Clinical trials are where patient care and innovation intersect. They allow us to offer our hospital clients unique treatment options for their pets while simultaneously making groundbreaking advancements in veterinary medicine. They are often conducted as part of the development of new medications, procedures, or therapies, and all animals participating in trials receive excellent clinical care.
Clinical trials are conducted with approval from the Clinical Research Committee, the Hospital Board, and the University of Georgia Research Foundation. This is often the end-stage testing to determine the safety and degree of effectiveness for new drugs or treatments before FDA approval.
