Blood Machine Installed in Veterinary Hospital
June 30, 2016
Over the past few months, we have witnessed our veterinary hospital project move forwards by leaps and bounds. It has taken a lot of work to get where we are, not just physical work but time spent on phone calls, going over contracts, talking to companies to find the best products for the best price, and so much more. Finally, we are seeing the culmination of our work, last week our blood work machine arrived. On Monday IDEXX sent a representative to make sure it was properly installed and taught our staff how to operate it.
Although it is not the final piece to the veterinary hospital puzzle, it is a huge step towards having the ability to perform tests and surgeries on-site. Before the blood machine arrived, we had to take samples over 40 miles away to our veterinarian, wait for him to run the tests, and then get the results, before we knew anything about what was going on with our animals. Now, we can run the tests here and get the results that much sooner.
The blood machine was one of the most expensive items that we needed for our veterinary hospital. But thankfully, the amazing people at IDEXX worked with us to get the best deal on it possible. They are very supportive of what we do here and are doing everything they can to make sure that we can take care of the animals we rescue.
We are getting very close to having the veterinary hospital equipment fully funded. We have already begun purchasing the equipment and every day it seems like new items are put in place to fill the wonderful building that will help us keep the animals in our care healthy and safe. We hope that you can join us either on August 18th for the Grand Opening or August 20th for the Members Only tour to see how your support has helped us see this dream of ours become a reality.
