So I thought I should update on how things are going at my practice. There has been alot of exciting changes. First, we are getting alot of new and helpful equipment. Ashburn is now equiped with an ultrasound which is so helpful. Although I still need to practice my knobology (the actual use of the machine knobs) and the systematic exam, it is such a great tool to have and hopefully my clients will let me continue to practice to improve my technique. The digital dental x-ray machine has been installed and is set up. This allows us to take radiographs (x-rays) before the dental cleaning to assess teeth and bone health. If there is a lesion, those teeth can be addressed and treated as needed.…this just adds a whole new level to the diagnostic and preventive treatment approach. This machine can also be used to take radiographs of really small patients as well. And very soon, we will be also getting in Digital X-ray equipment. Although our current standard developing system works very well and provides great results, the digital machine has the advantages of speed, ability to enlarge and change contrast as needed to assess lesions on the computer, and ease of sending films over the internet to other veterinarians for opinions and transfer of records.
On the avian/exotic front: we will soon be carrying Oxbow brand hays and products for sell as well as Harrison’s bird foods. These are two brands that provide high quality nutritional products for herbivores and birds, respectively. Once they are in, I will update the page and create a link.
So these are the highlights for now. As we continue to grow, I will keep everyone posted.
