Food for thought on the new iodine-restricted diet for feline hyperthyroidism
Seth Wallack DVM, DACVR


One can hardly look at a veterinary magazine or online industry news source without seeing an advertisement or article about Hill's new y/d prescription diet. With the recent increasing popularity of this food, veterinarians are regularly asking our radiologists and staff veterinarian for an opinion.

When to consider outpatient CT
for non-critical cases
Speed and accuracy.

These are the fundamental ideas behind the ever-improving technology in veterinary medicine.

But improving on these concepts is really just a means to an end, because what we're really after at the end of the day is to do our jobs better in order to provide the best care to our patients. With CT we can now map a portosystemic shunt (PSS) noninvasively. We can get to the bottom of that chronic nasal discharge in a matter of seconds and much better than radiographs ever could. And we can even determine whether or not an adrenal tumor has invaded the surrounding vessels before surgery.

And did you know that VICSD can now do all of this without anesthesia?

We put together a guide for you to keep in your hospital to help determine when to send out a non-critical case for CT imaging. And if you have any questions about a particular patient, please give us a call.
