Why the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study Matters

Badger

A Badger-friendly Approach to Tuberculosis

Eurasian badgers are the primary wildlife host species for bovine TB in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

  • Infected fecal material is one of the principal routes of transmission.
  • Culling, mass vaccination and relocation strategies have been unsuccessful and can be harmful or cruel.
  • Probiotics show promise in controlling transmission of the disease and are safe for animals as well as environmentally friendly.

Tuberculosis: Ancient Disease, Present Threat to Wildlife

Galloping consumption, the White Plague, Pottís disease, phthisis and scrofula — the names we've given tuberculosis since ancient times speak to the nature of this deadly disease. First described in people more than 6,000 years ago, TB continues to cause chronic illness and is one of the top 10 causes of death in humans worldwide.

But tuberculosis isn't just a threat to human health; it's deadly in animals, too, impacting species as diverse as cattle, dogs, hyenas, possums, wild boars, badgers, white-tailed deer, elephants and numerous endangered animals. The toll it takes on animals is incalculable.

Mousie's Legacy: Hope in the Fight Against Hemangiosarcoma

Danielle Walraven happily describes her pack of Italian greyhounds as Velcro dogs – they love to be on her lap, on the couch, snuggling in bed, getting under her feet, and basically being as close to her as possible. Her love of these miniature versions of greyhounds, and the health problems they can face, is what brought her to Morris Animal Foundation.
