VMDB - The Veterinary Medical Databases
VMDB has collected data on animal diseases since 1964 through member hospitals at North American Veterinary Colleges as an initiative of the National Cancer Institute for the purpose of studying cancer in animals. Since then, 26 universities have submitted more than 7 million records to this database. The current database stores abstracts of hospital records that are a compendium of all the cases at the universities, not just the cancer cases. This makes VMDB a valuable resource for researching animal diseases and effectiveness of treatments.
