Current Veterinary Oncology Trials


While not for everyone, participating in a clinical trial can provide access to cutting-edge veterinary oncology treatments, and may alleviate some of the financial burden of treating your dog with cancer.  If you are interested in participating in a clinial trial, you should note that they usually take place at Veterinary Teaching Hospitals and the criteria for taking part in the trial is very specific.  Participating in a clinical trial is a big commitment because dogs must be carefully monitored throughout the treatment and strict guidelines must be followed during the trial period, and even after your dog passes away.  But, these trials are essential to the development of new and better canine, and human, cancer treatments, and may be the key to your dog’s successful battle against cancer.

Below is a list of links to some current veterinary oncology clinical trials taking place across the US.
