Blue Ridge Veterinary Imaging
BRVI will x-ray hips, elbows, shoulders or just about anything you want! Progesterone testing will also be available, should you have “breeding timing needs” during Specialty week.
The planning committee is excited to have Dr. Craddock and his expert staff at our specialty. Blue Ridge Veterinary Imaging (BRVI) will be on site at the 2019 Bouvier National Specialty with their mobile imaging unit, offering important health screening at a discounted cost.
We need to have 50 dogs scheduled to cover BRVI’s cost. All Breeds are welcome. Schedule yours as soon as possible to ensure your Bouvier gets a spot.
BRVI brings the very latest digital radiography technology with the convenience of a mobile imaging unit. The staff uses fear-free techniques and puts the comfort of the dogs first by welcoming the owner/handler in the room for the imaging procedure. That increases the chance dogs won’t need sedatives or anesthesia. Conscious dogs means muscle tone is present (with less laxity in joints) giving a good picture of joint conformation.
Dr. Nathan Craddock, DVM and his staff have served the All-Breed dog community at some of the country’s biggest clusters, providing heath test imaging at 5 day all breed shows held in Louisville, Orlando, Greenville, and Atlanta. Dr. Craddock’s father is a long time Bouvier owner and so Dr. Craddock has experience with our breed. He has served the Clemson community for over 20 years at Tigertown Animal Hospital.
