Administration and dosage
- Vetbond tissue adhesive must be at room temperature before use. Do not heat.
- Remove bottle cap. To open, cut off bottle tip with scissors or blade. Place flexible applicator tip on bottle.
- Vetbond adhesive may be used between stainless steel staples, but application of adhesive on staples may
interfere with staple removal.
- When finished, remove excess adhesive in vial tip by holding bottle upright and gently squeeze 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.
Product can be refrigerated or frozen for extended shelf life before opening. Store bottle upright on shelf in a cool, dry place (away from heat). After opening, do not return 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 well-ventilated area. Avoid breathing vapors over long periods of time.
Avoid contact of adhesive with instruments, gloves and surgical instruments. Polymerized adhesive on instruments can be removed by soaking in acetone.
Do not use:
- if adhesive appears thicker than water at room temperature. 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.
