Critically Appraised Topics
BARK publishes a critically appraised topic (CAT) in every issue of the Banfield Journal. Each of these CATs are an appraisal of the literature related to a focused health topic, summarized and packaged to deliver the best evidence and clinical "bottom line" in a concise report.
The BARK team invites veterinary practitioners and professionals to suggest questions for future CATs! To submit your clinical questions, please email the BARK team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
