Many veterinary surgeries store medicines and vaccinations in normal fridges, but this can impact on the effectiveness of the products because normal commercial fridges do not properly regulate the temperature. Purchasing a temperature- controlled fridge may be a larger initial cost, but the investment can save surgeries a considerable amount of valuable budget money over the lifetime of the fridge.

Veterinary surgeries often cater for the emergency medical treatment of sick animals, which is why vaccinations and medicines should be kept in a secure, temperature-controlled environment. When an animal is in pain and needs urgent medical treatment, the local veterinary practice needs to be ready with a wide variety of medical products to cope with whatever that emergency may be.

At CoolMed, we understand that some surgeries are bigger than others, which is why we offer a range of fridges, from small under-counter medical fridges to large stand-alone units. The wide range of sizes means that veterinary surgery can easily keep a range of temperature-critical products in a stable condition at one time, thereby ensuring that all its patients can be treated without delay.

All of the temperature-controlled refrigeration units are manufactured by experts and come with a 5-year warranty. CoolMed understands the importance of these products and therefore they are available with next day delivery if required, plus our delivery team will remove the obsolete refrigeration unit for a small fee if necessary.

Each fridge is available with a solid or glass door and comes with a metal interior and back panel to improve fire ratings. Browse the full range of products and buy your veterinary surgery fridge today.

Why veterinary practitioners must use a medical fridge: 

Veterinary practices are required to store vaccines in dedicated medical refrigerators to ensure that medicines are kept in the best possible condition and are safe to use.

Veterinary medical refrigerators have been designed to store vaccines and medicines between specific temperature ranges and come with additional features such as alarms and locks.

Most medicines and vaccines used by veterinary practitioners must be stored between +2°C to +8°C and only a dedicated medical fridge can provide this level of accuracy.

Ultimately, veterinary practitioners must ensure that the medicines and vaccines they administer are in top condition and the only way this can be done is by using a dedicated medical fridge.
