Reduces the microbial load in exuding wounds with moderate fluid levels

Sorbact® Foam Dressing is a sterile foam dressing that binds bacteria and fungi. It consists of a green Sorbact® wound contact layer combined with a polyurethane foam, with a semi-permeable backing film. Sorbact® Foam Dressing absorbs and retains wound fluid, thereby reducing the risk of maceration, and creates a moist wound environment. The semi-permeable backing film allows excess fluids to evaporate.

Intended use
Sorbact® Foam Dressing is designed for use in the treatment of clean, contaminated, colonized, or infected exuding wounds with slight to moderate fluid levels.

Clean the wound as instructed by your vet. Choose a suitable dressing size. The dressing should overlap the edges of the wound by at least 2 cm. Remove the dressing from the packaging without touching the green Sorbact® surface. Use sterile scissors if the dressing needs to be cut. Any remaining opened and unused parts of the dressing should be discarded.

Apply the dressing. Ensure that the green side of the dressing is in direct contact with the entire wound surface.

Place cotton around the leg.

Place gauze around the cotton, first loosely and then gradually tighter, to stabilize the bandage. Tie with a small knot on the front of the leg or side of the tibia to ensure there is no pressure on the tendons.

Vetwrap: begin with the middle of the bandage, before moving downwards and then upwards. Not too tight; you should be able to fit your finger between the bandage and the leg once you have finished. Never bind Vetwrap directly to the fur, as it can injure the leg.

How often the dressing needs to be changed will depend on how much the wound is exuding and its general condition. If the clinical condition allows, the dressing can remain in place for up to seven days.
