Micro Plating! Ask us about VetKISS
 
The VetKISS™ micro plating system represents the world’s smallest, clinically tested veterinary locking plate system. The KISS approach (Keep It Simple Surgeon) defined the development of this user-friendly and cost-effective osteosynthesis system. VetKISS™ is appropriate for a variety of feline, toy breed, and exotic patients, as well as metacarpal and metatarsal fractures in larger patients. 
Noteworthy facts:
  • Available in 3 sizes: 1.0 mm, 1.4 mm, and 1.6 mm
  • Symmetrical design allows for use as a left- or right-handed plate
  • Cut-to-length plates minimize inventory requirements

Tiny mascot joins Team Fourlimb
 
Despite his size, little Taco made a pretty big impact when he bounced into the Fourlimb office last month. He joins our whippet Winnie in the esteemed role of Fourlimb mascot. To be honest neither do much work (other than catching the odd rogue blowfly) but their presence keeps us entertained and that's probably enough to hold their titles. You've probably guessed Taco is a Chihuahua and, at two months of age, weighs just 980 grams. He sports a kitten collar with a bell so we don't tread on him. Now all we need is a similar alert system for his puddles...
