  1. Buying habits in pet owners (dogs) on vaccination practices

    Contributor(s):: Sandra Milena Beltran Ochoa

    This paper aims to validate the importance of the approach that multinational pharmaceutical companies should have to the final purchasers of vaccines and veterinary products. Through market research, it is proven that ordinary people are not aware of the health care they should have with their...

  2. Breaking down the silos in human and animal medicine

    Contributor(s):: Marisa Beckett, Michael Chi Yee, Kyle O'Neill, Julie M. Fagan

    Human and animal medicine has long been viewed as distinct fields; despite having one huge similarity - medicine. The lack of sharing amongst the disciplines, the lack of shared knowledge, and the lack of communication all contribute to this silo-ization between human and animal medicine. Online...

  3. Dose of reality : what can we learn from educational and veterinary pet owners to guide more effective environmental stewardship of pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs)?

    Contributor(s):: Jennifer Lam

    Improper disposal of unused human and pet pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) are an emerging public and watershed health threat around the world. Although some waste stream reduction programs such as PPCPs "take-back" exist, there is limited research in current programs...

  10. Canine fears and phobias; a regime for treatment without recourse to drugs

    Contributor(s):: Rogerson, J.

    From a study of 247 (102 male dogs and 145 bitches) case histories presenting varying degrees of fear and phobia, both generalised and specific, it has been possible to define standard patterns of behaviour. This was done on the basis of severity of the fear, the type of fear response displayed...

  11. The involvement of dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) in stress-induced stereotypies in bank voles ( Clethrionomys glareolus )

    Contributor(s):: Schoenecker, B., Heller, K. E.

    In order to clarify the dependency of stress-induced stereotypies on dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) functioning, undisturbed and acutely stressed stereotyping bank voles were treated during 3 weeks with the commonly used human atypical neurolepticum clozapine and the SSRI antidepressant...

  14. Effect of cholecystokinin receptor antagonists on voluntary food intake in chickens

    Contributor(s):: Rodriguez-Sinovas, A., Manteca, X., Fernandez, A. G., Fernandez, E., Gonalons, E.

    The effect of cholecystokinin (CCK) receptor antagonists (L-364718 and L-365260) and of diazepam on voluntary feed intake in chickens was studied. L-365260 significantly increased cumulative feed intake at 30 and 60 min, whereas L-364718 had no effect. Diazepam also increased feed intake at 30...

  15. Assessing fear of novel and startling stimuli in domestic dogs

    Contributor(s):: Ley, J., Coleman, G. J., Holmes, R., Hemsworth, P. H.

    Dog attacks on humans are a community issue and, while defensive and offensive aggression are implicated, little is known about the motivational basis of these attacks. Defensive aggression arising from fear may be implicated in some attacks and thus research on measuring fear in dogs is clearly...

    Contributor(s):: Otto, K. A., Short, C. E.

  17. Traits and genotypes may predict the successful training of drug detection dogs

    Contributor(s):: Maejima, M., Inoue-Murayama, M., Tonosaki, K., Matsuura, N., Kato, S., Saito, Y., Weiss, A., Murayama, Y., Ito, S.

    In Japan, approximately 30% of dogs that enter training programs to become drug detection dogs successfully complete training. To clarify factors related to the aptitude of drug detection dogs and develop an assessment tool, we evaluated genotypes and behavioural traits of 197 candidate dogs. The...

  18. The effect of naloxone on nursing behavior in Brahman calves

    Contributor(s):: Lay, D. C., Jr., Friend, T. H., Dellmeier, G. R., Randel, R. D., Bowers, C. L., Mal, M. E., Zavala, P.

    In 3 experiments in which calves were injected s.c. with saline or naloxone (at 1, 1.5 or 3 mg/kg body wt), no significant effects of naloxone on sucking behaviour were observed, although there was a tendency for naloxone-treated calves to spend less time sucking than did saline-treated calves....
