Participate in clinical trials, often at no cost to you.

Veterinary Clinical Trials

Falls Village Veterinary Hospital has proudly participated in more than 30 FDA, EPA, and USDA clinical trials since 2014.

The joint effort of clients, patients, and our clinical trial team has helped get numerous medications and vaccinations approved. Many are items we use daily!

Most trials offer free exams, bloodwork, and medications. In exchange, owners who participate are expected to bring their pet in for re-checks at specified times and complete all necessary at-home monitoring.

It is very rewarding to know you were involved in the process of drug approval, which can help improve the quality of life for all animals.

Our Clinical Trial Team is currently seeking patients to participate in the following clinical trials:
