High impact information on Animals, Zoo

  • The similarity of neuropathology and PrP immunostaining patterns in experimentally infected animals to those observed in both symptomatic and asymptomatic animals in primate centers suggests that BSE contamination of zoo animals may have been more widespread than is generally appreciated [1].
  • However, FDA regulations do not mention horses or zoo animals, and those who would ensure the welfare of these species by supplementing Se-deficient diets may be in violation of FDA interpretation of the law [2].
  • Dramatic effects of chitin and chitosan on wound healing were demonstrated in field cases of many small animals (dogs and cats), food animals (338 cows) and 142 zoo animals [3].
  • The concentrations of dry matter, cholesterol, saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, and 29 fatty acids were measured in four size categories of whole mice (Mus domesticus) that are commonly fed to zoo animals [4].
  • Cardiomyopathy and vitamin E deficiency in zoo animals and birds [5].
