Veterinary Clinical Studies
The St. Louis Cat Clinic prides itself on participating in various clinical studies for new medical treatments for cats. Every study is different, yet important in it’s own way. Studies usually offer free health services for participating cats. Some offer extra financial incentives.
General information about being a part of a clinical study can be found by clicking on: What is a clinical trial?
Check below for more detailed information about studies we are currently working with.
You do not have to be client of the clinic in order to join a study.
1 in 3 cats is unlucky
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is the most common disease affecting cats over 7 years of age and is a major cause of suffering and death in senior cats (up to 50% of elderly cats are affected).
The INSPIRE study is an international research effort to evaluate an investigational medication to manage CKD in cats so they might live healthier lives.
Our practice is currently screening cats for this important global study.
Participation is free!
If your cat has been diagnosed with CKD or is a senior cat, visit www.CatsWithKidneyDisease.com
for more information. Contact us right away if you believe your cat is eligible.
