  • Lipid receptor fosters infection of the uterus in bitches
    In the female dog, cells of the uterus can accumulate lipid droplets to form so-called foamy epithelial cells during late metoestrus. These cells produce a hormone that is involved in the implantation of the embryo in the uterus. A team of researchers has now shown for the first time that the factor assisting the cells in lipid accumulation also facilitates the binding of bacteria to the epithelial cells, resulting in serious infections of the uterus in female dogs.
  • Children are unaware of the risks of approaching frightened dogs
    Children understand the risks of approaching an angry dog but they are unaware that they should show the same caution around frightened dogs, new research suggests.
  • No evidence of long-term welfare problems with electronic containment of cats
    A study by animal welfare specialists in the United Kingdom has provided new evidence that using electronic containment systems to restrict where pet cats venture does not result in long-term well-being problems.
  • Pet therapy can combat homesickness
    The expression "dog is man's best friend" might have more weight in the case of first-year university students suffering from homesickness, according to a new study. The study shows that animal-assisted therapy can help students combat homesickness and could be a useful tool in lowering post-secondary drop-out rates.
  • Historical coexistence with dingoes may explain bandicoot avoidance of domestic dogs
