About Thames Medical

We supply anaesthesia monitoring equipment for veterinary professionals with an emphasis on reliable high-quality equipment, dedicated aftercare, and improved patient outcomes.

Our History

Thames Medical was founded in 1993 to introduce, sell and service innovative vital signs monitors specialising in the pre-hospital, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) field. One of the first products available was the revolutionary portable MiniPack 911 series of Blood Pressure/ Pulse Oximeter monitors, designed especially for paramedics on the move.

Since then we have extended into various fields and in particular the Veterinary field where we are known for introducing the first veterinary specific pulse Oximeter (1994) and more latterly with work particularly in the feline hypertension. Various patents have been filed over the years including one for a multi wavelength pulse Oximeter, now used by and seeing life as the rainbow monitor from Masimo.

The last 25 years have brought challenges and changes to us all and Thames Medical today bears little or no resemblance to the company that started this journey. Veterinary medicine now provides us with 99% of our work and so we concentrate our research and development in this area with some fascinating, original research projects currently running. Our education and support divisions are also expanding and developing and we continue to thrive, applying the lessons learned to bring the latest safety innovations to our clients, making their lives easier and the ultimate end users of our products and services – the patients – lives safer and better.

Our Values


Education is at the heart of what we do; we love improving confidence and understanding in anaesthesia. We love making a difference. During the pandemic, it became impossible for us to provide our usual in-practice training sessions. We wanted to continue helping our clients from a distance, and the best way to do this was online. That’s why we created a free online E-Learning centre to help Veterinary professionals keep their anaesthesia skills up. Our Resource Centres are free access, so anyone can make use of them.


Protecting the environment is our biggest passion. We focus on helping our clients build good habits so we can all make a difference together. We can help you reduce your environmental impact through CPD and training, advanced anaesthetic equipment and specialist know-how. We've also made several steps internally to practice what we preach. For more information on our internal environmental policies, please click the link below.


Veterinary Medicine is a difficult profession. We know - we’ve been supporting vets in the United Kingdom (and internationally) for over 25 years. That’s why we want our clients to feel supported with monitoring and anesthetic equipment, compassionate training, friendly service, budget-friendly options and an open dialogue. Empathy is so important when dealing with customers and their pets. We help you provide compassionate and caring services to ensure your customers get the most from you as a professional.
