U of M researchers have developed a novel virus-like particle vaccine against COVID-19. Having been successfully tested in animals, the novel vaccine offers a new approach in the global battle against COVID-19 and its emerging variants.
New research from the U of M's College of Biological Sciences shows that predators’ hunting techniques and the relative degree of danger they pose are key factors dictating anti-predator response in other species.
U of M researchers have developed a candidate drug that was effective in both preventing and quelling SARS-CoV-2 infection in animals, signaling potential in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic if it can be validated in human trials.
A study by the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine found that household cats were more susceptible than dogs to natural infection of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, early on during the pandemic in Minnesota.
Land managers are increasingly turning to livestock such as cattle, sheep, goats and horses to manage unwanted weeds in the Midwestern U.S. and across the country. Researchers at University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) synthesized the results of 70 individual studies to discover if this strategy is effective.
Anxiety at being left home alone can be real for many pets, particularly dogs. Kristi Flynn, DVM, an assistant professor at the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and Dana Emerson, VT, a certified training partner at the Veterinary Medical Center, offer advice on how owners can help decrease their pet’s anxiety during the transition back to the office.
