Respirair and Dechra Confirm US Veterinary Anesthesia Partnership

The collaboration seeks to create a powerful new force in veterinary anesthesia coupled with proven, trusted and peerless quality delivery technologies.


Respirair Global is proud and excited to confirm the launch of a game-changing strategic alliance with Dechra in the USA for isoflurane and sevoflurane veterinary vaporizers and anesthesia accessories.

“Innovation and collaboration are at the heart of this partnership,” said Neil Redmayne, CEO of Respirair. “We are striving to raise the bar on quality, service, sustainability and value by bringing high-quality, affordable products, with an innovative 360° wraparound service package to the US veterinary market”.

By supplying its market leading, precision engineered vaporizers, trolleys and accessories, in conjunction with Dechra’s isoflurane and sevoflurane general inhalation anesthetic agents, the collaboration seeks to create a powerful new force in veterinary anesthesia coupled with proven, trusted and peerless quality delivery technologies.

The Respirair vaporizer comes with an industry-beating warranty of 6 years that is backed up by a Respirair Global service center. Quality, pricing and service are the keys—the Respirair vaporizer offers best-in-class thermal dynamics, a coating process that ensures a lifetime of anti-corrosion protection, thermostats that are more durable than previously available, and are all individually tested to significantly tighter tolerances than industry standard. All product variants are available in all fitting and filler options.

Mike Eldred, President of Dechra North America, stated, “We are pleased to have partnered with Respirair Global to provide veterinarians with high quality and affordable anesthesia equipment, along with our low-cost general aesthetics agents, isoflurane and sevoflurane. This partnership further strengthens our position as a leader in the veterinary surgical suite market segment.”
