Merck Manuals

The Manuals, known as the Merck Manuals in the United States and Canada and MSD Manuals outside the United States and Canada, are one of the world’s most widely used medical information resources. The Manuals have committed to making the best current medical information accessible by up to 3 billion health care professionals and patients on every continent by 2020.

We believe that health information is a universal right and that every person is entitled to accurate and accessible medical information. We have a responsibility to protect, preserve and share the best current medical information to enable more informed decisions, enhance relationships between patients and professionals, and improve health care outcomes around the world. 

That’s why we are making the Merck Manuals and the MSD Manuals available for free in digital form in multiple languages to professionals and patients around the world.

Merck Veterinary Manual

Merck & Co., Inc., has a long history of providing medical information to both human and animal health care professionals. For more than 60 years, the Merck Veterinary Manual (MVM) has provided veterinarians and other animal health professionals with concise and authoritative information on diseases and management of food-producing, companion, laboratory, and exotic animals. The new 11th edition in print and the expanded content on this site carry on this proud tradition. The contents of the MVM are also available as an app for handheld devices, providing enhanced capability to quickly access needed information.

Although the contents of the book have expanded with each edition, the MVM remains true to its original objective: a concise, easy-to-use, comprehensive reference that covers the diversity of species and animal diseases worldwide. Coverage is straightforward and practical, with explicit recommendations given for treatment whenever possible. The succinct discussions also serve to give readers a strong foundation for seeking out and understanding more detailed information available elsewhere.

The MVM covers all the basics, but it is also often relied on for areas not commonly encountered in the daily routine of most animal health professionals. This is no more evident than in the growing role of veterinarians in today's environment, in which general practitioners and specialists alike must practice awareness and vigilance in recognizing the impact of the international movement of animals, maintaining a safe food supply, and minimizing the spread of infectious animal disease and the threat of zoonoses.

The MVM also remains committed to engaging and serving the educational needs of users in various ways through multiple social media sites, working relationships with students, partnership activity to increase use and availability of our content, and exploring new avenues to offer additional multimedia and other tools.
