  4. 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...

  5. Participatory methods for the assessment of the ownership status of free-roaming dogs in Bali, Indonesia, for disease control and animal welfare

    | Contributor(s):: Morters, M. K., Bharadwaj, S., Whay, H. R., Cleaveland, S., Damriyasa, I. M., Wood, J. L. N.

    The existence of unowned, free-roaming dogs capable of maintaining adequate body condition without direct human oversight has serious implications for disease control and animal welfare, including reducing effective vaccination coverage against rabies through limiting access for vaccination, and...

  6. Common and emerging infectious diseases in the animal shelter

    | Contributor(s):: Pesavento, P. A., Murphy, B. G.

    The beneficial role that animal shelters play is unquestionable. An estimated 3 to 4 million animals are cared for or placed in homes each year, and most shelters promote public health and support responsible pet ownership. It is, nonetheless, inevitable that shelters are prime examples of...

  7. Perceptions of companion dog benefits on well-being of US military veterans with HIV/AIDS

    | Contributor(s):: Kruger, K. S., Stern, S. L., Anstead, G., Finley, E. P.

    Objectives: Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) frequently experience psychosocial complications in addition to physical illness. Conflicting data on the value of companion dog ownership in minimizing psychosocial distress suggest the need...

    | Contributor(s):: Gibbens, N.

  9. Human-animal relationships in the Norwegian dairy goat industry: assessment of pain and provision of veterinary treatment (Part II)

  11. Environmental enrichment exerts anxiolytic effects in the Indian field mouse ( Mus booduga)

    | Contributor(s):: Varman, D. R., Ganapathy, Marimuthu, Rajan, K. E.

    Environmental enrichment (EE) is known to have behavioral and physiological anxiolytic effects in several animal models. However, it is as yet unclear how EE modulates behavior of wild animals and the underlying molecular mechanisms. The adult male field mouse Mus...

  12. Students' attitudes to animal welfare and rights in Europe and Asia

    | Contributor(s):: Phillips, C. J. C., Izmirli, S., Aldavood, S. J., Alonso, M., Choe, B. I., Hanlon, A., Handziska, A., Illmann, G., Keeling, L., Kennedy, M., Lee, G. H., Lund, V., Mejdell, C., Pelagic, V. R., Rehn, T.

  13. 'subordination style' in pigs? The response of pregnant sows to mixing stress affects their offspring's behaviour and stress reactivity

    | Contributor(s):: Ison, S. H., D'Eath, R. B., Robson, S. K., Baxter, E. M., Ormandy, E., Douglas, A. J., Russell, J. A., Lawrence, A. B., Jarvis, S.

    In various mammals stress during gestation can result in long term effects on the behaviour and physiology of the offspring. The aims of this study were (i) to characterise individual variation among primiparous sows (gilts) in their behavioural and physiological response to a commercially...

  14. Effects of weaning age on the behavioural and neuroendocrine development of piglets. (Special Issue: Early Weaning.)

    | Contributor(s):: Jarvis, S., Moinard, C., Robson, S. K., Sumner, B. E. H., Douglas, A. J., Seckl, J. R., Russell, J. A., Lawrence, A. B.

    Adverse early life experiences can permanently "programme" increases in stress reactivity in adulthood. We investigated whether weaning, which involves maternal separation, at different ages, altered subsequent behaviour, physiology and neuroendocrine function in young pigs. The litters...

  15. Factors associated with aggressive responses in pet dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Hsu, YuYing, Sun, LiChing

    This study used The Canine Behavioral Assessment and Research Questionnaire (C-BARQ) and regression models to explore the relative importance of dog and owner characteristics, living environment and owner-dog interaction to household dogs' aggressiveness towards strangers, owners and other dogs....

  16. Factors affecting response of dogs to obedience instruction: a field and experimental study

    | Contributor(s):: Braem, M. D., Mills, D. S.

    Communication is an essential component of the translation of learning theory into the practical control of the behaviour of dogs. A handler sends a signal (e.g. a command), to which their dog responds. This response is dependent on the dog's perception of the signal rather than the intention of...
