Partnership with our customers is the core of our business and because of our customers decision to choose SOUND as their imaging partner we are empowered to give back to the veterinary and local community.
SOUND has contributed over a half million dollars in donated equipment, travel and professional services to dozens of amazing projects and assisting in finding forever homes for over 1200 dogs and cats.
All this would not be possible without our customers and our associates. With their continued support, we look forward to building on this incredible program.
Cheetah Conservation Fund – UPDATE
“One of the aspects I like the most about the machine is that you can save the exams from each patient, so we can always go back to that exam and evaluate it again or compare it to new scans. The company also gave CCF’s vets special training on a video call with their representative. We really appreciated it because it allowed us to use more functions of the machine so we can provide better care to our animals. Thank you SoundVet.
– Dr. Ana Basto Veterinarian, Cheetah Conservation Fund Veterinarian”

The Equitarian Project
The Equitarian Project is put on by the Texas Equine Veterinary Association. This project includes sending out volunteers to countries like Guatemala and Nicaragua. The trips are scheduled biannually bringing veterinarians to provide medical care to the horses there. They go once in February and again in the fall. In these countries the medical care for the horses is not easily accessible and the horses are used daily for work.
The Academy of Veterinary Imaging leads an adoption program that rescues and adopts animals from local shelters. The animals are seen by a veterinarian and ensure they get healthy and then find forever homes. To this day over 1,275 animals have found forever homes.
WVS Thailand Facility
With the support from our partners Mikasa, Varex Imaging, and Veterinary X-Rays, we are proud to supply a fully equipped radiology suite within the WVS Thailand facility. WVS is now able to use this important equipment to provide the best care possible for animals who are in desperate need.
