  2. High and Hyper: Fentanyl Induces Psychomotor Side-Effects in Healthy Pigs

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Digranes, Nora, Haga, Henning Andreas, Nordgreen, Janicke

    Analgesic effects of fentanyl have been investigated using behavior. The behavioral effects of fentanyl and possible serotonergic influence are largely unknown. We therefore investigated behavioral effects of fentanyl, with or without the serotonin antagonist ketanserin, in pigs. Fourteen...

  9. Prioritization of Farm Animal Welfare Issues Using Expert Consensus

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Fiona C. Rioja-Lang, Melanie Connor, Heather J. Bacon, Alistair B. Lawrence, Cathy M. Dwyer

    Prioritization of animal welfare issues can help identify which areas most require research funding and raise awareness of best practices. A modified Delphi method was used to obtain expert opinion on the highest priority welfare issues for UK farmed livestock. Fifty-eight UK-based experts were...

  10. Animal welfare and its assossiations with farm size and stockmanship characteristics on European breeding-to-finishing pig farms

    | Contributor(s):: Ruckli, A. K., Dippel, S., Helmerichs, J., Hubbard, C., Munsterhjelm, C., Vermeer, H., Leeb, C.

  11. Refining restraint techniques for research pigs through habituation

    | Contributor(s):: O'Malley, C. I., Hubley, R., Tambadou, H., Turner, P. V.

    Pigs are common research models and are strong animals that can be difficult to restrain. Improper restraint can put pigs and research personnel at risk for injury and induce stress, which can affect research outcomes. This study aimed to refine restraint techniques for research pigs using...

  12. Farmyard Animal or Best Friend? Exploring Predictors of Dog vs. Pig Pet Speciesism

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Sarah Gradidge, Magdalena Zawisza, Annelie J. Harvey, Daragh T. McDermott

    Despite dogs’ and pigs’ shared similarities, previous research indicates people favor dogs over pigs (known as “pet speciesism”). While pet speciesism has been empirically sup-ported, little is known about its predictors. This gap in the literature is problematic as...

  17. Cross-fostering alters the post-weaning pig behavioral stress response in a sex-specific manner

    | Contributor(s):: Byrd, Christopher J., Young, Jennifer M., Sommer, Dominique M.

    The purpose of the current study was to evaluate whether early postnatal stress due to cross-fostering alters the behavioral response to stress in weaned pigs. We hypothesized that piglets who were cross-fostered (FOS) into another existing litter would exhibit heightened behavioral indicators of...

  18. Pigs' skin lesions at weaning are primarily caused by standoff and being bullied instead of unilateral active attack at the individual level

    | Contributor(s):: Liu, Mingzheng, Xu, Qinglei, Zhao, Jing, Guo, Yanli, Zhang, Chunlei, Cheng, Meng, Zhao, Xianle, Schinckel, Allan P., Zhou, Bo

    To evaluate the relationship between skin lesion scores and aggressive behavior categories (unilateral active attack, standoff, and being bullied) of individual pigs when placed into pens after weaning, duration and frequency of three aggressive behavior categories were observed from video....
