There have been a number of reports lately in and around Denver, Colorado, about coyote attacks. Most notable are some recent attacks on children in Broomfield, and several attacks over the past few years on dogs and people in Greenwood Village. All along the Front Range, there have been reports of close calls with coyotes in back yards and open space walking trails.

Not only that, but some of their own discoveries have resulted in advances in treating cancer in humans.
Now they are tackling canine obesity. Just as with humans, obesity in dogs can result in many undesirable health detriments, such as heart disease, lack of stamina, and diabetes. It can also exacerbate some genetic deficiencies, such as hip and knee dysplasia.
