  • Compendium of Veterinary Vaccines for Transboundary Diseases
    The Compendium of Veterinary Vaccines for Transboundary Diseases is intended to be an international web-based resource on the availability of vaccines for transboundary diseases. The Compendium includes a directory of vaccines by manufacturer, by country of production, and by disease. Government regulatory officials and vaccine manufacturers are encouraged to update and add information to make this a truly valuable international resource.

  • Systems Checklist For Locating Particular Infectious Disease(s)
    This useful publication lists infectious diseases of dogs and cats by organ system; practitioners can then click on a disease to obtain more information.
