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.

Looking to improve their understanding of how to engage a dog’s immune system in detecting and destroying cancer cells, researchers at the University of Minnesota recently completed a lab based study exploring aspects of immune function at a cellular level.

Five of six horses under anesthesia had significantly greater blood-oxygen levels with a 15-degree table tilt compared to no tilt at all, a recent study from the University of Minnesota shows.

A group of College of Veterinary Medicine researchers aims to give scientists a more nuanced look at whether past infection by one genetic variant of PRRSV will provide immunity against another.

The College of Veterinary Medicine is looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2022 DVM, MS, and PhD students at a Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 14 at 10:00 a.m. More than 100 students are expected to participate. Details are available online.
