i think that people will not want to bring their animals into a place with ai or robots. they will want to talk to a person who they can connect with and feel safe with because they know they are experienced and love animals.

Just like with human doctors, the job can be divided into two parts: Diagnostics and Treatment. Diagnostics is really hard, because there is so much data and research material and you need to combine all of this to make the diagnosis. This is something that is actually really easy for AI to do and with much better accuracy than what humans can do. Even if human doctor is kept to make the final judgement, just having AI to prevent misdiagnosis will reduce the need of human work in both diagnosis and treatment as correct cure is found faster.

No one sane would risk a pricey robot getting bitten, scratched or kicked...
