Cavia porcellus. Chauca de Zaldivar Produccion de cuyes en crianzas familiares en Peru. In : V Congreso. Latino americano de Cuyicultura, Venezuela,. Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. El objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar el pH de la carne de cobayo Cavia porcellus resultante de este manejo. El pH fue de 6. The pH of guinea pig Cavia porcellus meat from the welfare-deficient slaughtering in the Peruvian central Andes.
In Andean region of Peru is common to slaughter Guinea pig without lairage and stunning. The aim of this study was to evaluate the pH of meat of Guinea pig Cavia porcellus from the unsuitable welfare practices during slaughtering in the Peruvian central Andes. The pH of 60 guinea pig carcasses were analyzed at 0, 1, 6, 12 and 24 hours after the end of the slaughter process.
The pH was 6. This research evaluates the effect of mannan-oligosaccharide MOS on weight gain, feed conversion and mortality in female guinea pigs, three treatments were carried out: a Control, b MOS and c Growth Promoter Antibiotic for 10 consecutive weeks; no significant effects of the treatments on the variables evaluated were detected.
The experimental work was carried out in the experimental farm in the province of Azuay Paute. In inclusion of the oligosacchari Performances de production des cobayes Cavia porcellus L. Production performance of guinea pigs Cavia porcellus L. In Cameroon, guinea pigs raising is still practiced in kitchens and on the ground and their food is Jejuno-jejunal intussusception in a guinea pig Cavia porcellus. Full Text Available An approximately four-year-old male castrated guinea pig Cavia porcellus was presented for painful defecation with a hour history of hyporexia and intermittent episodes of rolling behavior.
Upon presentation the patient was quiet, alert, and responsive, and mildly hypothermic. Abdominal palpation revealed an approximately 2-cm long oblong mass within the caudal abdomen.
Abdominal radiographs revealed gastric dilation without volvulus and a peritoneal mass effect. The patient was euthanized following gastric reflux of brown malodorous fluid from his nares and oral cavity. A necropsy was performed and revealed a jejuno-jejunal intussusception causing mechanical gastrointestinal ileus, and gastric dilatation without volvulus. While non-obstructive gastrointestinal stasis is common and obstructive ileus is uncommon in guinea pigs, this report shows that intestinal intussusception is a differential in guinea pigs with ileus and gastric dilatation.
Prolactin family of the guinea pig, Cavia porcellus. Prolactin PRL is a multifunctional hormone with prominent roles in regulating growth and reproduction. The guinea pig Cavia porcellus has been extensively used in endocrine and reproduction research. In the present study, we used information derived from the public guinea pig genome database as a tool for identifying guinea pig PRL and PRL-related proteins. Guinea pig PRL exhibits prominent nucleotide and amino acid sequence differences when compared with PRLs of other eutherian mammals.
In contrast, guinea pig GH is highly conserved. They exhibited a more distant relationship to PRL and their expression was restricted to the placenta. In summary, we have developed a new set of research tools for investigating the biology of the PRL family in an important animal model, the guinea pig. Do young guinea pigs Cavia porcellus develop an attachment to inanimate objects?
Filial imprinting has been studied extensively in precocial birds. In these studies, inanimate objects were used as imprinting objects.
Although attachment to the parents is common in mammals, experiments with inanimate objects are rare and mostly restricted to guinea pigs Cavia porcellus.
Prevalence of fur mites Chirodiscoides caviae in pet guinea pigs Cavia porcellus in southern Italy. Chirodiscoides caviae is the most common fur mite affecting guinea pigs; infestation is generally asymptomatic. No studies have been published on the prevalence of such mites in guinea pigs in southern Italy. We sought to evaluate the prevalence and the clinical signs of C.
Clinical records of guinea pigs evaluated from August to July were retrospectively searched. In this retrospective matched case-control study, records of guinea pigs with evidence of C. The prevalence of C. Guinea pigs seen during the same time period, but without a diagnosis of C. Thirty-one guinea pigs The most frequently affected area was the lumbosacral region 38 of Guinea pigs in pet shops were more likely to be affected by C.
Chirodiscoides mites should be sought in guinea pigs, particularly in animals coming from pet shops. A comparative analysis of the intestinal metagenomes present in guinea pigs Cavia porcellus and humans Homo sapiens.
Background: Guinea pig Cavia porcellus is an important model for human intestinal research. We have characterized the faecal microbiota of 60 guinea pigs using Illumina shotgun metagenomics, and used this data to compile a gene catalogue of its prevalent microbiota.
Subsequently, we compared th Le cobaye Cavia porcellus L. Guinea pig Cavia porcellus farming for meat production remains a marginalised activity in Cameroon in spite of the advantages this specie offers. With the view to promote its production, a national countrywide survey was carried out in order to evaluate the production systems and constraints.
Traditional guinea pig farming appears to be a secondary household activity undertaken by small farmers basically women. The extensive production system which reveals no management practices, integrates very well in the agricultural systems small livestock, food crops and natural forages production of the western highlands and southern forest zones of Cameroon.
Guinea pig productivity remains low due to many constraints such as predation, uncontrolled breeding, inbreeding, poor feeding, negative selection and lack of veterinary care. Nevertheless, guinea pig farming plays an important role in the well being of low income village dwellers as food security, cash savings and socio-cultural values within the populations of South Cameroon.
The promotion of its production requires an awareness of animal scientists, development authorities, as well as on station research if improved raising conditions. Helminths of the guinea pig, Cavia porcellus Linnaeus, in Brazil. Full Text Available Worm burdens were evaluated and compared in two groups of the guinea pig, Cavia poreellus Linnaeus, animals of the first group were conventionally maintained in an institutional animal house and those of the second group were openly kept in pet shops in Brazil.
Social preferences of developing guinea pigs Cavia porcellus from the preweaning to the periadolescent periods. Preference tests in a novel environment Experiment 1 and unobtrusive observations in a specialized living environment Experiment 2 examined the attractiveness of various classes of conspecifics for maturing guinea pigs Cavia porcellus. It was found that a.
These results provide no evidence that guinea pigs approaching sexual maturity begin to associate preferentially with novel animals or potential breeding partners. Choices were largely predictable from earlier findings of the ability of various classes of conspecifics to reduce hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal activity of the young. Treatment and control of Trixacarus caviae infestation in a conventional guinea pig Cavia porcellus breeding colony.
A case of sarcoptic mange caused by Trixacarus caviae in a conventional guinea pig breeding colony is reported. The infestation was reported in a large colony of guinea pigs during the month of July, affecting 30 breeder guinea pigs. Three doses of ivermectin were sufficient to eliminate the parasite which tested negative afte Full Text Available To investigate the origin and diversity of domestic guinea-pigs Cavia porcellus Linnaeus, ; Rodentia, Caviidae, we sequenced the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene of 12 domestic and 10 wild specimens from six species, including the two presumed as ancestral to the domestic one: Cavia tschudii and Cavia aperea.
All maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses grouped C. When the C. All C. Some South American C. Probably, a particular clade from southern Peru and Chile may represent a pre-Columbian lineage. Mean K2P distance between C. These results indicate that C. Strict hygienic measures were followed. New hair growth in the severely affected animals was evidenced on 30th day of treatment.
Experimental infection in Cavia porcellus by infected Amblyomma ovale nymphs with Rickettsia sp. Atlantic rainforest strain. This study describes experimental infection of guinea pigs Cavia porcellus infested with naturally infected Amblyomma ovale nymphs with Rickettsia sp. Atlantic rainforest strain , and the capacity of A. Twenty-six guinea pigs were divided into the following groups: G1, 10 animals infested with uninfected A.
Atlantic rainforest strain ; and G3, 6 animals without tick infestation. For histopathological analysis and rickettsial DNA detection, fragments of the spleen, lung, brain, and liver were harvested after euthanasia. The average feeding period for nymphs was 6. The only clinical change was skin scarring at the tick attachment site.
Hematological parameters indicated leukopenia and total plasma protein TPP increased with decreased platelets in G1. In G2, leukocytosis, neutrophilia, monocytosis, an increase in platelets, and reduced TPP were observed.
Histopathology tests indicated mild, diffuse hemosiderosis and mild, multifocal, follicular hyperplasia in the spleen. Molecular analysis did not detect Rickettsia sp. DNA in C. We demonstrated the capacity of A. Atlantic rainforest strain to guinea pigs.
