The field of companion animal nutrition is relatively small, but is hugely important to further our understanding of the relationship between nutrition and health. Studies in this allow us to continually improve the diets of our pets.
This is why WALTHAM supports scientists embarking in pet nutrition research, to ensure future growth in the field and promote the highest possible research standards. Previous award winners have gone on to be influential researchers and educators in the field of pet nutrition. A decade ago Andrea Fascetti
received an AAVN and WALTHAM Research Grant for her project “Are domestic cats capable of converting carotene to Vitamin A?”. She is now a Professor at UC Davis, California
In 2017, WALTHAM, in partnership with the American Academy of Veterinary Nutrition (AAVN)
and the European Society of Veterinary Comparative Nutrition (ESVCN)
, again has two research grants available.
Applications are now invited for the WALTHAM and ESVCN Research Grant. The deadline for submissions is 15 July 2017.
The WALTHAM and AAVN Research Grant for 2017 has now been closed to applications.
