VetBond Tissue Adhesive
Vetbond™ is used to bind tissue together for veterinary procedures so natural healing can occur.
Vetbond™ adhesive changes from a liquid to a solid state within seconds of making contact with body tissue.
- Contains a blue dye, showing where the product has already been administered, making application of the product so much easier.
- The adhesive stops minor bleeding and binds wound edges.
- In some instances, Vetbond may replace the need for sutures or bandages.
Recommended for dewclaw removals, minor lacerations, abrasions, suture/staple line sealing, tooth extractions, and oral surgeries.
Vetbond™ also acts as a barrier to keep foreign matter from entering the wound.
Each 3 ml bottle contains approximately 150 drops.
Vetbond™ Tissue Adhesive is used to quickly and conveniently close minor wounds. Vetbond™ often eliminates the need for sutures or bandages. Creates a strong bond that polymerizes in seconds. Binds wound edges together to promote natural healing. Vetbond™ Tissue Adhesive is blue, making application easier to see.
Vetbond™ Tissue Adhesive contains:
N-butyl cyanoacrylate (>98% by weight),
Hydroquinone (<1 % by weight),
blue dye (.01% by weight).
Vetbond™ Tissue Adhesive must be at room temperature before use. Do not heat.
Remove bottle cap and cut off bottle tip, and place flexible applicator tip on the bottle.
Vetbond™ adhesive may be used between stainless steel staples, but application of adhesive on staples may interfere with staple removal.
Remove excess adhesive in vial tip by holding bottle upright and gently squeeze a single drop of adhesive out of tip onto a paper towel.
Wipe bottle tip with the same paper towel.
Replace bottle cap.
Expel adhesive from applicator tip by pushing air through it from a standard syringe.
- Store in a cool, dry place.
- Maintain product at room temperature during use.
- The product can be refrigerated or frozen for extended shelf life before opening.
- Store bottle upright on a shelf in a cool, dry place (away from heat).
After opening, do not return the bottle to the refrigerator.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. If in eyes, hold eyelids open and flush thoroughly with water. An ophthalmologist should be consulted.
Use in a well-ventilated area.
Avoid breathing vapors over long periods of time.
Avoid contact of the adhesive with instruments, gloves, and surgical instruments.
The polymerized adhesive on instruments can be removed by soaking in acetone.
Do not use:
If adhesive appears thicker than water at room temperature. The thickened product has partially polymerized and will not form an acceptable bond.
- Internally, on infected and/or deep puncture wounds, or below the epidermal layer.
- In the presence of soaps, cotton products (gauze, cotton-tipped applicators, etc.), basic substances (soaps, etc.) or polyurethane foam applicators. These materials may cause excessive exothermic (heat generating) reaction.
