UF Researchers Develop First-Ever Protocol for Treating Rare Infection in Dogs

While participating in a summer research project in Thailand in 2018, a University of Florida graduate student and his mentor discovered a rarely diagnosed and often fatal infection, known as melioidosis, in a dog, and helped veterinarians develop a protocol to successfully treat the animal.

One year later, the 11-year-old Pomeranian mixed-breed dog continues to be doing well, said Pacharapong Khrongsee, D.V.M., a master’s student who studies melioidosis with his mentor, tropical disease expert Dr. Apichai Tuanyok, an assistant professor in the UF College of Veterinary Medicine’s department of infectious diseases and immunology.
