Boys and their toys!
It has been a while since I have updated you on what goes through my mind on a daily or weekly basis and the questions that I get asked regularly. For those who did not read my original blog article several years ago, I intend to inform you of interesting tidbits and questions that I get faced with on a daily basis. Something that we concentrated on towards the end of last year with a veterinary business trainer from America was why Vet HQ? What is our unique difference compared to our competitors?
Our answer is simple, we will offer you and your pets excellence in customer service, complete health care for your pet, and a health care that is individualised for you. No one will work harder to ensure you are satisfied. It is my promise to you that we will make the relationship work.
To do this from the beginning I have invested in some of the best equipment to ensure that I can offer the best in sub-specialist veterinary care in Sydney. I thought I would take the next few blogs to tell you about what we have.
In March last year we bought a brand new Sonsite S8 ultrasound machine from America. This machine has some of the latest bells and whistles that have allowed us to investigate abdominal and cardiac disease proficiently. Occasionally we still get the specialists in to review our work and to train us and only last week the specialist used our machine and said that it was a ‘pleasure to drive’. We have picked up many cancers, infections and abnormal accumulation of fluid that with treatment has successfully saved many patients lives.
Key Hole or minimally invasive surgery is all the rage in people. The technology and training has been slow to filter down to us but has definitely arrived. In January of last year we invested heavily in this equipment and in training. Currently we routinely will use laparoscopy to desex female dogs, for liver biopsies and to assist in prevention of gastric bloat in dogs. We have found it an exciting skill to develop and one that places far less strain on our patients.
