Critères comportementaux d’évaluation de la douleur chez les ruminants d’élevage

Abstract : The animal may express pain by withdrawal reflexes, movements or postures to avoid or relieve the pain, vocalisations or a change in its social behaviour and level of activity. These signs are suggestive for the practitioner, but must, however, be differentiated from certain unspecific signs also expressed in non-nociceptive situations. It is therefore essential for the practitioner to have a good knowledge of the behaviour of ruminants in non-painful situations in order to be able to detect disorders associated with pain and make the diagnosis. The farmer can assist by observing unusual behaviour in certain animals in the herd or a change in their activity
