VetCompass Australia collects demographic and clinical information from day-to-day veterinary clinic consultations around the country. We then use this wealth of data to investigate the range and frequency of health problems seen in cats, dogs and horses. Ultimately this will give us a greater understanding of these diseases and conditions and so improve their identification, treatment and prevention.
