Six Unique Advantages of the VetPharm Study Management Model
What makes us a breed apart.VetPharm’s competitive advantage lies in its comprehensive approach to clinical trial support – an approach unique in veterinary research. Key elements of this approach were adapted from procedures proven in human clinical testing at a major university medical center. Factors that differentiate VetPharm from our competition include:
- Exclusive Dedication to the Veterinary Industry
VetPharm is the leading organization of its kind dedicated solely to the animal health industry. We do no testing of human products, nor do we engage in any other research activities.

- Skilled, Experienced Investigators
VetPharm features an exclusive consortium of more than 1,000 private-practice and university-affiliated veterinarians with significant clinical testing experience. Included among our affiliates are board-certified specialists in all major disciplines.

VetPharm’s consortium assures study sponsors a ready and consistent supply of highly-qualified and experienced veterinarians. One call to VetPharm solves all recruiting problems.
