2019 is bringing a lot of new trends to the veterinary world. We are seeing a greater interest in smart technology from even the most reluctant pet owners, and diets that are emulating human options means that vets will need to be quick to adapt their recommendations. However, when it comes to veterinarians and digital radiography, there are a variety of different trends that are worth adapting to as well. The positive here is that the technology is in a good place to do so.
For example, pain and stress management during even the most innocuous procedures are going to be a bigger concern to many people who come into your practice. The good news here is that digital radiography is a good fit for these concerns, with less radiation exposure to worry about. However, you may need to also be prepared to field questions about sedation, as “fear-free” practices are becoming more popular.
Another thing that you may see is an increased demand for radiography services. Much like the human population, the pet population is aging, and this means more vet visits and potential conditions to treat. This means that efficient technology and workflows to process the increased business is paramount for all veterinary practices.
Veterinarians and digital radiography are transforming from a novelty to the standard, and technology is adapting to make these options more accessible. For example, there’s JPI Healthcare Solutions and our DirectVet 110-V DR System. This veterinary x-ray solution brings together our ExamVue software, a veterinary table that’s easy to install, and a digital detector for a solution that anyone can use and benefit from. By setting things up quickly, you can improve your efficiency and have a veterinary practice suited for today’s demands and pain points.
