Dogs Needed For Clinical Trials

March 2nd, 2017

The OSU Veterinary Hospital has several clinical trials that are currently enrolling dogs. One example:

Canine Fasting and Chemotherapy Study

Canine cancer patients treated with chemotherapy may have gastrointestinal side effects such as poor appetite and vomiting.  Short-term fasting may decrease the risk of such side effects.  We are recruiting dogs that will be administered chemotherapy (vincristine or carboplatin) as part of their cancer treatment.  Research funding supports much of the expense of two chemotherapy treatments including exam fees, complete blood counts and chemotherapy administration fees

Veterinarians with patients who qualify, may call Dr. Katie Curran or Dr. Shay Bracha at 541-737-4812. Other clinical trials may be found online.
