bailey ashmoreBailey is 12½ years old. He has been a regular visitor to our hydrotherapy unit for the past couple of months.

Bailey has suffered with weakness and osteoarthritis in his hind legs for a little while now, and until recently it was under control with just anti inflammatory and pain relief medication.

As time has gone by the strength in his hind legs has gradually worsened creating stability problems.

Bailey’s vet suggested hydrotherapy as a way of helping to build up some strength, stamina, and muscle tone in his hind legs.

It turns out Bailey is a natural water baby and enjoys the sessions almost as much as the endless amounts of treats that he gets during them.

He has completed an initial course and has shown signs of improvement which is very encouraging, and will continue with maintenance sessions to help control his condition.

We are excited to announce our major development to our Warwick hospital including a new procedures room and our brand-new 16 slice, GE Revolution CT installation. We are one of only a few Small Animal Veterinary Hospitals in the UK to benefit from having a CT scanner on site.

ctscanner nov2018

How does it work?

CT examination provides us with cross-sectional and 3-dimensional images of some of the more complex problems our pets face. It uses a motorised x-ray source that rapidly rotates around the circular opening of a donut-shaped structure called a gantry to take multiple sliced images of the area required. Our CT machine employs the very latest advanced imaging technology and the first of its kind in a primary care veterinary surgery in Warwickshire.

Advantages of using a CT

CT imaging enables a more rapid and precise diagnosis which in turn will provide quicker treatment to your pets. In addition, our procedure room is a fully functional operating theatre equipped with both video endoscopy and diagnostic ultrasound. With these new additions, the combination of our diagnostic services and our highly trained team makes Avonvale Hospital Warwick a leader in veterinary diagnosis and treatment across our region.
