Quick Bibliography Series
Bibliographies in the Quick Bibliography Series of the National Agricultural Library, are intended primarily for current awareness, and as the title of the series implies, are not indepth exhaustive bibliographies on any given subject. However, the citations are a substantial resource for recent investigations on a given topic. They also serve the purpose of bringing the literature of agriculture to the interested user who, in many cases, could not access it by any other means. The bibliographies are derived from computerized on-line searches of the AGRICOLA data base. Timeliness of topic and evidence of extensive interest are the selection criteria.

The author/searcher determines the purpose, length, and search strategy of the Quick Bibliography. Information regarding these is available upon request from the author/searcher.

Copies of this bibliography may be made or used for distribution without prior approval. The inclusion or omission of a particular publication or citation may not be construed as endorsement or disapproval.

Abstract: Eight adult New Zealand White rabbits were exposed individually, in
series, to each of 23 effective temperatures (teff) until body temperature
(tb) increased 1.1 degree C or for a period of 2 hours. Body temperature was
measured to the nearest 0.1 degree C using FM radio transmitters in the
pre-test (baseline) condition and at 2 minute intervals during the test
conditions where teff ranged between 21.7 and 34.7 degrees C. The frequency at
which the rabbits displayed a 1.1 degree C rise in tb was related to the
magnitude of the teff, with 100% of the rabbits manifesting this change at
teff greater than 30.2 degrees C. At teff of 28.4 through 30.2 degrees C,
some, but not all, of the rabbits showed a 1.1 degree C rise in tb whereas
none displayed the 1.1 degree C rise in tb at teff below 28.4 degrees C. The
mean time necessary for the 1.1 degree C rise in tb was negatively correlated
(P < 0.01) to the magnitude of the teff. The significantly (P < 0.01) elevated
plasma corticosterone in rabbits exhibiting 0.6 degrees C and 1.1 degree C
rise in tb suggests that those animals were stressed physiologically by the
experimental procedure. It is concluded that the conditions associated with
increased tb induce physiological changes commonly associated with stressors
and that the techniques reported herein should be useful in establishing upper
environmental temperature limits for housing rabbits.

Abstract: Current trends in research on craniofacial syndromes have led to
enhanced interest in the cranial base as a contributory factor in the
development of normal and abnormal midfacial structure. Indeed, attention has
focused upon one particular growth plate in the posterior cranial base, the
sphenooccipital synchondrosis, since it has been shown that alterations in
this structure are associated with profound changes in craniofacial growth. In
this report we describe a surgical approach to the cranial base of the rabbit
that is safe, simple and reliable. It is applicable to neonatal as well as
adult rabbits.

Descriptors: Laboratory animals; Stomach; Morphology; Microscopy

Abstract: Histomorphology of the stomach of mouse, rat, hamster, guineapig,
gerbil, and rabbit was studied. Although a common structural basis existed in
the stomach between these species, the occurrence and distribution of various
cells in gastric glands differed considerably between them. In mice, rats,
hamsters and gerbils, the lower one-third of the glandular lamina propria was
seemingly occupied by a varying proportion of parietal and chief cells. In
rabbits, the predominantly occurring chief cells were distributed in lower
three-quarters of the glands intermingling with parietal cells, but in
guineapigs the chief cells were not discernible. In hamsters, there was,
however, a gradual increase of chief cells from the junction between
nonglandular-glandular stomach toward the pyloric region. In all these
species, parietal cells were the predominant cell type in the upper half to
upper one-third of the gastric glands, often extending up to the neck of the
glands interspersing between mucus neck cells and occasionally between chief
cells.

Abstract: Few safe and effective anesthesia regimens have been described for
use in rabbits, partially because of the susceptibility of this species to
sometimes fatal respiratory depression. Although inhalant anesthetics are
generally safer than injectable anesthetics, their use may be limited by lack
of equipment or facilities. This study was conducted to compare effects of
several injectable anesthetics in rabbits on response to noxious stimuli,
heart rate, respiratory rate, and rectal temperature. Six injectable
anesthetic combinations were administered to rabbits:
xylazine-ethyl-(l-methyl-propyl) malonyl-thio-urea salt (EMTU), ketamine-EMTU,
xylazine-pentobarbital, xylazine-acepromazine-ketamine (XAK), ketamine-chloral
hydrate, and ketamine-xylazine. All combinations induced a depression of
respiratory rate. Although rectal temperature values were reduced to some
degree in each group, the most profound hypothermia was induced by XAK. The
combination that induced the longest duration of anesthesia was XAK. It was
concluded that XAK was preferable for longer periods of anesthesia (60 to 120
minutes), although it induces severe hypothermia. For short periods of
anesthesia, xylazine-pentobarbital, xylazine-EMTU, or ketamine-xylazine were
deemed adequate; however, xylazine-EMTU induced the best survivability and
consistency.

Abstract: The testes of 81 Himalayan rabbits, controls in toxicity studies,
and 113 purpose-bred rabbits of various age groups from birth to 2 years were
studied. In mature male rabbits, regressive changes in the seminiferous
tubules including the multinucleated spermatid giant cells were common and
showed a tendency for age-related and seasonal differences. The finding is
considered as a remnant of the previous seasonal and possibly also social
testicular regression in wild living animals. The giant cells develop from the
syncytium of the germinative epithelium and have parallels in phylogenesis.

Abstract: Diversification into alternative enterprises appears to be gaining
in popularity and economic importance as a way to supplement family income and
to provide alternative sources of high-quality food. However, potential rabbit
producers lack information about investment requirements and production and
marketing costs. The objective of this study was to determine the most
profitable operation of small-scale rabbit production by estimating the costs
and returns, net present values, and payback periods of two rabbit production
systems. Despite a difference in the net income generated, a cash surplus
occurred for both systems at the end of the third year. This surplus was the
return to land, family labor, and management. Thus, rabbit enterprises may
provide economic opportunities for farm families who have limited land and
capital.

Abstract: We investigated the influence of the cell cycle stage of the
nuclear donor on prematurely condensed chromatin (PCC) and spindle morphology
and on chromosome constitution in rabbit nuclear transplant embryos. The
configuration of PCC following nuclear transplantation with G1, early S, and
late S phase donor nuclei (G1, early S, and late S transplants, respectively)
was characterized in whole mounts and chromosome spreads. In addition, the
influence of the donor cell cycle stage on chromosome constitution in cleavage
stage-manipulated embryos was determined. Within 2 h after fusion of the donor
blastomere, the recipient oocyte cytoplasm was able to induce formation de
novo of a metaphase plate associated with a spindle in G1, early S, and late S
transplants. Metaphase chromosomes and spindle were intact in most cases of
PCC in G1 transplants. However, these structures displayed minor abnormalities
in early S transplants and gross abnormalities in late S transplants, such as
incomplete or absent spindle formation and incomplete chromatin condensation.
Normal chromosomes were present in G1 and early S transplants, whereas
chromosome abnormalities were detected in late S transplants. The results
indicate that morphology of prematurely condensed G1 and early S chromatin has
a minor influence on chromosome constitution of manipulated embryos. That of
late S chromatin, however, affects chromosome constitution in embryos and may
account for reduced development of nuclear transplant embryos when late S
phase donor nuclei are used.

Abstract: We examined the efficacy of ivermectin in the control of ear mites
(Psoroptes cuniculi) in rabbits. The study involved 40 female and 35 male
rabbits that were known to be naturally infested with ear mites. After a
period of acclimation to the animal care facilities, the rabbits were ranked
on the visual appearance of any ear lesion and the number of mites on
glycerin-dipped ear swabs. The rabbits were then randomly assigned to 1 of 4
treatment groups; vehicle only (group 1), 50 micrograms of ivermectin/kg of
body weight (group 2), 100 micrograms of ivermectin/kg (group 3) and 200
micrograms of ivermectin/kg (group 4). The rabbits were treated by SC
injections on day 0 and day 14 of the trial; thus, the total dose of
ivermectin given to groups 1 through 4, was 0, 100, 200, or 400 micrograms/kg,
respectively. The study ended 2 weeks after the last treatment. Ear lesions of
the treated rabbits improved significantly (P < 0.001). By 28 days after the
first treatment, the mean number of mites on the ear swabs (both ears) was
57.5 for untreated rabbits and 9.1, 0.5, and 2.5, respectively, for rabbits in
groups 2, 3, and 4. The mean number of mites recovered from the ears of the
untreated rabbits at necropsy was 24,297. For groups 2, 3, and 4, the mean
number of mites recovered from the ears was 5,352, 96, and 96, respectively.
The efficacy of treatment with a total dose of 100 micrograms/kg was 77.96%,
with 200 micrograms/kg was 99.61%, and for 400 micrograms/kg was 99.61%.

Abstract: Rabbits naturally infested with ear mites were treated with
ivermectin injection for cattle, subcutaneously at the rate of 400 mcg/kg;
which was repeated in 15 to 17 days. Rabbits treated as described and housed
in a conventional vivarium environment were found to be free of mites during a
subsequent 33 to 139 day observation period. Side effects were minimal and
associated with occasional transient discomfort at the injection site.
Ivermectin appears to be safe and effective for treating rabbits with ear
mites. The prospects of eradicating mites from infested rabbit colonies using
this method of treatment is promising.

Abstract: The immobility response (IR) was studied in rabbits to evaluate its
analgesic properties and reliability as a method of restraint. The
participation of the endogenous opioid system in IR was studied indirectly by
evaluating the effects of the narcotic antagonist naloxone on this phenomenon.
Twenty-four adult New Zealand White rabbits were subjected to six noxious
stimuli while restrained by IR and while restrained under control conditions.
Testing on each animal was repeated under both conditions following the
administration of naloxone. The noxious stimuli consisted of three levels of
electric shock (10 volts, 30 volts, and 50 volts) applied to the shaved
forearm, and mechanical pressure applied to the pinna, front toe, and hind
toe. Withdrawal and changes in blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration
were used as indicators of pain perception. Distress associated with noxious
electrical and pressure stimulation was significantly reduced by IR, which
suggested that the phenomenon does have a significant analgesic component.
However, the rabbits showed wide variability in their susceptibility to IR
induction, and even animals which did not withdraw in response to noxious
stimulation under IR sometimes exhibited physiological changes suggestive of
distress. Therefore, IR should not be considered as a reliable or humane
alternative to analgesic/anesthetic drugs for laboratory rabbits. Naloxone had
little effect on IR or IR-associated analgesia.

Abstract: During a twelve month period of observation, the behavioural
repertoire of group housed rabbits was found to be greatly enhanced compared
with that of singly caged rabbits. Increased space which allowed freedom of
movement in all directions, together with environmental enrichment,
significantly improved the quality of life. The group housed rabbits' ability
to interact with their peers lead to varying amounts of aggression and the
probable establishment of a hierarchical order. This may be disadvantageous
for the lower ranking animals, although perhaps not as disadvantageous as life
in solitary confinement.

whereas in 24 other rabbits the food was limited to the amount eaten by the
lowest consumer of the group to reduce individual variability in total amount
of food consumed. Twice a day, half of the rabbits were handled carefully, the
other half had normal laboratory practice contact with their caretaker. Feed
intake and amount of atherosclerosis were determined for all experimental
animals, while for the handled animals behavioural parameters and changes were
recorded daily and per animal. On average the handled and non-handled rabbits
took the same amount of food per week, although there were large individual
differences. The handled animals showed some behavioural adaptation to being
handled. Handling had no influence on atherosclerosis size; this latter
measure was only roughly determined by the amount of CHOL food eaten.

Abstract: Reproductive abnormalities in New Zealand White rabbits at a large
commercial rabbitry were linked to an excess of dietary retinyl acetate. Fetal
resorptions, abortions, and stillbirths were common in pregnant does.
Examination of aborted and stillborn fetuses disclosed hydrocephalus,
microencephaly, and cleft palate. Analysis of the commercially prepared feed
disclosed a total vitamin A content of 102,278 IU/kg, of which 97,618 IU was
retinyl acetate (recommended total vitamin A concentrations are 6,000 to
12,000 IU/kg). Levels of vitamin A in the plasma of does with reproductive
disorders were 517 to 1,667 ng/ml (normal level is 300 ng/ml), and liver
levels were 2,070 to 12,854 micrograms/g (normal range is 50 to 300
micrograms/g).

Abstract: The effect of beta-carotene on reproduction traits in rabbits was
studied in 509 (superovulated and normally ovulated) donors and 239 recipients
by using embryo/gene transfer performed at 2 different locations. All of the
bucks and the half of the females were fed a diet supplemented with 40 mg
synthetic beta-carotene (Rovimix)/kg feed. Embryos at the pronucleus stage
were collected 19 to 21 hours after induction of ovulation with human
chorionic gonadotropin (hCG); they were then microinjected into the male
pronucleus and transferred to synchronized recipients. Data were obtained from
the time when the donors and recipients were caged, until the pups resulting
from the embryo transfers were weaned. Supplemented beta-carotene did not
affect most of the 30 traits that were analyzed. However superovulated donors
in Project 2 that received the beta-carotene enriched diet had a 14% lighter
ovary weight (P < 0.05) and less than half of the oocytes were unfertilized (P
< 0.05). In Project 1 (beta-carotene group) there was a greater number of pups
born (36%, P < 0.05) and more of these pups were born alive (53%, P < 0.05).

Abstract: 1. In vivo metabolism of scopolamine was studied in rats, mice,
guinea pigs and rabbits. The structures of eight urinary metabolites including
unchanged drug were elucidated by mass and nuclear magnetic resonance
spectrometry. Determination of these metabolites was achieved by a g.l.c.
method using a semi-capillary column. 2. The major metabolites in rats were
the three phenolic metabolites, p-hydroxy-, m-hydroxy- and
p-hydroxy-m-methoxy-scopolamine. 3. Significant intra-species difference of
the metabolism was observed in rabbits. Tropic acid was the major metabolite
in two rabbits out of three, while the other rabbit excreted mainly unchanged
scopolamine, accompanied by five metabolites. Tropic acid was also the major
metabolite in guinea pigs, but was of minor importance in mice. 4. The
dehydrated metabolites, aposcopolamine and aponorscopolamine, were abundantly
excreted in guinea pigs, moderately in mice, and least in rabbits and rats. 5.
Excretion of glucuronide conjugates of scopolamine and norscopolamine were
high in mice compared with other species. On the other hand, phenolic
metabolites in rat urine, and tropic acid in rabbit and guinea pig urine, were
excreted as the free forms. 6. These results indicate that scopolamine
metabolism is highly species-specific.

Abstract: Blood gas parameters and acid-base balance values were determined
in adult pregnant New Zealand rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in standard
laboratory housing conditions and during anaesthesia with an association of
ketamine-chlorpromazine, administered before surgical procedures. All the
variables were also studied in adult non-pregnant female, used as controls. No
differences in pH, sO2c, O2Hb, COHb, sO2m and a-vDO2 were found between
pregnant and non-pregnant rabbits in physiological conditions and during
anaesthesia. Ketamine-chlorpromazine and pregnancy seemed to change the other
parameters used to assess the acid-base balance and the oxygenation
conditions. Anaesthesia affected only Hb, O2Ct, O2Cap, C2O2 and P50. The
additive effect of pregnancy and anaesthesia modified pCO2, PO2, HCO3-, TCO2,
BEb, SBC, BEecf, A-aDO2, RI, MetHb, RHb, CaO2 and CvO2. The patterns described
are close to those of other species, suggesting the New Zealand rabbit might
be a reliable animal model for monitoring selected variables.

Abstract: Plasmids have not been reported for isolates of Pasteurella
multocida from rabbits. We assayed 28 isolates of rabbit P. multocida for
plasmids and sought to determine whether or not plasmid presence correlated
with clinical or pathologic findings, serotype, toxin production, possession
of pili, or biochemical characteristics. Fourteen isolates bore a single 1.6
Md (covalently closed circular form in 0.7% agarose gels) plasmid. An
additional isolate had two plasmids which migrated as a closely-spaced
doublet, centered around 1.6 Md. Eleven isolates appeared to have identical
plasmids, according to Hae III and Hinf I digests. The apparent linear size of
this common plasmid in 2% agarose gels was 2.1 Md, as calculated from the sums
of the sizes of Hae III or Hinf I digestion fragments. Linearization of the
common plasmid with Msp I produced an apparent size of 2.5 Md in 0.7% agarose
gels. No correlations between presence of the common plasmid and somatic
serotype, toxigenicity, presence of pili, antimicrobial resistance, selected
biochemical characteristics, anatomic site from which the bacteria were
cultured, or disease status of the host were found.

Susceptibility; Breed differences; Disease resistance

Abstract: Pasteurella multocida A:3 was isolated during an outbreak of
pasteurellosis in Flemish Giant (FG) rabbits. Since New Zealand White (NZW)
rabbits housed in the same room were not as severely affected as FG rabbits,
experimental inoculation was undertaken to determine if FG rabbits were more
susceptible than NZW rabbits to pasteurellosis induced by this isolate.
Rabbits of each breed were inoculated with P. multocida A:3 and observed for 3
weeks. Four of 5 FG rabbits developed severe clinical disease on days 6, 9, 12
and 14 after inoculation; whereas, the one affected NZW rabbit became ill 14
days after inoculation. All rabbits with clinical disease developed
fibrinosuppurative pleuritis, pyothorax and pneumonia which was more severe in
FG than NZW rabbits. At necropsy, P. multocida A:3 was isolated from multiple
sites of the diseased rabbits. No significant difference (P = 0.099) in the
prevalence of lesions between the two breeds was found; however, the score of
pneumonia and pleuritis was 3 times greater in FG rabbits than NZW rabbits.

Abstract: Significant physiological variations that could influence
experimental outcomes have been described in laboratory animals following
shipping. The objective of the present study was to monitor a variety of
physiologic parameters in rabbits after shipping, and to evaluate the time
necessary for stabilization of these variables in the new environment. Data
indicate that rabbits develop anorexia, hyperglycemia, neutrophilia,
lymphopenia and elevated plasma cortisol concentrations immediately after
shipping. Most of these effects abate within 2 days after arrival, suggesting
that a minimum stabilization period of 48 hours after shipping is advisable
prior to use of rabbits in experimental paradigms.

Abstract: Although the Draize eye irritation test has provided important and
useful information for eye safety assessments, considerable effort has been
directed toward refining the assay procedure, reducing the number of animals
used, and replacing this assay with alternative methods. The low-volume eye
test (LVET) is a refinement of the Draize eye irritation test that uses 1/10
the volume of test substance placed directly on the cornea. The level and
duration of eye irritation in the LVET are less than those in the Draize
procedure, which means that it is a less stressful test. Furthermore, LVETs
are more predictive of human response. Statistical studies have been conducted
to determine the effects of reducing the number of animals used in the Draize
test. These results suggested that a three-animal test would provide
essentially the same information as the six-animal test. A similar analysis
has not been performed on results from the LVET. Accordingly, the present
study was undertaken to evaluate previously existing LVET data to determine if
the number of animals used in a LVET can be decreased as has been shown for
the Draize test. The results of the analysis are consistent with the findings
of earlier evaluations of classical Draize data. Three-animal subsets from 119
six-animal LVETs provided the correct classification greater than 92% of the
time for three different classification schemes. Furthermore, the
discrepancies between the three-animal subsets and the six-animal maximum
average score tended to be smaller than those observed for the Draize test.
The analysis suggests that a three-animal LVET will provide an eye irritation
classification similar to that obtained from a six-animal study.

Abstract: Extract: Unfractionated gliadin and its alpha, beta, gamma and
omega-gliadin subfractions were used as rabbit immunogens. The antisera were
characterized by (1) Ouchterlony double diffusion, (2) binding of
125I-labelled gliadin subfractions, (3) inhibition by several gliadin
subfractions of binding between gamma-gliadin antiserum and 125I-labelled
gamma-gliadin. Double diffusion showed identical cross-reactivity between the
antisera and the gliadin subfractions with the exception of omega-gliadin.
Precipitin lines of partial identity with gliadin were observed against rye
secalins and barley hordeins but not oat avenins or maize zeins. Binding was
observed between unfractionated 125I-labelled alph-, beta-, gamma-, and
omega-gladians and all the antisera. There was binding of 125I-labelled
omega-gliadin to the omega-gliadin antiserum but poor binding of 125I-labelled
omega-gliadin to unfractionated alpha, beta, and gamma-gliadin antisera.
Competitive inhibition of binding between 125I-labelled gamma-gliadin and
gamma-gliadin antiserum diluted 1:250 (v/v) demonstrated similar competition
between alpha, beta, and gamma-gliadins and this antiserum but poor
competition between omega-gliadin, wheat glutenins, albumins and globulins,
rye secalins, barley hordeins and oat avenins. These findings suggest that
there is a good correlation between the antigenic structure of gliadin
proteins and their toxicity to patients with coeliac disease. (Author)

Abstract: The present study characterized the profile of nuclear remodeling
in nuclear transplant rabbit embryos and investigated the relationship between
chromatin behavior after transfer and embryo development. The developmental
potential and pattern of remodeling of donor nuclei from cleavage-, morula-,
and blastocyst- (inner cell mass, ICM, and trophectoderm, TE) stage donors
were evaluated. In addition, we determined whether a modification in the
synchrony between blastomere fusion and oocyte activation altered the profile
of nuclear remodeling and affected development of reconstituted embryos.
Development to blastocysts similar with 8- and 32-cell-stage donor nuclei (42%
and 33%, respectively, p > 0.1). However, it was reduced with ICM transplants
(17%, p < 0.05), and development of TE transplants did not progress beyond the
8-cell stage. Upon blastomere fusion into nonactivated oocyte cytoplasm,
nuclear remodeling was characterized by premature chromosome condensation
(PCC), followed by pronuclear (PN) formation and swelling. PCC occurred
synchronously within 1.2-1.5 h post-fusion with all stages of donor nuclei (p
> 0.1). PN formation in 8- and 32-cell transplants occurred approximately 4 h
after fusion, and was synchronous to that of female pronuclei in activated
oocytes; however, it was delayed in ICM and TE transplants (p < 0.01). With
all stages of donor nuclei, final nuclear diameter was similar to, or larger
than, that of female pronuclei. Fusion to activated oocyte cytoplasm, as
opposed to nonactivated cytoplasm, prevented PCC and extensive nuclear
swelling (16.0 +/- 0.7 vs. 30 +/- 0.7 micromole, respectively, p < 0.01).
Nuclear diameter in early embryos was smaller (p < 0.01), and development to
blastocysts was reduced (p < 0.05). The results indicate that remodeling of
the donor nucleus is not essential for development to blastocysts; however, it
is beneficial. Furthermore, complete reprogramming seems possible only after
remodeling of the donor nucleus, i.

Abstract: Enhancing the psychological well-being of laboratory animals has
received much attention recently. Although many studies have been undertaken
to determine the effects of cage enrichment techniques on dogs and nonhuman
primates, other than scant empirical observations, little has been done to
measure these events objectively in lagomorphs. We studied adult female New
Zealand White (NZW) rabbits to learn if, when given the opportunity,
individual rabbits would use different enrichment objects placed in their
cages, and to determine if rabbits preferred to be in proximity to one
another, or apart. Three different objects were evaluated with eight rabbits
individually housed in conventional cages. Each object introduced into
individual rabbit cages stimulated substantial interaction, especially chewing
behavior. Eight other rabbits were pair-housed in a modified caging system
with a special access port between two separate cages. When given a choice,
rabbits preferred to be in the same cage with other rabbits. In both studies,
individual behaviors were monitored, as well as either the type of interaction
and percentage of observations spent with each object or, in the housing
study, percentage of observations involved with different types of activity,
and relative location of the paired rabbits.

Abstract: The potential advantage of corporate vigilance to rabbit,
Oryctolagus cuniculus, groups was studied in free-ranging rabbits that
associated and cohabited basically in male-female 'consorting' pairs. Evening
observations were conducted of rabbits during the breeding season. Levels of
vigilance of an individual rabbit during feeding decreased with proximity to
that rabbit's 'consort'. In contrast, rabbits increased their vigilance in the
presence of greater numbers of non-consort rabbits either nearby or over 12 m
away. An experiment using stuffed animals as stimulus objects indicated that
the presence of a strange rabbit or of a fox increased the proportion of time
that rabbits spent vigilant. Non-social factors also influenced vigilance and
feeding. In particular, vigilance decreased as the evening proceeded and with
higher temperature. For bucks only, it also decreased as the season advanced.

Spontaneous and odour-induced chin marking in domestic female rabbits.

Ovariectomized females; Light regime; Estrus; Sexual behavior

Abstract: In the European rabbit, Oryctolagus cuniculus, chin marking is one
of the most conspicuous forms of olfactory communication. In an investigation
of factors influencing the expression of this behaviour in females, the
marking frequency of seven intact and three ovariectomized does was tested
over a 12-month period by placing them individually for 10 min each day in an
arena containing three bricks. In the intact does but not in the
ovariectomized ones, the frequency of chinning was increased by experimental
long days and suppressed by experimental short days within 1-2 weeks of
reversing the light regime. These changes were accompanied by clear
alterations in the size and colour of the vulva, indicating that oestrus was
also suppressed under the short-day conditions. However, presenting does with
bricks marked by donor animals resulted in a significant increase in the
frequency of chinning independent of photoperiod. Moreover, does appeared to
distinguish between donors, directing marks preferentially to bricks marked by
males rather than females, bricks marked by long-day rather than short-day
donors, and those marked with chin gland secretion rather than with donors'
urine or with carrot or lemon juice. Thus, while the finding that chinning
activity was positively correlated with oestrus is consistent with the
hypothesis that in females this behaviour is a form of sexual advertisement,
the differential response shown to the chin marks of individual donors, even
by non-oestrous does, suggests other, non-sexual functions for the
chemosignals in chin gland secretion.

Abstract: An assessment was made of the effects of topical application of a
eutectic mixture of local anaesthetics (EMLA cream) in a number of species of
laboratory animals. Application of EMLA cream enabled percutaneous insertion
of catheters into the cephalic vein in dogs and cats and the marginal ear vein
in rabbits without causing any detectable pain or discomfort. Application to
the tail in rats prior to percutaneous cannulation of the lateral tail vein
did not produce a significant reduction in the behavioural responses to
venepuncture. EMLA cream represents a useful refinement of current techniques
for intravenous injection in some species, and is especially valuable when the
procedure is to be undertaken by an inexperienced operator.

Abstract: The penetrative captive bolt pistol was tested on dogs (Canis
familiaris) and rabbits (Oryctolagus cunniculi) to assess if it is a humane
method of euthanasia to use when a physical method is required. The bolt was
placed directly on the skull at the intersection of lines drawn from the
lateral canthus of each eye to the opposite ear, and fired. In all cases,
consciousness appeared to be lost immediately as evidenced by motoric collapse
of the animal and loss of the corneal reflex. The only movement noted appeared
to be reflex in nature. In order to determine the time of onset of brain
death, the auditory evoked potential (AEP) and electroencephalogram (EEG) were
measured in dogs. Within 15 seconds after firing the pistol, organized AEP
activity could not be detected above the medulla and EEG activity became
isoelectric. These findings suggest that cerebral death occurred almost
immediately and, therefore, the captive bolt pistol is a humane method of
euthanasia.

Abstract: Although rabbit ear vessels are readily accessible, the veins can
collapse and thrombose after multiple venipunctures, and the artery may
undergo vasospasm when repeatedly catheterized. Twenty-two male and female New
Zealand White rabbits were cannulated with the catheter tip located in the
jugular vein. The mean life of the port was noted to be approximately 3.5
months, with ranges of 3 days to 10 months. With proper maintenance and care,
vascular access ports are a useful alternative to multiple venipuncture for
long-term studies, thereby sparing marginal and central vessels and minimizing
stress to both animals and investigators.
