Clinical Trials



We are currently enrolling patients in a number of important studies to advance the field of veterinary medicine.

Veterinary clinical trials are research studies that investigate whether a new medical treatment offers effective therapy for certain conditions including whether the new treatment is better than the current standard therapy. With each study, we're able to answer questions that help us find better ways to diagnose, prevent and treat diseases in pets.

At NorthStar VETS, we're not only the region's leading veterinary emergency, trauma and specialty practice, but we also provide access to novel treatments by offering pets the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. These leading-edge treatments are often made available at a reduced cost.

We are currently enrolling patients in a number of important studies to advance the field of veterinary medicine.

If you are interested in having your pet evaluated for participation in one of these studies, or to learn more, please contact NorthStar VETS at 609.259.8300, or email info@northstarvets.com.

Canine Lymphoma and Acupuncture

Canine Lymphoma and Acupuncture Clinical Trial at NorthStar VETS

Dr. Dorothy Jackson is participating in a clinical trial to determine the benefits of using acupuncture for our canine lymphoma patients. Acupuncture is well documented in human oncology to reduce side effects of chemotherapy, but until now has not been studied in our canine patients. Minimizing side effects, such as gastrointestinal upset and decreased blood cell counts, will not only make these patients more comfortable but also allow for the use of more effective doses of chemotherapy.
