Companion Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (CAVSNET)

Horse and dog in field

The Companion Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (CAVSNET) is a comprehensive disease surveillance system that combines clinical practice data with data from veterinary diagnostic laboratories. CAVSNET is based out of the University of Minnesota and is in partnership with the University of Liverpool, who developed the successful Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (SAVSNET) with support from the British Small Animal Veterinary Association. 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.
