Oral vaccination against swine erysipelas--field experiences in Croatia.
In order to prove the effects of mass application of oral erysipelas vaccine via drinking water, in a farrow-to-finish production unit in Croatia, the growing-finishing animals were divided into 3 groups and treated as follows:--Group 1 (n=199) was vaccinated intramuscularly against swine erysipelas...
Optimising spring oral vaccination campaigns of foxes against rabies.
To optimise spring vaccination campaigns the following set of data has been analysed; (i) population dynamics of the red fox, (ii) onset and progress of the reproductive season, and (iii) maternal immunity and the immune response of fox cubs to oral vaccination. The field data originated from foxes...
Effects of antiepileptic drugs carbamazepine and sodium valproate on fertility of male rats.
The effects of carbamazepine and sodium valproate on fertility of male rats were studied. The tested drugs were given orally to male rats for 30 and 60 consecutive days. Mating performance, sex organs weights, semen quality, plasma concentrations of sexual hormones as well as histopathological findi...
Molecular physiology of colonic epithelial sodium absorption.
The colon is the final site for fluid and electrolyte conservation in the gastrointestinal system. Active absorption of sodium ions generates driving forces for the movement of fluid and other electrolytes, and is under hormonal control of mineralocorticoids for maintaining body homeostasis. Sodium...
[Meniscus injuries in dogs with rupture of the cruciate ligament].
In a period of 18 months, 132 stifle joints of 125 dogs with a partial or complete rupture of the cranial cruciate ligament were examined according to a systematic protocol at the Clinic for Small Animals of the School of Veterinary Medicine, Hannover, Germany.

[Guidelines for prevention and therapy in ecological animal farms as in the example of bovine mastitis].
In ecological farming mastitis is the dominating disease in dairy cattle. The regular prophylactic use of antibiotics in farm animals is forbidden, in therapy antibiosis is restricted. A solution of this problem could be a program of systematic homeopathic prophylaxis as well as a standardised homeo...
[Problems in the energy and nutritional requirements of feeding and welfare of food producing animals].
The efforts in optimizing feeding conditions of food producing animals in the past were focussed primarily on promoting performance and/or the products' quality (MEYER 1997). In spite of great success in this direction various risks occur due to the conflict between the increased requirements on the...
Keeping of reptiles in captivity is permanently increasing. As there exists such a great number of species of reptiles, the conditions of the natural habitat of the kept species have to be imitated as exactly as possible. Disorders in reptiles are often caused by inadequate maintainance.
[Elimination of fodder tossing by cattle through anti-fodder tossing devices].
In tie-up stalls and occasionally in other husbandry systems, some cattle toss their fodder with mouth, ridge of nose, or horn in the direction of their trunk. This behaviour is responsible for fodder losses, dirtying of the barn, and the gaps of the stable floors are often blocked and so loose thei...
[Reactions of young dairy calves and young suckling calves from the mother cow herds to transportation induced stress--effects of age and re...
Single box reared dairy calves (TK) and suckler calves (SK) from a mother cow herd were exposed to uniformly performed short-haul road transports. Long lasting measurements by way of heart rate recording, body temperature, body weight and blood sampling before and just after finishing transport and...
