VetCompass™ is now the largest research database of veterinary clinical data in the world and shares anonymised clinical data with over 20% of UK vet practices. The impact of the research flowing from VetCompass™ studies was evident at this year’s BSAVA Congress which featured 7 oral VetCompass™ presentations on topics ranging from diabetes in cats to breed-specific studies on cat and dogs.
Refreshingly, 6 of these 7 topics were presented by current RVC undergraduates which also highlights the power of VetCompass™ as a teaching and career development tool for the next generation of RVC veterinary graduates.
