Notably, the overwhelming majority of those veterinary professionals who have tapped into AI, are using these tools in their veterinary setting daily or weekly, » commented Sebastian Gabor, CEO at Digitail. « While it is premature to state that AI is ready for universal implementation in veterinary medicine, it’s evident that it currently serves as a viable tool with specific applications. Insights from the survey respondents, along with the feedback from Digitail’s clients using Tails AI, have already allowed us to identify specific areas where this technology demonstrates reliability and positive impact for both staff and pet parents. »
