General Instructions for Use:
1. Allow dropper bottle to come to room temperature before using. Cooler adhesive will take longer to polymerize. Do not heat VETBONDâ„¢ Tissue Adhesive to bring it to room temperature
2. Remove bottle cap. To open, cut off tip of bottle with scissors or blade. If any adhesive leaks during the opening of the bottle, clean the bottle tip with clean, dry gauze before placing applicator tip on the bottle. Place flexible applicator tip on the bottle for use. The applicator tip can be removed. Clean the bottle tip with clean, dry gauze before replacing the bottle cap
3. Application site should be free of excess fluids for best performance of the adhesive. Excessive fluids exert a weakening effect on the bond strength. A saline wash or preparatory solution, e.g. Betadineâ„¢*, may be used prior to surgery as long as the surgical site is blotted dry before applying the adhesive
4. Apply the adhesive sparingly (e.g. one drop per digit in a cat declaw procedure) to the site to form a thin film. This enhances the bonding action. Thick applications tend to crack and lift prematurely
5. Avoid touching moist surfaces with applicator tip since this could clog the tip
6. When procedures are complete, remove excess adhesive in vial tip by holding bottle upright and gently squeezing the single drop of adhesive out of the tip onto a paper towel. This will prevent the tip from clogging. To assure that no residual adhesive remains in the applicator tip, attach it to a 3 mL syringe to expel any adhesive out of the tip.7. Replace bottle cap. Store vial away from heat (in a cool, dry location, if possible). Store bottle upright on a shelf.
