Vetlexicon (the Treat section of VetStream) is a clinical reference source that provides structured point of care information for the treatment of dogs, cats, rabbits, exotics and horses. It is a series of peer-reviewed, comprehensive digital encyclopedias with a wide choice of evidence-based information including 26,000 text and multimedia resources on diseases, drugs, diagnostic and surgical techniques.
Its specialty sections for information on dogs, cats, rabbits, exotics, horses and cattle are Canis, Felis, Lapis, Exotis, Equis, and Bovis. Exotis includes information on Guinea Pigs, Ferrets and the class of Reptiles which covers chelonians, lizards and snakes.
Do a basic search from the search window on the upper right. To get to the Advanced search, click a module (e.g. Canis), then click the Search Vetlexicon link in the center of the page. Choose from the species and/or content type options, for example to see all Canis videos.
