In recent years, the intersection of technology and healthcare has sparked a wave of innovation, transforming how medical diagnosis, treatment, and patient care are approached. Amid this transformative landscape, the spotlight on Artificial Intelligence (AI) has grown increasingly brighter. 

While AI has garnered significant attention in recent years, this technology has been in existence for quite some time. It dates back to the mid-20th century when computer scientist John McCarthy first coined the term in 1956. Initially conceived as an academic discipline, AI aimed to replicate human intelligence in machines. Over the decades, as data and computing power have exponentially grown, AI has evolved to become more accessible, affordable, and user-friendly, laying the foundation for its widespread adoption. This has led to AI’s penetration into every industry, including pet care.

The increasing adoption of AI among veterinary professionals is evident in a recent survey conducted in 2024 by Digitail in collaboration with the American Animal Hospital Association. According to the findings, 83.8% of respondents are familiar with AI tools, with 39.2% having already tried such tools in their practice. Moreover, 38.7% of veterinary professionals intend to implement AI in their workflows in the near future. 

Today, AI is discussed as a paradigm shift in how pet care is understood and delivered. It has already found practical applications in fields such as imaging and radiology, voice-to-text transcription, client communication, and health monitoring devices. As a productivity tool, AI holds promising potential to address issues such as access to care, client education, professional shortages, and even veterinary burnout.

The veterinary scene is buzzing with announcements of new AI-driven products and initiatives flooding the market, not only from startups but also from established corporations and academic institutions. For instance, Cornell University’s recent unveiling of Cascade, an open-source platform for running AI algorithms, which is already in use by College of Veterinary Medicine researchers monitoring cows for risk of mastitis. The university’s experimentation with AI continues as Cornell Feline Health Center launched CatGPT, an AI chatbot that answers questions about feline health, connecting cat owners with credible, science-based information. The chatbot draws information from articles from CFHC’s website as well as a database of abstracts from peer-reviewed scientific publications.

We’ve curated this guide to AI tools in veterinary medicine to help veterinary professionals navigate the world of AI, showcase existing solutions, and how they can benefit their practice. The companies on the list are categorically divided into groups, including diagnostics, telehealth, AI assistants, voice-to-text, and PIMS. This overview is based on publicly available data and information provided by the companies.
