  1. Between Freedom and Abandonment: Social Representations of Free-Roaming Donkeys in the Brazilian Northeast

    Contributor(s):: Perozzi Gameiro, Mariana Bombo, Clancy, Cara, Zanella, Adroaldo José

    The presence of free-roaming donkeys on Brazilian Northeastern roads has significant welfare and safety implications for both humans and animals. Working donkeys have played an important historical role in regional development and are considered a cultural symbol of the Brazilian Northeast, as...

  6. Skin diseases of different etiology in dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Stolbova, O. A.

  7. Interaction between sows’ aggressiveness post mixing and skin lesions recorded several weeks later

    | Contributor(s):: Tönepöhl, Björn, Appel, Anne K., Voß, Barbara, König von Borstel, Uta, Gauly, Matthias

    Group housing of pigs leads inevitably to more or less serious agonistic interactions during the establishment of the social rank order of the group. In order to reduce the number of severe agonistic interactions and thus the negative effects on well-being and performance, the use of genetic...

  8. He⿿s getting under my skin! Comparing the sensitivity and specificity of dermal vs subcuticular lesions as a measure of aggression in mice

    | Contributor(s):: Gaskill, Brianna N., Stottler, Aurora, Pritchett-Corning, Kathleen R., Wong, Lilian K., Geronimo, Jerome, Garner, Joseph P.

    Aggression is the leading cause of death in young laboratory mice, representing a major welfare issue. Many of the experimental measures used in traditional aggression research, especially those focusing on territorial aggression (e.g., resident/intruder) are poorly suited to examining dominance...

  9. Application of the welfare quality protocol in pig slaughterhouses of five countries

    | Contributor(s):: Dalmau, A., Nande, A., Vieira-Pinto, M., Zamprogna, S., Martino, G. di, Ribas, J. C. R., Costa, M. P. da, Halinen-Elemo, K., Velarde, A.

    The objective of the present study is to assess the variability of the measures used in the welfare quality (WQ) protocol for pigs among slaughterhouses in five different countries and to propose alarm and critical thresholds for the calculation of scores for future development of an animal...

  10. Welfare effects of a disease eradication programme for dairy goats

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Muri, K., Leine, N., Valle, P. S.

    The Norwegian dairy goat industry has largely succeeded in controlling caprine arthritis encephalitis (CAE), caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) and paratuberculosis through a voluntary disease eradication programme called Healthier Goats (HG). The aim of this study was to apply an on-farm welfare...

  11. Técnicas reconstrutivas em cirurgia oncológica de canídeos e felídeos

    | Contributor(s):: Alexandre Margarido Pargana

    Actualmente, a doença oncológica é uma das principais causas de morte em canídeos e felídeos. A cirurgia é o método mais antigo e, ainda hoje, de maior sucesso no tratamento de neoplasias, podendo também ser usada como método...

  12. Dermatite atópica canina : impacto na qualidade de vida do doente e seus donos

    | Contributor(s):: Catarina Isabel Ramalho de Oliveira Ruivo

    A dermatite atópica canina (DAC) é uma doença cutânea pruriginosa, crónica, recorrente e multifactorial, sendo muito semelhante à doença no Homem, não só quanto à existência de uma hiperreactividade imunológica, mas...

  14. Refinement of biomarker pentosidine methodology for use on aging birds

    | Contributor(s):: Cooey, C. K., Fallo, J. A., Avery, M. L., Anderson, J. T., Falkenstei, E. A., Klandorf, H.

  15. Agonistic behaviour, skin lesions and activity pattern of entire male, female and castrated male finishing pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Bunger, B., Schrader, L., Schrade, H., Zacharias, B.

    Fattening of intact boars is the least invasive alternative to the detrimental welfare effects of surgical castration of piglets. However, beside problems such as boar taint the divergent agonistic and sexual behaviour of boars may impair the pigs' welfare during fattening. To evaluate the...

  16. Behaviour, wounds, weight loss and adrenal weight of rabbit does as affected by semi-group housing

    | Contributor(s):: Buijs, S., Maertens, L., Hermans, K., Vangeyte, J., Tuyttens, F. A. M.

    Group housing is often assumed to improve the welfare of gregarious species. Whether this is actually the case depends on the advantages (e.g. more opportunity for social and locomotor behaviour) and disadvantages (e.g. increased fighting and wounding) induced by the specific housing type. We...

  17. Straw applications in growing pigs: effects on behavior, straw use and growth

    | Contributor(s):: Bulens, A., Beirendonck, S. van, Thielen, J. van, Buys, N., Driessen, B.

    The short-term effects of four straw applications on pigs housed on slatted floors were investigated to determine differences in behavior, straw use and growth. Both the type of straw used and the design of the application might influence the attractiveness and effectiveness of the applications....

  18. Animals may act as social buffers: Skin conductance arousal in children with autism spectrum disorder in a social context

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: O'Haire, Marguerite E., McKenzie, Samantha J., Beck, Alan M., Slaughter, Virginia

    Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience high rates of social stress and anxious arousal. Preliminary evidence suggests that companion animals can act as buffers against the adverse effects of social stress in adults. We measured continuous physiological arousal in children with...

  19. Simple solutions

  20. Analysis of the phenotypic link between behavioural traits at mixing and increased long-term social stability in group-housed pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Desire, S., Turner, S. P., D'Eath, R. B., Doeschl-Wilson, A. B., Lewis, C. R. G., Roehe, R.

    Mixing of growing pigs results in aggressive contests between group members. As aggression serves to establish dominance relationships, it is possible that increased initial aggression may facilitate the formation of social hierarchies. The objective of the study was to investigate whether there...
