What kind of pictures should you post in the feed?

  • Clear well-lit pictures of the case.

  • Zoom or close-up pictures can be useful to better show the problem.

  • Pictures of scans, imaging results, slides, test results and printouts can be very interesting and are encouraged.

  • Make sure to keep your phone very still for best quality pictures and make sure it’s in focus.

  • You can upload up to three pictures to best show your case.


What kind of pictures should not be posted in the feed?

  • Any picture depicting any intentional cruelty to an animal by you.

  • Pictures of healthy animals unless it is a follow-up on a case.

  • Pictures that easily identify animal owners.

  • If you see what you deem to be an inappropriate picture, please click on ‘Inappropriate’. We’ll investigate and remove it if we agree.


How will I know if comments are valid and worth considering?

  • One way is to look at how many others agree with the comment by the number of upvotes it has received

  • Look at the commenter’s profile and note how many people follow him/her or like their posts.

  • Comments are just other opinions and should be taken as such. There is often no one right answer to animal health questions and considering many opinions is a great way to support your practice.

How quickly will I get comments from colleagues?
