An IV and Bandaging training model all in one.
Veterinary students are able to practise finding the cephalic vein in a controlled environment for intravenous therapy or blood sampling with clear assessment and feedback from the tutor.
Blood circulates from the Holsim Blood Pump through the vein tubing, where the student can then attempt to identify the cephalic vein and withdraw blood or administer the required fluids or drugs.
The leg can also be used for teaching bandaging methods, especially as the toes of the dog leg can be spread to wrap the bandage between.

Forelimb Canine Bandaging & IV Kit
- Bone and vein positioning have been replicated from real canine anatomy.
- Blood is circulated through the leg by a small electronic pump to simulate the heart pumping.
- When inserting the needle, a realistic resistance is felt under the skin.
- When pressure is applied, the vein bulges for students to see where to insert the needle.
- Toes can be spread for bandaging purposes between digits.
