Diagnostics are the crucial link between the two key strategies for good health, prevention and treatment.
Veterinary diagnostics are critical for animal health, identifying health issues before they are otherwise able to be detected and supporting faster diagnosis and treatment planning.
Traditional diagnosis analyzes blood, tissue, urine or stool to detect proteins, antibodies, disease presence or general indicators of overall health. Lab-based testing ensures accurate, quality results while point-of-care diagnostics enable real-time decisions that can ease concerned animal owners. These analyses are a cornerstone of veterinary care.
Digital diagnostics unlock the preventative power of the technology by identifying trends in wellness data that human experts may overlook, creating new possibilities for early disease detection. Artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge approaches mean greater opportunities to detect risk patterns in growing volumes of data.
Diagnostics offer ‘untapped potential’ in the global animal health landscape. These technologies can play a fundamental role in any preventative strategy by offering disease tracking and tracing, allowing for actions like surge vaccination.
Expansion of reliable, effective diagnostics can drastically improve our understanding of disease and strengthen the health of animals around the globe.
