Looking for a few more willing volunteers with medium sized dogs (15-25kg) for a short food project at the QVSH. Do you live close to Cambridge and own a medium sized dog (any breed or cross weighing 15-25 kg)? If so we would like to invite you and your 4-legged friend to participate in one of our current experiments investigating food preferences in dogs. The test will take place at the Queen’s Veterinary Hospital in Cambridge (some days in Feb & Mar) and will take about 30 min per dog.
