Available Ventilators

The American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC) has created an online form to collect information of veterinary hospitals with available ventilators that could be used by human hospitals if needed due to COVID-19. Please use the link below to list equipment you would be willing to offer to load.

The MVTA and the MVMA have both sent emails urging Governor Baker and his team to include veterinary hospitals and members of the veterinary health care team as essential in the event a state of emergency shelter in place order is declared. The AVMA and NAVTA have both issued press releases on this important topic. The links to each of these documents are listed below.
