If someone told you that they were about to cover your pet’s wound with a layer of glass, would you let them?
Perhaps you’d think differently if you knew about RediHeal, a new type of sterile glass mesh with microbial properties. The glass is infused with nano-particles which mimic the structure the body uses to produce blood clots. This stimulates the body to produce new blood vessels and speed healing.
Similar to sutures used in human surgery for years, RediHeal is absorbed by surrounding tissue and dissolves over time, making removal unnecessary. The product has been used to treat wounds, hot spots and ulcers in pets.
Ironically, RediHeal is currently available only for veterinary use. The product was developed as a result of a small human clinical test group of adult diabetics where it proved effective in treatment of venous ulcers. It has not yet been licensed or approved for human use.
