Clinical Investigation

The Caspary Research Institute conducts clinical investigation of naturally occurring disease in companion animals to enable more effective diagnosis, advanced medical and surgical treatment and prevention of disease in all pets. Joint efforts are made with those studying the same illnesses in humans. Among our collaborators are:

  • NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center
  • Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

  • NYU Langone Medical Center
  • Yale University, Cornell University, The Ohio State University and many colleges of medicine & veterinary medicine

Investigations are conducted by observing and treating naturally occurring disease. Animal Medical Center does not induce disease for research and does not maintain any laboratory animals for research.

Community Outreach

AMC meets special needs by offering a variety of free or subsidized services to those in need:

In 1981, Animal Medical Center sponsored the nation’s first conference on pet loss, sparking programs around the world and the founding of the Carola Warburg Rothschild Society for the Human-Animal Bond.
