Veterinary Infusion Pumps

This is a piece of equipment that is truly invaluable to any veterinary practise.
Pumps are used whenever an animal is being given an I.V fluid or drug that needs to be given at a set rate over a given period of time. They can infuse as little as 0.1ml per hour or  give fluids at 2 minute intervals over a given period.They are battery and mains operated.They can easily be attached to a drip pole and provide a superb level of safety while giving i.v. fluids as animals cannot be over or under dosed.

Used to safely administer:
I.V. antibiotics
Supplemented infusions
Pumps can also be used with blood products or for specialised i.v. feeding.
Large volumes over a short period or small volumes over a long period.

The illustrated unit can be used with most common makes of giving set and  syringe e.g. Becton Dickinson,B Braun,Jelco etc.

Vetequip Ltd

  in conjunction 


           Abbeyville Veterinary Hospital

Invite Veterinary surgeons to a
Practical Bovine Ultrasonography Training Workshop on
Wednesday 7th November 2018.
Abbeyville Veterinary Hospital is a long established multi-vet mixed veterinary practice situated in Cork City. Most of the work is in the area of dairy and companion animal practice but suckler beef herds and equine work also make up a proportion of the business. Over the years Abbeyville has steadily built up  fertility work to a significant level and clients demand exacting standards but appreciate the service and advice.. Ultrasonography is at the heart of this fertility work and  is performed throughout the year. Many of the farmer clients set up fertility appointments at the start of the season and  tailored packages are customised  to their individual needs. Fertility and Ultrasonography, which is all performed on an appointment basis during regular working hours, has provided a new and valuable income stream to the Practice.

The Tutor
Fergus Smith MVB Cert DHH qualified from UCD in 1992. He has over 20 years experience in Large Animal practice. He has attended several ultrasonography courses delivered by international experts and has used the skills learnt at these workshops to help increase the level and quality of fertility work offered to the bovine clients of the Practice. He has run courses for farmer clients to demonstrate the benefits of veterinary involvement, including ultrasonography, in fertility improvement of their herds.

The course
This is a one day course aimed at vets new to the area of bovine ultrasonography and to vets who wish to refresh and improve their current ultrasonography skills. The course will consist of a morning of lectures followed by lunch and an afternoon of Practical demonstration on a host farm. Course participants will learn by scanning animals themselves with support and demonstration from the tutor and from Vetequip personnel. The course will be delivered at Abbeyville’s new purpose built veterinary hospital and the host farm is a modern, large progressive dairy farm with good facilities and quiet animals.
