Technical advice is our interpretation of how professional standards apply in a particular situation. It is designed to help veterinarians deal with common issues in practice, using their professional judgement to apply the advice to their own situation.
It represents our best efforts at the time of publication but standards and expectations change over time and particular care should be used when reading old advice.
