  2. The welfare of ducks during foie gras production

    Contributor(s):: Rochlitz, I., Broom, D. M.

  3. Social Enterprise as a Model to Improve Live Release and Euthanasia Rates in Animal Shelters

    Contributor(s):: Thomsen, J., Thomsen, B., Copeland, K., Coose, S., Blackwell, S., Dante, V.

  4. Occupational Health of Animal Shelter Employees by Live Release Rate, Shelter Type, and Euthanasia-Related Decision

    Contributor(s):: Andrukonis, Allison, Protopopova, Alexandra

    Approximately a quarter of dogs and cats in animal shelters in the United States are euthanized. The stress associated with having to care for animals they subsequently euthanize puts animal shelter workers at a high risk for compassion fatigue, burnout, and even suicide. The aim of the present...

  5. Application of the welfare quality protocol in pig slaughterhouses of five countries

    | Contributor(s):: Dalmau, A., Nande, A., Vieira-Pinto, M., Zamprogna, S., Martino, G. di, Ribas, J. C. R., Costa, M. P. da, Halinen-Elemo, K., Velarde, A.

    The objective of the present study is to assess the variability of the measures used in the welfare quality (WQ) protocol for pigs among slaughterhouses in five different countries and to propose alarm and critical thresholds for the calculation of scores for future development of an animal...

  6. Lead from spent ammunition: a source of exposure and poisoning in bald eagles

    | Contributor(s):: Cruz-Martinez, L., Redig, P. T., Deen, J.

  7. Dietary fatty acid composition significantly influenced the proactive-reactive behaviour of Senegalese sole ( Solea senegalensis) post-larvae

    | Contributor(s):: Ibarra-Zatarain, Z., Morais, S., Bonacic, K., Campoverde, C., Duncan, N.

    Few studies have examined the influence of diet on larval proactive-reactive behavioural dimension of stress coping style responses. The present study evaluated the influence of using different vegetables oils (Linseed; Soybean; Olive) and fish oil (Cod liver) for Artemia metanauplii nutritional...

  8. The power of automated behavioural homecage technologies in characterizing disease progression in laboratory mice: a review

    | Contributor(s):: Richardson, C. A.

    Behavioural changes that occur as animals become sick have been characterized in a number of species and include the less frequent occurrence of 'luxury behaviours' such as playing, grooming and socialization. 'Sickness behaviours' or behavioural changes following exposure to infectious agents,...

  9. Outdoor housing of laboratory dogs: effects on activity, behaviour and physiology

    | Contributor(s):: Spangenberg, E. M. F., Bjorklund, L., Dahlborn, K.

    Laboratory dogs are mainly housed indoors and outdoor housing is often considered to be an insecure and uncontrollable alternative. This study aimed to assess the effects of outdoor housing of laboratory dogs on their general physiology, activity and activity-related behaviours. Eight male...

  10. Evaluation of the acute phase protein haptoglobin as an indicator of herd health in slaughter pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Berg, A. van den, Danuser, J., Frey, J., Regula, G.

    Health is an important aspect of animal welfare, which is difficult to assess at herd level. Clinical examination of individual animals is time-consuming, and most measures of clinical herd health depend significantly on the examiner. Acute phase proteins are produced during inflammatory...

  11. Vitamin A metabolism in recessive white canaries

    | Contributor(s):: Wolf, P., Bartels, T., Sallmann, H. P., Heisler, K., Kamphues, J.

    In recent years, a possible defect in vitamin A metabolism in recessive white canaries (Serinus canaria) has been repeatedly discussed. It has widely been accepted that a reduced absorption of carotenoids from the small intestine results in an insufficient synthesis of vitamin A. Moreover, the...
