Veterinary Emergency Care App Launches Updates Feed To Help Vets Stay Current With Evidence-based Knowledge
The point-of-care clinical support tool, VETbytes, has added to the veterinary resource by introducing a ‘latest updates’ feed to its first app for emergency and critical care (ECC).
Launched in July in partnership with the BSAVA, VETbytes has enhanced its ability to make relevant research accessible to the end user by implementing a ‘latest updates’ evidence feed to its emergency and critical care (ECC) app.
Vets treating small animals can now access condensed summaries of the most recently published papers relevant to ECC, enabling them to keep up to date with the evidence without having to spend hours reading.
“This new feature will allow users to access real-time updates to the app so they can be assured they are following the most up-to-date clinical guidance,” said Zoë Coker and Bronwen Eastwood, co-founders of VETbytes.
The British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA), the founding partner of VETbytes, welcomes the development to the ECC app for its members: “The latest addition to the app advances our joint goal with VETbytes, to provide the latest practical, accessible, evidence-based resources for the small animal veterinary community,” said BSAVA President Professor Ian Ramsey.
The VETbytes app is available to BSAVA members with discounted subscription fees and free access is offered to veterinary students.

The ECC app, available from VETbytes, currently covers more than 100 topics and includes other features such as drug (and CRI) calculators, a quick reference section and links to hundreds of source abstracts, as well as CPD accreditation for reflective learning through usage of the app.
VETbytes is available at the point of care on mobile, iPad or desktop. To start a free trial or subscribe to the VETbytes app, visit www.vetbytes.co.uk.
