CAAB Chat: Behavior, Stress and Respiratory Disease in Shelter Dogs

In this recent CAAB Chat, Dr. Alexandra Protopopova, Dr. Nathan Hall (Texas Tech) and Dr. Jessica Hekman (University of Illinois) discuss their current project correlating behavior, physiologic measurements of stress, and respiratory disease in shelter dogs.

They also leave time for questions about current trends in dog research.
