Dogs, Physical Activity, and Walking (Dogs PAW)

07/10/2014

In this podcast we hear from Dr. Libby Richards, a Certified Health Education Specialist and assistant professor at Purdue University School of Nursing. She received her PhD in Health Promotion from Purdue University and her Masters in Nursing from Indiana University. Dr. Richards’ research is focused on population-based physical activity promotion. In this podcast we will be discussing her CHF funded research into the reciprocal impact of a healthy and active lifestyle on the physical and mental well-being of dogs and their owners.

Noise Phobia in Dogs

06/19/2014

In this two-part podcast, Dr. Karen Overall discusses an issue of major importance to many dog owners: separation anxiety and noise phobia in dogs. Dr. Overall received her VMD from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine and PhD in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She completed a residency in Behavioral Medicine at Penn and is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behavior (ACVB) and is certified by the Animal Behavior Society (ABS) as an Applied Animal Behaviorist. Dr. Overall’s clinical work is focused on the humane treatment of troubled pets and their distressed people. Her research has two main foci, first to understanding the neurobiology and genetics of canine behavior and canine cognition, and second, the development of natural genetic and behavioral canine models for human psychiatric illness, particularly those involving anxiety, panic, and aggression.

We hope you enjoy part two of Dr. Overall’s interview, “Noise Phobia in Dogs.”

A transcript of this podcast interview is also available.

Listen to part one: "Separation Anxiety in Dogs."

The Cytogenomic Landscape of Canine Cancer

05/29/2014

In this podcast Dr. Matthew Breen discusses his investigation into the cytogenomic changes evident in a variety of the leading cancers in dogs, including: lymphoma; leukemia; osteosarcoma; histiocytic neoplasia; urogenital carcinoma; intracranial malignancies; hemangiosarcoma; and melanoma. Cytogenomics is a branch of genetics that is concerned with the study of the structure and function of the cell, especially chromosomes. Dr. Breen also discusses possible collaborations with leading human academic medical centers to explore the translation of his findings in dogs to comparable cancers in humans.

Dr. Breen completed his PhD in cytogenetics in 1990 and then spent two years as a Post Doc in Molecular Genetics at the UK Medical Research Council’s Human Genetics Unit in Edinburgh, where he developed new techniques as part of the human genome project. Dr. Breen then spent four years working for the research arm of the Australian Thoroughbred industry, returning to the UK in 1996 where his laboratory developed molecular cytogenetics reagents, resources and techniques for application to canine genome mapping, comparative cytogenetics and cancer studies. In 2002 Dr. Breen relocated his laboratory to NCSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine as part of its Genomics initiative. Since then his research interests have continued to focus on the genomics, genome mapping and the comparative aspects of canine cancer.

Veterinary medicine has provided a wealth of information about the clinical and pathological presentation of numerous cancers in animals, and while both dogs and cats are now the subject of intense molecular cytogenetic attention, it is the dog that has provided much of the insight to date.

Canine Hemangiosarcoma: How Much Do We Really Know and When Will We Find a Cure?

05/15/2014

The Modiano Lab at the University of Minnesota is implementing a comprehensive approach to beat canine hemangiosarcoma. This includes development of new therapies to help dogs that develop the disease today, as well as new methods for prevention and control that will reduce the number of dogs that will develop hemangiosarcoma in the future. A better understanding of the disease has allowed us to make significant gains on both fronts of the battle against this aggressive tumor. Their progress has not gone unnoticed, allowing us to establish new collaborations that will similarly help human patients with angiosarcoma.
