This list was prepared by veterinarian Dr. Eric Dunayer, and it has been updated by Hakol Chai's veterinarian, Sarah Levine, VMD.


Perhaps your local vet would be willing to donate one or more items on the list. If you wish to purchase any of these items directly from a surgical supply house and contribute them, please call us first. It is possible that we can get some of these supplies discounted or second hand at a lower cost.
