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 "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 by SMI is exclusively manufactured from bovine intestines from countries and bovine populations that are guaranteed free from BSE.
