The American Veterinary Medical Foundation will begin providing at least $25,000 to support research on management of pain due to osteoarthritis or other diseases common in older dogs. The grants are made possible through a bequest from the estate of Susan I. Maylahn and her dog, Igloo.
Any veterinary clinician or scientist with an interest in the prevention or treatment of pain due to osteoarthritis or other diseases in older dogs is eligible to serve as principal investigator. Collaboration with additional researchers who are members or student members of the AVMA is strongly encouraged.
One grant, with a maximum of $25,000, will be awarded in 2018, and at least one grant of $25,000 is anticipated to be awarded in 2019 as well.
The deadline for submissions is Nov. 15; a decision will be made by Jan. 15, 2018.
