Manhattan Cat Specialists Goes Digital!

2010 is going to be a big year for my cat hospital, Manhattan Cat Specialists. We're going be open on Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and we're expanding our hours on Saturday, so that we'll be open 'til 6:00 p.m. as well. We've hired a new receptionist, Kate. We're adding a new doctor on the weekend, Victoria Sheheri. And to top it all off (drum roll, please.....) we have purchased a digital x-ray machine! It’s up and running and works great! No more x-ray film, no more messy fixers and developers. We take a radiograph, and in 50 seconds, it is up on the computer monitor where I can adjust the brightness and contrast, zoom in, zoom out, magnify, flip and rotate. I can e-mail the radiograph to a radiologist for a second opinion if I need to. I can save the x-ray to a disc and give it to the client so that they can take it for a second opinion if necessary.

It’s great. At the moment, only 24% of veterinary practices have one, so I feel we've really plunged into the modern with this baby.
