  1. Unpredictable mild stressors on laying females influence the composition of Japanese quail eggs and offspring's phenotype

    Contributor(s):: Guibert, Floriane, Richard-Yris, Marie-Annick, Lumineau, Sophie, Kotrschal, Kurt, Bertin, Aline, Petton, Christophe, Möstl, Erich, Houdelier, Cécilia

    Maternal stress effects on offspring development have been studied largely in rodents and primates, and to a lesser extent in farm animals. Potential lack of knowledge concerning prenatal stress on farm animals is regrettable because they are frequently subjected to a variety of husbandry...

  2. Survey of Veterinarians Using a Novel Physical Compression Squeeze Procedure in the Management of Neonatal Maladjustment Syndrome in Foals

    Contributor(s):: Monica Aleman, Kalie M. Weich, John E. Madigan

    Horses are a precocious species that must accomplish several milestones that are critical to survival in the immediate post-birth period for their survival. One essential milestone is the successful transition from the intrauterine unconsciousness to an extrauterine state of consciousness or...

  3. Effects of growth-promoting technology on feedlot cattle behavior in the 21 days before slaughter

    Contributor(s):: Stackhouse-Lawson, K. R., Tucker, C. B., Calvo-Lorenzo, M. S., Mitloehner, F. M.

    There is growing interest in the animal welfare implications of growth-promoting technology used in feedlot cattle, namely hormonal implants, ionophores, antibiotics and β 2-adrenergic agonists. Previous studies have focused on the effects of implants on aggression, but little work has...

  4. 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...

  5. Salivary cortisol in captive dolphins (Tursiops truncatus): a non-invasive technique

    | Contributor(s):: Pedernera-Romano, C., Valdez, R. A., Singh, S., Chiappa, X., Romano, M. C., Galindo, F.

  6. Euthanasia methods, corticosterone and haematocrit levels in Xenopus laevis : evidence for differences in stress?

    | Contributor(s):: Archard, G. A., Goldsmith, A. R.

    Amphibians, like other vertebrates, respond to acute stressors by releasing glucocorticoid steroid hormones that mediate physiological and behavioural responses to stress. Measurement of stress hormones provides a potential means to improve the welfare of laboratory animals. For example,...
