CAHF funnels nearly $80,000 into pet health

The Companion Animal Health Fund (CAHF) has funneled nearly $80,000 into eight pet health-related research projects that will be conducted by a pool of researchers at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine over the next two years.

In this latest tide of studies, scientists are investigating a wide range of issues that have the potential to bring a fresh wave of benefits to Western Canada’s companion animals: new diagnostic and therapy tools for oncology patients, a new treatment for a bacterial infection in cats, new insights into the genetics of a retinal disease, a better understanding of a marker for acute inflammation, and more in-depth knowledge of two common orthopedic problems in dogs.
