  About

VetCompass shares and analyses veterinary clinical information to understand the disorders and improve the welfare of companion animals

Testimonials

  • “Comparing conditions that affect welfare, in order to help prioritise efforts to tackle problems, depends on taking account of intensity (e.g. how much it hurts), duration (how long it hurts for) and the numbers of animals affected. To estimate the latter we need to know the proportion of animals affected. Here at UFAW we are seeking that important information, about the prevalences of genetic welfare conditions, for inclusion at the UFAW genetic welfare problems website. I welcome your project”. www.ufaw.org.uk

  • As the largest UK veterinary charity, PDSA provides free veterinary services to sick and injured animals & promotes responsible pet care. PDSA cares for more than 400,000 pets and provides 2.7 million treatments each year. Alongside our provision of frontline clinical care, PDSA has recognised the benefits that its large clinical database can bring to important nationwide epidemiological initiatives such as VetCompass. We hope that our involvement in the VetCompass initiative will aid in the further development of evidence based veterinary medicine.
