Minimum DataBase

Optimise your Minimum DataBase workflow

Get the complete picture of your symptomatic patient in less than 10 minutes

IDEXX makes it easy to carry out the Minimum DataBase in-house during the symptomatic patient visit. Running the Minimum DataBase takes less than 10 minutes, and it can be undertaken in parallel with the patient history and physical examination.

 By having results available to review during the same patient visit, you can engage pet owners by providing a patient report that you explain to them, allowing them to feel fully informed. You can also discuss next steps with your pet owner straightaway and commence treatment. This ensures that your patient receives the most efficient and effective management of their issue.
