  • Hoarding
  • Animal hoarding is keeping a higher-than-usual number of animals as domestic pets without ability to properly house or care for them, while at the same time denying this inability. (wikipedia.org)
  • Compulsive hoarding can be characterized as a symptom of mental disorder rather than deliberate cruelty towards animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals provides a "Hoarding Prevention Team", which works with hoarders to help them attain a manageable and healthy number of pets. (wikipedia.org)
  • The number of animals involved alone is not a determinative factor in identifying hoarding. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • 2 Of the food-producing animals, it is believed that swine are more commonly infected and thus more often the foodborne source of the organism. (aasv.org)
  • exposure
  • To help keep your and your baby safe, The HSUS has put together tips for avoiding exposure to toxoplasmosis. (humanesociety.org)
  • The environment (geographical location, housing, contact with other animals) of the animal is one of the most important determinants of disease risk and exposure for organic swine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Outbreaks of zoonoses have been traced to human interaction with and exposure to animals at fairs, petting zoos, and other settings. (wikipedia.org)
  • people
  • In Egypt, around 10 million small ruminants are yearly produced with slightly more than 50% kept in small herds with less than 10 animals, and 25% owned by people without agricultural land. (biomedcentral.com)
  • swine
  • The charts show serological test results from USDA's National Animal Health Monitoring System National Swine Surveys. (aasv.org)
  • 6 The results of the 2000 USDA National Animal Health Monitoring System's National Swine Survey, the most recent comprehensive study of the US pork industry, found a seroprevalence rate of 6.00% for sows and 0.90% for finisher pigs (Table 1) (Dr E. Bush, Veterinary Epidemiologist and Swine Specialist with the USDA Center for Animal Health Monitoring, 2002, personal communication). (aasv.org)
  • In 1995, the USDA's National Animal Health Monitoring System National Swine Survey found rates of 15.00% in sows and 3.20% in finishers (Table 1). (aasv.org)
  • Overall numbers for certified organic livestock remain low compared to the overall U.S. swine numbers, with approximately 12,000 animals in 2011. (wikipedia.org)
  • The definition of organic swine according to the USDA National Organic Program (NOP), is largely unchanged: Animals for slaughter must be raised under organic management from the last third of gestation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since the requirements of organic swine systems require outdoor access and greater space requirements per animal than conventional systems, breeds and breeding management are very important for producers. (wikipedia.org)
  • pigs
  • Integrated farming systems involving both crop and livestock production in a closed system can reduce financial risk for the producer, since organic producers generally receive premiums or higher prices for their products sold that cover and possibly reduce disease risk so long as there is no outside contact with other pigs or animals, such as cows, or poultry. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although
  • Against this hypothesis stands the fact that when the brown rat had become common in this country, it was unknown in Norway, although there was a small animal like a rat, but really a lemming, which made its home there. (wikipedia.org)
  • myth
  • contrary to popular myth, neither humans nor animals can "swallow their tongue" during a seizure so it is safest to stay well away from their mouth during one. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Significant reductions in the parasite load in liver, spleen, bone marrow and draining lymph nodes were found in these animals. (cambridge.org)
  • Health
  • and (3) reasonable medical care at times and to the extent available and necessary to maintain the animal in good health. (wikipedia.org)
  • canis
  • In nonhuman animals, Babesia canis rossi, Babesia bigemina, and Babesia bovis cause particularly severe forms of the disease, including a severe haemolytic anaemia, with positive erythrocyte-in-saline-agglutination test indicating an immune-mediated component to the haemolysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • medication
  • But self-medication has also been identified in animals with no capability for abstract reasoning and no opportunity to learn from their elders. (the-scientist.com)

  • Greek
  • The use of Protozoa as a formal taxon has been discouraged by some recent researchers, mainly because the term, which is formed from the Greek protos "first" + zoia, plural of zoion, "animal", implies kinship with animals (metazoa) and promotes an arbitrary separation of "animal-like" from "plant-like" organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • initially
  • Vaccine was maintained initially through arm-to-arm transfer and later through production on the skin of animals, and bacteriological sterility was impossible. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] In bovine species, the organism causes hemolytic anemia, so an infected animal shows pale mucous membranes initially. (wikipedia.org)
  • Products
  • Zoonotic transmission can occur in any context in which there is companionistic (pets), economic (farming, etc.), predatory (hunting, butchering or consuming wild game) or research contact with or consumption of animals, animal products, or animal derivatives (vaccines, etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • Integrated farming systems involving both crop and livestock production in a closed system can reduce financial risk for the producer, since organic producers generally receive premiums or higher prices for their products sold that cover and possibly reduce disease risk so long as there is no outside contact with other pigs or animals, such as cows, or poultry. (wikipedia.org)
  • plants
  • There is also information about poisonings from toxic animals and plants. (dmoztools.net)
  • In 1848, in light of advancements in cell theory pioneered by Theodor Schwann and Matthias Schleiden, the anatomist and zoologist C.T. von Siebold proposed that the bodies of microorganisms such as ciliates and amoebae were made up of single cells, similar to those from which the multicellular tissues of plants and animals were constructed. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a phylum under Animalia, the Protozoa were firmly rooted in the old "two-kingdom" classification of life, according to which all living beings were classified as either animals or plants. (wikipedia.org)
  • As long as this scheme remained dominant, the protozoa were understood to be animals and studied in departments of Zoology, while photosynthetic microorganisms and microscopic fungi-the so-called Protophyta-were assigned to the Plants, and studied in departments of Botany. (wikipedia.org)
  • Criticism of this system began in the latter half of the 19th century, with the realization that many organisms met the criteria for inclusion among both plants and animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1860, John Hogg argued against the use of "protozoa", on the grounds that "naturalists are divided in opinion-and probably some will ever continue so-whether many of these organisms, or living beings, are animals or plants. (wikipedia.org)
  • sick
  • The plant didn't provide nutrients to the chimpanzee, and is rarely used by healthy chimps, but sick animals are commonly observed ingesting the plant, and their symptoms usually resolve soon after. (the-scientist.com)
  • small
  • Against this hypothesis stands the fact that when the brown rat had become common in this country, it was unknown in Norway, although there was a small animal like a rat, but really a lemming, which made its home there. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cats can hear sounds too faint or too high in frequency for human ears, such as those made by mice and other small animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • cats
  • Between 70,000 and 100,000 years ago the animal gave rise to the genetic lineage that eventually produced all domesticated cats, having diverged from the Near Eastern wildcat around 8,000 BC in the Middle East. (wikipedia.org)
  • made
  • The definition of Protozoa as a phylum or sub-kingdom made up of "unicellular animals" was adopted by the zoologist Otto Bütschli-celebrated at his centenary as the "architect of protozoology"-and the term came into wide use. (wikipedia.org)
  • plant
  • In Hoggs's conception, the animal and plant kingdoms were likened to two great "pyramids" blending at their bases in the Kingdom Primigenum. (wikipedia.org)
