The University of Arizona selected LDV to design and create this veterinary surgical trailer. The trailer has a surgical procedural flow: animals enter from one end into anesthesia induction/prep, surgical area in the center of the trailer and recovery in the rear. We outfitted the trailer with aluminum cabinetry and stainless steel counter tops for easy cleaning. The trailer has two banks of cages (16 in total): one in the front room and one in the rear. There are dual slide outs to maximize the available work space. The 30kW onboard generator supplies the trailer with electrical power. Aircraft tiedowns are included in the floor to secure the surgical tables during transport.
Additional features include a 5 ton wall mounted HVAC system for appropriate cooling in Arizona's climate. The trailer accommodates 15 staff members and up to 16 animals. There is ambient and surgical lighting inside as well. The front room also has a stainless steel sink for two staff members with knee-activated water control. The rear room houses an electric pneumatic wheelchair lift for accessibility in the lavatory. The lavatory has an electric flush toilet, sink and aluminum storage cabinet.
Entry into the trailer is via dual stowable stair assemblies. Each stair assembly has stainless steel handrail for safety.
