One peculiar characteristic of clinical trials set up by FVR is the cooperation with a network of worldwide Veterinarians who offer a nutritional solution to cats and dogs already affected by diseases. 

Pets have the chance to improve their condition while living with their families for the whole trial period, without any change in their lifestyle, except for diet, fully respecting the animal’s well-being.
