MFHA Continues Partnership to Research Canine Health

The MFHA Foundation continues to partner with public health researchers to investigate and innovate in the area of canine health. Extending our cooperation with Dr. Christine Petersen, we are supporting specialized research into the impact of various tick-borne diseases on susceptibility to other illnesses. As Dr. Petersen reported to the Board in May, not only will these studies potentially improve hound management, they may provide insight into disease processes in humans, as well.
