The Hunting Retriever Club Foundation recently presented a check for $1,500 to Cassaundra Coulter, DVM, a diagnostic imaging resident at the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine (LSU SVM). The money will support Dr. Coulter’s research project, “Sonographic Pancreatic Variation and Histopathological Correlation in Normal Dogs.”

The study aims to document the appearance on ultrasound of different diseases of the pancreas, which will allow veterinarians to more efficiently diagnose pancreatic disease. In addition, this research represents the beginning of a larger project to create an encyclopedia of the ultrasound appearance of many normal and diseased organs in the dog.

The Hunting Retriever Club Foundation awards grants to “worthwhile animal health research projects” at various universities and colleges. This is the sixth grant that the LSU SVM has received for research from the foundation.
