  1. Gastrointestinal Parasites in Shelter Dogs: Occurrence, Pathology, Treatment and Risk to Shelter Workers

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Ali Raza, Jacquie Rand, Abdul Ghaffar Qamar, Abdul Jabbar, Steven Kopp

    Despite evidence of a minor role of gastrointestinal parasites in causing disease in owned pet populations prophylactically treated with anthelmintics, gastrointestinal parasitism remains an important consideration in the care of animals in shelters, and in owned pet populations in developing...

  2. What is the relationship between level of infection and 'sickness behaviour' in cattle?

    | Contributor(s):: Szyszka, O., Kyriazakis, I.

  3. Intake and selection for white clover by grazing lambs in response to gastrointestinal parasitism

    | Contributor(s):: Cosgrove, G. P., Niezen, J. H.

    A study was conducted at Palmerston North, New Zealand to determine if lambs grazing at pasture would enhance their nutrient intake in response to parasitism, by selecting more white clover from a mixed grass-clover pasture. The trial used a split-plot design with two grass-clover mixtures as...

  4. Strategies for the avoidance of faeces by grazing sheep

    | Contributor(s):: Cooper, J., Gordon, I. J., Pike, A. W.

    Experiments were conducted to investigate which environmental cues were used by sheep when discriminating against patches of pasture contaminated with faeces. The influence of the spatial distribution of contaminated patches and the parasite infection status of sheep on avoidance of contaminated...

  5. The gradual weaning process in outdoor sows and piglets in relation to nematode infections

    | Contributor(s):: Damm, B. I., Pedersen, L. J., Jessen, L. B., Thamsborg, S. M., Mejer, H., Ersboll, A. K.

    In EU organic pig production it is required that the piglets are weaned no earlier than 6 weeks of age. During the lactation period, a gradual weaning process occurs. Outdoor and organic pig production differ markedly from semi-natural and indoor environments, where the gradual weaning process...

  6. Influence of weaning age and an experimental Haemonchus contortus infection on behaviour and growth rates of lambs

    | Contributor(s):: Schichowski, C., Moors, E., Gauly, M.

    Four groups of 20 lambs each, differing in weaning age (6 or 13 weeks) and infection with Haemonchus contortus (infection after weaning or simultaneous to weaning), were observed and compared regarding the behaviour before, during and after these procedures. Furthermore the influence on...

  7. Selection of feeding sites by horses at pasture: testing the anti-parasite theory

    | Contributor(s):: Fleurance, G., Duncan, P., Fritz, H., Cabaret, J., Cortet, J., Gordon, I. J.

    Management of grazed grasslands for production and/or conservation objectives requires a thorough understanding of the choices of feeding sites by herbivores, and of the biological processes involved. Most models of the feeding strategies of herbivores are based on the principle that optimising...
