  1. Skin diseases of different etiology in dogs

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

  2. Zoonotic importance of dermatophytosis in dogs and cats

    | Contributor(s):: Cindy Paola Cruz Alcala

    Dermatophytoses are infections caused by dermatophyte fungi of the genus Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Trichophyton, which affect the keratinized tissues of the skin, hair and nails. Dermatophytosis in canines and felines are frequent pathologies that constitute an important mycosis in these...

  3. Detection of Verticillium dahliae in olive groves using canine detection units

    | Contributor(s):: Pons Anglad a, L., Calvo Torras, M. dels A.

    Verticillium wilt is one of the most significant agricultural diseases in the world, in view of the fact that not only does it affect olive groves but also a wide variety of fruit, vegetable and ornamental plants. Currently, the most efficient and economical method of control involves the use of...

  4. Indigenous knowledge

    | Contributor(s):: Morris, Brian

  5. Gut microbiota of humans, dogs and cats: current knowledge and future opportunities and challenges

    | Contributor(s):: Deng, P., Swanson, K. S.

    High-throughput DNA sequencing techniques allow for the identification and characterisation of microbes and their genes (microbiome). Using these new techniques, microbial populations in several niches of the human body, including the oral and nasal cavities, skin, urogenital tract and...

  6. Around cats

    | Contributor(s):: Goldstein, E. J. C., Greene, C. E., Schlossberg, D.

    This chapter focuses on diseases transmitted from cats to humans. The diseases transmitted by inhalation (bordetellosis, plague and Q fever), vectors (ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, cat scratch disease, bacillary angiomatosis, flea-borne spotted fever, murine typhus and leishmaniasis), faecal-oral...

  7. Less common house pets

    | Contributor(s):: Chomel, B. B., Schlossberg, D.

    This chapter focuses on the major health threats associated with exposure of humans to less common house pets. The viral, bacterial, parasitic and mycotic zoonoses transmitted by pet rabbits, rodents, reptiles, amphibians, ornamental aquarium fish, ferrets, bats and nonhuman primates are...

  8. With man's best friend

    | Contributor(s):: Collins, J. M., Lorber, B., Schlossberg, D.

    This chapter focuses on human diseases associated with exposure to dogs. The epidemiology of local infections following dog bites, as well as the initial bite management, antibiotic prophylaxis, antibiotic treatment of infection, and prevention of dog bites are discussed. The life-threatening...

  9. Zoonoses, public health, and the backyard poultry flock

    | Contributor(s):: Grunkemeyer, V. L.

  10. Early life exposures to home dampness, pet ownership and farm animal contact and neuropsychological development in 4 year old children: a prospective birth cohort study

    | Contributor(s):: Casas, L., Torrent, M., Zock, J. P., Doekes, G., Forns, J., Guxens, M., Taubel, M., Heinrich, J., Sunyer, J.

  11. Isolation of Microsporum canis from the hair coat of pet dogs and cats belonging to owners diagnosed with M. canis tinea corporis

    | Contributor(s):: Cafarchia, C., Romito, D., Capelli, G., Guillot, J., Otranto, D.

    Microsporum canis has been frequently isolated from human cases of tinea capitis and tinea corporis. The infection may be acquired from infected animals with cutaneous lesions but also from asymptomatic carriers or from the environment. As asymptomatic M. canis carriers are considered to be a...

  12. Spectral analysis of bovine grazing behavior on Neotyphodium coenophialum infested tall fescue

    | Contributor(s):: Seman, D. H., Stuedemann, J. A., Anderson, J. E.

    Bovines spend less time grazing and have reduced intake when grazing endophyte-infected (E+), N. coenophialum vs. endophyte-free (E-) tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea). Because bovine grazing behaviour follows a series of repeatable cycles, cyclic grazing behaviour was studied using spectral...

  13. The influence of acidosis and live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) supplementation on time-budget and feeding behaviour of dairy goats receiving two diets of differing concentrate proportion

    | Contributor(s):: Desnoyers, M., Giger-Reverdin, S., Sauvant, D., Bertin, G., Duvaux-Ponter, C.

    Increasing the percentage of concentrate in the diet can influence feeding behaviour of ruminants. It can also lead to subacute rumen acidosis and the addition of yeast to the rumen ecosystem might influence fermentation and subsequently help the ecosystem deal with the consequences of high...

  14. Dairy farmer attitudes and empathy toward animals are associated with animal welfare indicators

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Kielland, C., Skjerve, E., Osteras, O., Zanella, A. J.

    Attitudes and empathy of farmers influence human–animal interaction, thereby affecting their behavior toward animals. The goal was to investigate how measures of attitude and empathy toward animals were associated with animal welfare indicators such as milk yield, mastitis incidence,...

  15. Amount and diurnal distribution of grazing time by stocker cattle under different tall fescue management strategies

    | Contributor(s):: Coffey, K. P., Moyer, J. L., Brazle, F. K., Lomas, L. W.

    The effects of endophyte level, ladino clover interseeding, grazing management or supplemental antibiotics on stocker cattle performance and the amount and diurnal distribution of grazing time by stocker cattle on tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) pastures was evaluated. Grazing time was measured...
