Our Specialists Equipment
Colour Doppler Ultrasound Machine
Revolutionising our ability to diagnose diseases, our high-quality ultrasound machine gives a much more detailed image of the insides of organs. Before we started using ultrasound, the only way to see inside patients, other than to operate, was to take x-rays, which often requires sedation or anaesthesia. Though this is still important in diagnosis, ultrasound is performed easier and is able to be carried out with animals fully conscious. What's more, it allows us to look at the flow of blood inside organs, particularly the heart.
Blood Biochemistry and Electrolyte Analysers
Allowing us to perform an assortment of blood tests, this state-of-the-art machine means that we are able to pick up on any early signs of liver and kidney disease or diabetes. It enables treatment to be started quickly, meaning that the progress of the disease will be slowed down. Furthermore, it allows us to safely prescribe certain drugs or anaesthetics. We recommend older animals, where kidney and liver function might not be as good, to be tested before we anaesthetise them. Monitoring basic salt levels in blood, which is essential for life, our electrolyte analyser is used for the observation of very ill and hospitalised animals.
