Companion Pet Care has just gone a little greener (and we hope our colleagues will be green with envy!) We have just acquired a brand-spanking new digital x-ray system which allows us to dispense with harmful developing chemicals. We simply take our radiographs using special digital x-ray cassettes, which are read directly into a computer, and we have the images within a few seconds!
We can make exposure adjustments after the images have been taken, allowing us to take far fewer radiographs while trying to get the exposure just right, thereby exposing your pet to less radiation. We can also communicate our images to specialists for review simply by sending an e-mail instead of trotting down to the post office with our precious one-of-a-kind images and sending them away. We can even copy images onto a CD-ROM for clients if they need to hand-carry them to a specialist for referral cases, or look at them at home on their own computers.
We’ve been using our new system for about 3 weeks, and are very pleased with the ease of use and the quality of our images. Feel free to ask about our new equipment next time you’re in our office!
