New Anti-bacterial Suture Material Introduced

Posted by Lyndon Basha in News | Article permalink on May 02 2013

We are excited to announce that we have recently introduced ‘anti-bacterial suture material’.

Yes, some may think we are a bit weird getting excited about suture material, but it is an example of our passion and sense of responsibility we place on ourselves in caring for your pet.

Anti-bacterial suture material incorporates the latest medical advances in sutures, which helps reduce the possibility of a surgical site infection.

We pride ourselves on the quality of care we provide and this is just one of the many ways we strive to provide the best standards of care available.

Please note that different suture materials are designed for different purposes, eg internal and external, self absorbing and non-absorbing. Whilst we utilise anti-bacterial suture material when available, the technology is not yet available across all suture types.
