Lift and transport sick and injured cattle in 10 minutes, its welfare is yours in any cases.
Currently, there are some techniques for lifting up and re-education of heavy animals.
Those techniques are sometimes:
difficulties for settings;
In our societies, animal welfare is getting more and more important. Using such a device is an advantage, thanks to air-cow cattle can stain physiological situation with real comfort the required time for re-education and healing.
In bovine médecine, there are a lot of cases which for air-cow can become useful. The air-cow allows best optimizations of care:
Hypocalcemia around calving / milk fever / hypophatemia
These deficiencies generally prevent cows from rising or increase risks of falling. One of the interest of the air-cow is putting the cow in safety situation to receive the necessary veterinary care.
Then you can avoid complications caused by repeated falls as well as worsening injuries caused by unsuccessful lifting attempts and pain.
Air-cow allows to cancel numbness that is one of the most complicating element of the lying situation.
Sciatica syndrome / traumatically calving
Calving involves a lot of complications, one of the most frequent is the lack of space in the pelvis.
The inflammation of the genital tract and pelvis nerves causes paralysis of the hind legs which may last for several days.
Air-cow allows to put the cow in physiological standing the required time for recovery.
After serious mastitis or metritis, cows can live extreme stress and high fever. The animal stops eating and drinking. Blood potassium decreases which causes a lay down of the cow and disability for lifting up.
Even if we can cure the first disease with blood perfusion, antibiotics and inflammatory drugs, complications that appear are often fatal. ( anorexia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, hypophosphatemia, bedsores, wounds,...)
The air-cow is actually useful for optimizing expensive care, it makes it possible to limit consequences of prolonged lying position and increases the chances of complete recovery.
In case of successful treatment of the first pathology.
In veterinary practice we often meet such cases, cow lying with serious mastitis. Usually we succeed to cure mastitis but a few days later we euthanize the cow because it can no longer get up.
Some fractures are unfortunately impossible to cure with plaster or splint.
Air-cow allows to place the animal in a physiological position for the necessary time for bone healing.
NB: we prototype made for animals that weigh 100-150 kg thanks to we succeeded for healing pelvis and femoral fracture in calves.
Welfare for transporting injured animals
Transport of injured animals, unable for lifting up and moving is usually a problem. Until now it was realized without any specific device.
The animal is pulled and lifted by means not proved for this kind of operation. It is often traumatic even if it is involuntary. Using the air-cow in these particular cases allows us to considerably decrease stress injuries caused by this kind of situation.
