Have you heard of National Frog Month?

Well, National Frog Month is observed in April and is the month dedicated to these cute amphibians, the frogs. Unlike other animals, not all of us love frogs obviously with their look, appearance, and especially the croak-croak sound. Frogs are amphibian creatures found both on land and water. They are found to be predators and are playing a vital role in maintaining the environment throughout its lifetime. They have been valued as food by humans, and also have many cultural roles including literature, symbolism, and religion. But in recent years, frogs have been threatened with extinction for numerous reasons. There were approximately about 6,000 known species of frog found of which 4,800 recorded frog types were found worldwide except Antarctica. But in the past decade, approximately 170 species of frogs have become extinct. People and various organizations are using this awareness Month to focus on the universal decline in the population in locations across the world. We can also choose to celebrate them because they represent a symbol of transition, the leap from one thing, place, situation to another. Regardless of your reasons, keep in mind that these little creatures also on occasion need x-rays and when they do, Z&Z Medical has a vast array of positioning accessories and markers to assist you in your imaging needs.  Visit the Veterinary section of our website to learn more.

Feb 1 is National Serpent Day

National Serpent Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the fascinating and diverse group of animals known as snakes. These creatures, which belong to the class of reptiles known as Serpentes, are found all over the world and come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors. Some species are venomous, while others are non-venomous, but all are adapted to living in a variety of different environments and have unique characteristics that make them an important part of the ecosystem.

One way that people can celebrate National Serpent Day is by learning more about these amazing animals. This can be done through reading books, watching documentaries, or visiting a local reptile exhibit. 

As a veterinarian, you know that proper diagnostic tools are crucial in ensuring the best possible care for your patients. X-ray imaging, or radiography, is an essential tool in the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions in reptiles, including snakes. At Z&Z Medical, we understand the unique needs of veterinarians working with reptiles. One of the main benefits of x-ray imaging in the care of snakes is the ability to visualize the internal structures of the body without the need for invasive procedures. This allows for a quick and accurate diagnosis of conditions such as fractures, tumors, and foreign bodies, as well as monitoring the progression of treatment.

If you are a veterinarian working with reptiles and are in need of x-ray imaging equipment, accessories or supplies we encourage you to contact us to learn more about how we can support you in providing the best possible care for your patients.

November is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month

Both traditional and special contrast X-ray techniques are used to look for tumors in a pet's lungs, gastrointestinal tract, bladder and other internal organs. X-rays are usually used as the first imaging test to evaluate a pet's condition and determine whether the cancer has spread throughout the body.  

CT is a specialized imaging technique available at referral centers or specialty hospitals. CT relies on the differences in density between tissues to form an image and the images of cross-sections of the body are generated by a computer. It is a superior technique compared to X-rays in evaluating cancer in the lung, the chest cavity and ribs, and is important for planning radiation therapy. CT scans can also be used to guide biopsies when a suspected mass needs further analysis.

Ultrasound refers to a technique used to examine internal organs in the abdomen and to also help guide biopsys. The veterinarian places a transducer emitting sound waves in contact with the area of interest (e.g. stomach), moves it around and views the structure of internal organs on a monitor in real time. It is routinely used to evaluate masses discovered during physical examination or to check for metastasis to liver, spleen or other organs. It is generally not used to evaluate structures that contain air such as the lungs since air prevents the transfer of sound waves.    

MRI uses strong magnetic fields to create three-dimensional images created by a computer. MRI is extensively used to evaluate masses in the central nervous system such as the spine or brain and has been useful in providing images of soft tissues, joints, tendons, muscles and bone marrow.

Z&Z Medical understands the importance of Imaging animals and works closely with the Veterinary Field to provide a wide array of imaging accessories and supplies for both X-Ray, CT, Ultrasound and MRI for animal imaging.  Visit the Veterinary Section of our website to learn more or email
