  • VetSorb is the brand of the Veterinary Sutures' Polyglycolic Acid sutures. 

  • The Catgut Chromic Suture is an absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of highly purified connective tissue (primarily collagen) derived from bovine intestines. It is reabsorbed by enzymatic reaction. It has a chromed cover that prolongs the integrity of the strand. The chromic catgut suture meets the requirements established by USP.

  • Catgut Simple suture is an absorbable, sterile surgical suture composed of highly purified connective tissue (primarily collagen) derived from bovine intestines. Due to an extremely short absorption period, it causes a minimal reaction in the tissues. The process of absorption is by phagocytosis, being digested by the enzymes of the body.

  • Vet-Xanone is a polydioxanone suture, sterile, absorbable, monofilament surgical suture composed of the Polydioxanone Polymer. It causes only minimal tissue reactivity during the absorption process. It is ideal for internal tissues, where a long-lasting absorbable suture is preferable. Its synthetic material causes less reactivity than natural sutures.

  • It is a synthetic, absorbable, sterile, monofilament suture made from the polymer Glycolide and E-Caprolactone (PGCL). Its degradation is by hydrolysis, being absorbed by the human body between 90 and 120 days. Complies with the requirements established by USP. Its tensile strength is reduced from the fourth week of implantation.
