Our New Ultralight Wireless Digital Radiography System
We are pleased to announce the newest addition to the largest suite of equine digital radiography products. Sprint Ultralight DR™ is 22lbs self-contained, battery powered and only 11.5lbs horse-side, making it the lightest and fastest patient-to-patient wireless portable DR system on the market.
Due to the passage of H.R.8: American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, Section 179 thresholds for 2012 and 2013 have been dramatically enhanced! This means that if you thought you were going to save a lot on your veterinary equipment purchases, you now stand to save even more!
Researchers in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University state that pancreatitis is a common ailment in both cats and dogs. However, due the generic symptoms and lack of a specific medical test for the illness, it often goes undiagnosed. As a pet owner, it is important to be educated about this disease.
We are happy to announce the addition of two brand new equine x-ray products to the Sound™ line: the Mark 1109™ and the Mark 1417™. These two products represent the very latest in veterinary technology that focuses on extending the capability of your practice. As always, our new veterinary equipment will bring you the accuracy, speed, and quality you demand, plus the ease-of-use and consistency you expect from a Sound™ product.
The 2011 census of critically endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park has confirmed that there are at least 400 gorillas living in the park, which is an increase of 100 since a previous census in 2006. The increase in the recorded population is not just a result of improved census methods, but also due to increased expert veterinary care by the Gorilla Doctors who have been working in the park since 1996.

We’re all for the horse saving part, but we'll leave the cowboys alone...for now. Sound™ is really excited to have an opportunity to give back to the equine community. We’re putting our money where our mouth is and we're donating 100% of the proceeds from our 2012 AAEP Wet Lab "Complete Ultrasound Examination & Evaluation of the Stifle" to Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue.
Back in July of 2009, we loaned two of our LX Digital X Ray Acquisition Systems to the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project. This project is dedicated to providing improved healthcare and ensuring the survival of endangered species of mountain gorillas. With our partners, BCF Technologies (Scotland) and Gilmen & Associates (Chicago), we provided several pieces of portable veterinary imaging equipment and personnel to assist the team.
Once again we are proud to sponsor the annual They Ate WHAT? Pet X Ray Contest featured in the September issue of Veterinary Practice News. For those not familiar with the contest, Veterinarians from across the country send in their most jaw-dropping x rays. This year pets have ingested all sorts of household items ranging from small chess pieces to objects almost the size of the animal. The veterinary x rays have to be seen to be believed!
We have just released a new software update for the TruDR eSeries Vet DR system. Version 3.51 is available now. This update features an array of enhancements, such as improved image quality and manipulation, improved modality work list support, and additional data fields.
We have also provided an updated user manual and quick start guide. This software update will be installed automatically to your vet equipment.
Making an investment in digital imaging equipment for your clinic or hospital isn't always the easiest decision. Yes, we all know that the newer digital technologies provide better and faster results, but new technologies take time and money to put into place. These expenses range from staff training on the new machines, to lease or purchase costs for the digital radiography or ultrasound units themselves. The biggest hurdle for many clinics is simply the cost of the machines – but there's a silver lining to this cloud.
