“We really find a lot of value in these units, we use them every day.
We use them for c-sections, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, breathing difficulty, injuries, reviving puppies and warming.
A lot of cages you cannot see into them so every time you have to check on a patient you are letting your oxygen out. Since the ThermoCare dome is clear on the sides, you can check on the animals without opening the door.
We love these units because you don't have to drag your oxygen machine over to the cage. When you have one of these it's ready to go, you put the animal in and your turn your oxygen on and you are done.
We keep our units on carts so that we can wheel them around. At 2:00 am there is only one vet and one technician here. Since we have oxygen outlets everywhere, we can just wheel them to the room where the staff is so that they can keep an eye on them.
If we have a small kitten or animal, we raise up the height of the bedding so that from across the room we can just look over and see them to check on them.
Also, if a patient is oxygen dependent, the owners can come and visit with them since we can move the units around. They impress the clients when they see them!
Thank you ThermoCare!”
