Italian term or phrase: zooantropologico.
Here is the context...Anche per quanto riguarda gli animali d’allevamento, numerose sono le condizioni che oggi una significativa parte della popolazione valuta in base a parametri emotivi e non obbiettivi, stabiliti tramite indicatori certi e ripetibili, che invece sarebbero necessari per una valutazione scientifica del complesso rapporto zooantropologico.

I just wanted to check on zooanthropology, is this the correct term.

animal-human relationship

"When challenged on this issue most anthropologists argue that for questions about animals per se one had better turn to sciences such as biology or ethology. To point out to them that in addition to a human-animal relationship there also exists something like an animal-human relationship, and that totally ignoring the latter will lead to a one-sided subject-object approach is a waste of time. As present the anthropocentrism in anthropology goes virtually unchallenged."
In your context you may also say "human-animal"

I think "interaction" could be a good option for "relationship"
"La Zooantropologia ha come obbiettivo lo studio del rapporto uomo-animale negli eventi di interazione e relazionali e la valutazione per la prima volta dei contributi apportati all’uomo in questa relazione."

Some occurrences in Native English for zoo-anthropology or anthropo-zoology (but they seem used like neologisms or linguistic inventions:
"A new science one might call anthropo-zoology or zoo-anthropology. This science is a deep study of human beings, of animals, of their mutual relations, present and potential. In this discipline, researchers encourage close relations with the animal, and study the developing relation between human and so-called "beast"."
