  4. Assessment of mental stress in warmblood horses: heart rate variability in comparison to heart rate and selected behavioural parameters

    Contributor(s):: Rietmann, T. R., Stuart, A. E. A., Bernasconi, P., Stauffacher, M., Auer, J. A., Weishaupt, M. A.

    The aim of the study was to investigate whether heart rate variability (HRV) could assess alterations of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) at different levels of excitement. The behavioural and physiological responses of 20 warmblood horses to a challenging ground exercise task were studied....

  5. Characterising the emotional reactivity of cows to understand and predict their stress reactions to the slaughter procedure

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

    The present study on 32 Normand cows evaluated whether it is possible to identify, during rearing, individuals likely to be relatively reactive to the slaughter procedure. It evaluated further which factors may contribute to stress during the pre-slaughter period. Behavioural and physiological...

  6. Analysis of child-dog play behavior in child psychiatry

    Contributor(s):: Prothmann, A., Albrecht, K., Dietrich, S., Hornfeck, U., Stieber, S., Ettrich, C.

This study examines whether characteristic interaction patterns exist during pet-facilitated therapy with dogs, and whether...

  7. The effect of swimming with dolphins on human well-being and anxiety

    Contributor(s):: Webb, N. L., Drummond, P. D.

    The present investigation aimed to explore the psychological effects for humans of swimming with dolphins as opposed to swimming in the ocean without dolphins. It was hypothesized that people swimming with dolphins would experience significantly greater levels of well-being and reduced levels of...

  8. Associations between open-field behaviour and stress-induced hyperthermia in two breeds of sheep

    Contributor(s):: Pedernera-Romano, C., Torre, J. R. de la, Badiella, L., Manteca, X.

The open-field test (OFT) is the most widely used test to measure fearfulness in animals. The induction of psychological...

    Contributor(s):: Siracusa, C., Manteca, X., Ceron, J., Martinez-Subiela, S., Cuenca, R., Lavin, S., Garcia, F., Pastor, J.

    The aim of this trial was to describe the behavioural, neuroendocrine, immune and acute phase stress responses in dogs undergoing elective surgery in normal, clinical practice conditions. Sixteen dogs were submitted to elective orchiectomy or ovariohysterectomy using a standardised surgical...

  10. Welfare implications of culling red deer ( Cervus elaphus )

    Contributor(s):: Bradshaw, E. L., Bateson, P.

    Welfare costs of culling of red deer by rifle ('stalking') or by hunting with hounds ('hunting') were compared in southwestern England. Observations of hunts revealed that likely stressors such as close proximity to humans and hounds, active pursuit, noise, obstruction and physical restraint...
