Veterinary neurologist Dr. Anne Chauvet invests $90,000 in new diagnostand surgical equipment for her Veterinary Neuro Services clinic in Sarasota, Fla.

We have been very fortunate that our practice has done well in spite of the recession, allowing us to make these investments for our patients' benefit.

Dr. Anne Chauvet, a specialist in the relatively rare field of veterinary neurology, is making a $90,000 capital investment in her Veterinary Neuro Services clinic.

The current investment follows a more than $500,000 expansion in late 2008. Veterinary Neuro Services now is updating its surgical and diagnostic equipment to enhance the clinic's ability to perform intricate brain and spinal surgeries in addition to treating a variety of neurological conditions non-surgically for companion animals and exotics, said Chauvet, the clinic's founder.

The capital investment includes a two-station Zeiss NC1 neurosurgical operating scope designed for advanced neurosurgery. The microscope is commonly found in human medical operating rooms, she said. Veterinary neurologist Chauvet also has added an Esaote MyLab40 ultrasound machine for imagery that gives greater detail of organs. The ultrasound also has advanced cardiac functions. A Vyasis Viking Quest electrodiagnostic machine will allow testing of muscle and nerve disorders as well as evaluations of hearing, spinal cord and brain function. It also is set up for monitoring during surgeries.

"The human-animal bond is a strong one, and owners are embracing the rapid advances veterinary medicine is making, which allows them to have more quality time with their pets," Chauvet said. "We have been very fortunate that our practice has done well in spite of the recession, allowing us to make these investments for our patients' benefit."

In September 2008, Chauvet invested more than $500,000 in the practice to add the only in-house veterinary MRI on Florida's southwest coast along with state-of-the-art operating equipment.
