Clinical Trials for Animals with Cancer

Last Modified: September 17, 2012


Are there clinical trials for pets with cancer? If so, how do you find them?

Erika Krick, VMD, DACVIM Veterinary Medical Oncologist, University of Pennsylvania, responds:


There are multiple ongoing clinical trials for pets with cancer. You can go to the Veterinary Cancer Society website at for more information, or you can go the websites of different veterinary hospitals and look for oncology clinical trials. To find ongoing trials at the UPenn vet school, you can search for the VCIC (veterinary clinical investigations center) website.
