Our 52nd year!

Sportsmobile logo
 

"We spent quite some time researching our 'MobileVet.' After some discussions with several companies that specialize in mobile veterinarian conversions, we chose Sportsmobile. Reasons? They were very willing to listen to our ideas and build it to meet all of our requirements at a competitive cost. A lot of thought and work went into our plan with some help from Sportsmobile. After three months of use we would only change several minor items."

— Drs. Brad and Jamie Waltman

A larger view of floor plan is below on this page.

The cab area can serve as a mini-office with USB cable connections to the rear.

The owner can order veterinarian equipment for shipment direct to Sportsmobile for installation. Hard-top counter surfaces can be made to whatever sizes and shapes required.

There's adequate space around the exam table. Two 25-gallon tanks are located under the sink for fresh water and sink water, plus a fast-recovery 6-gallon 110V water heater. Scale slides out at floor level. A small refrigerator/freezer is located below the counter.

The Sprinter's full-height door creates a comfortable entry. Interior height is 6'2". A partition and door separates the Sprinter's cab. Rubberized Loncoin flooring covers the full floor for heavy-duty wear.

The interior is well lighted. Additional track lighting over the sink/exam table was added. Owner can also supply lighting components.

Looking from the Sprinter's rear shows the left-side cabinets and crates to the right. Bottom crate is 24 x 24 x 48. Two top crates are 24 x 24 x 24.

Here's some additional information written by Drs. Brad and Jamie Waltman.

"In the clinic, we have most of the features of a normal veterinary hospital arranged into a much smaller space. The rear area of the clinic is equipped with stainless steel cages for transportation of animals. One of these cages was designed with a clear airtight door to be used for animals needing oxygen therapy. A fully stocked diagnostic lab also resides in the rear of the vehicle complete with bloodwork machines, Doppler blood pressure, ECG, pulse oximetry, microscope, etc.

"The center area is our examination/treatment area. An exam table with running water, exam lights, refrigerator, scale, and isofluorane anesthesia machine has been installed. The area directly behind the cab consists of a fully stocked pharmacy and doctor's work area. The cab is separated from the work area by a partition door. Temperature control is maintained by a roof mounted air-conditioning and heating unit. In order to operate the A/C unit as well as the diagnostic lab and other equipment, a 6,000-watt generator has been installed. A backup power system is also in place to ensure electricity will always be available. For more information please see our website stlouismobilevet.com."
