CO2 Gas Instructions:
You will need a local provider for your gas ( CO2 ); the two most available companies around the US are Airgas and Praxair.

Choose the type of tank that will meet your needs and you are comfortable working with. The most common sizes are 5LB, 20Lb, and 50LB. I recommend renting the tanks initially, so you can determine what size is the best for your practice. Rental fees are somewhere between $0.3 to $0.5 per day, depending on your state.
-5 LB Ideal for use “on the go” or treat a small area (like a suspensory)
-50 Lb Ideal for use at the same facility and will treat multiple horses per day.
-20 Lb Ideal for anything situation in between
IMPORTANT: You must order a Co2 tank WITH A SIPHON (because we are using the liquid part located at the bottom of the tank, without a siphon, the device will only have access to the gas part and will not be cold enough). Please note that the 5LB tank does not exist with a siphon; we have a carrying case for purchase that holds the tank upside down, in order to remedy this issue.
Most gas providers offer delivery (daily/weekly frequency depends on your area); if you choose the 50Lb tank, I recommend the delivery option. The delivery is a flat fee, so it is a good idea to order multiple tanks at a time. If you have any questions or concerns that have not been addressed here, please feel free to reach out to us.
