More about Veterinary Prescriber

Veterinary Prescriber articles are based on a review of the evidence integrated with the views of clinicians to give advice about veterinary medicines that is relevant in clinical practice. A key feature of the editorial process is circulation of draft articles to a range of commentators, including topic specialists, practising vets, regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical companies.

We search VetSRev, BestBets for Vets and PubMed for evidence.


As well as raising points about the interpretation and presentation of the evidence, article commentators can also give personal insights from having used the treatments.

These opinions and insights help put the evidence in the context of clinical practice and can sometimes suggest a way forward for practical clinical decision-making when there is no formal evidence to guide practice

Veterinary Prescriber articles are written in a succinct simple style, avoiding jargon and unnecessary acronyms and are unsigned, reflecting the collaborative approach.
