The Companion Animals Research Fund is a fundraising foundation at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) under the patronage of HRH Crown Princess Victoria. The fund gives individuals, businesses and organizations the opportunity to make contributions to research on diseases that affect dogs and cats.

The Fund has since 2008 annually awarded funds for research, for example on diabetes and fescue disease on cats, and metritis and sudden cardiac death of dogs.

Today's veterinary medicine offers veterinary care that is both qualified and effective. Treatment and aftercare can save many sick animals back to a good life.

To further develop animal health and improve the prevention and diagnosis of diseases at an early stage, as well as to cure more dogs and cats in Sweden, more research is needed. Through The Companion Animal Research Fund, everyone who wants and has the opportunity can support the research – your contribution can mean a lot to our pets!
