  5. Reducing the effect of pre-slaughter fasting on the stress response of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

    Contributor(s):: Bermejo-Poza, R., De la Fuente, J., Perez, C., Lauzurica, S., de Chavarri, E. G., Diaz, M. T., Villarroel, M.

  6. A preliminary approach on the stress assessment through harmless procedures in farmed seabream (Sparus aurata)

    Contributor(s):: Herrera, M., Lopez, J., Herves, A.

  7. Evaluating physiological stress in Asiatic black bears (Ursus thibetanus) rescued from bile farms in Vietnam

    Contributor(s):: Narayan, E., Willis, A., Thompson, R., Hunter-Ishikawa, M., Bendixsen, T.

  8. A preliminary study of the effects of individual response to challenge tests and stress induced by humans on learning performance of weaned piglets (Sus scrofa)

    Contributor(s):: Brajon, S., Laforest, J. P., Schmitt, O., Devillers, N.

    This study investigated whether individual behavioural characteristics of piglets and stress induced by experience with humans can influence learning performance. After weaning, piglets received a chronic experience with humans to modulate their emotional state: rough (ROU), gentle (GEN), or...

  9. Introducing the new dog or cat into the home

    Contributor(s):: Mills, D., Dube, M. B., Zulch, H.

    Sections on potential stressors in the initial settling-in period, dos and don'ts for first encounters with a new pet, and problem prevention through education.

  10. Ethische Aspekte der physischen und der psychischen Belastung des Pferdes durch dessen reiterliche Nutzung

    Contributor(s):: Meyer, H.

  11. Animal welfare: should we change housing to better accommodate the animal or change the animal to accommodate the housing?

    Contributor(s):: Cheng, Heng-Wei

    Animal welfare (well-being) can be generally defined as 'a state of harmony between the animal and its environment, characterized by optimal physical, behavioural and psychological functioning and high quality of the animal's life'. Since its inception in the early nineteenth century, through...

  12. Behavioural and physiological responses of pigs to sound

    Contributor(s):: Talling, J. C., Waran, N. K., Wathes, C. M., Lines, J. A.

    Eight piglets were exposed to artificially generated sounds, nominal intensities of 85 or 97 dB(Lin), and frequencies of 500 or 8000 Hz for 15 min during a 1-h experimental period. In a 2nd experiment, 8 piglets were exposed to 20 min of farm sounds (Leq 80 dB), transport sounds (Leq 83 dB),...

  13. Behavioural responses to humans and the productivity of commercial broiler chickens

    Contributor(s):: Hemsworth, P. H., Coleman, G. J., Barnett, J. L., Jones, R. B.

    A higher proportion of birds that had received minimal human contact withdrew as an experimenter approached in a standard test than birds that had received regular human contact (0.77 vs. 0.46) and these birds that had received minimal human contact had higher plasma corticosterone concentrations...

  14. Conditioned approach-avoidance responses to humans: the ability of pigs to associate feeding and aversive social experiences in the presence of humans with humans

    Contributor(s):: Hemsworth, P. H., Verge, J., Coleman, G. J.

    A series of experiments were conducted to determine whether pigs learn to associate rewarding or aversive elements of a procedure with the handler conducting the procedure. Experiment 1 was conducted to examine whether sexually unreceptive female pigs regularly introduced to boars in their...

  15. Behavioural, saliva cortisol and heart rate responses to different types of stimuli in dogs

    Contributor(s):: Beerda, B., Schilder, M. B. H., Hooff, J. A. R. A. M. van, Vries, H. W. de, Mol, J. A.

    Ten dogs of both sexes, different ages and various breeds were each subjected to 6 different stimuli: sound blasts, short electric shocks, a falling bag, an opening umbrella and 2 forms of restraint. Each type of stimulus had been selected for its assumed aversive properties and was administered...

  16. The effects of modifying the amount of human contact on behavioural, physiological and production responses of laying hens

    Contributor(s):: Barnett, J. L., Hemsworth, P. H., Hennessy, D. P., McCallum, T. H., Newman, E. A.

    White Leghorn x Australorp hens given minimal exposure to humans (regular, but limited, human contact during egg collection, inspections and feeding), showed greater fear of humans, a higher blood corticosterone response to handling and lower hen-day egg production (83.1 vs. 89.4

  17. Heart rate and stress hormone responses of sheep to road transport following two different loading procedures

    Contributor(s):: Parrott, R. F., Hall, S. J. G., Lloyd, D. M.

    The physiological responses induced in 18 sheep by 2 different loading techniques followed by a short road journey were investigated. All animals were prepared with venous catheters, to minimize the disturbing effects of blood sampling, and 9 sheep were fitted with heart rate monitors. The...
