The scope of the STROBE-Vet statement includes observational studies using samples/information of animal origin with outcomes related to animal health, production, welfare, or food safety. Thus, STROBE-Vet encompasses a broad range of veterinary research involving animals (including animal populations such as herds, farms, or flocks), products of animal origin (such as meat or milk), or samples from animals (such as blood or feces). From a study design perspective, the scope of STROBE-Vet includes both observational studies of hypotheses (hypothesis-driven or hypothesis generating) and population-based descriptive studies, such as those estimating the frequency and distribution of disease.
