The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Soci­ety shares an update about how a used ultra­sound machine donat­ed by Islands Vet­eri­nary Clin­ic will help APS bet­ter treat the ani­mals in their care.

The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Soci­ety-Fri­day Har­bor (APS-FH) extends a spe­cial thank you to Islands Vet­eri­nary Clin­ic for their gen­er­ous dona­tion of a lov­ing­ly used ultra­sound machine (now affec­tion­ate­ly named “E.T.”) for the APS-FH Clinic.

Ultra­sound is an imag­ing tech­nique based on the use of sound waves and offers a non-inva­sive, non-painful method for diag­no­sis and stag­ing of many dis­eases. It can also be very use­ful when a pet has ingest­ed some­thing it shouldn’t have, to locate and char­ac­ter­ize the for­eign object.

Megan Per­ry, APS-FH’s Clin­ic Man­ag­er & Shel­ter Vet Tech, has spe­cial appre­ci­a­tion for what the equip­ment will do for the APS-FH clin­ic. “This new equip­ment will save us time and cost by enabling us to diag­nose in-house and imme­di­ate­ly treat the home­less pets in our care as opposed to wait­ing for the avail­abil­i­ty of, and pay­ing the cost for, exter­nal vet­eri­nary and/or spe­cial­ty care”. Islands Vet­eri­nary Clinic’s gift has the entire APS-FH team (staff, board, and vol­un­teers) cheer­ing for the oppor­tu­ni­ties this equip­ment brings to our med­ical services.

Shel­ter Man­ag­er, Beth Ander­son, expressed thank­ful­ness for the dona­tion stat­ing that, “shel­ter work can be over­whelm­ing at times but a gift like this eas­es the bur­den. It is assur­ing to know that we have anoth­er valu­able tool to help make the lives of our shel­ter ani­mals better.”
