Wipe away excess blood where possible.
If required, cut or tear the sponge to the necessary size to suit the wound then place the perforated(rough) side of the sponge directly onto the wound. Collaclot can be formed to ‘fit’ any wound or site where rapid coagulation is required.
Cover the sponge with an appropriate dressing and apply direct pressure until bleeding is controlled /stops.
Wrap with a bandage to maintain pressure and seek further veterinary assistance where required.
Following use and where possible, excessive Collaclot should be removed from the wound site. However, as a naturally occurring product (collagen) it will slowly be absorbed by the body.
