Abstract

Crib-biting is a repetitive and compulsive behavior that is characterized by "grasping a fixed object with incisor teeth and aspirating air with an audible grunt." Little is known about etiology and pathophysiology of crib-biting behavior in horses. Previously, we have shown that oxidative stress...

Abstract

Crib biting is a common equine stereotypic behavior that has links to health problems and poor welfare. There is evidence that crib biters may be more sensitive to environmental stressors, and the aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that crib-biting behavior in horses has a...

Abstract

The authors of this article describe the recently available treatment possibilities for crib biting, and the principles of a potential behaviour therapy. Crib-biting/windsucking is considered as one of the main abnormal stereotypic behaviours in horses, especially from practical point of view, it...

Abstract

There have been few reports about temporohyoid osteoarthropathy in Japanese horses. The aim of this study was to describe the symptoms and management of temporohyoid osteoarthropathy and to investigate its association with crib-biting behavior, which is commonly observed in Japanese horses. The...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Crib-biting is a common oral stereotypy. Although most treatments involve prevention, the efficacy of various anti-crib devices, including surgically implanted gingival rings, has thus far not been empirically tested. Objectives: Demonstrate the effect that 2 anti-crib ...

Abstract

Crib-biting is an abnormal behavior, classified as one of the most classical oral stereotypies in horses. Its etiology is poorly understood and is considered multifactorial, being associated with negative health effects. The objective of this study was to explore the ethological, endocrinological,...

Abstract

Crib-biting in horses is a stereotypical oral behaviour with a prevalence of 2.8-15%, varying between breeds. A genetic basis for crib-biting has been suggested by many researchers, but due to incomplete information on families or the lack of a sufficient number of verified crib-biters,...

Abstract

At Utrecht 104 cases of wind-sucking (aerophagia) were dealt with between 1956 and 1969. Breed, sex and age distribution is given. The operation described by G. Forsell in 1913 was performed on 88 horses. Assessment of the results of 73 operations showed that 39 horses were 'cured', 14 were...

Abstract

In an attempt to reduce 'fibre-belly' and prevent obesity in horses many owners restrict access to hay in the stable. Such restrictions can lead to digestive disturbances and promote the development of stereotypic behaviours. The objectives of this experiment were to determine if ad libitum or...

Abstract

Crib-biting in horses is a stereotypic oral behaviour. Genetic susceptibility has been suggested on a causal basis, together with environmental factors such as stress, gastric discomfort and frustration caused by stall restrictions. This study aimed to test the associations of known or suspected...
