What is a BET?

Most of the BETs are about a treatment or test for a particular disease in a particular species. Each BET has a clinical bottom line, but this is not a rule that must be followed for every patient. No animal or group of animals are the same and what is right for one individual may not be right for another.

Veterinary recommendation?

In some situations it may not be possible, or appropriate, to follow what the summary of evidence says e.g. if your pet is allergic to the medication, or if the treatment is unavailable. Your vet will take this into account when making a decision about your animal(s).
