|Digital Tools Mean Faster Answers From Your Veterinarian
Technology that enables monitoring and diagnostics can serve as the voice for animals who otherwise cannot communicate how they are feeling. For instance, smart collars help owners understand their animals’ typical behavior patterns such as exercise or feeding levels, which allows them to take action when unexpected changes occur that indicate a problem.
Regularly performed diagnostics provide veterinarians with insights into an animal’s baseline health and the success of prevention or treatment programs. This allows veterinarians and owners to create care plans tailored to the animal.
Furthermore, point-of-care diagnostics allow veterinarians to offer immediate answers to concerned animal owners, relieving their worry and allowing the veterinarian to provide a more thorough service to their client.
