Restraint increases afebrile body temperature but attenuates fever in Pekin ducks (Anas platyrhynchos).

Abstract

In mammals, procedures such as handling, restraint, or exposure to open spaces induces an increase in body temperature (T(b)). The increase in temperature shares some characteristics with pyrogen-induced fever and so is often called "stress fever." Birds also respond to acute handling with a stress fever, which may confound thermoregulatory studies that… (More)
