GPT saved my dog’s life
Despite the "I am not a veterinarian..." disclaimer, it
complied. Its interpretation was spot on, and it
suggested there could be other underlying issues
contributing to the anemia (Image 3 & 4).
When we reached the second vet, I asked if it's possible
it might be IMHA. The vet agreed that it's a possible
diagnosis. They drew blood, where they noticed visible
agglutination. After numerous other tests, the diagnosis
was conﬁrmed. GPT4 was right.
We started the dog on the proper treatment, and she's
made almost a full recovery now. The most impressive
part was how well it read and interpreted the blood test
results. I simply transcribed the CBC test values from a
piece of paper, and it gave a step by step explanation
and interpretation along with the reference ranges,
which I conﬁrmed all correct.
GPT-4 saved my dog's life. After my dog got diagnosed with a tick-borne
disease, the vet started her on the proper treatment, and despite a
serious anemia, her condition seemed to be improving relatively well.
After a few days however, things took a turn for the worse...
I noticed her gums were very pale, so we rushed back to the vet. The
blood test revealed an even more severe anemia, even worse than the
ﬁrst day we came in. The vet ran more tests to rule out any other
co-infections associated with tick-borne diseases, but came up negative.
At this point, the dog's condition was getting worse and worse, and the
vet had no clue what it could be. They suggested we wait and see what
happens, which wasn't an acceptable answer to me, so we rushed to
another clinic to get a second opinion
In the meantime, it occurred to me that medical diagnostics seemed like
the sort of thing GPT4 could potentially be really good at, so I described
the situation in great detail. I gave it the actual transcribed blood test
results from multiple days, and asked for a diagnosis (Image 1 & 2).
