From Moctezuma’s zoo to animals kept in captivity at Teotihuacan, there is increasing evidence that Mesoamericans managed wild animals for a myriad of purposes. The present study situates ritualized animal management of highly symbolic fauna in the broader context of Classic Mesoamerica...
Evaluating the physical welfare of dogs in commercial breeding facilities in the United States
out of 5 stars
| Contributor(s):: Moriah J. Hurt, Candace Croney (adviser)
Despite high levels of public concern, the state of commercial breeding (CB) dog welfare is largely unknown. Therefore, this study aimed to characterize the physical welfare of dogs in CB facilities and their environment in Indiana. This study specifically aimed 1) to characterize dog foot...
A 'long-fuse domestication' of the horse? Tooth shape suggests explosive change in modern breeds compared to extinct populations and living Przewalski horses
| Contributor(s):: Krish Seetah, Andrea Cardini, Graeme Barker
Archaeological and molecular data suggest that horses were domesticated comparatively recently, the genetic evidence indicating that this was from several maternal haplotypes but only a single paternal one. However, although central to our understanding of how humans and environmental conditions...

The Choice of Diet Affects the Oral Health of the Domestic Cat
| Contributor(s):: Fernando Mata
In this cross-sectional study, the gingivitis and the calculus indices of the teeth of N = 41 cats were used to model oral health as a dependent variable using a Poisson regression. The independent variables used were “quadrant”, “teeth type”, “age”, and...
Human-dog interactions and behavioural responses of village dogs in coastal villages in Michoacan, Mexico
| Contributor(s):: Ruiz-Izaguirre, E., Eilers, K. H. A. M., Bokkers, E. A. M., Ortolani, A., Ortega-Pacheco, A., Boer, I. J. M. de
In Mexican villages, most households keep dogs that roam freely. Therefore, socialisation of village dogs occurs in a different context than that of companion dogs in developed countries. The objectives of this study were: (1) to assess village dogs' behavioural responses towards familiar and...

Pulp cavity-tooth width ratios from known-age and wild-caught coyotes determined by radiography
| Contributor(s):: Frederick F . Knowlton, Susan L . Whittemore
Although the relative sizes of pulp cavities in teeth are used frequently to identify various age classes of carnivores, validation of the technique has received little attention. We measured the pulp cavities and tooth widths based on radiographs of canine and premolar teeth from a large sample...

The effect of two piglet teeth resection procedures on the welfare of sows in farrowing crates. Part 2
| Contributor(s):: Lewis, E., Boyle, L. A., Brophy, P., O'Doherty, J. V., Lynch, P. B.
Recent EU legislation discourages the practice of resecting piglets' needle teeth. However, the effect of leaving piglets' teeth intact on the welfare of sows in farrowing crates is poorly understood. Therefore, the aim of the study was to compare the effects of clipping and grinding piglets'...
The effect of two teeth resection procedures on the welfare of piglets in farrowing crates. Part 1
| Contributor(s):: Lewis, E., Boyle, L. A., Lynch, P. B., Brophy, P., O'Doherty, J. V.
Teeth resection is a method of controlling the injurious effects of the aggression displayed when newborn piglets fight to establish a teat order. Recent European legislation discourages the practice. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of clipping and grinding piglets' needle...
