Pet Heroes

The families of our Pet Heroes chose to enroll them in clinical trials evaluating new treatments for several diseases, including cancer, heart disease and arthritis. Knowledge gained from these trials was used to design better treatments for both pets and humans.
Thank you to our Pet Heroes for helping advance science and impacting countless human patients.
