We have a visiting mobile CT scanner which is an essential tool for diagnosing certain conditions which are otherwise difficult to detect. CT scanners provide X-rays of your pet’s internal organs and bones to enable your vet to prescribe the best internal medicine, orthopaedics, soft tissue treatments.
CT scans are an essential tool for veterinarians:
- To identify tumours
- To diagnose soft tissue injury
- To see what is going on in difficult-to-reach areas
Rest assured that your pet won’t feel any discomfort. Since he or she must remain still during the scan, they are sedated and monitored by a qualified veterinary nurse. The table on which will be laying will then advance slowly into the CT scanner for the imaging to take place. The result then appears on a monitor for a qualified technician to review.
