CT Case Studies 2

Advanced imaging has the ability to give clients and clinicians a much better idea of what is going on without the need for invasive investigation. Even in cases with a poor outlook getting a diagnosis can help inform potential treatment or just help owners come to terms with a poor prognosis. The cases below have all been seen here and been reported by VetCT.
