DENVER, Oct. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading Edge Veterinary Equipment, an exclusive international supplier of new veterinary medical equipment, joins forces with Butler Schein™ Animal Health - the U.S. Animal Health division of Henry Schein (NASDAQ: HSIC) to donate a complete surgical suite of veterinary equipment to the Big Dog Ranch Rescue, a unique no-kill dog rescue situated on 28 acres in Wellington, Florida. The Ranch was chosen by Designing Spaces, a Lifetime TV makeover show, as part of their "Spaces of Hope" series. The episode, which will air today, October 19, & December 27 at 7:30 a.m. ET/ 4:30 a.m. PT will focus on renovations to the Ranch's veterinary clinic and surgical suite.
The veterinary surgery equipment provided by Leading Edge allows the Veterinarian to perform comprehensive surgical procedures on-site. Previously, the Ranch had to transport animals to other facilities. With Leading Edge veterinary technology, the Ranch is now able to provide complete patient care and recovery, reducing clinical risk and stress for each dog.
"We are honored to work with Butler Schein Animal Health and Designing Spaces to provide this critical surgical equipment to the Big Dog Ranch Rescue," says Drew Blackstone, CEO of Leading Edge Veterinary Equipment. "It's both humbling and makes us feel good to know that the equipment donated will help save the lives of thousands of dogs in the years to come."
In addition to providing the complete surgical suite of equipment, Leading Edge's Clinical Engineer installed the new veterinarian equipment and trained the Big Dog Ranch Rescue's veterinarian and technicians on use and maintenance of the equipment.
