Terms and conditions of the Imaging Only CT Service: 

A full clinical history is required even if you do not wish to fully refer the case to us. We will image the case and you can either have the images sent to you for interpretation or we can image and provide a full report. The client will have an admission and discharge appointment with a VN and will not see our clinicians so will not be charged a referral consult fee. Contrast media used in advanced imaging are used with caution in patients with impaired renal or liver function therefore patients should have had a pre-anaesthetic biochemistry in the 2 weeks prior to the procedure- if this has not been performed or the referring vet has not provided results of this we reserve the right to perform a Pre-anaesthetic biochemistry on the day of the procedure at an additional cost to the owner.  We will not discuss imaging result with the owners, give any treatments or treatment recommendations * (*except in emergency situations where the patients health and welfare is at risk, in such cases we will always try to contact you and keep you informed )
