Unstable isotopes of rubidium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Rb atoms with atomic weights 79-84, and 86-95 are radioactive rubidium isotopes.
A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.

Molecular identification and epidemiological tracing of Pasteurella multocida meningitis in a baby. (1/67)

We report a case of Pasteurella multocida meningitis in a 1-month-old baby exposed to close contact with two dogs and a cat but without any known history of injury by these animals. 16S rRNA gene sequencing of the isolate from the baby allowed identification at the subspecies level and pointed to the cat as a possible source of infection. Molecular typing of Pasteurella isolates from the animals, from the baby, and from unrelated animals clearly confirmed that the cat harbored the same P. multocida subsp. septica strain on its tonsils as the one isolated from the cerebrospinal fluid of the baby. This case stresses the necessity of informing susceptible hosts at risk of contracting zoonotic agents about some basic hygiene rules when keeping pets. In addition, this study illustrates the usefulness of molecular methods for identification and epidemiological tracing of Pasteurella isolates.  (+info)

Two cases of tinea corporis by infection from a rabbit with Arthroderma benhamiae. (2/67)

The first cases of tinea corporis with Arthroderma benhamiae in Japan are reported. A 7-year-old girl and a 30-year-old mother in Shimane prefecture suffered from dermatophyte infections on the neck, shoulder, arms and leg. Three isolates from the two patients and a rabbit by which they supposedly were infected, were identified as Trichophyton mentagrophytes. On the bases of mating tests using the tester strains of both the African race and the Americano-European race of A. benhamiae, they were identified as A. benhamiae African race mating type (-). Our results are the first to indicate that both races of A. benhamiae exist in Japan.  (+info)

The use of seizure-alert dogs. (3/67)

We report our experience of training dogs to assist people with epilepsy by providing a useful warning of seizures. An unexpected finding has been that human subjects report an improvement in seizure rate. This may be related to increased confidence and activity levels. We have observed some hazards associated with untrained dogs, which raises questions about future experimental design. We plan further research to test our method and assess outcomes more formally. Recent changes in UK quarantine law provide an opportunity for further international collaboration.  (+info)

Development of the human-research animal bond and its impact on animal well-being. (4/67)

For millennia, relationships have developed between animals and people through the context of work, sport, companionship, or some combination of these activities. Often, a bond between animal and human results, which is based on affection and/or respect. In the research environment, it is not uncommon for a bond to develop between the investigator, veterinarian, and/or animal care technicians and the animals with which they work; and such a bond can be just as strong for a mouse as it is for a dog. Circumstances that foster the formation of these bonds include the close and frequent contact between the researchers and their animals during studies or during training of animals to particular tasks, the long periods of time many research animals live in the facilities (often years), the dependency of the animals on the animal care staff for their daily needs, and the veterinarian/patient relationship, which is not unlike that of private practitioners and client-owned animals. In addition, overlaying the fundamental relationship with the research animal are special bonds that can form with certain animals. Among those that engender a special attachment are animals that are particularly friendly, amusing, or intelligent; animals requiring extra supportive care; animals that show courage; animals that represent a milestone in a particular scientific advancement; and animals that reflect humans' own strengths and foibles. The development of these relationships is enriching to both personnel and animals inasmuch as people who care about their animals are committed to promoting and ensuring the well-being of those animals.  (+info)

Human-animal bonds in the laboratory: how animal behavior affects the perspectives of caregivers. (5/67)

Experiencing the human-animal bond in the laboratory context can potentially improve the quality of life of animals as well as increase job satisfaction for animal caregivers. With today s centralized facilities, caregivers generally focus entirely on providing routine care for animals without involvement in experimental procedures. Results of responses to a detailed and open-ended survey of 16 caregivers and five campus veterinarians at seven University of California campuses are presented, in addition to six interviews of additional caregivers and veterinarians. The survey revealed that these individuals became caregivers because of their attraction to the animals. Positive interactions with the animals were highly rewarding. Approximately half of the caregivers reported feeling less attracted to mice than other species. Job satisfaction could perhaps be increased by offering seminars for the research team that would include the caregivers and providing support related to animal deaths and euthanasia.  (+info)

Ethical aspects of relationships between humans and research animals. (6/67)

People who work in biomedical and behavioral research settings sometimes form strong relationships with individual laboratory animals. Ethnographic studies indicate that it is common for these individuals to transform some animals from experimental subject to pet. Although theories of ethics that emphasize impartiality and justice have little to say about the moral implications of human-research animal bonds, caring-based ethical systems acknowledge the moral consequences and resulting psychological burdens of these relationships. Typically, albeit not always, animal care staff are more likely than researchers to experience the moral ambivalence associated with human-laboratory animal bonds. These bonds can result in conflict between technicians and investigators. Several ways that research institutions can help individuals cope with the ethical consequences of relationships with research animals include supporting the development of human-animal relationships in laboratories, giving animal care personnel an ethical voice through involvement in the institutional animal care and use committee decision process, publicly acknowledging the emotional and moral costs of human-laboratory animal relationships, and educating animal care staff about the purpose and possible benefits of research projects.  (+info)

Ethical implications of the human-animal bond in the laboratory. (7/67)

This analysis of the moral implications of a human-animal bond in a research setting begins by describing a set of criteria that delineate the human-animal bond in general and form the foundation on which moral issues rest. Questions about if, when, and how such bonds are formed are discussed briefly; the discussion focuses on how the concept of a human-animal bond fits into standard moral theories. The conclusion is that impartial theories such as utilitarianism and deontological theories must be supplemented with an ethics of caring and that the moral duties engendered by the human-animal bond are best identified with such a supplemented theory.  (+info)

An additional "R": remembering the animals. (8/67)

Relationships inevitably develop between humans and animals, regardless of the function or use of the animal partners. The need to recognize the existence of these human-animal bonds, as well as acknowledge the use of the animals, is widespread. Religious memorial services for animals in certain areas of the world provide an historical basis for such acknowledgment activities. The diversity of sacred and secular approaches to memorializing or acknowledging animals is illustrated by representative examples of such events. The need to establish such events, particularly in academic and research settings, is emphasized. The pros and cons of developing and establishing acknowledgment activities in addition to the benefits of implementing such events are discussed.  (+info)

The human-animal bond encompasses a wide range of emotional, physical and physiological effects induced by close, especially long-term, close interaction between a human and an animal. Considering it a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals that is influenced by behaviors that are essential to the health and well-being of both, the American Veterinary Medical Association established a committee that develops policies, for veterinarians and the human companions of the animals, to encourage its benefits.[1] This bond is best known with companion animals, but there can be close bonds, for example, between zoo animals and the staff that work with them, and, to a lesser extent, between wild and semi-tame animals and humans when their territories cross. The bond can extend beyond death. The best known example in the Western Hemisphere is probably that of Greyfriars Bobby, a Skye Terrier. Bobby guarded his owners grave for fourteen years, until his own death. Bobby ...

Changes in the socialisation period. We know socialisation plays an important role for dogs, and it seems the same is the case in foxes. There is a sensitive period of socialisation in post-natal development.. Is clear is that the domestication process in foxes has resulted in a different, extended socialisation period. Firstly, they respond to sound two days earlier (and open their ears quicker) and open their eyes one day earlier (and also open their eyes quicker) than unselected foxes. The socialisation period of the domedicated fox closes 3 weeks later than non-domesticated lines (i.e. the unselected foxes have a socialisation period of 40-45 days, while unselected foxes have a socialisation period of 60-65 days). Domesticated foxes have accelerated maturation intitially, and then this is retarded. This means that foxes have an extended window, which allows them to learn more about human ways and how to respond to them.. Belyaev experimented with fox cubs from domesticated lines and lines ...

Background: Although research indicates that second-hand smoke (SHS) harms both human and animal health, data on the percentage of pet owners who smoke or allow smoking in their homes are not readily available.. Objective: To investigate pet owners smoking behaviour and policies on smoking in their homes, and the potential for educational interventions to motivate change in pet owners smoking behaviour.. Methods: A web-based survey was used with 3293 adult pet owners. The main outcome measures were smoking behaviour of pet owners and their cohabitants; policies on smoking in pet owners homes; and impact of information about the dangers of pet exposure to SHS on pet owners smoking intentions.. Results: Of respondents, 21% were current smokers and 27% of participants lived with at least one smoker. Pet owners who smoke reported that information on the dangers of pet exposure to SHS would motivate them to try to quit smoking (28.4%) and ask the people with whom they live to quit smoking (8.7%) ...
In developed nations, pet ownership is common within families. Both physical and psychological health benefits may result from owning a pet during childhood and adolescence. However, it is difficult to determine whether these benefits are due to pet ownership directly or to factors linked to both pet ownership and health. Previous research found associations between a range of socio-demographic factors and pet ownership in seven-year-old children from a UK cohort. The current study extends this research to adolescence, considering that these factors may be important to consider in future Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) research across childhood. The Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) collected pet ownership data prospectively via maternal reports from gestation up to age 10 years old and via self-report retrospectively at age 18 for ages 11 (n = 3063) to 18 years old (n = 3098) on cats, dogs, rabbits, rodents, birds, fish, tortoise/turtles and horses. The dataset also contains a

TY - JOUR. T1 - Brief report: Do service dog providers placing dogs with children with developmental disabilities use outcome measures and, if so, what are they?. AU - Butterly, F.. AU - Percy, Carol. AU - Ward, Gillian. N1 - The full text of this item is not available from the repository. The final publication is available at PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - The aim of this study was to identify the outcomes expected and assessed by those providing service dogs to children with developmental disabilities. Seventeen registered service dog providers were invited to complete a mixed methods online survey. Five providers, who prepared dogs to work with a wide range of conditions and behaviours, mainly Aspergers syndrome, autism and communication disorders, completed the survey. All five participants reported that they expected to see positive changes as a consequence of the service dog placement, in both the recipient child and their family, including improvements in attention ...
Although noncommunicable diseases have caused a considerable burden on public health worldwide, infectious and parasitic diseases are still responsible for an unfathomable impact on human and animal health. Moreover, with the advent of molecular biology, new infectious and parasitic diseases are continuously being discovered, and emerging zoonoses are being identified. To address this complex scenario in toto, a holistic and multifaceted approach is required. This brings us to the concept of One Health Medicine, which is the order of the day in the field of public health. This concept invites public health professionals, human health and veterinary clinicians to adopt a global approach when dealing with health risks resulting from human-animal interactions. The book Human-Animal Medicine, Clinical Approaches to Zoonoses, Toxicants and Other Shared Health Risks comes to consolidate this approach, in practice.. The book is organized into 14 chapters authored by one or more of 23 contributors. ...
Advances in genetic engineering have generally caused a large amount of debates and discussion in the fields related to bioethics, and research relating to the hypothetical creation of human-animal hybrids in the future has been no exception. The technical analyses of intermingling human-based and animal-based genetic material are ongoing; the ethical, moral, and legal issues arising from actual research using chimeras (rather than hybrids per se) at the moment also touch more speculative concerns as well. While laws against the creation of hybrid beings have been proposed in U.S. states and in the U.S. Congress, several scientists have argued that legal barriers might go too far and prohibit medically beneficial studies into human modification.[2][4][8] Although the two topics are not strictly related, the debates involving the creation of human-animal hybrids have paralleled that of the debates around the stem-cell research controversy.[2] The question of what line exists between a human ...
Researchers first grew human embryonic stem cells in the lab in 1998, and policy on stem cells and human-animal chimeras followed two years later.. In August 2000, under President Bill Clinton, the NIH published a final rule that prohibited funding [r]esearch in which human pluripotent stem cells are combined with an animal embryo, along with providing the first guidelines for the kind of stem cell research that the agency would fund.. Since scientists hadnt yet developed induced pluripotent stem cells, this rule only applied to embryonic stem cells.. On Aug. 9, 2001, President George W. Bush limited the scope of stem cell research that could be federally funded to experiments using embryonic stem cell lines that had been derived prior to that day, among other limitations.. In November 2001, his administration also revoked the 2000 rule. But an NIH spokesperson told us, The policy that was in place under President Bush did not address human-animal chimeras specifically, and therefore did not ...
Jack wears two devices on his body at all times to monitor and maintain his blood sugar levels. Mom and dad track it through an app on their phone. Plus a finger prick blood test is necessary at least 15 times throughout the day. The risk of running too low or too high can be deadly. Every night when we say goodnight to him, we dont know if well say good morning, Jill explained through tears. The nighttime is the scariest time for Type 1s because things can change so quickly. The Cafferys are not alone in this fear. Jody Filonovich, a dog trainer with Dogworks Service Dogs in Rochester can attest. Thats because her career is centered around training Diabetic Alert Dogs, or DADs, for families just like Jacks.. The dogs purpose is to be another blood sugar monitor. Dogs have the ability to scent that and be preemptive as well, Filonovich explained. So as someone is trending downward, that literally is coming systemically out of their body. These dogs in the program go through ...
Service dogs for people with diabetes are the tattletales of the dog world, according to Rita Martinez, co-author of a new book, Training Your Diabetic Alert Dog.
A diabetic alert dog is an assistance dog trained to detect high (hyperglycemia) or low (hypoglycemia) levels of blood sugar in humans with diabetes and alert their owners to dangerous changes in blood glucose levels. This allows their owners to take steps to return their blood sugar to normal, such as using glucose tablets, sugar and carbohydrate rich food. The dog can prompt a human to take insulin. When owners with diabetes begin to experience hypoglycemia, the detection dogs perform a predetermined task (e.g. bark, lay down, sit) to inform the person. Dogs may be directly smelling something related to the abnormal glucose concentration, or may be reacting to the owners symptoms which are caused by hypoglycemia, such as sweating or shaking. The first dog trained to detect hypoglycemia was a Californian dog called Armstrong in 2003. In 2009, a dog named Tinker from Durham City became the first British assistance dog to be officially registered for a type 2 diabetic owner. He was able to give ...

Handlers of therapy and/or facility dogs working within hospital settings have experienced various barriers and challenges within their practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Animal-assisted interventions, specifically therapeutic working dogs, are a valued source of support to individuals, communities, hospital settings, and disaster sites during times of community distress. The purpose of this study was to identify barriers and solutions to the continued use of animal-assisted therapeutic interventions in support of patients and families within the hospital setting during the COVID-19 pandemic. This researchers position within the research is the knowledge and experience of being a facility dog handler within the hospital setting during the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualitative research was performed utilizing an investigator written questionnaire. Participants were chosen from purposeful sampling of dog handler teams to recognize the impact that this global crisis has made particularly to the practice of
A Finnish study published in 2006, which surveyed 21,000 Finnish adults aged 20 to 54, is one of the few independent studies that has looked at the effects of pets on the general population. In this hypothesis-testing study, scientists Leena K. Koivusilta and Ansa Ojanlatva showed that pet owners are sick more often and do a below-average amount of exercise: 26% of the pet owners in the study were overweight, compared with 21% for those who did not have pets; 16% of the pet owners exercised less than once a month in comparison to 2% for those without pets. The risk of having health problems is 10% to 20% higher in pet owners than in non-pet owners, even when factors such as age and socio-economic level are considered. This is comparable to the risk in bachelors, widowers, and divorcees. Overall, this study associated pet ownership with poor, rather than good, health. (27 ...

Zimmerman also goes deep into training as a whole, versus just training for diabetes awareness. Think about how much training do you want your dog to have. Their well-being is always in loving hands. One of the first paragraphs I found intriguing in Zimmermans book was when she explained how not every dog is meant to be an alert dog: I just got this dog. I never doubt that the dog is a smart, loving, sweet, or the best dog ever, to the owner. During the final stages of training, the diabetes alert dog is trained to detect their persons saliva sample scent. Concord, CA 94520, Mailing Address He was so lonely at the back of the kennel.

Behavior problems are the #1 reason pets are surrendered to shelters, rehomed, or euthanized. Having a pet with a behavior problem impacts everyones quality of life and damages the human-animal bond. Common behavior problems include: fears and phobias, house soiling, reactivity, anxiety, excessive barking, and other nuisance behaviors. Treatment includes extensive history taking, learning how to understand and interpret your dogs behavior, management strategies, and behavior modification techniques. Problem behavior training appointments are typically held in your home and last 90 minutes ...
The AKC Canine Health Foundation has long admired the tireless work of breed club rescue groups that are committed to finding long-term, committed homes for their dogs. Despite their efforts the current statistics are overwhelming: 7 million dogs are relinquished to shelters every year in the US, and after adoption nearly 50% of adopted dogs are returned back to the shelter. These returns may be emotionally painful for the owner but they can be deadly for the dog. In order to reduce owner surrenders Dr. Clive Wynne aims to evaluate whether an owner-dog exercise program can decrease return rates of newly adopted dogs by improving the Human-Animal bond. Dr. Wynne hypothesizes that shared structured exercise between the new owner and the newly adopted dog will provide a buffer against return by promoting social bonding and attachment to the dog and improving the physical and mental health of both parties. In collaboration with the Arizona Animal Welfare League/SPCA, one hundred and eighty dog-owner pairs

Every day the OSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital witnesses inspiring stories of the human-animal bond in clients who go to great lengths to ensure the good health of their pets. The Kendall family is one such story. In November, Garret, Patricia and their three kids gave their all, financially and emotionally, for a puppy named Griffey that they had only known a few months.. Griffey joined the Kendall household last summer when he was 6 weeks old. He is a Cane Corso big-breed dog, but was the runt of the litter. His joyful, gentle personality quickly captured the hearts of the Kendall family and everyone he met.. When the Kendalls took Griffey to his first checkup, their veterinarian heard a heart murmur, a common condition, generally not too worrisome. Several months later the murmur was worse, so they took Griffey to a cardiologist who found congenital deformities in the puppys heart, and referred them to OSU..

Animals Asias Dr Dog is an innovative animal-assisted therapy programme that provides people in need with what they need most - a best friend. The programme is also changing the way people feel about dogs. In China, where we focus our work, Dr Dog is challenging beliefs and changing lives for animals. As more people come to understand that dogs have feelings, both physical and emotional, more people are standing up against the cruel trade in dogs (and cats) for their meat.. Through Dr Dog, registered therapy dogs are visiting hospitals, homes for the elderly, disabled centres, orphanages and schools in three mainland Chinese cities and Hong Kong. We have also introduced Dr Dog to Taiwan, the Philippines, India, Japan and Malaysia by providing local animal-welfare groups with training and advice to run their own programmes independently..

Dr Eddie on an animal-assisted therapy visit. Because of his market background and featuring in our Friends...or Food campaign, Eddie quickly became our Dr Dog Ambassador too - although in truth he was the worst canine doctor in the world. Every hospital visit saw him either relieving himself against any pot plants that were there to cheer up the patients, or stubbornly sitting on the floor and refusing to budge and offer the unique animal therapy wed promised the bemused hospital staff. A master of escape too, he could put Houdini to shame as he wriggled out of the tightest collar or harness, before heading off towards the doors when hed decided that hed had enough adoration for one day.

Animal-assisted therapy is a growing field that uses dogs or other animals to help children recover from or better cope with health problems.
Marian R. Banks, Center for Human Nutrition, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.. The term nursing home is often a misnomer. The typical nursing home is more institution than home and run more like a hospital than a household. Indeed, the American Heritage dictionary defines nursing home as a hospital for convalescent or aged people (emphasis ours). Yet many of us will spend a good portion of the last part of our lives in these institutions. How can these last years be made as enjoyable and meaningful as possible? We recently published a study examining the effects of animal-assisted therapy (AAT) on loneliness among nursing home residents. The statistical aspect of that study has been published elsewhere and it showed, among other things, that AAT can reduce loneliness.1 However, during the course of that study we learned several lessons that couldnt be reduced to statistics. Here, we review some of the things we learned about making long-term care facilities more ...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online. Owning a pet - especially a dog - could help reduce a person´s risk of developing heart disease, according to a new scientific statement released Thursday by the American Heart Association.. The statement, which has been published online in the association´s journal Circulation, stops short of definitively saying that owning a pet causes a direct reduction in cardiovascular disease risk. However, it did find evidence of a positive link between pet ownership and heart disease risk factors.. Pet ownership, particularly dog ownership, is probably associated with a decreased risk of heart disease Glenn N. Levine, MD, professor at the Baylor College of Medicine and the chairman of the committee that wrote the statement, said in a statement. It may be simply that healthier people are the ones that have pets, not that having a pet actually leads to or causes reduction in cardiovascular risk.. According to Reuters, the statement comes following ...
Hooray, finally a book emerges about the human-animal interface that addresses both perspectives equitably and seamlessly. Peter Rabinowitz, a physician, and Lisa Conti, a veterinarian, effectively present material that is thorough, balanced, and of great relevance for practitioners of all varieties of medicine.. More than half the pages comprise reports on each of 35 zoonoses. At the beginning of each report are key points divided into professional categories-public health professionals, human health clinicians, and veterinary clinicians-ensuring relevance for multiple readers. In addition, 55 pages deal with toxicoses, including environmental, gaseous, poisonous plants, herbicides/pesticides, and envenomations. Clinical signs, symptoms, species comparisons, treatment and prevention for these toxicoses are all spelled out clearly.. This inclusive approach, with its plentiful and accurate technical information, might be enough to justify purchasing the book for the shelf of any human or ...

Psychiatric Service Dogs assist those with invisible disabilities such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, social phobias, autism, developmental delays, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Many of our applicants have experienced trauma from physical or sexual abuse or assault, suffer from anxiety or social phobias that limit their independence and capacity to function in public, have trauma from combat (veterans), or suffer from chronic psychiatric conditions that have limited their ability to thrive in society. Service tasks taught for such conditions include: signaling for behavior, such as nudging when dissociative behavior begins; standing between the guardian and others when in public to increase personal space; performing behaviors that give the appearance of being protective, such as watch my back (though service dogs are never taught to actually be protective or perform guarding behaviors); turning on lights before entering ...
According to the Veterans this is how the event unfolded:. On Wednesday, September 04, 2013, I, Amanda Houser, and Holly Bolesky went to grab a bite to eat at my local Long John Silvers (hereby referred to as LJS). We entered the establishment, waited in line behind another couple for approximately two or three minutes, and then approached the counter to order our dinner.. We ordered, and our receipt is stamped at 1900:00:29 pm, todays date. We grabbed our drink cups and went to fill them, then sat down at a table to wait. After sitting at this table for approximately two to three minutes, the person we later learned was the Manager on Duty approached us and stated that we could not have dogs inside the restaurant.. I informed her that they were service dogs and that everything was okay. She said that folks have allergies and that she couldnt allow dogs inside and that we would have to leave. At this point, another customer at the table next to us said that these were service dogs and that ...

One of the most well known types of service animal is a guide dog for people who cant see or cant see well. Learn what all these furry friends have to do in order to be someones eyes.. In a past blog, I briefly mentioned the intense training that goes into a puppy becoming a service dog . Now over several blog posts, Ill be delving into the specifics of what different types of service animals do, and how they help their humans.. Lets start with guide dogs. The very first service animal that I saw was a yellow Labrador guide dog. I was very young, so I was mostly confused as to why I couldnt pet the pretty doggy. It wasnt until later on that I learned why it is important to not distract the canine, and what a big job it had. Guide dogs are pooches that assist blind and visually impaired people. These canines are trained to navigate common obstacles such as curbs, other people, doors, etc. Some standard skills are:. ...

The story is somewhat similar for oxytocin: too much of a good thing can be bad. Recent studies on party drugs such as MDMA and GHB shows that oxytocin may be the hormone behind the feel-good, sociable effects these chemicals produce. These positive feelings are taken to an extreme in this case, causing the user to dissociate from his or her environment and act wildly and recklessly. Furthermore, oxytocins role as a bonding hormone appears to help reinforce the positive feelings we already feel towards the people we love. That is, as we become more attached to our families, friends, and significant others, oxytocin is working in the background, reminding us why we like these people and increasing our affection for them. While this may be a good things for monogamy, such associations are not always positive. For example, oxytocin has also been suggested to play a role in ethnocentrism, increasing our love for people in our already-established cultural groups and making those unlike us seem ...
Ideally a run should be attached to the hutch so that the rabbits can choose whether to be in or outdoors. The run should be as spacious as possible to allow the rabbits to hop, jump, and have total freedom of movement. We recommend that the minimum size for two rabbits is at least 244cm (8ft) x 183cm (6ft) floor space by 91cm (3ft) tall. It needs to be secure (this includes the underside) as a rabbits natural behaviour is to dig. Equally importantly, it must be kept safe from predators at all times. Fresh water must always be available both inside the hutch and outside in the run.. We strongly recommend that the run should be attached to the hutch, however, if this is not possible a large free-standing run should be obtained which gives shelter, shade, and a place within to hide from would-be predators. Remember the sun moves, so a run that starts in shade may be in full sunlight a few hours later.. ...
