WSU Seeking Dogs for Drug Metabolism Study

Dog owners can receive a $20 Amazon gift card for enrolling their pet into Washington State University’s Drugs Optimized by Genomics (D.O.G.) study.

To qualify, dogs must be comfortable in hospital environments and taking oral medications. Subjects must be between 1 and 12 years old, weigh 11 to 176 pounds, and have no underlying medical conditions. Participants will be given a combination of carefully chosen drugs that have been proven to be safe to determine how fast their bodies can process them.

Contact clinical studies coordinator Jennifer Heusser at to enroll your dog or for additional information.
