This one is for a furry friends and the pet parents. The Small Animal Hospital by Tata Trusts in Mumbai, tested the first CT Scan machine, dedicated for animals. In an Instagram post they announced, "We are so happy to let the community know that the first CT scan was tested and the machine was inaugurated at the hospital today as we continue our trial phase. Our first patient was Mr. Tata’s office companion and a dear friend of ours “Goa” who has been in need of a deeper diagnosis for a non critical issue. There have been no pet-dedicated CT and MRI scanners in the country. This is the first time pets no longer have to use human clinics after-hours without proper monitoring."
Animal lovers were delighted. One user commented," had to take my cat for a CT scan last year. Since there are no dedicated facilities for animals, it was done at a human facility full of patients. We had to be accompanied by a vet, who anesthetised my cat at the CT centre, then proceeded with the scan. Then we had to take my cat back to the vet clinic for recovery till the anaesthesia wore off. The entire process was very time consuming, expensive and traumatising for my cat. Having all facilities under one roof is going to be wonderful."
Another Instagram user wrote, "Congratulations on this incredible milestone! Thank you for pioneering the first CT scan for animals in our country. Well wishes to "Goa" on being the first patient to use the country's first animal CT scan! What a brave and special pet!
The Small Animal Hospital will be launched soon in Mumbai's Mahalaxmi. The hospital is a first-of-its-kind and spans over 98,000-square-foot, across 5 floors with a capacity of over 200 beds. Inspired by philanthropist and former Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata’s vision for a super speciality hospital for pets, the facility will provide round the clock services through pet-sensitised veterinarians, nurses and technicians trained to deliver quality care with a mission to save lives.
