High-quality clinical research for dogs and cats is crucial for the sustainable development of the animal health sector, with high quality of care and high patient safety. Veterinary clinical research is also of comparative importance and can increase the understanding of human diseases. This project investigates the conditions for veterinary clinical research in the Nordic countries. The purpose is to provide decision-makers with up-to-date information, to enable well-informed decisions concerning funding and other conditions for veterinary clinical research.
