Needles!

Let us tell you a little more about the needles Animus Surgical use with there Swaged range.

Manufactured in the USA, our needles are silicon-coated to allow smoother tissue passage, the sharpness, profile and smooth transition from needle to suture will enhance every closure.

We believe our products are as good as if not better than the leading brands, our sharper needles minimise the degree of trauma to the animal.

We offer two needle variants, the 1/2 circle TAPER POINT and 3/8 circle REVERSE CUTTING, taper point for soft, easily penetrated tissues and reverse cutting for cutting the edge on the outer curve. Available in a good selection of sizes,ranging from 19mm* to 37mm* (*depending on product),with our Violine, Monoline and Monovite Swage range.

Monkey World

Our suture material isn’t just for suturing animals. Our Monoline is currently being used by a Monkey world rehabilitation unit in Southern Vietnam to help with the release of Pygmy Loris back into the wild. Our product is being used to tie the radio controlled collars, with the hope that the collars will provide useful information on where the monkeys go and that they are well during the rainy and dry season before the suture material naturally degrades.
