Evaluation of Gastroesophageal Reflux in Dogs with Laryngeal Paralysis Clinical Trial

Return to the Clinical Trials Homepage

 

Who qualifies:

Dogs diagnosed with laryngeal paralysis.

More information:

The incidence of gastroesophageal reflux is not known in dogs with laryngeal paralysis. It may contribute to the development of aspiration pneumonia with laryngeal paralysis. To document the frequency and the severity of gastroesophageal reflux, a nasoesophageal probe will be placed in dogs diagnosed with laryngeal paralysis to measure esophageal pH before and after surgery. Data will be collected continuously for 24 hours.

Financial incentives:

Patients involved in the study will receive $350 to cover surgery fees. All the other expenses related to the research will be covered. 

To enroll:
