Question:

Can I donate my pet's body to veterinary science?

Lili Duda, VMD, MBE, DACVR Veterinary Radiation Oncologist- University of Pennsylvania, responds:

Answer:

Many veterinary schools have Educational Memorial Programs through which owners can donate their pets' bodies to veterinary medical science. Typically these donations are used to help teach veterinary students anatomy, surgical approaches, and diagnostic techniques. These programs are not designed to research particular diseases or conditions in pets. If that is your interest, consider searching for veterinary clinical trials.
