What goes into VETbytes clinical guides? 


Search methods: All topics are researched using veterinary and medical databases including CABI Vetmed resource 1989-current and PubMed for papers in English. Searches used for each topic are displayed. 

Peer review: All externally peer-reviewed by at least two veterinary specialists, providing confidence in the content and reassurance that you are following “best practice” 

Flexibility: Our guides emphasise the management options available, there is rarely a “one size fits all” solution. The risk/benefit for a procedure or treatment is discussed, including cost implications if relevant. 

Transparency: We provide clear guides where evidence allows, but where consensus is yet to be reached, this is clearly stated. Names and qualifications of authors and specialist reviewers are displayed for each topic

Updating process: Content is updated regularly. Evidence for change in a guide that would seriously impact the health or welfare will be updated urgently. New evidence that would change or confirm our current recommendations will be updated within 3 months 

Conflicts of Interest: The creators and funders of this resource have declared no conflicts of interest that could potentially lead to bias.

Feedback: As a new resource we particularly value your feedback. The responsibility for all clinical decisions lies solely with the user and if there is any information in this website that you are unsure about you should cross-check it with alternative sources, including those listed as references.
