Abstract

Objectives: Intradermal allergy testing can be difficult to interpret in cats. Studies have shown that intradermal testing leads to elevations in blood cortisol, which may be an explanation for weak wheal reactions in cats. The primary objective of this study was to determine whether utilizing...

Abstract

Cortisol, the end product of the hypothalamus-pituitary-interrenal (HPI) axis, has been traditionally measured in blood as indicator of stress in fish, however, the degree of invasiveness inherent to blood collection is not always possible or desirable. Instead, cortisol measurement in skin mucus...

Abstract

Cortisol levels in fish skin mucus have shown to be good stress indicators in farm fish exposed to different stressors. Its applicability in free-ranging animals subject to long-term environmental stressors though remains to be explored. The present study was therefore designed to examine whether...

Abstract

Lactation is the most energetically expensive component of maternal care in mammals. Increased reproductive investment can lead to physiological stress for the mothers, based on the exhaustion of energy resources and increase in glucocorticoids level. This study aimed to estimate the changes in ...

Abstract

In the present study, the effects of dietary lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) extract (LE) on growth performance and immune, antioxidant, and stress responses in common carp, Cyprinus carpio were investigated. For this, four diets containing 0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5% LE were offered to triplicate...

Abstract

In recent times, the detection of cortisol in hair is intended to be used as an animal-based indicator for the assessment of chronic stress. However, the relationship between the ability to report average values of long-term circulating cortisol concentrations and the sensitivity to acute peaks of ...

Abstract

Objectives: Alpha(α)2-agonist administration has been documented to increase blood glucose concentrations in many species. The aim of this study was to further describe the effect of dexmedetomidine on glucose and its regulatory hormones in healthy cats. Methods: A randomized crossover study using...

Abstract

Blood analysis has recently become a popular tool to assess the welfare of the wild cats. However, the estimates of blood parameters may depend on the sampling method. We have tested (1) if the sampling procedure influences blood parameters and (2) what parameters are the most efficient in...

Abstract

In reproductive physiology research, experimental animals are often subjected to stressful procedures, including blood sampling and biopsy. In this present study, presence of pain or distress induced by four different procedures was examined using a measurement of salivary cortisol levels and...
