    Contributor(s):: MacRae, A. M., McGreevy, P., Daros, R. R., Fraser, D.

  4. Do rabbits need each other? Effects of single versus paired housing on rabbit body temperature and behaviour in a UK shelter

    Contributor(s):: Burn, C. C., Shields, P.

  5. The Right Angle: Validating a standardised protocol for the use of infra-red thermography of eye temperature as a welfare indicator

  6. The concept of behavioural needs in contemporary fur science: do we know what American mink (Mustela vison) really need?

    Contributor(s):: Kornum, A. L., Rocklinsberg, H., Gjerris, M.

  7. Caring for the horse in a cold climate—Reviewing principles for thermoregulation and horse preferences

    Contributor(s):: Mejdell, Cecilie M., Bøe, Knut Egil, Jørgensen, Grete H. M.

    In the Nordic countries, permanent outdoor housing of horses in winter is gaining popularity. This practice will expose the horses to harsh weather conditions. However, horses that are kept indoors at night and turned out in the cold during daytime also experience thermoregulatory challenges....

  8. Which Wild Aardvarks Are Most Suitable for Outdoor Enclosures in Zoological Gardens in the European Union?

    Contributor(s):: Patoka, Jiří, Vejtrubová, Markéta, Vrabec, Vladimír, Masopustová, Renata

    The aardvark is popular in many zoological gardens in the European Union. These creatures are nocturnal, and aardvarks in the wild are known to walk distances of 4 km to 7 km per night. Despite what is known about their biology, most aardvarks are kept in zoological gardens in indoor enclosures...

  9. Drinking behaviour in sows kept outdoors during the winter months

    Contributor(s):: Andersen, Heidi Mai-Lis, Pedersen, Lene Juul

    In the light of the EU regulation, “pigs must have permanent access to a sufficient quantity of fresh water” and the practical problems it provides farmers during winter to keep water free of ice, the aim of this study was to investigate the influence of periods with frost on the diurnal pattern...

  10. Nursing females are more prone to heat stress: Demography matters when managing flying-foxes for climate change

    Contributor(s):: Snoyman, Stephanie, Muhic, Jasmina, Brown, Culum

    Determining the underlying mechanisms responsible for species-specific responses to climate change is important from a species management perspective. The grey-headed flying-fox, Pteropus poliocephalus, is listed as vulnerable but it also a significant pest species for orchardists and thereby...

  11. Effect of increasing temperature on space requirements of group housed finishing pigs

    Contributor(s):: Spoolder, Hans A. M., Aarnink, André A. J., Vermeer, Herman M., van Riel, Johan, Edwards, Sandra A.

    For groups of pigs to cope adequately with their housing conditions they need sufficient static space (occupied by the body of the pig), activity space (for movement between different functional areas and behaviours relating to these) and interaction space (for appropriate social behaviour)....

  12. Lighting environment: What colour of light do male C57BL/6J prefer?

    Contributor(s):: Paronis, Efthymios, Kapogiannatou, Aspasia, Paschidis, Konstantinos, Stasinopoulou, Marianna, Alexakos, Pavlos, Skaliora, Irini, Kostomitsopoulos, Nikolaos G.

    Environmental factors applied in animal research facilities need to be regulated accurately not only for the welfare of laboratory animals but also for the reliability of the experimental results. However, the effect of lighting environment and its characteristics on animals has been poorly...

  13. Effect of light colour temperature and intensity on τhε behaviour of male C57CL/6J mice

    Contributor(s):: Kapogiannatou, Aspasia, Paronis, Efthymios, Paschidis, Konstantinos, Polissidis, Alexia, Kostomitsopoulos, Nikolaos G.

    Light is an important environmental factor affecting laboratory animals' well-being but still there is a range of light parameters in animal research facilities that need further study. Behavioural testing was conducted to study the impact of different conditions of light colour temperature and...

  14. Can changes in nasal temperature be used as an indicator of emotional state in cows?

    Contributor(s):: Proctor, Helen, Carder, Gemma

    Good animal welfare considers not only the physical and environmental aspects of an animal’s well-being, but also their emotional state. Finding measures of animal emotions is an important area of research, as there is a need for objective, reliable and non-invasive measures to assess how an...

  15. Environmental and Physiological Factors Associated With Stamina in Dogs Exercising in High Ambient Temperatures

    Contributor(s):: Patrick J. Robbins, Meghan T. Ramos, Brian M. Zanghi, Cynthia M. Otto

    This IACUC approved study was performed to evaluate the environmental, physiological, and hematological components that contribute to stamina following successive bouts of exercise that included searching (5-min), agility (5-min), and ball retrieve (<10-min). Regularly exercised dogs (N= 12)...

  16. Does body condition affect immediate post-capture survival of ungulates?

    Contributor(s):: Bender, Louis C.

  17. Canine Co-Facilitated Interventions

    Forum › general-discussion › new-initiatives--projects

    Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey and I am a social worker in West Michigan who frequently co-facilitates therapy with adults, juveniles, and couples using my nearly 2 year old pit bull Marley....

  18. Genetic study of stress assessed with infrared thermography during dressage competitions in the Pura Raza Espanol horse

    Contributor(s):: Sánchez, María José, Bartolomé, Ester, Valera, Mercedes

    Despite the fact that physiological parameters in dressage are important because of their close connection to human-horse accidents, performance and welfare, these parameters are only rarely included in horse breeding programs. In Spain, the Pura Raza Espanol horse (PRE) Breeding Program focuses...

  19. On-farm evaluation of the Salmon Welfare Index Model (SWIM 1.0): theoretical and practical considerations

    Contributor(s):: Folkedal, O., Pettersen, J. M., Bracke, M., Stien, L. H., Nilsson, J., Martins, C., Breck, O., Midtlyng, P. J., Kristiansen, T.

    The present study investigated the operational feasibility of the recently developed Salmon Welfare Index Model (SWIM 1.0) designed for Atlantic salmon ( Salmo salar L) in production cages. Ten salmon farms containing spring smolts were visited twice, first between May and June the first year in...

  20. Effects of maternal vocalisations on the domestic chick stress response

    Contributor(s):: Edgar, J., Kelland, I., Held, S., Paul, E., Nicol, C.

    Although natural brooding is not commercially feasible, there is great potential to simulate aspects of maternal care to improve the welfare of farmed domestic chicks. Our previous studies showed that the presence of calm broody hens can buffer mild stress responses in chicks, although the...
