We apologize for the inconvenience.





 The Vet-Dop2 is designed for veterinarians to screen for hypertension, to check blood pressure in surgery, to monitor blood flow at the extremities during 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. Other methods, including monitors that use the oscillometric technique with small animal validated software may not calculate pressures as quickly especially on awake, smaller patients. The Vet-Dop2 also works well on larger breeds and can detect blood flow at the base of the tail in horses. The Vet-Dop2 is the Doppler of choice and preferred by experts in the field of veterinary blood pressure measurement.
   The Vet-Dop2 uses a rechargeable Li-ion battery good for approximately 40 hours between charges. Low noise electronics provides clear blood flow audio through the built-in speaker. Stereo audio headphones that by-pass the speaker are included since speaker sounds may startle the animal. The Vet-Dop2 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 six cuffs, instructions and a 19 minute procedural video are included with each Vet-Dop2. Six cuffs cover limb circumferences from 3.3 to 16.8 cm. This range includes animals from small kittens to large dogs.
   In a recent study, 61% of cats and 93% of dogs with chronic renal failure also had systemic hypertension. Also, 87% of cats with untreated hyperthyroidism had systemic hypertension. Cushing diseased dogs should be checked for hypertension. All geriatric pets should also be routinely checked for hypertension. “It is almost mandatory that every veterinary practice have the capabilities for blood pressure screening and monitoring. The Doppler is the preferred instrument for obtaining non-invasive, accurate consistent systolic readings in awake dogs and cats.
