Skin & Hands Disinfection for Veterinarians
Skin antiseptics and hand sanitisers for use in veterinary medicine
Skin and hand disinfection plays an extremely important role in hygiene management of veterinary facilities. Skin disinfection is often done for preoperative preparation of the operating area and for short-term disinfection prior to injections and blood drawing procedures.
Hand sanitisers for veterinary medicine
Operative preparation is done to create a sterile operating field, while short-term disinfection is meant to achieve maximum germ reduction at the injection point.
Hand disinfection is necessary for both, surgical and general hygiene.
Hand disinfectants in veterinary medicine, such as Sterillium, differ not only in their spectrum of efficacy and their contact time, but above all in their tolerability.
As hand disinfection must be carried out by medical staff as standard after every patient contact, the aspect of skin compatibility should be given special attention when selecting a disinfectant.
Skin antiseptics for veterinary medicine
Coloured skin antiseptics are recommended for preoperative patient disinfection, as these make the operating field recognisable prior to draping. The operating area influences the activation time of the skin disinfectant.
More activation time should be allowed for skin areas with a higher concentration of sebaceous glands. You can purchase animal skin antiseptics for a low price from us.
