Small Animal Clinical Studies

Together, we work to expand veterinary medical knowledge, improve patient care, and find new or better ways to diagnose, treat, or prevent diseases that affect our pets through clinical research studies.

The UF Veterinary Hospitals are active in discovering new treatments for naturally occurring diseases and developing a better understanding of how the diseases begin along with new ways to prevent diseases from happening. If you are seeking more information about current clinical studies, visit our pages to the left or feel free to contact us at (352)392-2235 to be directed to a clinical study that may suit your pet’s needs.
