  1. In a proof-of-concept study, dogs identified positive samples with 96 percent accuracy.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/MCjMJ878aJQ View the full article
  2. An outbreak of vomiting among dogs has been traced back to a type of animal coronavirus by researchers. Vets across the country began reporting cases of acute onset prolific vomiting in 2019/20.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/fhQKbIaTokc View the full article
  3. Gray wolves are among the largest predators to have survived the extinction at the end of the last ice age. A new study analysing teeth and bones shows that the wolves may have survived by adapting their diet over thousands of years --- from a primary reliance on horses during the Pleistocene, to caribou and moose today.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/UOckykQqSqU View the full article
  4. A team of archaeologists in north-west the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has uncovered the earliest evidence of dog domestication by the region's ancient inhabitants.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/-TWlWaMbWYI View the full article
  5. Dogs are one of humanity's most-beloved animal companions. They share our homes and seem to reciprocate our affections. But could this emotional bond extend into feelings of jealousy? To help answer that question, a team of researchers gauged the reactions of a group of dogs when their owners appeared to shower attention on a perceived rival.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/J4s4NVt8ttE View the full article
  6. A new dingo study collates the results from over 5000 DNA samples of wild canines across Australia. It found that 99 per cent of animals tested were pure dingoes or dingo-dominant hybrids - and that there were almost no feral dogs in the country.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/hm-dGMFwX48 View the full article
  7. Domestication has a consistent effect on the gut microbiota of animals and is similar to the effects of industrialisation in human populations, with ecological differences such as diet having a strong influence.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/5VFetxoTAvM View the full article
  8. Dogs infected with the Leishmania parasite smell more attractive to female sand flies than males, say researchers. Leishmania parasites are transmitted from infected dogs to people by sand flies when they bite. As only female sand flies transmit the parasite, researchers wanted to understand if infection made dogs more attractive to the insect. Globally over 350 million people are at risk of leishmaniasis, with up to 300,000 new cases annually.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/k4_HsRjMNmA View the full article
  9. Mexican wolves in the American Southwest disappeared more quickly during periods of relaxed legal protections, almost certainly succumbing to poaching, according to new research.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/ZswopcszfhQ View the full article
  10. New research has now confirmed that larger breeds, such as Rottweiler, Great Dane and Rhodesian Ridgeback, have a greater risk of osteosarcoma than smaller breeds, as well as showing that breeds with shorter skulls and legs have lower osteosarcoma risk. The findings could inform future breed health reforms as well as studies into the way tumours develop from normal bone.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/0wcyqC-vnFQ View the full article
  11. If you haven't been the parent or caregiver of an infant in recent years, you'd be forgiven for missing the human milk oligosaccharide trend in infant formulas. These complex carbohydrate supplements mimic human breast milk and act like prebiotics, boosting beneficial microbes in babies' guts. Milk oligosaccharides aren't just for humans; all mammals make them. New research suggests milk oligosaccharides may be beneficial for cats and dogs when added to pet diets.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/9WINjcVg-6Q View the full article
  12. According to a UN-agreement, assistance dogs like guide dogs, signal dogs and medical response dogs are welcome in hospitals and other public places. However, in practice, they are regularly refused entry. Hygiene reasons are often given as the main argument for this. Research now shows that the paws of assistance dogs are cleaner than the shoe soles of their users, and thus, paw hygiene is no reason to ban assistance dogs from hospitals.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/HbGEP1wrk4w View the full article
  13. A study has uncovered a mutation in the IFT122 gene in blind dogs. The gene defect now discovered results in the progressive destruction of photoreceptor cells and retinal dystrophy. IFT122 is a new candidate also for retinal dystrophy in humans. A gene test in support of breeding and diagnostics has been developed based on the finding.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/PH-C4_O-zhU View the full article
  14. By modeling wolves in Yellowstone National Park, researchers have discovered that how a population is organized into social groups affects the spread of infectious diseases within the population. The findings may be applicable to any social species and could be useful in the protection of endangered species that suffer from disease invasion.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/moCGUBjBqbs View the full article
  15. It is often difficult to find out exactly where the individual species can be found and how their populations are developing. According to a new overview, specially trained detection dogs can be indispensable in such cases. With the help of these dogs, the species sought can usually be found faster and more effectively than with other methods.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/mLxDKMChjr0 View the full article
  16. A new study uses different techniques to improve the investigation of fossilized dog feces.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/KSZzxlRG3qA View the full article
  17. Researchers analyzed the dog's mitochondrial genome, and concluded that the animal belonged to a lineage of dogs whose evolutionary history diverged from that of Siberian dogs as early as 16,700 years ago. The timing of that split coincides with a period when humans may have been migrating into North America along a coastal route that included Southeast Alaska.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/N2i3DTAOzsU View the full article
  18. A recent genetic study provides new information on the occurrence of a DVL2 gene defect associated with a screw tail and its relevance to canine constitution and health. The variant was found in several Bulldog and Pit Bull type breeds, and it was shown to result in caudal vertebral anomalies and shortening of the muzzle. The DLV2 variant may also affect the development of the heart.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/gFGqT4IFfvY View the full article
  19. A study investigated pituitary dwarfism in Karelian Bear Dogs and found a link to a variant of the POU1F1 gene. The results can also help understand the gene's significance to the human pituitary gland's development and function.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/FL1AERr-Sng View the full article
