Special Issue

Welcome to this special issue of In Practice to mark the journal’s 40th anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, we asked our clinical editorial board members to select articles across the species that showcase the best of In Practice. Some of the articles picked are recent publications, while others go back some way into our extensive archive, but which are still relevant today -- we hope you enjoy reading and reflecting on them.

Have you seen the new In Practice?

We recently redesigned In Practice to mark the journal's 40th anniversary and to give it fresh appeal and improve its readability.
Here, vets Ebony Escalona and Will Peel reflect on the journal's changes and reminisce about their student days where they used In Practice to revise for their finals.
We hope you love the new In Practice as much as they do!
