CPA Recommendation

“For many years now I have been blessed to have an accountant who understands the specifics of operating a veterinary practice and business. He is Steve Macy of Stephen A. Macy, CPA, PA. He has provided unflagging service with regards financial reports, regulatory reportings, and filling any tax or business forms needed for tax reporting.

He has been a resource for me as a practice owner to reduce one area of stress for us as veterinary business owners. Steve’s service frees us to spend more time as doctors. I would love for some of my fellow veterinarians to benefit from his help.

An overview of Steve Macy’s services include: Accounting, Quickbooks Online, Tax, payroll and back office solutions plus consultations.”

Do you have any patients that may benefit from this fully funded opportunity?

Evaluation of a New Therapeutic Option for Mammary Carcinoma

A new investigational drug for canine mammary carcinoma is available for your patients. In this pivotal clinical trial, we will examine the safety and efficacy of a novel formulation that has been granted conditional approval by the US FDA for the indication mammary carcinoma. The clinical trial is being conducted in both the EU and US.

Trial Eligibility Criteria

 Female dogs of any age, weight or breed

 Trial Support and Funding

Dogs will be randomized to receive the new investigational drug or placebo at a 2:1 ratio. Dogs that are randomized to placebo and progress during the 4-cycle treatment period will be offered rescue treatment by the investigator as determined by the protocol.

All diagnostic tests, study drug, rescue medication, and follow-up exams will be paid for by the Study Sponsor.

If you have patients that meet the criteria above, please contact Drs. Curtis Kane or Jen Coyle, or technicians Lexy Julian or Rob Guevara in our Tampa hospital at 813.933.8944.

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled study. Dogs with peripheral lymphoma will have blood work, radiographs, lymph node biopsy, and flow cytometry performed to confirm the presence of non-indolent T-Cell lymphoma.

Biopsy of the lymph node and flow cytometry to confirm the presence of T-Cell lymphoma will be performed at no charge to the pet owner. Owners must be able to present their dog twice per week for 4 weeks, then every other week for 4 treatments, then monthly for 8 months or until disease progression. Once progressive disease is confirmed, the dog will be removed from the study.
