SEAL PROTECT HEAL
Hydrogel Wound Sealant
SutureSealTM a long lasting, transparent, bandage replacement that is made of a non-toxic, biodegradable, hydrogel polymer.
Up to 14 Days of Protection
No gauze, no tape, no wraps, no worries about getting it wet, and no more daily bandage changes!
Wound protection for up to 14 days!*
SutureSeal starts as a liquid hydrogel that can be “painted” over various types and shapes of open wounds. In seconds after application, SutureSeal congeals into a gas-permeable bandage replacement providing wound protection for up to 14 days!*
SutureSeal starts and stays clear and flexible.
SutureSeal starts and stays clear and flexible. This makes it is easier to monitor healing and is less restrictive to the patient’s movement. The soothing, non-toxic barrier to dirt and debris will dissolve and fall off on its own as the wound heals.
Providing a bandage option where there is none!
Accidents happen, and our aquatic friends need help too. Luckily SutureSeal is also water resistant. Providing a bandage option where there is none!
"I used SutureSeal on a 4-year old DSH. She had a large laceration on her back leg that was not closeable. SutureSeal was applied, about 2 weeks later the wound was healed, there was not scab left and the hair grew back more than I expected. It seems the SutureSeal helped the wound contract, which minimized scarring. I have used SutureSeal only a couple of times, but I am impressed with the results."
“We used the SutureSeal on an adult female Grey Seal, the SutureSeal worked fantastic! As this animal is large and lives in the water, traditional bandages were not feasible. She did scratch at one incision and cause some dehiscence, but that had nothing to do with the SutureSeal and the other healed fantastically!
After cleaning and re-suturing, the opened incision, we used the SutureSeal again and it healed without incident. Having the suture seal to protect the incision from the environment facilitated faster healing.
We have already purchased another SutureSeal kit because it worked so well.
The product worked great and we were very happy with it. Since we have so many species that we cannot bandage, it is a phenomenal asset to our veterinary toolkit!

“We applied Suture Seal to that Brown Pelican wound today! This is very helpful in an aquatic species such as pelicans to be able to continue care outside and with access to water vs in a dry space for many days until the wound is completely healed.
I see SutureSeal as having the potential to be pretty invaluable in the treatment of these aquatic species, particularly in those that tolerate dry docking far less well than pelicans and cormorants, such as grebes/loons/other strictly aquatic/pelagic species. The amount of time until we are able to provide full access to water may be the difference between being able to rehabilitate a species or not!

This is a specially formulated polymer designed for incision and wound protection in:
· Small Animals…such as: Dogs and Cats
· Large Animals…such as: Horses and Goats
· Exotic Animals…such as: Snakes, Lizards and Frogs
· Marine Mammals…such as: Seals, Dolphins, Whales and Turtles
· Zoo Animals…such as: Elephants, Primates and Birds
SutureSeal™ acts by forming a thin coating that protects the incision site or wound area. It is initially applied as a liquid and transforms into a flexible, breathable gel in about 60-90 seconds.
SutureSeal™ forms a protective layer that prevents dirt and debris from entering the incision or wound area for up to 14 days post application.
SutureSeal™ is colorless, odorless, flexible, water resistant, non-irritating and designed to enhance the healing process. The wound will heal and the polymer will dissolve naturally after 2 weeks.
SutureSeal™ is recommended for all open wounds, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, burns, hot spots, and ALL surgical incisions.
SutureSeal is not intended as a wound or incision closure device and should not be used on wounds that are actively bleeding or seeping heavily.
*Length of protection was tested under ideal conditions. While SutureSeal's unique polymer was formulated for maximum durability, we know your patients are not always in ideal conditions. We recommend more frequent monitoring for animals in less-controlled environments.
