  2. Evaluating stress in riding horses: part one - behavior assessment and serum cortisol

    | Contributor(s):: Hovey, M. R., Davis, A., Chen, S., Godwin, P., Porr, C. A. S.

    Stress can impact the health and well-being of animals negatively. Behavioral and physiological changes, particularly serum cortisol, offer objective and easy-to-use methods of evaluating stress in horses. However, limited studies support a positive relationship between changes in...

  3. Evaluation of pharmacokinetics and efficacy of ivermectin following oral administration in dogs against experimental infection of Ctenocephalides felis felis and Rhipicephalus sanguineus

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Magalhaes, V. S., Cid, Y. P., Ferreira, T. P., Medeiros, D. M. V., Batista, L. C. de S. O., Correia, T. R., Albert, A. L. M., Scott, F. B.

    With the increasing number of pets in home the human-animal relationship is increasingly close and care about control disease growing. Ivermectin (IVM) is frequently used because its proven safety. IVM is recommended for the treatment of demodectic scabies and prevention of heartworm in dogs, but...

  4. Dairy calves' preference for rearing substrate

    | Contributor(s):: Worth, G. M., Schutz, K. E., Stewart, M., Cave, V. M., Foster, M., Sutherland, M. A.

    Traditional substrate types for dairy calves, such as sawdust, are becoming difficult and/or expensive for farmers to obtain in New Zealand. Therefore, there is a need to evaluate alternative rearing substrates that provide an acceptable level of animal welfare. The preference of dairy calves for...

  5. A multidisciplinary approach to assess the welfare of weaned pigs during transport at three space allowances

    | Contributor(s):: Sutherland, M. A., Bryer, P. J., Davis, B. L., McGlone, J. J.

    Transport can be a stressful experience for pigs, especially in pigs simultaneously experiencing weaning stress. The objective of this study was to use a multidisciplinary approach to assess the welfare of weaned pigs during transport at 3 space allowances. A commercial semitrailer, fitted with...

  6. Calcium and other ions in blood and skeleton of Nicaraguan fresh-water shark

    | Contributor(s):: Marshall R. Urist

    The bull shark, Carcharhinus lellcas, employing archaic but effective means of regulating the physical-chemical composition of its body fluids, thrives in tropical fresh-water rivers and lakes. The ionic strength of the serum and the concentrations of total solutes, calcium, urea, and other ions...

  7. Voluntary ingestion of buprenorphine in mice

    | Contributor(s):: Jacobsen, K. R., Kalliokoski, O., Hau, J., Abelson, K. S. P.

    Buprenorphine is a widely used analgesic for laboratory rodents. Administration of the drug in a desirable food item for voluntary ingestion is an attractive way to administer the drug non-invasively. However, it is vital that the animals ingest the buprenorphine-food-item mix as desired. The...

  8. Blood concentrations of serotonin, cortisol and dehydroepiandrosterone in aggressive dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Rosado, B., Garcia-Belenguer, S., Leon, M., Chacon, G., Villegas, A., Palacio, J.

    Canine aggression directed towards people is the most frequent reason for referral to behaviour practices. In order to provide new and improved diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for this problem, it is necessary to make an in-depth investigation of the biological basis of aggression in this...

  9. Assessment of different stunning methods and recovery of farmed Atlantic salmon ( Salmo salar ): isoeugenol, nitrogen and three levels of carbon dioxide

    | Contributor(s):: Erikson, U.

    Isoeugenol (17 mg AQUI-STM L-1), nitrogen, and three levels of carbon dioxide (low: 70-80, medium: 180-250 and high: >400 mg CO2 L-1) were tested as stunning agents for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) fasted for six days. All methods were tested under optimised conditions (starting with rested...

  10. Comparison of effects of different methods of culling red deer ( Cervus elaphus ) by shooting on behaviour and post mortem measurements of blood chemistry, muscle glycogen and carcase characteristics

    | Contributor(s):: Cockram, M. S., Shaw, D. J., Milne, E., Bryce, R., McClean, C., Daniels, M. J.

    Methods for culling wild red deer (Cervus elaphus) were compared by observing behaviour and collecting post mortem samples from wild deer shot (i) by a single stalker during daytime; (ii) by more than one stalker during daytime; (iii) by using a helicopter for the deployment of stalkers and...

  11. Live chilling of turbot and subsequent effect on behaviour, muscle stiffness, muscle quality, blood gases and chemistry

    | Contributor(s):: Roth, B., Imsland, A. K., Foss, A.

    During the commercial slaughter of farmed turbot (Scophthalmus maximus), a total of 67 fish were, on six occasions, removed from their rearing conditions at 14 degrees C and put, as is standard commercial practice, into chilled seawater (-1.5 to -0.8 degrees C) to monitor behavioural, muscular,...
