This could eventually help our Cavaliers
A NEW scholarship has been created to develop methods with which to detect and measure chronic pain in dogs.
The investigations will focus on syringomyelia and osteoarthritis, although the assessment methods will be applied eventually to all conditions.
The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) has awarded the scholarship to Alastair Cockburn of the University of Bristol who will undertake the three-year programme of research at doctorate level. He will investigate methods of assessing pain, underlying emotional state and quality of life in dogs with chronic pain conditions.
