Bannonwoods is proud to offer the synthetic joint lubricant “NoltrexVet”; an inert, non-degradable, viscoelastic product.
This product was developed in Europe as a human product for use in people that were unable to undergo surgery (such as knee replacement) due to anesthetic risks. i.e. elderly and compromised patients that had pain from degenerative joint disease. This product is administered as an interarticular joint injection and in our Veterinary patients minimal sedation is required for injection.
NoltrexVet coats the joint surface and reduces the mechanical stress to the joint. When a joint has arthritis, the cushion that protects the bones from rubbing together (the cartilage) is eroded. The pain associated from bone to bone contact is extreme.
Bannonwoods was an early adaptor of NoltrexVet and we have found the results to be incredible!
We have added NoltrexVet to our Orthopedic protocol for joint surgery in all species at this time as an ongoing effort to provide high quality medicine and surgery for our patients.
