We are excited to announce the addition of a Class IV therapeutic laser to the clinic. The Class IV laser is a deep penetrating laser used to accelerate rehabilitation and healing of various equine injuries. It is also used to help maintain peak performance in our athletic patients and prevent occurrence or occurrence of athletic related injuries.
The laser therapy accomplishes this by accelerating tissue healing at the cellular level, while reducing inflammation and pain. Our laser is equipped with two different probe sizes to obtain optimal results in any application. We are excited to implement this therapy on many ailments ranging from sore backs, tendon and ligament injuries, joint pain, and non-healing wounds.
Goodell Veterinary Clinic now has a new digital x-ray system. This state of the art system uses a DR Canon Cesium plate together with Metron software. This combination provides the best quality image obtainable, allowing us to see details that often weren’t visible using the older, traditional x-ray system. We are very excited to now be able to offer more thorough diagnostic capabilities.
This new system also allows us to offer services not previously available here in southern Oregon. X-rays can now be available to board certified radiologists for consultations at the push of a button. X-rays, along with shoeing prescriptions, can now be e-mailed directly to farriers, greatly enhancing communications. For sale horses, x-rays can be emailed to a sale company, or to the veterinarian of a prospective buyer as part of a pre-purchase exam.
