Air-cow

Why?

In classical veterinary practice, it is usual to meet pathologies that cause partial or complete disabilities for displacement or statement.
In that case, the animal weight can become a problem:
  • tiresome, difficulties for standing;
  • water stop, feeding stop;
  • metabolic deficit;
  • weakness, bedsores, muscle crush syndrome.
Often the first pathology is neat but complications that appear after stilling lying down for a long time are causing the death of the animal.
The air-cow permits to limit complications arising from locomotor disabilities and increases the chances of recovery in the best conditions of animal welfare.
