Help for Canada’s wild birds

By March 10, 2016In the community

Cedarview Animal Hospital recently upgraded our digital x-ray equipment to allow for improved speed and processing of capturing radiographs. This permits the patients to get in and out faster, and if sedated, to wake up faster. Our staff love the equipment: less time in the dark!

We are pleased to donate our five-year-old digital equipment that was replaced to a very worthy organization in Hudson, Quebec. Le Nichoir (French for the Nest) is Canada’s largest wild bird rehabilitation for songbirds and are celebrating their twentieth year in operation. Today, Le Nichoir admits more than 1400 wild birds and receives over 5000 telephone calls a year.

The radiographic equipment will permit the centre to provide care in their new facility, currently under construction, to add to their diagnostic tools in managing and treating the birds.
