Acute stress is known to affect blood haematological and blood chemistry values of animals. Few studies have comprehensively investigated this issue with specific regards to ostriches. The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of transport over varying distances on specific blood metabolites associated with stress in other animals, using an approach which would allow for quantification of the relative contributions of both psychological and metabolic stress. Sixteen ostriches were… CONTINUE READING
