'Imagine a system that all the vet practices in the world were connected to and what opportunities that crowdsourcing of data could have on the future of our pets' health.'
This quote is taken directly from The Futurist Vet: Science Fiction Veterinary Healthcare Is Already Here, a new book by Dr Gordon Roberts. This interesting read provides fascinating insight into the future of veterinary medicine and the cutting-edge work already being undertaken. One of the topics covered is the use of veterinary Big Data to monitor companion animal health. Collating information from over 500 veterinary practices, VetCompass is proud to already be using Big Data to better understand the common conditions affecting companion animals in the UK.
