Current news

It is well understood that Echinococcus spp., a type of zoonotic parasitic tapeworm, spills over into humans through contaminated soil or water—and through their pets. But unlike humans, dogs are asymptomatic when infected with echinococcus, which makes it difficult to detect before a human is infected.

Although studies in Europe and Asia have explored the role of rodent pests in zoonotic disease outbreaks, comparatively little research has investigated the rodent-agricultural interface in the United States.


We are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of animals and people, and strengthening Minnesota's economy, by providing high-quality education, conducting leading-edge research, and delivering innovative veterinary services.
