The acceleration of bio-material science and 3d printed prosthetics. More challenging consumers. The impact of social media on vet care. Changing demographics. Futurist Jim Carroll covered a wide range of fast-moving future trends to challenge this audience to think about what to do to align to a faster future! A world where:
- minimally invasive surgery is routine (i.e. equine, large animal, small animal)
- remote monitoring of the effectiveness of animal pharmaceutical treatment via ingestible, connected pills happens
- virtual management of pet-obesity treatment plans via remote weight / dietary monitoring technology becomes a thing
- custom hip, joint replacement, or facial reconstruction via locally printed 3D printers at vet’s office is a reality!
