The Vetario S50 Advance Series II is a multi-purpose small animal Intensive Care Unit/bird brooder, providing the warmth and isolation essential for the critical care needs for a variety of young, sick, injured or weak animals and birds. With an effective volume of 100 litres, it can accommodate a small dog or queen and her litter. Vetario intensive care units are ideally suited to veterinary practices where quick set-up and ease of cleaning are key benefits.

Tough, easy to clean, temperature controlled intensive care unit with advanced features for user convenience and enhanced patient recovery. Incorporating temperature and power alarms and the ability to administer medication via the nebuliser facility. Advance models feature interior light, humidity readout and variable fan speed for minimum patient stress. Robust, reliable, easy to use and can be quickly set up for emergency cases. Suitable for rodents, birds, kittens and puppies, it is also large enough to accommodate a small dog or queen and her litter. Examples of use include a warm and safe recovery unit for sick/injured animals, a quiet and warm environment for neonates and animals during perioperative care and patients needing nebulisation for respiratory conditions.

With accurate and calibrated digital temperature control, the Vetario S50 Advance Series II gives the user precise and accurate temperature control that can be adjusted at the push of a button. The digital control system shows temperature in either °C or °F and includes dual adjustable alarms to warn of variations of temperature inside and outside the cabinet beyond user-set thresholds. Simply alter the temperature in 0.1°C increments by using the digital controls to adjust between room temperature and 38°C. The digital controller guards against accidental temperature adjustment.

Airflow in the Vetario S50 Advance Series II has been carefully optimised to ensure consistent distribution of heat, so that all animals are at the same temperature but with the fan maintaining gentle air speeds with positive pressure so that down, fluff and dust are not blown around. The Advance model features variable fan speed for particularly stress-sensitive animals. A twin stage air filter ensures that harmful bacteria and fungal spores are effortlessly removed from the brooding chamber; air is gently circulated by an internal fan in a way that minimises airborne dust.

Warm air can result in dehydration so the Vetario S50 Advance has a water reservoir over which air is circulated to increase humidity within the chamber. The water reservoir is filled from outside the unit and is clear, allowing the user to monitor the water level. The Series II models can reach higher humidity levels and an adjustable vent is fitted to the door which may be opened or closed to give greater control of humidity and fresh air flow. The Advance model also features a digital humidity display to enable the user to monitor humidity more effectively.

This model features a nebuliser solution holder which allows medication to be conveniently administered to the patient when connected to your nebuliser pump. Observation of patients is aided by a switchable internal light which safely illuminates the chamber interior.

With hygiene a top priority, the Vetario S50 Advance Series II has been carefully designed to make cleaning as easy as possible.  The smooth, easy-to-clean interior has no vulnerable edges for animals to chew. The whole unit can be easily disassembled for easy and effective cleaning. To reduce the risk of infection Polygiene Biomaster™ Antimicrobial Protection is embedded within the incubator cabinet plastic during manufacture which prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.

Each Vetario S40 Eco & Advance Series II, S50 Eco & Advance Series II, T40M and T50M is fitted with a water reservoir which humidifies air as it is drawn into the heater enclosure. Use a solution of Brinsea Disinfectant (1 part concentrate to 100 parts water) in the water reservoir (pan) to inhibit bacterial build-up. It is recommended that the reservoir is topped up with solution daily to reduce dehydration. The evaporating block and filters can be carefully washed by hand but they do need changing regularly
