Ultrasound is used to evaluate the reproductive stage of a mare at a newly repurposed facility in Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine near campus in Pullman.

WSU recruiting dogs to participate in drug metabolism study

WSU researchers are recruiting for a study they hope will lead to the development of a test to determine if a dog is at risk of significant adverse reactions to commonly used veterinary drugs. The Drugs Optimized by Genomics (D.O.G.) study is focused on a group of liver enzymes, the cytochrome P450, responsible for metabolizing drugs, chemicals and even contaminants from the environment.
