Clinical trials team

Clinical Trials History

Clinical trials in the Springfield, Missouri area started in 1980 with Dr. Roger Sifferman conducting trials at Grant Avenue Pet Hospital. When Bradford Park Veterinary Hospital (BPVH) opened in 1991, Dr. Sifferman continued to conduct trials at the new facility. To date, both clinics have participated in conducting hundreds of clinical trials. Although Dr. Sifferman retired in the fall of 2017, Drs. Melissa Wiest and Vanessa Domann, along with the rest of the study team, continue to carry on the clinical trials at BPVH.

Clinical trials conducted at BPVH are part of the development of new medications or new label claims for existing medications such as preventatives, health disorder treatments, pain relievers, anti-infectives, food, etc. With your pet participating in a clinical trial, you and your pet are assisting in the development or improvement of treatments for other pets.

At BPVH you can rest assured that your pet's safety is our first concern. Any questions or concerns you may have will be addressed prior to enrollment. In fact, we do not conduct any clinical trial that we would not be comfortable enrolling our own pets on for participation.
