WSAVA guidelines are part of Standardization projects that are designed to provide the practitioner with diagnostic and treatment guides for conditions or issues that have global relevance.

The first guidelines were from the work of the Liver disease standardization project, Microchip identification, and Vaccination guidelines groups.  The Global nutritional guidelines is our current ongoing work that provides the practitioner with tools to properly assess the 4th vital sign. This will be followed by the 5th vital signs assessment tool – the Global pain management guidelines.
