With help from pet participants, clinical trials help doctors in the medical and veterinary fields discover disease prevention methods and find new ways to improve detection, diagnosis, and treatment of animal illnesses, all while enhancing the quality of care each patient receives.
Select a clinical trial to learn more about specific research goals and to understand what is in store for you and your pet if you choose to participate. All animal participants receive compassionate care throughout their treatment period.
