We need your help!

Our oncology team, together with the research team at University of Sydney is working on a research project examining Border Collies’ longevity and current health status, with a particular focus on lymphoma.

We are looking for people who own/breed Border Collies in Australia, or have done so in the past to complete a survey. 

If you have or have had Border Collies affected with lymphoma and would like to further participate in the Mac and Jetty Lymphoma Research project please contact: via the project website: www.facebook.com/USydBorderCollie or fill in the survey at:www.surveymonkey.com/r/USydBorderCollie

All information provided in this survey is strictly confidential and should take about 5-10 minutes to complete.

Advances in Veterinary Science

Veterinary science has benefited significantly from technological advances over recent years, with many procedures being adapted from human medicine. The advances have contributed to faster and more accurate diagnoses, and better treatments. At the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Sydney, we continually look for ways to ensure we remain at the forefront of medical practice, and this includes working with researchers at the University’s Veterinary School and collaborating with with colleagues at other universities and research institutions.

We have a broad range of research interests and we keep up to date with the current advanced researches in a variety of veterinary disciplines.  We will post educational and informative articles here about research into the betterment of animal health and improvements to veterinary medicine. We hope that as we do, you will find them inspiring and informative.
