A pet doctor’s job involves getting a list of pet health problems, finding the best value and recommending the best options for the patient.
Now, anesthesiologists and other specialists are taking their expertise to the next level by using technology to make that list more accurate and cost-effective.
The shift is a step toward helping veterinarians and other health care professionals in rural areas pay more attention to the needs of pets, a move that could help reduce emergency vet bills and the risk of serious illness in people.
It is the latest example of the growing trend in health care that can be seen across the country.
The average price for a prescription drug rose by an average of about 9 percent from 2012 to 2015, according to a report from the nonprofit Petcare Alliance.
A growing number of health care providers are using technology and analytics to help them get the most out of their patients.
For instance, the University of North Texas recently installed a mobile app that automatically calculates the cost of various medications and analyzes them to determine which treatments are the most effective for a patient.
The app was developed by Health Analytics, an analytics company that specializes in predicting medical conditions.
Dr. John E. Jones, a veterinary surgeon at the University Hospitals of Cleveland in Ohio, says he often has to make decisions on how to treat patients when a medical condition becomes urgent or when a patient has severe health problems that could require surgery.
Jones said the app can make these kinds of decisions in real-time.
When a patient becomes very sick or is in the hospital, he says, he or she might need to take a closer look at the medications they are taking and how well they are working.
Drayton Brothers, a veterinarian at the Center for Veterinary Research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., says the app also helps him determine the best time to make the most of an injured or sick pet.
If I had a dog, I would make sure to see how fast he’s moving and how fast the blood sugar levels are in a cat.
He would be doing so with a blood sugar level of 140 or so, so he would be a lot more likely to be able to do something about the condition,” Brothers said.
The app also allows veterinarians to see if the best option is to treat a condition that is a treatable condition or a serious problem that could lead to surgery.
The software is available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
It could also help the government get a better handle on how many pets are euthanized in the U.S.
Each year, more than 20 million pets are adopted by people who are not licensed veterinarians, according the U
