The AICU was designed, veterinary tested, and proven by Hannis L. Stoddard, D.V.M. This AICU is very versatile and can be used for handfeeding babies, pediatrics and orphaned or abandoned animals. The AICU provides quality care for pets that are injured, ill or convalescing. 

The heating console is easily removed to allow the main cabinet to be submerged for total cleaning and disinfection. Large top door and sliding front door allow easy access. Humidity is maintained by adjustable vents and a water tray, housed in a separate compartment with an electrostatic filtering system. The temperature can be maintained between ambient and 100° F. 

There are now two types of cabinets available. The original lightweight and durable cabinet is manufactured from the finest acrylic and offers excellent visibility from all sides and the top. The newer metal cabinet has aluminum walls and top with acrylic sliding doors. This extra durable model offers less visibility but more privacy for the occupant.
