems associated with the interpretation of physiological data in the assessment of animal welfare

    Contributor(s):: Rushen, J.

  19. Studies on oral stereotypies in restricted-fed broiler breeders

    Contributor(s):: Savory, C. J.

  20. Repeated transport and isolation during pregnancy in ewes: differential effects on emotional reactivity and weight of their offspring

    Contributor(s):: Roussel-Huchette, S., Hemsworth, P. H., Boissy, A., Duvaux-Ponter, C.

    The aim of this experiment was to study the effects of different stressors applied to pregnant ewes during the last third of pregnancy on the emotional reactivity of their lambs. Forty ewes were subjected twice a week during the last 6 weeks of gestation to 10 sessions of isolation (ISOL, n=20)...
