  • sue larue, flint animal cancer center, research, oncology, radiation
    Our Flint Animal Cancer Center connected human and animal oncology research in a groundbreaking forum sponsored by the Institute of Medicine in Washington D.C. A shared research agenda is expected to spur new cancer therapies for pets and people.
  • euthanasia decision making
    ​As you contemplate the potential timing of euthanasia, your pet’s quality of life will be a key consideration. The time for euthanasia usually arrives when a pet’s quality of life greatly diminishes.​
  • avian influenza
    ​A highly pathogenic form of avian influenza is devastating poultry producers in the Midwest. Colorado has been spared, yet our resident expert cautions that commercial chicken and turkey growers – as well as people with backyard flocks – should take steps to prevent infection. 
  • Surgireal, sutures
    ​Business is booming for SurgiReal, a startup built by two CSU veterinarians to provide lifelike training models for students learning suturing and other basic surgical skills. The models, poised to become a training standard, are distinctive for realistic tissues and the ability to "bleed."​​
  • skunk, rabies, pet health
    Rabies is rising in Colorado, and skunks are contributing to the spike in confirmed cases of this fatal infectious disease. Our Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratories are testing for the disease, and our veterinarians provide advice for preventing rabies infection in dogs, cats, horses and livestock.​​
  • rabbit fever
    Tularemia, or rabbit fever, is an infectious disease harbored by rabbits and spread by biting insects; it can sicken both pets and people. Testing at our Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratories is helping to track cases in Colorado; learn more here about tularemia and steps to prevent disease.​​
