The Companion Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (CAVSNET) is a comprehensive disease surveillance system that combines clinical practice data from multiple electronic health software platforms. CAVSNET is based out of the University of Minnesota and modeled after the successful Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (SAVSNET) at the University of Liverpool. CAVSNET aims to collect data from small animals and equines.

The CAVSNET Team participates in the University of Minnesota Antimicrobial Resistance and Stewardship Initiative (ARSI). ARSI provides high-quality and evidence-based resources for antimicrobial resistance and stewardship and conducts research to advance knowledge of companion animal (dogs, cats, horses) diseases and treatment.
