Agria is donating SEK 4.2 million to a doctoral student at SLU. The project aims, among other things, to find ways to better diagnose and treat knee diseases in dogs.

The project will try to answer the following questions:
◾How common are knee diseases?
◾Are there certain factors that increase the risk of these problems?
◾How well are the problems diagnosed?
◾How efficient are potential treatments?
