Isolation Facilities at HLA

A free standing isolation unit providing six independent stalls with dedicated treatment space allows the Hospital for Large animals at Cummings Veterinary Medical Center at Tufts to ensure unparalleled biosecurity and containment of infectious diseases of the large animal. Full diagnostic capabilities and intensive care are provided for patients with infectious gastrointestinal (salmonella, rotavirus, Clostridia, BVD), respiratory (strangles) and neurologic diseases (equine herpes virus). Two stalls are equipped with two-ton hoists for the recumbent patient that requires sling support.
