Which wounds should Kollavet® Collagen Particles be used with?
Kollavet® collagen particles are safe and effective in treating small and large pet wounds at home. They are appropriate for use on surgical sites, traumatic wounds, superficial wounds, burns, footpad injuries, hot spots, and lick granulomas. Our collagen products are designed to help animal wounds heal quickly. Kollavet® Collagen Particles are the best wound treatment to promote wounds to stop bleeding, new tissue formation and strong scar healing. Kollavet® Collagen Particles are easy to apply, non-toxic, safe, natural, and effective. Collagen particles are ideal for larger wounds with deep and irregularly shaped wound bases.
Kollavet® Collagen particles interact with the wound microenvironment on a cellular and molecular level assisting the body’s natural healing process. The particles are made from 100% non-hydrolyzed type 1 bovine native collagen. Human BioSciences, Inc. developed proprietary Kollagen™ technology which has been used in human wound care for the last 30 years. The process protects and retains significantly more native triple helical protein structure which maintains the stability of the collagen to make more of the molecules available through all four phases of wound healing.
Indication for use:
- Small to large draining wounds.
- Surgical sites
- Traumatic wounds
- Superficial wounds
- Footpad injuries
- Hot spots
- Lick granulomas
Are there any wounds you should not use collagen particles on?
Yes, Kollavet® is made from bovine or cattle origins. If your pet is sensitive to beef, it may not be appropriate. Wounds that are extremely dry may not be appropriate. Kollavet® Collagen particles may be pre-moistened with normal saline to activate the product and donate moisture to the wound bed. You can moisten the wound bed with a cleanser, pat dry the surrounding tissue and then sprinkle the particles into the moistened wound. This will help the particles stick to the wound bed. Remember all vials are intended for one-time use and the package is only sterile until opened.
