DERMATOLOGY

Do your patients have allergies?  Symptoms of allergies include: scratching, rubbing, licking, biting, hair loss, and flaky skin. Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care is participating in a clinical trial for a potential new treatment of Atopic Dermatitis (skin allergies) in dogs.  The study is sponsored by a well-recognized animal health company, which will use the data collected as part of an animal drug approval application to the US Food and Drug Administration. Patients are needed for this study and they must meet specific eligibility requirements, including some restrictions on recent medications and therapies.  The study will last ~ 4 months. All required diagnostic work, study medication and veterinary care will be provided free of charge.   In addition, owners of eligible dogs will receive a generous reward to thank them for their time and effort. To learn more about the study or to see if your patient might qualify please contact Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care Dermatology at 207-878-3121. https://www.petclinicaltrial.com/
