We offer professional animal capture and treatment equipment for use in zoos and animal shelters. A zoo (short for the zoological garden, also called an animal park or menagerie) is a facility in which animals are housed within enclosures, cared for, displayed to the public, and in some cases bred for conservation purposes.

Animal handling within a zoo facilitates a huge proportion of good husbandry practices and is thus an essential element of zookeeper competency. Many training, medical, enrichment and movement procedures require good practical animal handling skills. In order to assist breeding programs and best care, animal transporting is often necessary and zookeepers are integral in these activities. Zookeepers need to handle animals in a way that minimises risk to both themselves and their animals, and the modern zookeeper should possess a full range of skills, attitudes and zoo equipment to ensure handling and transport procedures are appropriate and effective.
In order to work as effective employees and uphold a professional reputation of a zoo, it is important that zookeepers are able to manage themselves and their resources effectively. In particular, they should be able to put to use equipment that will ensure their protection and the effectiveness of their work.
