At Friars Moor we already offer an ultrasound service for your small animals. For example we frequently perform pregnancy diagnosis using an ultrasound scanner – a painless,non invasive way of looking at the developing foetus which may look familiar from human medicine.
This month our small animal vets were very fortunate to have undertaken a refresher training day in ultrasound with an imaging specialist from Southern Counties Veterinary Specialists. The day consisted of classroom and practical teaching enabling the vets to develop their abdominal skills and improve their echocardiography; this is when we use the ultrasound to look at the heart.
It was a fantastic day and will enhance the imaging skills of the small animal vets using the ultrasound at the Sturminster and Blandford branches.
