IV Catheters for animals
Intravenous catheters for animals can be applied in various ways throughout veterinary medicine. For example, they can be used for infusions and medication administration, as well as for drawing blood. Indwelling catheters offer the advantage of the cannula being removed after setting the catheter allows the catheter to remain in the vein, as it is made from flexible synthetics. This reduces the risk of injury in restless animals. Furthermore, a central venous catheter remain in the vein for multiple days, which provides an especially large advantage when regularly administering infusions.
Special IV Catheters for cows, horses and more
Depending on the animal species, various intravenous catheters come into use.
For smaller animals like dogs or cats, IV catheters for humans can be used, where as large animals like horses or cows require the use of special intravenous catheters that differentiate from common central venous catheters in cannula size and diameter.
The Intranule from Génia is a polypropylene IV cannula, which is excellent for use in large animal medicine. Whether for medication administration, blood drawing or for infusion therapy, the Intranule has multiple applications. Thanks to the wings, this IV cannula is particularly easy to use and fix.
In order to securely close IV catheters for animals, special stylets are used. These fit perfectly in the lumen of the IV catheter and are equipped with a Luer-Lock connector that hygienically and safely closes the CVC.
