    Epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) Diagnosed in Eastern WA Cows
    The Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (WADDL) at Washington State University has detected epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV) in cattle located in Eastern WA.  Epizootic hemorrhagic disease typically affects wild deer populations but occasionally crosses over to cattle where most infections are subclinical.  Sporadic disease as seen in these cases in cattle presents as animals off feed with oral erosions and ulcerations, excessive salivation and nasal discharge.

    Personalized Medicine for Dogs
    Would your dog benefit from targeted health treatment and prevention plans tailored to their own unique physiology? Would you like to work with your dog’s veterinary team to determine the most effective medical treatments with the highest safety margins? Personalized medicine, also known as precision medicine, is poised to do just that.

    Fascinating ways animals prepare for fall
    It’s officially fall, which for humans often means snuggling up inside and anticipating the holidays ahead. Conversely, for many animals, it’s a season of intense preparation for the looming winter. From deer to birds to bears, many species are triggered by the shortening days to switch into a frenetic mode of gathering food, finding mates, and more. (See gorgeous pictures that celebrate the arrival of fall.)

    A 10% increase in dog vaccination reduces human deaths by 12.4%
    Rabies is a virus that is usually spread by a bite or scratch from an infected animal. The virus attacks the central nervous system and can cause inflammation in the brain, eventually leading to death. In principle, no human today should die from rabies, and yet rabies is responsible for an estimated 59,000 human deaths and over 3.7 million disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) lost every year.

    Genetic Preparation for Hibernation Is Key for Grizzly Bears
    Being a human couch potato can greatly increase fat accumulation, hasten the onset of Type II diabetes symptoms, result in detrimental blood chemistry and cardiovascular changes, and eventually, bring about one's death. Large hibernators such as bears however have evolved to adapt to and reverse similar metabolic stressors they face each year before and during hibernation to essentially become immune to these ill effects. New RNA sequencing-based genetic research conducted at Washington State University's Bear Research, Education, and Conservation Center shows grizzlies express a larger number of genes in preparation for, and during hibernation to cope with such stressors, than do any other species studied.

    Why "World Rabies Day" is important
    The queue in the center of Shirati Sota village in northern Tanzania begins to form at around 8 a.m. and continues to grow throughout the day. Children, mostly boys, bring the dogs. Women tend to bring cats, usually inside sacks. As they arrive all at once, a newly appointed rabies coordinator struggles to keep the group in an orderly fashion, with dogs, unaccustomed to their twine leashes or metal chain, picking fights with one another. Despite a tedious wait in the tropical heat, no one leaves. By the end of the day more than 350 dogs and cats will be vaccinated – job done.

    Art in the Library exhibit features work of veterinary student Charlie Kittridge
    Peregrine falcons, the fastest birds in the world, can reach speeds of up to 240 miles per hour while diving. Third‑year Washington State University veterinary student and wildlife artist Charlie Kittridge drew the bird of prey in October 2017 as a tribute to its impressive qualities. “I admire their speed, precision and power,” he said. “Animals are my favorite subjects. I get to know them in a deeper way through art.”

    WSU researchers grow citrus disease bacteria in the lab
    Washington State University researchers have for the first time grown the bacteria in a laboratory that causes Citrus Greening Disease, considered the world’s most harmful citrus disease. Being able to grow the elusive and poorly understood bacterium, Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas), will make it easier for researchers to find treatments for the disease that has destroyed millions of acres of orange, grapefruit and lemon groves around the world and has devastated the citrus industry in Florida. The researchers, including Phuc Ha, postdoctoral research associate, Haluk Beyenal, Paul Hohenschuh Professor in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, David Gang and Ruifeng He, from WSU’s Institute of Biological Chemistry, Anders Omsland, from the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, and researchers from the University of Florida and University of Arizona, report on their work in the journal, Biofilm.
