Preventative healthcare comprises a significant amount of the time spent in small animal practice in the United Kingdom. The Centre for Evidence-Based Veterinary Medicine has undertaken a unique large body of research that focusses on these important interactions with the aim to maximise the benefits to the patients involved. The published study showed that there are differences between what owners and vets think should happen in these consultations, and the two groups have very different priorities. The study also highlights that these consultations cover many aspects of health, as well as preventative healthcare provision. This research show the potential benefits of providing more information to owners prior to the consultation, encouraging continuity of care, and increasing the dialogue between owners and vets about their priorities and expectations during these consultations.
