One of the more recent additions to our growing product offering is that of our custom padding solutions, designed specifically for animal hospitals, farms and veterinary clinics. With our team of designers and full-service padding manufacturing capabilities, this became a natural pivot to our business, providing animal health facilities with a wide array of custom padding solutions to fit their unique needs.
Our most recent project was commissioned by the Lloydminster Animal Hospital in Lloydminster, Alberta. Specializing in companion and food-production animal species, this animal hospital offers a range of services to its diverse clientele, including: diagnostic modalities including in-hospital laboratory, digital x-rays, ultrasound, and fiber optic endoscopy.
The hospital was looking for customized padding for their post-surgery recovery stalls used to house horses. While circumstances differ with each patient, horses are in need of proper padding and stall comfort, particularly after the use of any anesthesia as the recovery stage can be a potentially dangerous time for large animals in particular.
As well as comfortable footing and bedding, this padding is used to protect the animal from potential falls or bumps into structures such as walls and doors. The durable construction of this padding, much the same as that used in schools and health and fitness facilities, is very easy to clean and disinfect after each use, keeping future patients safe from any existing bacteria.
We used our standard permanent wall padding for this project, covering it using our heavy-duty 18.5oz. vinyl, given the large size of animals such as horses, etc. The padding was designed to completely secure the inside of the recovery stall and included custom cut-outs for windows, doors, electrical outlets and light switches.
If your veterinary practice, farm or animal shelter might be in need of customized padding for the safety of your animals or livestock, we provide a number of other custom solutions such as table and surgery padding, kick pads, trailer padding and so much more.
