Combining our expertise and experience in creating market-leading blood pressure solutions, we designed this automated BP monitor with an animal-specific algorithm so you can take reliable, accurate measurements on awake or sedated companion animals with no shaving or gel.
Replacing the standard Doppler device, the SunTech Vet20 takes just a matter of minutes to obtain results and requires no gel or shaving. Developed in conjunction with experts from leading veterinarian schools, the user-friendly touch screen makes this device simple to use and requires little to no training. In an effort to manage nervous animals, this monitor is extremely quiet, with the option to turn off alarms and audible indicators.
SunTech Medical’s Vet20 is light, portable and battery operated with an automatic battery-saving capability which powers down the device after a specific time of inactivity. It can also be powered by A/C adapter and is small enough to carry between exam rooms, making it convenient for both patients and providers.
Supported by clinical evidence and testing, the SunTech Vet20 BP monitor provides highly accurate BP measurements on awake companion animals with fewer failed measurements.
With the SunTech Vet20, you can count on us to deliver:
Reliability: As a result of SunTech’s motion-tolerant technology, the Vet20 has a high success rate for BP readings.
Simplicity of Use: Intuitive, touch screen interface has all necessary features for reviewing and analyzing BP data.
Accuracy: BP algorithm was specifically developed for companion animals by experts at a leading vet school.
Silence: Device quietly measures BP and alarms may be silenced to avoid frightening the animal.
Speed: Take multiple measurements in a matter of minutes!
Portability: Battery-powered device can be easily moved between exam rooms.
Memory: The Vet20’s advanced memory ensures data is always retained when the device is powered off.
Averaging: Users can select specific measurements from the device memory and perform automated BP averaging.
SunTech’s veterinary products are not human devices re-packaged. We used data from companion animals to develop our SunTech Vet BP technology. In fact, our SunTech Vet BP technology has recently passed the ACVIM blood pressure protocol on anesthetized dogs and here’s a link to the journal article in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia.

What is included when I purchase a Vet20 BP system?
The system includes the BP monitor, patient hose, 6 BP cuffs (sizes #1 to #6), a product manual and 4 AA batteries.
What power options are available?
The SunTech Vet20 can be powered by batteries or an AC adapter.
How many measurements can I store in Memory?
You can store up to 50 measurements. The monitor has a revolving memory. When you take your 51st measurement, it will be listed as measurement #1.
How do I delete BP data from memory?
Select the Memory button and touch the Delete button. Before the memory is cleared, you will be asked to confirm or cancel the deletion. When you clear the Memory, you delete all measurements.
For medium-sized dogs, which animal mode do I choose?
Use cuff size as the determination factor. If a #3 cuff or smaller is the best fit, choose small animal mode. If #4 or larger, choose large animal mode.
How do I choose the correct cuff size?
Wrap the cuff around the patient’s limb and make sure the index line falls within the range marker. If two different cuff sizes fit the patient, choose the larger size.
How long will the batteries last?
250+ BP measurements can be expected from typical alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries will provide even more measurements. Battery life is very dependent on the touch screen display ON time. To maximize life, SunTech suggests setting the Auto OFF timer to 1 minute.
Can I use this monitor on awake and anesthetized animals?
Yes. The SunTech Vet20 can be be used on anesthetized animals as well as awake animals.
How do I keep the cuff from slipping down the limb or coming off?
Attach the cuff as tight as possible. Extra attention will be needed on species with dense or thick fur. If the cuff will not stay attached, check the Velcro for fur and remove if possible.
