Within the emergency veterinarian industry, understanding new techniques and best practices are of the utmost importance, as it can mean the difference between life and death. However, finding the time to up-skill and keep on top of new developments can be difficult.

Animal Emergency Service Carrara Clinic Director, Dr Rob Webster has seen over the course of his career how quickly methods and protocols change, and how often information is updated.

“The issue with emergency practice is it changes so quickly. Over the 18 years I have been in the industry, I have seen numerous treatment methods and protocols emerge, only to be out of date within one or two years,” explains Dr Webster.

To help close this knowledge gap Dr Rob Webster and the team at Animal Emergency Service has developed VetAPedia, a web-based resource bringing together clinical protocols, flow charts and research papers, and the latest best practice for emergency animal care, with new information added monthly.

At present, access to VetAPedia is free for registered veterinarians.
