The Centre for Companion Animal Health (CCAH) is a world-class research centre, leading the development of scientific and social advances in companion animal health and welfare. Under the leadership of Professor Jacquie Rand, a team of postgraduate students conducts studies to:
- Improve the health of companion animals through a better understanding of the cause of disease. Best possible treatments and preventions are developed and disseminated world-wide for the benefit of all pets.
- Enrich the lives of aged, disadvantaged and disabled people by understanding and promoting the many benefits within a human-animal bond.
- Prevent unwanted and problem pets through improved socialisation, re-training, re-homing, neutering and broad community education.
Founded in 2002, our Centre operates as a non-profit organisation. Like all universities around the world, we look to industry, individuals and our Alumni for investment by way of tax-deductible donations, bequests and sponsorship to help our team of veterinarians, nutritionists, behavourists and psychologists find answers to ensure a happy and healthy life for our pets and society in general.
