This week’s One Health roundup includes several stories on the health benefits of pets, as well as some of the potential risks (and how to avoid them). We’ve also included stories on the latest research that could offer clues on and provide treatments for asthma, heart attacks, vision loss and obesity.
Thanks for reading, and have a happy and healthy weekend!
