What’s 🐢 Stash’s 🐾 Story πŸ“–?


A LUMP here can be caused by infection or inflammation or even cancer 😱

@drboazman explains the meaning πŸ€” of the saying β€œDON’T WAIT πŸ—“ ASPIRATE πŸ’‰ β€œ

Thanks to πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» digital πŸ”¬ cytology we can now PROVE this lump has NO evidence of CANCER within minutes πŸ’¨ ! @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 πŸ’‰ the cytology slides are made for aπŸ”¬interpretation by a pathologist. #veterinarypathology​

In the past we had to wait πŸ“† for a lab courier πŸš™ to pick the slides up, have them ✈️ to a reference lab facility, then wait πŸ€” for the πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ pathologist πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ to be assigned to read πŸ‘€ them, & finally receive a cytology report!

This process went from πŸ—“ days to minutes ⏰ & has enabled our team to act faster πŸ’¨ than ever without having to wait πŸ€” 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 πŸ”¬ images are easily manipulated on the large touch screen πŸ“Ί while we wait a few minutes to read the cytology report online πŸ‘πŸ» #veterinarymedicineβ€‹πŸ’‰πŸ’Š

Digital πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» πŸ”¬ Cytology = Truly Amazing ! #digitalcytology​ #telecytology​
