Catgut Plain

Catgut Plain is an absorbable suture made from natural collagen. Catgut Plain suture is *the* classic absorbable suture in veterinary medicine. Although it is a multifilament, it has a monofilament look and is neither coated nor treated (hence the name "Catgut Plain").
The material for Catgut Plain sutures is obtained from the serosal layer of bovine intestines. To ensure a high degree of safety, Catgut Plain from SMI is exclusively manufactured from bovine intestines from countries and bovine populations that are guaranteed to be free of BSE.
