Dr Shashikant Jadhav, Clinical Director, Jivdaya Charitable Trust stated, “We are proud to be associated with Axio Biosolutions for the launch of SureKlot. It’s heartening to see such top-notch innovation in the veterinary space. At Jivdaya, we continue to see animals injured and in pain every day. Such disruptive products in animal wound care will help us offer better hospital care for the animals in distress and help them recover faster – which, in turn, will help us attend to more animals in need. It gives me hope for a better tomorrow – for animals and humans.”
Dr Kiran Sonaje, Head – R&D,Axio Bisolutions, further noted, “What distinguishes SureKlotproducts is that they aremade of 100% Chitosan, a natural biopolymer derived from shellfish, which helps control bleeding and enhances wound healing. Also, it is non-toxic – which is great because animals have a habit of licking their wounds. I find themparticularly effective in treating bite wounds that are difficult to suture, during surgeries to control bleeding, as well as post-surgeries where therisk of infection is high.”
Sureklot is available in a Patch, Gauze, Powder, and Spray form to suit different types of wounds. It is recommended for emergency trauma and deep cuts, arterial or venous bleeding, surgical/procedural bleeding, bleeding from animal paws and hooves and animal chest and abdominal wounds.
