The RVC’s VetCompass™ Programme shares anonymised clinical data with over 20% of UK vet practices and is now the largest research database of veterinary clinical data in the world. The impact of the research flowing from VetCompass™ studies was evident at this year’s BSAVA Congress which featured 7 oralVetCompass™ presentations on topics ranging from diabetes in cats to breed-specific studies on cat and dogs.
