Does anxiety in dogs affect heart function?

This animal science project will aim to establish if there are links between anxiety in dogs and heart function.

In recent research we have shown the heart rate in anxious dogs can be very high for extended periods of time. This is likely to impact on heart function in these dogs. 

If you are interested in undertaking honours research in this area, please contact us to discuss potential projects.
