Dear Pet Lovers:

Our goal at the Center for Companion Animal Health is to improve the health of pets and companion animals by encouraging studies into diseases that affect the health of dogs, cats and small exotic pets. In addition to general medicine and surgery, we focus on five areas:

  • Cancer
  • Infectious Disease
  • Genetics
  • Shelter Medicine
  • Nutrition

Successful programs at our school require a mixture of motivated faculty, well-equipped facilities and adequate funding for health studies. The CCAH funds faculty and resident researchers who are interested in advancing knowledge of veterinary medicine through a competitive grant application program. We also help disperse this cutting-edge knowledge through faculty exchanges, international seminars and workshops, faculty clinical and research publications, newsletters, consultations and other information outlets.

The CCAH is supported entirely by contributions from individuals, animal lovers, veterinary practitioners, breed clubs, pet-related industries and private foundations. Donations fund animal health studies, scientific equipment and facilities improvements, operational costs, educational seminars and other programs associated with our animal health mission. The CCAH is a reflection of our partnership with individuals and foundation members who seek to improve the lives of our animal companions.

If you would like to support CCAH and the animals we serve, please print and send in the contribution form, use the online donation form or contact the Office of Development for more information.

Thank you.

Dr. Michael S. Kent, CCAH Director
