GUIDE TO CLINICAL TRIALS FOR PETS Our pets are members of our families, and so the relationships that we have with them, as well as their health and safety, are our top priorities as owners. Like humans, many animals become ill due to a variety of diseases. Safe and controlled clinical trials not only provide an opportunity for your animal to receive cutting-edge treatment but also provide an opportunity for this treatment to be provided in the future to all animals.  To view a dedicated page for clinical trials that are geared towards the relationship between humans and their animals and also animal health and safety (https://policylab.us/resources/guide-clinical-trials-pets/). 


The Veterinary Medical Center at The Ohio State University provides more than 18,500 pets with health and medical care each year. Research and hands-on experience have led the center to develop lots of nutritional information and guidance for pet owners.

Based on research by the OSU vet center, a calculator was created to help dog owners learn how much dry dog food to feed their dogs. The age, activity level, and body condition of the pet is input and analyzed against a wide range of dog food brands.

Using the tool, pet owners are shown the resting energy requirements of their pets. The amount of recommended cups per day are revealed depending on brand and other factors. The database contains detailed information on 1,000+ common dog food products, so it’s easy to find a particular brand.

Live pricing for each brand is analyzed across the web showing daily, monthly and yearly costs of food.
