The creation of a global medical-veterinary community where knowledge and evolution are at the click of a button. The 21st century is being characterized by an aging global population. It is also true that, due to economic and social factors, the birth rate is declining dramatically worldwide, both in developed and in some underdeveloped countries. On the other hand, the number of companion animals is growing exponentially. Companion animals have become part of the family and a pillar within the household. These animals are no longer just backyard or guard animals, they live with us and share our homes. The change in the status of the companion animals in society has also changed the way guardians care for their animals. The demand and search for medical and veterinary services have increased significantly because the concerns of guardians about animal health, quality, and welfare have become a priority. This globalization is a crucial step in ensuring that the veterinary medical community meets the challenge posed by the evolution of society regarding its animal companions.
