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.

Citations have been subcategorized into groupings related to major body systems and specific areas of research for easier browsing. Citations included in these chapters were published between 1990 and February 2009 and they were selected from multiple sources. In each chapter, the citations are arranged alphabetically according to the last name of the primary author.

Each citation in the bibliography contains descriptor terms, an abstract when available, and the NAL call number if the particular source is available at the National Agricultural Library (NAL). Information on how to request materials that are included in the collection of the National Agricultural Library (NAL) may be found on the Request Library Materials page. Please read carefully as there are certain restrictions on media and document types. All patrons are encouraged to explore local library resources first before contacting the National Agricultural Library.
