  2. Animal-assisted therapy: New disinfectant list of DVG for "Established veterinary practice and animal shelters "Tiergestutzte Therapien: Neue Desinfektionsmittelliste der DVG fur die Bereiche "Niedergelassene Veterinarpraxis und Tierheime"

    Contributor(s):: Rheinbaben, F. von, Werner, S.

    This article presents a list of some of the veterinary disinfectants/drugs recommended by the German Veterinary Society for private animal hospitals and animal shelters highlighting the indications, efficacy, metabolism, dosage effects, and pharmokinetics of each product.

  3. Cardiorespiratory and Biomechanical Responses to Simulated Recreational Horseback Riding in Healthy Children

    Contributor(s):: Rigby, Brandon R., Papadakis, Zacharias, Bane, Annie A., Park, Jin K., Grandjean, Peter W.

  4. Scientific update

    Contributor(s):: Mangels, Reed

  5. Evaluation of a Pet-Assisted Living Intervention for Improving Functional Status in Assisted Living Residents With Mild to Moderate Cognitive Impairment: A Pilot Study

    Contributor(s):: Friedmann, Erika, Galik, Elizabeth, Thomas, Sue A., Hall, P. Sue, Chung, Seon Yoon, McCune, Sandra

  6. Nutritional ecology of obesity: from humans to companion animals

    Contributor(s):: Raubenheimer, D., Machovsky-Capuska, G. E., Gosby, A. K., Simpson, S.

    We apply nutritional geometry, a framework for modelling the interactive effects of nutrients on animals, to help understand the role of modern environments in the obesity pandemic. Evidence suggests that humans regulate the intake of protein energy (PE) more strongly than non-protein energy...

  7. Young Blond d'Aquitaine, Angus and Limousin bulls differ in emotional reactivity: relationships with animal traits, stress reactions at slaughter and post-mortem muscle metabolism

    Contributor(s):: Bourguet, C., Deiss, V., Boissy, A., Terlouw, E. M. C.

    The present study investigated relationships between reactivity during tests, stress reactions at slaughter and animal traits in young Blond d'Aquitaine (BA), Limousin (LI) and Angus (AN) bulls. Behavioural and physiological reactivity of animals was evaluated during rearing using a "Human test"...

  8. Sniffer dogs as part of a bimodal bionic research approach to develop a lung cancer screening

    Contributor(s):: Boedeker, E., Friedel, G., Walles, T.

  9. Development and validation of a behavioral acclimation protocol for cats to respiration chambers used for indirect calorimetry studies

    Contributor(s):: Gooding, M. A., Duncan, I. J. H., Atkinson, J. L., Shoveller, A. K.

    Cats exposed to novel environments initiate stress responses by behavioral and physiological changes that modify metabolism and lead to the collection of unreliable data. Fourteen cats (10+or-2 months) were subjected to an 11-week acclimation procedure to adapt to restriction within chambers used...

  10. Nutritional and behavioral effects of gorge and fast feeding in captive lions

    Contributor(s):: Altman, J. D., Gross, K. L., Lowry, S. R.

    Nonhuman animals in captivity manifest behaviors and physiological conditions that are not common in the wild. Lions in captivity face problems of obesity, inactivity, and stereotypy. To mediate common problems of captive lions, this study implemented a gorge and fast feeding schedule that better...

  11. The effects of chronic exposure to common bedding materials on the metabolic rate and overall health of male CD-1 mice

    Contributor(s):: Becker, C. E., Mathur, C. F., Rehnberg, B. G.

    Anecdotes and personal Web pages claim that cedar and pine beddings cause respiratory distress in rodents, although no previous research could be found to support these claims. There have, however, been published studies of respiratory distress in cedar and pine mill workers. That research links...

  12. Effects of chronic intake of starch-, glucose- and fructose-containing diets on eating behaviour in adult minipigs

    Contributor(s):: Ochoa, M., Malbert, C. H., Lalles, J. P., Bobillier, E., Val-Laillet, D.

    Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess whether chronic intake of isocaloric high-fat diets differing partly in the source of carbohydrates (starch, glucose or fructose) and fed at the same level of intake impacts eating behaviour in the adult Yucatan minipig. Methods: Adult minipigs...

  13. Linking risk taking and the behavioral and metabolic responses to confinement stress in gilthead seabream Sparus aurata

    Contributor(s):: Herrera, M., Castanheira, M. F., Conceicao, L. E. C., Martins, C. I.

    Risk taking and avoidance responses during confinement have been identified in a variety of species, including fish. In addition, differences in metabolic rate have also been attributed to divergent personalities, coping styles or behavioral types. In this study we disclose for the first time a...

  14. Number of nearby visitors and noise level affect vigilance in captive koalas

    Contributor(s):: Larsen, M. J., Sherwen, S. L., Rault, J. L.

    Understanding human-animal interactions is particularly important for institutions that display animals to the public due to the frequent, and sometimes intense, interactions with unfamiliar humans. Past research has shown that visitors can have a negative impact on the welfare of a wide range of...

  15. Feeding Zoology. How Animals were Fed in Nineteenth-Century Zoology

    Contributor(s):: Reiß, Christian

  16. Activity patterns in reindeer with domestic vs. wild ancestry

    Contributor(s):: Reimers, E., Tsegaye, D., Colman, J. E., Eftestol, S.

    We analyzed GPS-based activity patterns for two wild reindeer ( Rangifer tarandus tarandus) herds: Norefjell-Reinsjofjell with domestic ancestry and larger average body size and Rondane with wild ancestry and smaller body sizes. We compared activity patterns and tested whether these could...

    Contributor(s):: Kimberly Terrell

    Teratospermia (ejaculation of ≥ 60% structurally abnormal spermatozoa) is prevalent among felids facing extinction risk, including the cheetah. This trait also occurs in certain domestic cat populations, providing a valuable research model. Multiple components of sperm function are disrupted in...
