People can easily misinterpret when their cat might be in pain, as they are less domesticated than dogs and hide when they are hurt. As a result, cats aren’t seen as often by veterinarians, and despite their popularity the cat health market is significantly underserved compared to dogs. How might we be able to better understand when our cats may be hurting?

This week on the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn and Ivan welcome Susan Groeneveld, Founder of Sylvester AI, to discuss artificial intelligence in animal health, taking a collaborative approach to acquiring data, and ensuring that cat health isn’t treated like a novelty.

Ms. Groeneveld recommends How to Speak Whale: A Voyage into the Future of Animal Communication by Tom Mustill.
