Introducing Our Cutting-Edge CT Machine

Advanced Animal Care CT MachineAt Advanced Animal Care, we are committed to providing the highest level of care to your pets. We're thrilled to announce an exciting addition to our facility: a brand-new CT machine. This cutting-edge technology is a significant milestone in our journey to offer the best diagnostic and treatment options for your pets. Let's explore how this new CT machine will enhance the care we provide.

Unveiling the Future of Veterinary Medicine

Advanced Imaging at Your Fingertips:

Our new CT machine is a powerful diagnostic tool that allows us to take a closer look inside your pet's body. It produces detailed, cross-sectional images, providing invaluable insights into your pet's health. This technology can be used to diagnose a wide range of conditions, from fractures and internal injuries to neurological issues and more.

Non-Invasive and Comfortable:

One of the many advantages of our CT machine is that it's non-invasive and stress-free for your pets.  We understand that our furry companions can't be asked to hold still during a CT scan. That's why, for the well-being and stress-free experience of your pets, sedation and/or general anesthesia are employed. 

How Pet CT Differs from Human CT

Unlike human CT procedures, where patients can follow instructions, our animal friends can't. We cannot verbally direct them to stay still or hold their breath, making sedation or anesthesia a crucial component of our process. Rest assured, our skilled veterinary team is well-versed in administering sedation and anesthesia to ensure the safety and comfort of your pet throughout the CT scan. This tailored approached not only guarantees accurate imagining but also minimizes stress, creating a positive experience for both pets and their owners. 

The Benefits of CT Imaging

CT scans are exceptionally detailed, making it easier for our veterinary team to pinpoint issues that may not be detectable through other methods such as X-ray and ultrasound. This precision leads to more accurate diagnoses and treatment plans.

Faster Results:

With our new CT machine, we can obtain results timely, often within 12-24 hours. This means we can make informed decisions about your pet's health, which is crucial in emergencies or when rapid treatment is necessary.

Minimized Risk:

Since CT scans are non-invasive, they pose less risk to your pets, and the amount of radiation exposure is carefully controlled to ensure their safety.

How Our CT Machine Will Benefit Your Pet

  • Quicker Diagnosis: Faster diagnosis means quicker treatment, reducing your pet's discomfort and helping them recover rapidly.
  • Personalized Care: We can create tailored treatment plans, addressing your pet's specific needs.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that we have advanced diagnostic capabilities can provide peace of mind when it comes to your pet's health.

Cautionary Note: Patients with Kidney Disease and Contrast Use

For the safety and well-being of your pets, it's crucial to exercise caution when considering CT scans, especially if contrast is deemed necessary. While contrast agents are valuable in enhancing diagnostic imaging, patients with pre-existing kidney disease require special attention.

Important Considerations:

  1. Kidney Function Assessment: Prior to administering contrast, our veterinary team will conduct an evaluation of your pet's kidney function. This step is essential in determining the appropriateness of contrast use.
  2. Risk Mitigation: For pets with kidney disease, the potential risks associated with contrast use will be carefully weighed against the diagnostic benefits. Our priority is to minimize any potential adverse effects and ensure the overall well-being of your furry friend.
  3. Alternative Approaches: In some cases, alternative imaging techniques or modified procedures may be considered to obtain the necessary diagnostic information without the use of contrast, prioritizing the health of pets with kidney concerns.

Your Pet's Health Is Our Priority

As always, your pet's well-being is our top priority, and we continually invest in the latest advancements to provide the best care possible. If you have any questions or concerns about our new CT machine or would like to schedule an appointment, please don't hesitate to contact us. Your pets deserve the best, and we're here to provide it.

Other Diagnostic Tools At Our Advanced Animal Care


Digital radiology has transformed the way we diagnose conditions enabling swift and effective treatments.

In the past, positioning a pet for X-ray involved meticulous effort and processing time. With today's digital radiography, we capture images using advanced machinery instantly transmitting them to digital sensors for storage and immediate display. This allows us to identify flaws promptly and retake X-rays on the spot, ensuring accuracy in diagnostics.

Key Advantages of Digital Radiology:

  • Immediate Viewing and Retakes
  • Enhanced Image Quality and Detail
  • Digital Sharing for Efficient Consultation
  • Customizable Viewing with Zoom, Contrast, and Brightness Adjustments

Our practice employs digital radiology for both dental and full-body diagnostics. In dental care, we explore internal tooth anatomy with precision. For the rest of your pet's body, digital X-rays aid in identifying fractures, joint degeneration, and potential foreign objects. Notably, digital radiology emits less radiation than traditional methods prioritizing your pet's safety.

Pet Ultrasound: A Window into Soft Tissues

Beyond X-rays, our practice utilizes pet ultrasound to delve into the intricacies of soft tissues. This non-invasive procedure is invaluable for visualizing organs, assessing blood flow, and detecting abnormalities.

Applications of Pet Ultrasound:

  • Visualizing Internal Organs
  • Assessing Blood Flow and Function
  • Identifying Abnormalities Without Radiation

With ultrasound technology, we expand our diagnostic capabilities, offering a comprehensive understanding of your pet's health. Embrace the future of pet care with our advanced imaging techniques.
