"The Vet-Dop technology is so easy to use and represents an essential piece of equipment that every practice should have."  Larry Tilley, DVM, Diplomate, ACVIM (Internal Medicine).
 
Vmed Vet-Dop Blood Pressure System

The Vet-Dop is designed for veterinarians to screen for hypertension, to check blood pressure in surgery, to monitor peripheral profusion in surgery and to check for intact blood vessels after trauma and before amputation. The non-invasive Doppler technique is the method of choice for measuring blood pressure in animals weighing less than 15 pounds, especially cats. The Vet-Dop also works well on larger breeds and can detect blood flow at the base of the tail in horses.   The Vet-Dop is the Doppler of choice and preferred by experts in the field of veterinary blood pressure measurement.

The Vet-Dop has a high quality built-in speaker to clearly hear blood flow.  Stereo audio headphones that by-pass the speaker are included since speaker sounds may startle the animal. The Vet-Dop includes a sensitive 9.4 MHz., focused transducer that can be held in place with the finger or thumb while steadying the limb with the same hand, or may be secured to the limb using one of the Velcro straps provided A pressure pump and gauge (sphygmomanometer), stereo audio headphones, a set of five cuffs, instructions and a 19 minute procedural video are included with each Vet-Dop.  The cuff set includes the following sizes, measured length by width in cm:  25 x 6, 21 x 5, 17 x 4, 14 x 3, and 11 x 2.5. These sizes cover the range from small cats to large dogs.
