Searching for Information on Veterinary Medicine
Finding all the information you need in a library catalog or a database can require very specific language. For instance, in some cases using the term 'cat' in your search will yield the same results as using the term 'feline,' but in other cases only one of those terms will yield the results you need. This depends on how the source was indexed. Because of this, you may need to try several different search terms before you find what you are looking for.
Here is a list of subject headings to try:
- veterinary medicine
- veterinary technology
- cat (also try feline)
- dog (also try canine)
- horse (also try equine)
- pets (also try domestic animals)
