Clinical Trials

The Lois Bates Acheson Veterinary Teaching Hospital conducts clinical trials in conjunction with research on disease, diagnosis, and treatment of animals. Veterinarians are a crucial partner in furthering the quality of veterinary care by supporting this research through the referral of clients whose pets may be good candidates for clinical trials.

Trapped Animal Reporting

Pursuant to House Bill 3147 of 2001, the Oregon Legislative Assembly has directed that “Veterinarians licensed and practicing in Oregon shall report to the Dean of the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine, Oregon State University, in a form established by the dean, incidences of treating animals purported to have been injured by a trapping device.” Veterinarians and veterinary technicians, according to this law, are immune from any civil or criminal liability from making such a report.
