One thought on “App boosts Merck Veterinary Manual content

  1. This is such a great upgrade for vets. Referring to the manual on mobile software will surely allow them to access information quicker. The online references and visuals can also help them explain to pet owners what is going on exactly. It’s even better that the app is free and constantly updated with new studies.
