Tick-borne diseases are a concern, now more than ever, for dogs and their owners alike. To combat these diseases, the Canine Health Foundation has announced the first round of research grants through their Tick-Borne Disease Initiative.
Each of the three new grants will study a different tick-borne disease with the hope of learning more about how to prevent, diagnose, and treat these afflictions.
“We are excited about the impact this Initiative will have on canine health and owner awareness of the growing concern over important tick-borne pathogens.” said Dr. Diane Brown, CHF's chief executive officer.
