Companion animals require veterinary attention to prevent, diagnose or treat a huge range of health problems. The VetCompass project collects pet health data routinely recorded by UK veterinary practices, as part of an ongoing study of companion animal disorders.

We aim to investigate the range and frequency of small animal health problems seen by veterinary surgeons and highlight major risk factors for these conditions.

Explore regional differences in demographics of UK pet dogs and cats in a few clicks of the mouse and discover the most common types of health problem affecting their well-being, based on data from VetCompass-participating clinics nationwide.
