About

Chris and LizzieCVUES owner/operator Christine Devlin has been a registered diagnostic sonographer since 1986, with credentials in General, Cardiac and Vascular Ultrasound from the registry of diagnostic sonographers in Canada: Sonography Canada.

Lizzy and ChrisAfter almost 20 years of working in human hospitals and clinics, she began teaching ultrasound to veterinarians with Sound Technologies, a U.S. distributor for GE Healthcare (Ultrasound). In 2007 she launched her private veterinary ultrasound practice, CVUES, and created the Canadian version of Sound’s education with VetNovations (now Scil). While facilitating more than 30 continuing education courses and installing countless GE U/S machines in veterinary clinics for Vet Novations across Canada, she has built CVUES into the number one mobile ultrasound service for small animal veterinarians in Greater Victoria and the surrounding communities.

In February of 2012, CVUES was incorporated as C.V.U.E.S. Services Ltd., and is striving to improve the availability and affordability of ultrasound for all pet owners.

We have been fortunate to have Chris Devlin available to perform our ultrasounds for the past 5 years. I feel that she has greatly enhanced the service that we are able to provide our clients. Her skills as an ultrasonographer meet or excede even the specialist options that were previously available on Vancouver Island, and she has a keen focus on Continuing Education and keeping herself and her equipment up to date and accurate. Because of the affordability of her service, we are also able to perform ultrasounds on patients that would have previously been limited for financial reasons. I also greatly appreciate the effort she makes to be available on a timely basis for urgent cases.

Altogether, I feel very fortunate that Chris is available to us, and can recommend her without hesitation.

McKenzie Veterinary Services had been using the services of CVUES since 2004 when Chris Devlin installed and taught us about our GE Logiqbook. I and some of my staff have attended courses and had onsite training led by Chris and her associates, and I can say without hesitation that their knowledge and skills are second to none!

With CVUES and the mobile ultrasound service, we can get a quick idea of what’s going on with an animal, and sometimes, it can be something totally unexpected.

In short, we’re doing a better job of taking care of our customers and their pets. That’s good medicine and good business!

Dr. Malcom Macartney, BSc, DVM McKenzie Veterinary Services
We started using CVUES services for our ultrasound studies only about 2 years ago, but since then it’s been full steam ahead! She’s available virtually at a moment’s notice for our emergencies, and when we have a difficult case, we have the additional help of the specialist, Dr. Laura Crews, to read and interpret the ultrasound images, and give us some idea of where to go next.

It’s so easy for our clients to just bring their pet in to the clinic; sometimes we can start managing the problem right away without waiting days for a result. With CVUES prices we can make it affordable to the client as well.

We are very happy to be working with Christine. It makes my job a little easier.
