|Title:||Bioavailability and efficacy of orally administered flunixin, carprofen and ketoprofen in a pain model in sheep||Contributor(s):||Marini, Danila (author); Pippia, Joe (author); Colditz, Ian (author); Hinch, Geoffrey (author) ; Petherick, Carol (author); Lee, Caroline (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Open Access:||Yes||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/18901||Open Access Link:||http://www.wageningenacademic.com/doi/pdf/10.3920/978-90-8686-797-4||Abstract:||The pain from routine husbandry practices performed on sheep can last several days and sheep often don't receive therapeutic interventions to provide pain relief. Attractive candidates for long-acting pain relief are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If NSAIDs can be shown to alleviate pain and inflammation when administered orally in sheep, they could be incorporated in feed, providing producers with a practical method to provide long-term pain relief in sheep. The aim of this research was to test the bioavailability and efficacy of carprofen, ketoprofen and flunixin administered orally using a lameness model (turpentine (0.1 ml) injected into one forelimb) developed to enable objective quantitative assessment of the analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions of NSAIDs in sheep.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||ISAE 2014: 48th Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, 29th July - 2nd August, 2014||Conference Details:||ISAE 2014: 48th Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, 29th July - 2nd August, 2014||Source of Publication:||Moving on: Proceedings of the 48th Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE 2014), p. 220-220||Publisher:||Wageningen Academic Publishers||Place of Publication:||Wageningen, The Netherlands||Field of Research (FOR):||070202 Animal Growth and Development||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830310 Sheep - Meat
