Canadian Veterinary Medical Association
1.1.1 Varies with device
Developed by a Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) expert panel, the Antimicrobial SmartVet app is a bilingual antimicrobial treatment decision tool for veterinarians. The tool provides guidance on selecting appropriate antimicrobial therapy for specific bacterial diseases faced by companion animal practitioners.

The Antimicrobial SmartVet app has an intuitive treatment algorithm that guides the veterinarian through the antimicrobial decision-making process, including:

* diagnostic steps

* recommended 1st, 2nd and 3rd line antimicrobial therapy

* recommendations for advance diagnostics and/or referral

URINARY TRACT INFECTION (UTI) TOOL

The UTI application is the first of a suite of tools to be built into the Antimicrobial SmartVet. It features:

* a treatment algorithm for veterinarians on how to manage antimicrobial treatment for simple and complicated UTIs based on typical antimicrobial activity, the importance of the drug in human medicine and other factors.

* an antimicrobial treatment table that lists recommended therapies, including additional information on pharmacokinetics, contraindications, adverse reactions, etc.

*supplemental resources to help guide veterinarians through successful antimicrobial therapy – e.g. Risk Factors for UTI, Urine Collection and Handling, and Urinalysis Interpretation
