It was with great pleasure that we were able to deliver our retired anaesthetic and humidicrib equipment to the Werribee Open Range Zoo this morning. The Werribee staff were very grateful for the gift from CDH, although declined our CEO’s request as to whether they had a spare giraffe to take back to Cohuna. 😊Our thanks to the CDH staff and the community that helped support us in equipment appeals, maintaining our equipment to such high standards and facilitating transport. Whilst medical technology and training changes over time, our communities generosity in supporting us to maintain state of the art equipment is greatly appreciated and a constant support of our service. It was fantastic to help pay that kindness forward in this way in re- purposing this equipment and giving it a new home in providing essential care to our furry and feathered friends. ...
