What are VETLIG products and how will it benefit my pet?

As pet owners ourselves, it is understandable to be nervous about a member of the family having surgery. This section is to try and explain what Vetlig does and how it will benefit your pet.

The Vetlig ligament is a form of soft tissue internal fixation, rather like a bone plate and screws when you fracture your leg or your arm, it helps the bodies own tissue to heal in the correct position or sometimes even replaces it.

Vetlig is a veterinary product created due to the success of artificial ligaments in humans, and with over 25 years of experience this has taught us a lot, and also made us realise that animals not just humans can benefit from this technology.

The Vetlig product is a synthetic ligament made from ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, similar to devices that have been used in medicine for heart, hernia, knee and hip surgery for many, many years. It is very strong but at the same time is small to implant, which is kinder to the bone and more conservative.

The operation whether it be for the knee or the Achilles is almost the same technique that is used in human orthopaedic repairs, sometimes it will be open surgery and sometimes it will be arthroscopic depending on the vets preference.

Please see some of the case studies from happy owners and dogs who have had treatment with the vetlig products from all over Europe. If you want to know if there is a vet in your area using our products please contact us.
