Clinical Trials are important for discovering new treatments for illness and conditions that many animals stand to benefit from.​

​The majority of our work results in immediate benefit to companion animals. As many of our projects are associated with new diagnostic tests, new treatments, and new vaccines for common diseases seen in veterinary clinics, the use of research animals is minimized. If research dogs or cats are needed, the animals are adopted to private homes at the end of the studies.​
