Over 1,000 Small Animal Practices invoice details and 500,000 medical case histories have been mined for more than 10 years to provide metrics on canine and feline medical treatments, products used, procedures performed, services provided and practice management approaches. These articles are based on a thorough literature review and those original and unique findings.
