Companion animal research group

We are a group of researchers with a common interest in performing research to improve the health and welfare of companion animals including dogs, cats and small mammals such as rabbits.

Our group comprises of a number of veterinary clinician researchers based in the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences and across other University of Liverpool departments who collaborate on companion animal research projects.

Our research expertise is broad encompassing obesity and endocrine disease, musculoskeletal biology, oncology, cardiology, epidemiology, bacteriology and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), drug safety and social science-based research.
