Could stress hormones be measured in cat urine?

Catecholamines can be used to evaluate neuroendocrine tumors, stress, and potentially pain, but catecholamines degrade rapidly. Their metabolites normetanephrine (NME) and metanephrine (ME) have

Orthopedic pain in large animals

With the help of the latest advancements in objective movement analysis systems and new methods in identifying pain behaviours, we wish to better understand the connection between irregular movement

From young horse

Researchers have noted that many horses that train and compete move with an asymmetric movement pattern. Today, we do not know whether such asymmetries are pain-triggered and caused by the exercise

Movement asymmetries in sound and lame riding horses

Emma Persson-Sjödin started as as doctoral student in 2015 with Marie Rhodin as her supervisor. The title of her doctoral project is ”Movement asymmetries in sound and lame riding horses.” Lameness

Patellartendinosis

Soft tissues around the kneecap (patella) as a cause of equine lameness is an area yet to be scientifically investigated but that is often clinically treated with “alternative” methods without an

Laterality

Lameness in animals is the most obvious sign of orthopaedic pain that animals cannot verbalise. Asymmetries of vertical movement, laterality, of different body components is useful measurement of

Icelandic Horses

In this research project, we are studying how icelandic horses change their movement pattern in tölting, flying pace and impure trot. As of now, there is no knowledge of how we can best detect

Selection on the Colombian paso horse's gaits has produced kinematic differences partly explained by the DMRT3 gene

The horse breed Colombian paso is known for having three extra gaits in addition to walk, trot and canter. The gaits are called paso fino, trocha and Colombian trot, with the horses being divided
