Abstract

Altered nursing or nutrition before artificial insemination (AI) can be used as a doe biostimulant to improve lactating rabbits reproduction. The timing of a shift from free to a 3-day controlled nursing to AI or the nursing method at fast-refeeding can affect the efficacy of these stimulations. In ...

AbstractFull Text

The reproductive performance of controlled nursing Hycole rabbits (n=1800) subjected to light stimulation (F) or doe-litter-separation plus light stimulation (DF) before AI (on day 11) instead of hormonal oestrus synchronization was compared with evaluating two reproduction cycles in spring in...

Abstract

Nursing in rabbits occurs inside the nest with circadian periodicity. To determine the contribution of suckling stimulation in regulating such periodicity, we varied the size of the litters provided (1, 2, 4, or 6-8 pups). Nursing does, kept under a 14:10 (L:D) photoperiod, were continuously...

Abstract

The purpose of the experiment was to analyse how the production and nursing behaviour of rabbit does are influenced by different lighting programmes and nursing methods. Rabbit does (n=119) were housed in 2 rooms. The lighting schedules were a continuous 16L:8D (16L, n=55) or an interrupted...

Abstract

There are an estimated 1.2 million pet rabbits in the UK, so their nursing care has never been more crucial and we should all feel comfortable nursing them to a high standard. Gut health in rabbits is always fundamental, but never more so than when dealing with ileus, as this is one of the most...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the present study was to analyse the effect of the lighting regime on the nursing behaviour of rabbit does. The experiment was carried out at the University of Kaposvár using Pannon White rabbit does. Prior to the experiment does were kept using a lighting program of 16L/8D and...

Abstract

Newborn rabbits, Oryctolagus cuniculus, locate their mother's nipples through typical orocephalic movements elicited by odour stimuli, in particular by the mammary pheromone (MP). The MP also promotes neonatal odour learning: after single pairing with the MP, an initially neutral odorant becomes...

Abstract

Rabbit obesity is a growing problem and has profound effects on the welfare of the rabbit. Worryingly the 2018 PDSA PAW Report highlighted the lack of owner awareness of the problem. Vets and nurses surveyed stated 30% of the rabbits they saw were overweight. However, 83% of owners felt their ...

Abstract

Upper respiratory tract problems are commonly seen in pet rabbits often in conjunction with dental disease. While medical treatment can be useful in many situations, surgical options may need to be considered for those rabbits with chronic rhinitis and empyema of the nasal cavities. This case...

Abstract

The aim of the experiment was to examine the nursing behaviour of does under different management methods. A continuous video recording with time lapse recorder (24 h a day) was used. The experimental groups were: FF, free nursing between parturition and day 16 (n=10 does); FC: free nursing between ...
