The Village Veterinary Clinic, Douglas, Cork

We have been using Pet Scan services since it’s inception and the service has surpassed our expectation on every occasion.  Pet Scan provides us with a comprehensive ultrasound service which has proved to be an invaluable tool in practice. Gemma is extremely accommodating and facilitates us with same day appointments when necessary. The standard of imaging and reporting is excellent and Gemma’s attention to detail and follow through makes for a highly professional scanning service which we are very pleased to have at our disposal.

Gemma provides a referral service at our Carrigaline, Kinsale, and Bandon branches in cardiology, feline and canine medicine and ultrasonography. She has simply brought our clinical diagnosis to a new level and we are very appreciative of her work and commitment.

The Animal Care Hospital, Douglas has been using Petscan’s service for over a year now at our Hospital on both first opinion and referral cases.  We find Gemma’s approach very professional and thorough. She takes time over each case and is willing to share her extensive experience and expertise in order to provide the best outcome for the patient. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gemma and the service she provides.

Gemma O’Donoghue of Petscan has been providing ultrasound and cardiology services to my practice for the last 2 years.
She has expertise in cardiology, medicine, and imaging with a special interest in cats which is a great bonus to us. Gemma’s extra studies means that she can offer a really comprehensive service to practices, including medical and therapeutic advice for more complex cases.

Gemma has helped us with some of our most challenging patients and our clinical outcomes have improved since Gemma has started supporting us with her services.
We are delighted with the level of expertise and service we can provide to our own clients in our own hospital.  Gemma arrives with her equipment and assesses our patients thoroughly, quickly and efficiently.
Her flexibility and value for money mean we can offer an in house service to our clients that would otherwise be out of reach for a small practice.
After assessing each animal Gemma gives the attending Vet a verbal report and outline recommendations to pass on to the clients that day and promptly provides a detailed report with images and measurements.  These comprehensive reports are passed on to the client.  Gemma is happy to perform fine needle aspiration and ultrasound guided biopsies with appropriate support from the practice in relation to sedation and general anaesthesia.

Gemma’s willingness to perform fine needle aspirates and ultrasound guided biopsy allows her to make a full diagnosis on complex cases in a very short period of time.

Our clients are very impressed with Gemma’s service via The Cat Hospital.  It has enhanced our own offering and has improved our client relations thanks to an efficient, convenient and flexible increase in services within our own hospital.  Petscan represents excellent value for money and provides Vets with clinical and diagnostic support that would otherwise be outside the budget for most practices.  We feel very lucky that Petscan is based here in Cork so our clients can continue to benefit from Gemma O Donoghue’s support and knowledge in managing the health and wellbeing of their cats.
