Administration and dosage
Proper preparation of the wound site is critical for using VetOne Surgical Adhesive successfully. If antiseptic treatment is desired for the wound site, wash the area with a povidone solution. Do not use other topical ointments or salves because they may interfere with the formation of the VetOne Surgical Adhesive bandage.
After preparing the wound site, use sterile gauze to remove any accumulating blood or moisture from the wound. DO NOT APPLY VETONE SURGICAL ADHESIVE OVER A POOL OF BLOOD OR FLUID. This causes improper polymerization of the bandage and results in premature sloughing of the bandage.
Hold the tip of the bottle, fitted with the applicator tip, slightly above the wound. Release the VetOne Surgical Adhesive drops, one at a time, until the wound is completely covered. The VetOne Surgical Adhesive bandage should extend slightly beyond the wound onto healthy tissue. DO NOT OVER-APPLY. A light, thin coat is better than a thick, heavy coat. Too much VetOne Surgical Adhesive will lose flexibility and could develop microscopic cracks.
Use of the applicator tip:
The applicator tip fits snugly into the tip on the bottle. This tip allows greater control over the size and placement of the drop. Also, the tip can be bent, providing easier delivery in tight places. After use, remove the pipette and discard. Wipe the applicator tip clean before replacing the cap.
VetOne Surgical Adhesive can be removed from skin or other surfaces with dimethylsulfoxide or acetone.
- Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
- Avoid contact with clothing because the stain will be permanent.
- Avoid contact with metal instruments.
