New laser technology introduced to UCVM with help from Equine Foundation of Canada
By Gloria Visser-Niven
The University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UCVM) now has a state-of-the-art surgical laser thanks to a generous gift of $20,000 from the Equine Foundation of Canada (EFC), which contributed to the overall costs of the technology.
The Dornier Diode Laser was unveiled in early March to a group of UCVM clinicians, veterinarians from the Distributed Veterinary Teaching Hospital (DVTH) and members of the Equine Foundation of Canada executive.
“It is very gratifying to see how the money that was provided to the college is spent to help the welfare of horses and learning for veterinarians,” said Eldon Bienert, President, Equine Foundation of Canada.
