Before joining a clinical trial, a patient must qualify for the study. Each study has its own set of criteria. Owners must be willing to come back periodically for follow up care and evaluation of their pets. Owners, with pets in studies, play a more active role in their pet's health care, gain access to new treatments before they are widely available, and can help other pets.
