Pet owners in the West Midlands are to benefit from a new, state of the art CT scanner at Medivet 24 Hour Shrewsbury.
The Medivet 24 Hour Shrewsbury Emergency Veterinary Hospital and general practice has recently taken delivery of an advanced CT scanner. The new tech will enable the team to carry out scans on local Shropshire patients as well as animals from the surrounding clinics.
Branch Partner and Veterinary Surgeon Simon Cook explained: “Our aim is to offer truly exceptional service and the arrival of the CT scanner has certainly allowed us to lift our quality of care significantly.”
“The whole team here is excited to be able to offer owners access to this improved, advanced imaging,” he added. “In the short time that the scanner has been in place, it has enabled us to deal with a number of urgent cases for patients that would not have been previously in a position to travel. It will prove invaluable in all aspects of veterinary medicine, including internal medicine, surgery, oncology and dentistry.”
