11pm ...15 pound dog high on amphetamines ... IV fluids required ... inside the cage is a never ending blur of spinning, spinning, spinning, spinning, spinning ... for six hours
Thank you, Flex Coil! Because we used the Flex-coil® Swivel System we didn't have to replace the IV line - not even one time. Not once and this dog was literally spinning at top speed for six hours! We were amazed! With a standard IV line we would have had to replace the line so many times I'm sure we would have run out of lines (and tolerance for this poor cute dog). This was our first experience with the Flex Coil System and the next day we ordered several more set-ups.
Fear the spinner no more!
