This is an infusion pump!
If your pet needs to go on a drip, we use an infusion pump to regulate how much fluid goes into your pet - this one is set at '20' ie 20mls an hour is being given to the patient.
It's important not to give too much fluid (which can be very dangerous) or too little (which won't help them!). We calculate how much to give - which varies depending on things like bodyweight and how ill/dehydrated it is.
