CVA donation

Anaesthetic machine donated to the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka

The CVA is delighted to have helped send a donated anaesthetic machine to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka.

The anaesthetic machine was donated by Dr Chris Yeates of Queensland, Australia who also donated a number of books to the CVA book program.

Dr Niranjala de Silva of the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at the University stated “This is indeed welcome news as the one and only anaesthetic machine that we have in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital is out of commission at present. A donation of the same will fulfil our immediate needs, especially training students in inhalation anaesthesia.”

We are sure the anaesthetic machine will be very well used there for the benefit of the next generation of Sri Lankan Veterinarians.

The donation of veterinary equipment from the more affluent countries of the commonwealth is something that the CVA would like to encourage and expand.
