Philosophy & Policies

We can now offer an on line source of credit for clients who have expensive or emergency procedures that are not budgeted for.

APED's state-of-the-art Vetel digital radiography system allows us to take on the spot diagnostic radiographs, and we can email or make a digital copy for our clients. We also can use the computer to produce an analysis of the hoof which farriers find invaluable. These radiographs make the veterinary-only depository a thing of the past, and we can do radiographs at your facility if you have suitable facilities.
