Pup of the month

Could your dog be our next ‘Pup of the Month’?

We are now recruiting puppies from anywhere in the UK/ROI, of any breed or cross-breed. If your puppy is 16 weeks of age or under please consider signing up, and joining the Generation Pup community. You could help us to make Generation Pup a once in a lifetime study with benefits for all of dogdom! Plus your puppy could be chosen as ‘Pup of the Month’.

Project news

Exciting research news!!!

Four members of the Generation Pup team have had clinical research abstracts accepted for oral presentations at BSAVA Congress in April 2019!  The abstracts are short summaries of recent research findings from Generation Pup. Well done to Rosa Da Costa, Rachel Kinsman, Dr Michelle Lord and Josh Woodward, and all others who have been involved – Dr Emma Buckland, Dr Rachel Casey, Prof Toby Knowles, Dr Jane Murray and Prof Séverine Tasker.

The congress will be held in Birmingham. It will likely be attended by over 6,000 delegates. These presentations give the team a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of this ground-breaking research project.

All four team members plan to submit papers for publication this year, so stay tuned as we will share these findings with you when we can!
