Since 2010, the Hunting Retriever Club Foundation (HRCF) has awarded $1,500 annually to the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine (LSU SVM) to support many aspects of veterinary medical research. On July 11, Glenn Stelly, Chuck Dowling and Mark Evans presented a check for $1,500 to Cassaundra Coulter, DVM, diagnostic imaging resident, in support of her research project entitled, “Sonographic Pancreatic Variation and Histopathological Correlation in Normal Dogs.”
The LSU-Tulane Center for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)―Center for Experimental Infectious Disease Research (CEIDR) was established in 2004 and has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) with approximately $22 million from 2004-2015.

Now that summer is here, it’s good to remember that pets require special care to avoid heatstroke. Dogs cannot tell us when they feel hot, and it is our responsibility to ensure that our pets have sufficient shelter from the sun, an adequate supply of water to drink, and a way to cool off as the heat rises.
