Clinical Trials: Know the Facts!

Tufts veterinary specialists not only treat some of the region’s most challenging medical issues, but also work hard to push the boundaries of medical discovery pursuing new medicines, innovative surgical techniques and treatment methods to ensure future advancements in veterinary medicine and ultimately a better quality of life for the animals and human beings.

Engaging in clinical studies is a pivotal part of advancing veterinary care and influencing discoveries that may positively influence human health. Access to clinical trials is equally as important to the animals who seek our care. Clients who choose to voluntarily participate in a clinical study may greatly benefit from a cutting-edge treatment or therapy for a disease that has few other options or a diagnostic tool that does less harm to your animal than what is currently available. Often times, clinical studies are fully or partially-funded by grants.  If you are interested in learning more about ongoing clinical study opportunities at the Foster Hospital for Small Animals, please opt-in to our Clinical Studies Bulletin, a regular communication announcing new clinical trial opportunities.
