No pet owner wants to disregard their pet’s needs over cost.

Protégé Biomedical will attend the upcoming SuperZoo show to promote its patent-pending blood clotting powder, ClotIt. ClotIt recently garnered attention when it saved a Minnesota pet owner from costly surgery on a Weimaraner’s injured paw. The dog had been bleeding excessively due to an abnormal blood vessel structure in its paw. The vessel had caused bleeding issues several times before, resulting in numerous vet visits. When pressure and bandages failed to correct the problem throughout the night, the dog’s owners brought the dog into the clinic. The veterinarian recommended performing surgery to tie off the artery and stop the blood flow. The vet then decided to try ClotIt and, having never used it before, thought it would only be a temporary fix. Not only did ClotIt quickly stop the bleeding, but it kept the bleeding under control, making surgery unnecessary. Two days later, at a follow-up visit, the veterinarian confirmed that the paw had healed completely.

Protégé Biomedical has received many similar reports in which ClotIt has helped pet owners and vets with a variety of bleeding issues. This story about the Weimaraner is a perfect example of the usefulness of this product. “Paw injuries are especially common. We have had a great response to our product and it is now being used in over 300 K-9 units,” said co-founder and President of Protégé Biomedical, Susan Wuollett. “No pet owner wants to disregard their pet’s needs over cost, so when a product like ClotIt can help the animal as well as, or even better than, more costly alternatives, we create a win-win situation.” The Weimaraner’s owner was delighted to have an option she could easily administer at home, avoiding the stress of consistent emergency room visits.

SuperZoo is a great chance for Protégé Biomedical to share ClotIt with the pet community. “SuperZoo attracts buyers from all over the country promising introductions to the latest products and trends,” said Susan. “We are excited to have this opportunity with the most popular tradeshow for the pet retail industry attracting more retailers, suppliers, and service providers than any other show in North America.” Members of the Protégé Biomedical team are hopeful that ClotIt will impress attendees of the SuperZoo show as much as it has everyone else who has had the opportunity to use it. They are eager to spread the word about the benefits of this innovative new product and help pet owners, vets, and others who work with animals throughout the world.
