Embracing New Technology
The livestock industry changes quickly, and these changes often bring unique disease challenges. While it is impossible to predict what each new day will bring, the VMC team is dedicated to keeping producers "ahead of the curve" by utilizing cutting-edge tools for diagnostics and disease prevention. Technologies and innovative practice techniques improve the level of animal care offered by the VMC and set them apart from their counterparts.
The use of molecular biology techniques such as gene sequencing and DNA fingerprinting save valuable time in diagnosing complex problems. By genetically selecting specific virus strains, the VMC team can create Pinpoint (autogenous) vaccines specifically targeted to the issues facing an operation. They also utilize such tools as ultrasound pregnancy detection, state-of-the-art surgery equipment, diagnostic sample collection, post-mortem techniques, and digital photography to build complete case histories.
