About this Document
This document is an adjunct resource to the previously published Information Resources on the Care and Welfare of Dogs, March 2008 publication. It is intended for basic researchers, biomedical researchers, veterinarians, and technicians, that wish to explore the scientific published literature on canines used as models of human disease, testing of new medical technologies, drug screening, and basic science discovery. It is not meant to be all inclusive but to touch on a variety of research areas that the canine has played as an important large animal model.
