SARDS Grant Update

An update from Dr. Freya Mowat, recipient of the VAF’s large grant award for SARDS research:
Our first paper was submitted last week to Veterinary Ophthalmology and is in peer review. Our resident will present this work at the ACVO meeting in October.  We are also working on the comparisons with normal dogs, SARDS and Cushing’s dogs, with a presentation by one of our residents at the ACVO meeting. We are finished with recruitment with that part of the study (last case was seen this month) so will start some of the bench top work very soon. examining hormones between SARDS and other groups.
We are excited to continue to work on this subject and are motivated, particularly to find ways to identify SARDS cases earlier.
