Participate in a clinical trial

Find out if your pet is eligible to enroll in a clinical study.

By participating in a clinical trial, your pet gains access to treatment that may improve their quality of life and musculoskeletal health. What we learn from your animal’s participation also translates to human medicine, helping advance treatment options for people with arthritis.

Through prevention, diagnostics, and non-surgical treatment options, we aim to improve quality of life for companion animals of all ages by restoring mobility, alleviating pain, and improving fitness. Our board-certified specialists see companion animals with all types of joint, muscle, and tendon injuries and diseases, including arthritis and canine cruciate ligament injury.

If your pet does require surgical intervention, we partner with the hospital’s orthopedic surgery service to develop the best treatment plan.
