Veterinary triage tools and their frequency of use




Veterinary emergency and critical care (ECC) is a rapidly expanding field in veterinary medicine.

However, despite the myriad of ways to triage patients in emergency situations, reports on usage frequency of these triage tools are minimal to none.

Our study aims to focus on describing the usage of 2 types of triage tools: shock index and point of care ultrasound, then comparing the usage by general practitioners and veterinarians with advanced ECC training.

At the end, we also hope to describe the general attitude of veterinarians with regards to treating emergency cases, to capture the overall sentiments towards veterinary ECC.

If the goals of this study interest you, feel free to complete this anonymous survey that should take no longer than 5-10mins of your time.

Thank you, your participation is greatly appreciated.
