Research Interests

Dr. Mowat's research focuses on aspects of dog aging relating to sensory and cognitive decline. She is particularly interested in how companion (pet) dog aging mirrors that of the humans that cohabit with them, and how the environment modifies the aging process in the home environment that would impact aging of these cohabiting species.
