Med-Vet International now offers HemoHold
Med-Vet International announced that it now offers Hemo- HoldTM, The Only Hemostatic HydrogelTM. HemoHold was recently showcased at the Western Veterinary Conference and the North American Veterinary Conference. HemoHold looks and feels like a hydrogel, but the hydrophilic polymer technology inherent to HemoHold combined with wound exudate proteins creates a mechanical barrier over the wound surface. This barrier stops minor capillary bleeding, helps protect the wound from external contamination, and blocks external environmental stimuli to provide pain relief. The hydrogel nature keeps the wound hydrated and supports healing. For a free sample and more information visit www.shopmedvet.com or call (800) 544-7521.
