Imagine Sassy, a beloved dog who fell seriously ill with symptoms that puzzled her vet. Despite various tests, the cause remained a mystery, leaving Sassy's owner worried and searching for answers. In a final attempt to find a solution, he turned to ChatGPT, an AI tool, and shared Sassy's symptoms. The AI combed through its vast database and suggested a tick-borne illness as a possible diagnosis. Armed with this new information, Sassy's owner returned to the vet, who confirmed the diagnosis and started treatment, giving Sassy a chance at recovery. This true story highlights the potential of AI to aid in diagnosing complex or rare conditions that even experienced professionals may struggle to identify.
