Companion Animal Health Care and Management

Companion animal health research is a growing interest area that involves a dynamic group of veterinary researchers from a wide variety of specialized disciplines. Research activities cover subjects such as the refinement of minimally-invasive surgery techniques and investigations of infectious and vector-borne diseases.

Scientists are involved in studies of genetic conditions in the disciplines of internal medicine and ophthalmology, while other projects focus on improved diagnostic testing for cancer, signs of endotoxemia and acute abdominal pain. Projects are also being developed in specialized areas of veterinary oncology, dentistry, anesthesia, and emergency and critical care.
