DVM Calc is the most comprehensive small animal veterinary calculator available for veterinarians, veterinary medical students, and veterinary technicians. Developed by a group of veterinary specialists and emergency veterinarians, this application contains 26 practical calculators, 15 specific constant rate infusion calculators, and 10 toxicity calculators. Each individual calculator includes an information sheet to explain the calculations. A useful “Notes” page is also included, which allows the user to enter, save and edit notes on multiple patients (up to 300 words/patient). A specific section is included for patient name, signalment and admit date. A basic numerical calculator is also included within the application to allow the user to carry out additional calculations, when necessary, without closing the application to open a separate calculator.

This application is intended for clinical use by veterinarians, veterinary students, and veterinary technicians. The included calculations are to be used as a resource with the understanding that the user’s medical knowledge and clinical judgment may supersede the output information. Like any tool, it is never a substitute for clinical judgment. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of DVM Calc’s content, but all results must be confirmed before use.
