What is Bovis

Bovis is Vetstream’s forthcoming Cattle Service. It will complement Vetstream’s existing Vetlexicon services: Canis, Felis, Lapis, Exotis and Equis.

We are looking forward to bringing our comprehensive, evidence-based, up-to-date and peer-reviewed content to cattle vets.

Bovis will launch in 2018, but this page will keep you updated in the meantime.  We will post Bovis news here and will regularly introduce you to some of our expert contributors.

Why do you need Bovis?

You can expect excellent practical articles, images, films and audios to assist you with your daily clinical and non-clinical decision making, surgical skills and Herd Health. Our collection of Farmer Information Sheets will assist you with communicating effectively with your farmer clients.
