Thanks to The Raptor Center’s outstanding donors, last year we were able to purchase an oxygen concentrator for our clinic. This crucial tool allows us to deliver supplemental oxygen to raptors in critical care, and we’ve seen great success with this treatment. To cater to our larger patients, one of our volunteers retrofitted a pet crate to function as an oxygen therapy chamber, so we could provide this lifesaving treatment to our eagle and osprey patients.
We frequently have more than one patient who could benefit from oxygen therapy at a given time, so we are looking to build a second specialized crate. We have the skills to put it together, but are looking for a little help purchasing the crate, monitors, and miscellaneous supplies to create a second oxygen enclosure.
