The Merck Veterinary Manual (MVM) has served veterinarians and other animal health professionals as a concise and reliable animal health reference for over 50 years. The first MVM was published in 1955 and introduced at the annual meeting of the American Veterinary Medical Association in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since its introduction, the MVM has been eagerly adopted by the veterinary profession as a practical and comprehensive resource worldwide.
Over the years, the MVM has more than doubled in volume to accommodate advances in scientific knowledge and the expansion and specialization of the veterinary profession. With online accessibility, the trusted information contained in the MVM is more readily available than ever before. The advanced search feature and logical organization of contents make it easy for users to locate information quickly. In addition, the online version features over 1400 images - including new video and audio files - that allow users to view rare disease-causing organisms, identify plants poisonous to animals, see characteristic lesions, or review practical laboratory techniques.
