Plus, disoriented infected foragers may be more likely to spread the virus to neighboring colonies.
A team of researchers at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) have launched a study investigating the genetic and management factors influencing muscle disease in horses. The scientists are also looking to determine if diet or exercise impact muscle disease expression.
South Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota (U of M) announce the formation of a new collaborative Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine leading to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree (DVM).
