  • Canine cancer cell lines for research and drug development
    Analagous to the NCI-60, a new panel of authenticated canine cancer cell lines lets veterinary researchers experiment with known cells.
  • Myth of tolerant dogs and aggressive wolves refuted
    The good relationship between humans and dogs was certainly influenced by domestication. For long, it was assumed that humans preferred particularly tolerant animals for breeding. Thus, cooperative and less aggressive dogs could develop. Recently, however, it was suggested that these qualities were not only specific for human-dog interactions, but characterize also dog-dog interactions.
  • Down to three wolves on Isle Royale
    Only three wolves seem to remain in Isle Royale National Park. Researchers observed the wolves during their annual Winter Study, and the lone group, at an unprecedented low, is a sharp decline from nine wolves observed last winter.
  • Ways to avoid catching diseases from pets
    Pets can pass diseases to humans, especially when a pet owner's immune system is compromised. Here, veterinarians outline ways for families to avoid disease transmission by choosing the right type of pet--or making small changes in the ways they enjoy the pets they already have.
  • Gene signatures predict doxorubicin response in canine osteosarcoma
    A gene expression model that predicts canine osteosarcoma response to doxorubicin has been identified by researchers, potentially allowing veterinary oncologists to better choose which drug to use with their patients.
