Vet Compass Project Type: Dog
This project aims to document the prevalence of degenerative mitral valve disease in dogs, evaluate the survival characteristics of affected animals and determine the prognostic value of clinical measurements and biomarker blood tests.
Evidence based veterinary medicine (EBVM) has the potential to make a significant contribution to improvements in veterinary and human health. However, unless they are addressed, hitherto under-explored ethical and societal dimensions to EBVM will limit this contribution. Madeleine Campbell and David Mills are working to elucidate such ethical and societal issues, and propose possible solutions to them.
