Trio Veterinary Care has developed an adhesive remover that is designed to make dressing change the simple process it should be.
Currently, adhesives are removed through the use of spirit, which – although readily available in all clinics – is not ideal as it can sting, and the odour can agitate the patient making them difficult to manage. Further, it works by dissolving the adhesive and therefore can be damaging to the skin.
Trio Sting Free Adhesive Remover is a 100% silicone spray, designed to aid pain free removal of dressings.
The silent inert spray produces a gentle mist to avoid “cold shock” and is odour free, which helps keep the animal calm. This in turn helps to avoid further trauma to the patient or the nurse during dressing change and leaves the skin residue free, ready for re-dressing.
According to the company, nurses and vets who have used the product report that it has made the whole visit “smoother and hassle free”.
Trio Sting Free Adhesive Remover is available in 50ml and 200ml cans as well as wipes from your wholesaler or direct from Trio Veterinary Care (part of the Trio Healthcare group of companies).
