Being able to generate a list of possible illnesses to rule out based on a pet’s symptoms sounds extremely helpful. Why are such diagnostic tools emerging just now in veterinary medicine?

This week on the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn and Ivan welcome Dr. Mike Petty, US Ambassador for GekkoVet, for a conversation about augmented diagnosis in veterinary medicine, how cognitive bias can lead veterinarians to try to fit symptoms to their believed diagnosis, and how useful quick consults can be to emergency veterinarians.

Dr. Petty recommends Clinical Reasoning in Small Animal Practice and Clinical Reasoning in Veterinary Practice: Problem Solved! by Jill E. Maddison, Holger A. Volk and David B. Church.
