The Anderson Sling/Veterinary Sling
The Anderson Sling and frame were developed for veterinary use to support the large skeletal structure of your horse when in need of recovery or rehabilitation. It also has a unique 4 point face mask / halter system designed to control and support the head. The animal has a remarkable tolerance and acceptance to the sling, often falling asleep during recovery and rehabilitation. This also holds true of the optional leg supports.   It is just what the doctor ordered, built to last ....and made to perform!

Some uses, by a veterinarian, would be supporting neurologically impaired animals and large animals with limb fractures that need full body support to limit weight bearing. Also weak or debilitated animals needing support during convalescence from other muscular skeletal or medical conditions during recovery.
The Anderson Sling has been successfully used in air rescue situations where the horse must be safely and effectively restrained and suspended for transport to safety.

The Anderson Sling has a range of optional components to enhance the rescue and veterinary rehabilitation of your large animal. Leg Supports, training strap and corner straps have been designed to compliment the rescue/recovery sling.      
Color coded attachment points at the frame and on the Sling create a "user friendly" apparatus for quick and easy installation for veterinary, rescue and recovery use . 

The rescue/rehabilitation sling is manufactured in large, medium, small and pony sizes to fit a large range of animals with a lightweight metal frame for correct distribution of weight.  The same frame is used for all four sizes.

What size do you need? Large - approx. 1100 lbs and up,    Medium - approx. 800 to 1100 lbs,    Small - approx 400 to 800 lbs,   Pony - medium foal to 400 lbs.
