Owning a small clinic or veterinary practice allows for a more intimate, personalized type of care that a lot of people prefer for their pets. However, it also places burdens in terms of resources, budget, and even space for equipment, like digital radiography. Smaller clinics still want to provide the best care possible, but it’s sometimes easier said than done when you consider these requirements. The silver lining here is that there are a lot of options on the table to help make this technology more accessible.
One way to minimize the upfront cost of entry is opting to rent or lease your equipment rather than buying. This is especially a good idea if you’re looking into digital radiography for the first time and aren’t sure what will be the best fit for you. Better to make a small investment and change later than being locked into something that may not fit. There are also portable formats that are better suited to the smaller clinic spaces for things like x-rays. Another thing worth mentioning is that the efficiency benefits you get from digital radiography are better felt with a smaller clinic, like not having your office staff spending time organizing physical images.
Digital radiography isn’t off limits due to time and budgetary concerns. Instead, it’s just up to veterinarians and other medical professionals to find ways for them to apply them appropriately, whether it’s looking for smaller equipment or renting/leasing to save money.
