Shor-Line has been a part of the animal health industry since the company's founding in 1927. In the early years, Shor-Line's involvement related mainly to large animal applications. Back then the local vet took care of your livestock, but your dog took care of itself. As the country became more urban and affluent, societal attitudes toward pets matured. What followed was a growing demand for advanced medical care for companion animals. This movement has manifested into the migration of various human treatments, technologies and "luxuries" into animal care. Cancer therapies, digital imaging and fully furnished suites for animal boarding are common in veterinary practices today. A developing area in which Shor-Line has become particularly interested is animal rehabilitation. Treadmills, therapeutic lasers and ultrasound are used today for these purposes. This area will be the focus of Donahue's remarks.
