Hepatic Disease Grants
The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic science discovery and clinical research into the treatment of liver disease through the Hepatic Disease Research Program Area. This program supports research into the pathophysiology of hepatic diseases, as well as the molecular and genetic basis and identification of potential therapeutic drugs that reduce the pathology associated with such diseases.

The AKC Canine Health Foundation funds research in 23 different Research Program Areas for the health of all dogs. These program areas enable the Foundation to create depth in our research portfolio and help us to be responsive to the health concerns of our constituents.
Help Future Generations of Dogs
Participate in canine health research by providing samples or by enrolling in a clinical trial. Samples are needed from healthy dogs and dogs affected by specific diseases.
