Current news

In an effort to identify high-risk areas for dog-mediated rabies, researchers at the University of Minnesota recently took a One Health approach using Thailand as the example site to quantify the location-based risk of contracting the disease for both human and animal populations. Despite ongoing control efforts, rabies remains an endemic zoonotic disease in many countries. A better understanding of its spread is crucial for the development of effective surveillance and control programs.

To better understand prescribing practices, a University of Minnesota team led by Jennifer L. Granick, DVM, MS, PhD, reviewed antibiotic use data obtained from medical records of cats, dogs and horses from approximately 1,900 veterinary visits. The researchers collected single day antibiotic prescribing data from small animal and horse veterinarians each quarter for 1 year. The review of records from the visits showed that approximately 1 in 4 visits involved antibiotic prescription.
