  1. A seroepidemiological study of canine zoonoses among persons occupationally exposed to dogs

    Contributor(s):: Whitney Sue Krueger, Tara C. Smith (adviser)

    Zoonotic diseases continue to emerge and threaten both human and animal health. Overcrowded shelters and breeding kennels create the perfect environment for amplified infectious disease transmission among dogs and present a critical opportunity for zoonotic pathogens to emerge and threaten...

  2. RandAgiamo TM, a pilot project increasing adoptability of shelter dogs in the Umbria Region (Italy)

    Contributor(s):: Menchetti, L., Mancini, S., Catalani, M. C., Boccini, B., Diverio, S.

    Current Italian legislation does not permit euthanasia of dogs, unless they are ill or dangerous. Despite good intentions and ethical benefits, this "no-kill policy" has caused a progressive overpopulation of dogs in shelters, due to abandonment rates being higher than adoption rates. Shelter...

  3. Whale shark tourism in Ningaloo Marine Park, Australia

    Contributor(s):: Davis, D.

    Surveys conducted among whale shark tourists in Ningaloo Marine Park, off the coast of Western Australia, yielded 464 responses in 1995 and 376 in 1996. Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) is used to compare attitudes towards management questions relating to human-to-shark separation...

  4. Morbidity and mortality of invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals at a major exotic companion animal wholesaler

    Contributor(s):: Ashley, S., Brown, S., Ledford, J., Martin, J., Nash, A. E., Terry, A., Tristan, T., Warwick, C.

    The authors formally investigated a major international wildlife wholesaler and subsequently confiscated more than 26,400 nonhuman animals of 171 species and types. Approximately 80% of the nonhuman animals were identified as grossly sick, injured, or dead, with the remaining in suspected...

  5. Severe intragroup aggressions in captive common marmosets ( Callithrix jacchus )

    Contributor(s):: Filippis, B. de, Chiarotti, F., Vitale, A.

    Members of captive colonies of common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus), a small New World primate, can occasionally be victims of repeated, and potentially fatal, attacks by a family-mate. This study examined the records of a colony, looking for past instances of such aggressions. The aim was to...

  6. Common and emerging infectious diseases in the animal shelter

    Contributor(s):: Pesavento, P. A., Murphy, B. G.

    The beneficial role that animal shelters play is unquestionable. An estimated 3 to 4 million animals are cared for or placed in homes each year, and most shelters promote public health and support responsible pet ownership. It is, nonetheless, inevitable that shelters are prime examples of...

  7. Evaluation of crowding of caged laying hens ( Gallus domesticus ) using fuzzy set decision analysis

    Contributor(s):: Roush, W. B., Bock, R. G., Marszalek, M. A.

    Membership values and their complements were calculated for fuzzy sets of biological responses of laying hens for different levels of population density. Biological responses were egg production, mortality, and serum corticosterone levels of hens associated with population densities of 2, 3, 4, 5...
