Vet Rocket X1 saved another injured Hawaiian Monk Seal

The Vet Rocket Xray was instrumental in quickly making the diagnosis of an ingested hook that lead to the emergency surgery. Radiographing Benny was a huge test for the Vet Rocket and the battery powered generator because of his size. As you can see from the news article, the radiographs were beautiful.

Benny is recovering well and will be release soon.
Thank you for your support in saving another monk seal.”
