  1. Domestic horses (Equus caballus) prefer to approach humans displaying a submissive body posture rather than a dominant body posture

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Amy Victoria Smith, Clara Wilson, Karen McComb, Leanne Proops

    Signals of dominance and submissiveness are central to conspecific communication in many species. For domestic animals, sensitivities to these signals in humans may also be beneficial. We presented domestic horses with a free choice between two unfamiliar humans, one adopting a submissive and...

  2. Innovative robotic hippotherapy improves postural muscle size and postural stability during the quiet stance and gait initiation in a child with cerebral palsy: A single case study

    | Contributor(s):: Park, J. H., You, J. S. H.

  3. Effect of Hippotherapy on Motor Proficiency and Function in Children with Cerebral Palsy Who Walk

    | Contributor(s):: Champagne, D., Corriveau, H., Dugas, C.

  4. Dog Experts' Brains Distinguish Socially Relevant Body Postures Similarly in Dogs and Humans

    | Contributor(s):: Miiamaaria V. Kujala, Jan Kujala, Synnöve Carlson, Riitta Hari

    We read conspecifics' social cues effortlessly, but little is known about our abilities to understand social gestures of other species. To investigate the neural underpinnings of such skills, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging to study the brain activity of experts and non-experts...

  5. Thai elephant‐assisted therapy programme in children with Down syndrome

    | Contributor(s):: Satiansukpong, Nuntanee, Pongsaksri, Maethisa, Sasat, Daranee

  6. Intervention for an Adolescent With Cerebral Palsy During Period of Accelerated Growth

    | Contributor(s):: Reubens, R., Silkwood-Sherer, D. J.

  7. Use of Hippotherapy With a Boy After Traumatic Brain Injury: A Case Study

    | Contributor(s):: Erdman, E. A.

  8. The Efficacy of Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies on Improving Physical Function

    | Contributor(s):: Rigby, B. R., Grandjean, P. W.

  9. Changes in Gait Balance and Brain Connectivity in Response to Equine-Assisted Activity and Training in Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

    | Contributor(s):: Hyun, G. J., Jung, T. W., Park, J. H., Kang, K. D., Kim, S. M., Son, Y. D., Cheong, J. H., Kim, B. N., Han, D. H.

  10. Equine therapy as a therapeutic resource: electromyographic analysis of the rectus abdominis and paravertebral muscles during mounts

    | Contributor(s):: Deisire Eckert

    Animal assisted therapy (TAA) is a practice with specific criteria where the animal is the main part of the treatment, aiming to promote the social, emotional, physical and / or cognitive improvement of patients. It assumes that the love and friendship that can arise between humans and animals...

  11. Manifestation of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis in Australian Merino sheep: observations on altered behaviour and growth

    | Contributor(s):: Cronin, G. M., Beganovic, D. F., Sutton, A. L., Palmer, D. J., Thomson, P. C., Tammen, I.

    Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder in children. Presently there is no effective treatment and the disorder is lethal. NCL occur in a variety of non-human species including sheep, which are recognised as valuable large animal models for NCL. This...

  12. Effects of hippotherapy on postural stability in cerebral palsy: report of a case

    | Contributor(s):: Fernández-Gutiérrez, C., Apolo-Arenas, M. D., Martínez-García, Y., Caña-Pino, A.

  13. Assessing walking posture with geometric morphometrics: effects of rearing environment in pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Tallet, C., Seneque, E., Megnin, C., Morisset, S., Val-Laillet, D., Meunier-Salaun, M. C., Fureix, C., Hausberger, M.

    Rearing social animals like pigs in isolation from conspecifics can have consequences on behaviour and physiology. The aim of this experiment was to determine whether rearing conditions affect body posture. We adapted a method for quantitative evaluation of posture based on geometric...

  14. Behavioural responses of broiler chickens during low atmospheric pressure stunning

    | Contributor(s):: Mackie, N., McKeegan, D. E. F.

    Low atmospheric pressure stunning (LAPS) is a new irreversible stunning method for broiler chickens ( Gallus gallus domesticus), which has the potential to improve welfare during routine slaughter. During LAPS, birds are placed in a hypobaric chamber that allows oxygen to be gradually removed...

  15. Effects of stocking rate on measures of efficacy and welfare during argon gas euthanasia of weaned pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Fiedler, K. J., Parsons, R. L., Sadler, L. J., Millman, S. T.

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of chamber stocking rate on facets of animal welfare and efficacy during euthanasia of weaned pigs ( Sus scrofa domesticus) with argon gas. Two hundred and thirty-three weaned pigs designated for euthanasia at a commercial production farm...

  16. Making the case for developing alternative lameness scoring systems for dairy goats

    | Contributor(s):: Vieira, A., Oliveira, M. D., Nunes, T., Stilwell, G.

    Lameness is a behavioural indicator of pain that negatively affects dairy ruminants' health and welfare. Lameness is generally assessed by subjective methods, based on the observation of the animal's behaviour, using numerical rating scales (NRSs) - the most common scoring system - and visual...

  17. Does hippotherapy effect use of sensory information for balance in people with multiple sclerosis?

    | Contributor(s):: Lindroth, J. L.

  18. The effect of four different feeding regimes on rabbit behaviour

    | Contributor(s):: Prebble, J. L., Langford, F. M., Shaw, D. J., Meredith, A. L.

    Dietary composition and presentation impacts on the behaviour of animals, and failure to provide a suitable diet can lead to reduced welfare through the development of poor health, the inability to express normal behaviours and the development of abnormal behaviours. This study assessed the...

  19. Urinary posture and motor laterality in dogs ( Canis lupus familiaris) at two shelters

    | Contributor(s):: Gough, W., McGuire, B.

    Motor laterality is the preference shown for using one limb or lateral half of the body over the other. In domestic dogs, most laterality studies have examined forelimb preferences during staged tasks. We focused instead on hindlimb preferences during urination when males use the raised-leg...

  20. The effect of physical contact between dairy cows and calves during separation on their post-separation behavioural response

    | Contributor(s):: Johnsen, J. F., Ellingsen, K., Grondahl, A. M., Boe, K. E., Lidfors, L., Mejdell, C. M.

    Premature breaking of the maternal bond between a cow and her calf triggers a strong behavioural response which renders separation and weaning major welfare challenges in suckling systems. Fence-line separation and weaning allowing physical contact has been evaluated for beef cattle and is...
