Human and animal medicine has long been viewed as distinct fields; despite having one huge similarity - medicine. The lack of sharing amongst the disciplines, the lack of shared knowledge, and the lack of communication all contribute to this silo-ization between human and animal medicine. Online platforms and forums that promote the sharing of ideas and information that may help to bridge the gap between these silos are proposed.
