    Veterinary digital content specialist Vetstream has extended its Vetlexicon service with the launch of Bovis, a practical, peer-reviewed online clinical resource for veterinarians working with cattle. Bovis contains more than 750 articles and 1,500 images, videos and sounds from more than 120 of the world’s leading experts in cattle medicine to help veterinarians deliver best practice care. It also contains more than 50 factsheets to support farmer education. Bovis was launched at World Buiatrics Congress which took place in Sapporo, Japan, from 28 August to 1 September 2018.

    Vetlexicon is the world's largest online peer-reviewed veterinary reference service and already includes Canis (dogs), Equis (horses), Felis (cats), Lapis (rabbits), Exotis (exotics) and Practis which supports practice managers. Vetstream is working to complement its existing services with a range of livestock resources of which Bovis is the first. The services are accessed via subscription and feature content from more than 1,000 leading veterinary clinicians from around the world. Vetstream has also partnered with Wiley and CABI, which have provided some of the content. Each service is updated weekly and is accessible from any internet-enabled device.

    Dr Mark Johnston MRCVS, Managing Director of Vetstream, explained: "As they spend so much time out of the practice, either on farm or travelling between clients, we felt that a Vetlexicon service would be an ideal resource for livestock veterinarians as it can provide species-specific clinical information which they can access quickly and easily through their smart device. This saves them from having to rely on possibly out of date textbooks, that are often not where they are supposed to be in the practice."

    He continued: "Our highly skilled and expert contributors have helped us to create a high-quality resource for which bridges the gap between the latest veterinary research and the practitioner. We needed to add in a number of extra categories to provide for the specific requirements of our first livestock service. These include biosecurity (including zoonoses); genetics; herd health, husbandry, welfare; meat and food hygiene; organic farming; notifiable diseases; One Health; legislation and udder health. We are delighted at the positive reception it has already received and look forward to developing services for other livestock species, including small ruminants and pigs, in due course.”
