When innovations are rapidly sweeping across all fields of human society, we want to leverage them to improve every aspect of our life and the lives around us --- the companion animals. Veterinary records can be extremely valuable for research and public health --- 60-70% of all emerging diagnoses are transmitted from animals to humans. Beyond that, companion animals have been increasingly used to study naturally occurring diseases as they share similar environments to humans and are often representative disease models to recapitulate diseases in humans.
