What is compounding?
Drug compounding is often regarded as the process of combining or mixing drugs to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.
The generic form of Vetmedin is Pimobendan.
Vetmedin is in limited supply. Orders placed will be shipped as product continues to come off backorder.
VETIGEL Hemostatic Gel is an advanced medical product designed to stop bleeding quickly and effectively. It is a hemostatic agent used by veterinarians and healthcare professionals to control bleeding in animals and humans. VETIGEL is known for its rapid action and ease of use in various medical situations.
VETIGEL Hemostatic Gel is a cutting-edge medical product designed to rapidly control bleeding in both veterinary and human medicine. Its mechanism of action involves a combination of advanced biotechnology and natural coagulation processes to achieve hemostasis (the cessation of bleeding). Here's how it works:
VETIGEL Hemostatic Gel utilizes a unique combination of biochemical and physical processes to achieve rapid hemostasis. It forms a gel matrix at the bleeding site, promotes platelet activation, and accelerates clot formation, ultimately stopping bleeding and supporting the body's natural healing process. This innovative product has become an invaluable tool in medical and veterinary settings for managing bleeding effectively and improving patient outcomes.
Remember that the proper administration of VETIGEL is crucial for its effectiveness in controlling bleeding. Always consult with a healthcare professional or veterinarian for guidance on its application, especially in emergency situations or during surgical procedures. Timely and correct administration can make a significant difference in patient outcomes and recovery.
Remember that VETIGEL Hemostatic Gel is a valuable tool in managing bleeding effectively. Always use it in accordance with professional guidance and best practices to achieve optimal results and ensure the safety and well-being of the patient.
VETIGEL is applied by following four steps:
VETIGEL is a plant-based biopolymer solution made of sodium alginate, poly (N-acetyl-D- glucosamine, D-glucosamine) and water. Given VETIGEL is a hydrogel mainly comprised of water, the significant majority (>80%) of the product is absorbed within weeks. The residual poly (N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, D-glucosamine) is expected to degrade in the body enzymatically, and alginates traditionally degrade via acid hydrolysis and/or dissolving due to ion exchange.
VETIGEL has been subjected to human-grade ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing, including long-term implantation studies that have shown the material does not present long-term risk to the patient.
Sodium alginate is a widely used biopolymer in wound dressings intended to keep wounds moist and to promote wound healing. Poly (N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, D-glucosamine) is often used as an antimicrobial agent in medical devices. These materials have been used in ISO 10993 biocompatibility studies and in clinical scenarios where there have been no reports of increased infection.
The risk of increased infection after administering VETIGEL has not been formally evaluated in a clinical setting. Use standard of care practices when applying VETIGEL in contaminated areas.
VETIGEL can be used on a variety of procedures, including but not limited to:
Dental extractions, oral mass removals, abdominal and thoracic mass removals, soft organ biopsies, enucleations, spays & neuters, amputations, venous & arterial bleeds, cholecystectomies, catheterization, lacerations, and ear & tail docking.
