Accredited Colleges of Veterinary Medicine – Offering Clinical Trials

This listing is designed to help increase awareness of the many different types of research and therapies that are currently being offered by the various veterinary medical schools here in the US. The availability of these studies may change, so please have your veterinarian determine whether or not the listed clinical trials are appropriate for you and your pet.

The Old English Sheepdog Club Of America is not endorsing these trials, only offering them to increase awareness of the availability of new and hopefully beneficial treatments. This listing does not include every veterinary school, and if you do not see a veterinary school in your area, please feel free to contact them about the availability of clinical trials.
