New Trials

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of optical coherence tomography (a non invasive optical imaging technique) for detection of incomplete surgical margins following surgery for skin and subcutaneous tumors in dogs.
Heart disease with mitral valve regurgitation (a leaky heart valve) is the most common heart disease in dogs.  Some of these dogs remain perfectly healthy, but others develop problems such as heart failure and ultimately early death.  Previously, extensive evaluation of a dog's heart was not available in veterinary medicine.  Now, we can easily perform these exams in dogs to learn how to best treat their heart disease.  Our goal is to learn more about mitral valve disease in dogs so that we can provide better care and a longer period of improved quality of life for them and their owners.
Constipation is characterized by absent, infrequent, or difficult defecation associated with retention of feces within the colon and rectum. The objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of new fiber based diet in resolving constipation compared to an experimental control diet.
