Choosing the Right Clinical Trial for Your Dog | Dr. Craig Clifford Deep Dive

Worried about paying for dog cancer treatment? Want access to the newest options? A clinical trial might be the right fit for you and your dog.


Veterinary oncologist Craig Clifford loves clinical trials. Why? Because they give him early access to some of the newest treatments and therapies, and provide cutting-edge care to patients at a decreased cost – or even completely free.

Dr. Clifford goes over how to find clinical trials and how to evaluate if a particular trial is the right fit for you, from covered expenses to how placebos are used and how many follow-up visits will be needed. The information and results gathered from clinical studies help to get treatments and medications fully approved, making them accessible to more of our beloved dogs.
