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.

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.
