Cat & Dog Scan
In Canada, CT scans will now be more readily available to four legged patients. Charlottetown’s Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island is testing a new CT machine that will be used to diagnose animals. In the past, only the critical cases were taken to a local human hospital under sedation and scanned. This new machine will be available for all animals that need it.
X-ray machines are already used in most vets’ offices. It is great to see that the advanced technology of CT will help save even more lives. “We’ll be able to use it as a day-to-day tool that I’m sure in six months from now we’ll look back and wonder how we ever got along without it," said Dr. Tracy Matthews, the AVC hospital director.
There is no value that can be placed on human or animal life, and the best medical care should be available to all.
