What’s 🐶 Stash’s 🐾 Story 📖?
A LUMP CHECK in HIS NECK! 😟
A LUMP here can be caused by infection or inflammation or even cancer 😱
@drboazman explains the meaning 🤔 of the saying “DON’T WAIT 🗓 ASPIRATE 💉 “
Thanks to 👨💻 digital 🔬 cytology we can now PROVE this lump has NO evidence of CANCER within minutes 💨 ! @idexx @idexxlab @fetchdvm360
This reduces the stress for Pet Parents who worry 😱 about their beloved fur babies ! #fastturnaround
The cytology test (microscopic interpretation of cells) has been truly revolutionized ! After aspirating a lump with a fine needle 💉 the cytology slides are made for a🔬interpretation by a pathologist. #veterinarypathology
In the past we had to wait 📆 for a lab courier 🚙 to pick the slides up, have them ✈️ to a reference lab facility, then wait 🤔 for the 👩⚕️ pathologist 👨⚕️ to be assigned to read 👀 them, & finally receive a cytology report!
This process went from 🗓 days to minutes ⏰ & has enabled our team to act faster 💨 than ever without having to wait 🤔 on test results! This means we can have patients like Stash see an oncologist or a surgeon the same day we evaluate the lump if needed!
Our in house high definition 🔬 images are easily manipulated on the large touch screen 📺 while we wait a few minutes to read the cytology report online 👍🏻 #veterinarymedicine💉💊
