Abstract

Two groups of beagles, accustomed to spacious group housing, were subjected to social and spatial restriction and studied for evidence of chronic stress with a time interval of 7 weeks between the groups. It is concluded that socially and spatially restricted dogs may show increased hydrocortisone...

Abstract

Forty Danish warmblood colts in two replicates were used to investigate the effect of housing and handling in the rearing period on the reactions to humans. The horses entered the experiment after weaning and were housed either individually (n=16) or in groups of three (n=24). Half of the horses...

Abstract

Gerbils are social animals and live in family groups in the wild, suggesting that individual housing may be a psychosocial stressor in this species. In the present study, gerbils were housed in same sex groups for 4 weeks, and then were either individually housed or remained with their cage mates...

Background: Weaning of beef calves is a necessary husbandry practice and involves separating the calf from its mother, resulting in numerous stressful events including dietary change, social reorganisation and the cessation of the maternal-offspring bond and is often accompanied by housing. While...

Abstract

The aim of this study was a comparison of the behaviour and stress burden of horses in a tie stalls, stabling in individual boxes and keeping horses in small groups in a group box, each with daily paddock movement (approx. 7 h). The study was carried out with eight healthy warmblood horses at the...

Abstract

Current husbandry and care guidelines for laboratory animals recommend social housing for nonhuman primates and all other social species. However, not all individuals of a social species are compatible, which can lead to psychosocial stress on certain members. Because stress affects immune...

Abstract

Social housing of nonhuman primates (NHP) in an infectious disease setting presents unique challenges, and individual housing is often scientifically justified. At our institute, we recognized an opportunity to limit individual housing to the minimal period necessary by pair-housing NHP after...
