Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine

Small animal

Veterinary surgeons and pet owners make many decisions together that directly affect the welfare of the animals involved. It is essential we have good quality research that is useful in the clinical setting to ensure there is a good scientific basis to the decisions made. The CEVM has a number of projects that directly involve vets who treat, and people that own cats, dogs, rabbits and a number of other species.

One of the major areas of our current work is getting vets and owners involved in directing the research that we do so it is as relevant as possible to clinical practice. One of the projects concerns Chronic Kidney Disease in catsDogs with arthritis, and Preventative healthcare consultations.  Please visit these sections on our website to find out how you can be involved.

For more information about other projects relevant to small animals go to the Population research section of the CEVM website and Shelter Medicine or Companion animal health.
