SodiumVET Hosts SMVMA Veterinary Meeting

SodiumVET Hosts SMVMA Veterinary Meeting

This year SodiumVET had the pleasure of hosting the Southern Michigan Veterinary Medical Association Meeting, held at Main Street Stable and Tavern in Southern Michigan. With an outstanding turnout of 30+ doctors and assistants, we were able to talk to the veterinarians personally, get to know their practice and find solutions that work best for them. This event was an amazing opportunity to get to know our veterinarians here in Michigan as well as introduce the digital x-ray industry to those who are less familiar. We firmly believe the digital x-ray sensor is an essential tool in every practice and were happy to discussed the importance of implementing x-ray sensors in their own practice for the specialty of animal dentistry.

The topic of the night was Veterinary Dentistry with Dr. Jamie Berning as the speaker. Dr. Berning graduated in 2011 from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine with a strong passion for dentistry and oral surgery. With a lack of formal dental training in veterinary education, Dr. Berning works to teach veterinarians and students, as well as educate veterinarians on the importance of digital dental radiography within their practice. Dr. Berning in fact uses our digital x-ray sensor, VetDR, in all of her procedures.

Throughout the evening, the veterinarians learned more about dental radiographs and were taught how to interpret radiographs for themselves. The veterinarians were also taught to identify normal versus abnormal pathology for common conditions in dogs and cats. This was a highlight of the night because many of the veterinarians found these learning exercise very engaging and were thrilled to further strengthen their knowledge of interpreting radiographs. Those in attendance found the lecture to be very educational, giving them the ability to better diagnose their patients.

We were also able to talk to veterinarians about our digital x-ray sensor, VetDR. Many of the veterinarians were interested in how VetDR differs from other dental digital x-Ray sensors in veterinary medicine. We were able to confidently inform them on its top tier image quality, high speed image response, VetReady durability and its incredible sensor care plan. The doctors were not only wowed, but convinced in the importance of having a digital x-ray sensor like VetDR in their practice.

A large portion of veterinary medicine is the use of digital x-ray sensors to obtain dental radiographs. Taking dental radiographs in a veterinarian clinic can be used to treat fractured teeth, facial swelling, oral masses, periodontal pockets, maxillofacial trauma, drooling, pre and post-extraction, evaluate missing teeth and so much more. Too many dental procedures are performed on animals without the proper understanding of where the real problem lies. Dental radiographs revealed clinically important findings, and without them numerous unseen problems will go untreated or improperly treated.

We were thrilled to be in attendance. The doctors and ourselves learned so much more about veterinary dentistry and the importance of dental digital x-ray sensors in every veterinary practice. At the end of the night, the veterinarians in attendance found that digital x-ray sensors are absolutely essential for veterinary medicine.

Veterinary Dental X-Rays Are Necessary For Every Clinic

Veterinary Dental X-Rays

You can not diagnose and treat what you can not see. The importance of incorporating dental X-Rays into your clinic is being shown in many family pets that are not getting the diagnoses and care they need because of the many oral problems going undiagnosed.

Pet owners are paying a great deal of money to purchase and take care of their animals. What most veterinarian’s don’t understand is that their clients want options and knowledge about their pets health. To many pet owners a reasonably priced set of xrays is useful spending especially when it so often leads to diagnosing care that greatly benefits the happiness and health of their pets.


We highly suggest incorporating SodiumVet’s VetDR sensor and our imaging software into your clinic. We can help you understand how to incorporate the Xrays into your normal care routine for all of your new clinic patients. This can be both a productive benefit to your practice and a huge benefit to your patients.


SodiumVet gets ready for any situation with CPR and First Aid Training

SodiumVet gets ready for any situation

The SodiumVet staff here at Sodium Systems firmly believes that we need to do everything we can to be able to help in any possible situation.

Our staff are now American Heart Association CPR, AED, First Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogens Trained. This gives us tools to help our co-workers, our friends, loved ones and strangers on the street survive an emergency situation with the best odds of recovery.

Our training was performed by our very own Joe Jelasic, an AHA Licensed BLS Instructor. We are very proud to have this level of knowledge and expertise in our office and would be happy to provide this training on site to you and your staff.

Providing the best possible diagnostic imaging for veterinary dental care is our mission, but having the tools to help save another person’s life and give the best aid possible should be everyone’s mission.

As one of the owners of Sodium Systems, I personally feel that going through this training with my staff was an important use of our time. I now feel that I personally can perform very high level CPR as well as recognize and respond to many other emergent needs such as stroke, heart attack, choking, broken bones, lacerations and more. It costs time and money to do a training and make sure you have the right medical kit on site for most situations, but if you don’t take these steps to prepare, the personal cost to you could be much greater. I value all of my staff and find that they are almost like family to me.If they need urgent medical assistance, my CPR and first aid training is going to give me the tools to make sure they have the best possible outcome.
