Veterinary & Animal Sciences

Veterinary & Animal Sciences

CABI has been providing scientific information in veterinary science and animal science since the 1930s. Our resources are used by veterinarians, animal scientists, researchers, livestock farmers, extension workers, policy makers,  teachers and students to improve the health, welfare and productivity of animals in both developed and developing countries.

Our CAB Abstracts database covers all aspects of animal science, including dairy science, husbandry, breeding, welfare and behaviour, genetics, reproductive biotechnology, and nutrition of domestic and farmed animals and aquaculture species, and all aspects of veterinary medicine including companion animals, equines, wild animals and food animals.

The nutrition content covers feeding of livestock, fish and shellfish, zoo animals, equines and companion animals , nutrient digestion, absorption and metabolism, feed technology and preservation, and the role of diet in the aetiology and treatment of disease.

For dairy science and technology the entire dairy supply chain is covered from the farm to the consumer including processing dairy products and their nutritional value.

All of the veterinary information in CAB Abstracts is included in VetMed Resource enabling veterinary practitioners to access the world’s scientific information on their subject and to base practice on the best available evidence.

CABI’s Animal Science database covers nutrition, dairy science and technology, breeding, health, genetics and biotechnology. It is tailored for those working in animal science at universities, research institutes, genetic and feed corporations, dairy companies, government agencies and research planners.

Animal Health & Production Compendium covers the health and production of pigs, poultry and ruminants. It contains over 800 datasheets on diseases and breeds with pictures, glossary and distribution maps.

Aquaculture Compendium addresses issues of health and production of aquatic animals and plants. It includes case studies covering major aquaculture issues and hot topics that summarise present knowledge, and provide models of practical problem solving and improvement through educational, technical, social or economic innovation.

We also have a growing catalogue of CAB Reviews, Books and eBooks on animal health and welfare and other areas of agriculture. 

CABI is also a partner in the secretariat for the STAR-IDAZ International Consortium on Animal Health, which aims to coordinate animal health research globally.
