Cresilon Announces Global Distribution Agreement for VETIGEL with Covetrus


Revolutionary hemostatic gel for veterinary surgeons available in the U.K. and across Europe through Veterinary Instrumentation and distribution partners

Cresilon Inc. (“Cresilon”), a Brooklyn-based biotechnology company focused on hemostatic medical device technologies, today announced it has entered into a distribution agreement for its revolutionary hemostatic gel, VETIGEL®, to be sold directly to veterinary surgeons in the U.K. and throughout Europe through Veterinary Instrumentation (Vi), a leading supplier of professional products to support veterinarians in maintaining animal welfare during surgery.

Based in the U.K., Vi is part of the Covetrus animal health family of worldwide businesses. Cresilon’s VETIGEL, a plant-based hemostatic gel that instantly stops and controls bleeding, is available online for U.K. veterinary surgeons through Vi’s extensive portfolio of surgical and orthopedic instrumentation, joint surgery, and fracture fixation products.

In addition to the U.K., VETIGEL will be marketed and distributed to veterinary surgeons throughout Europe and many other countries through Vi’s extensive global distribution network. Cresilon’s Scientific Services Veterinarian and Fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (FRCVS), Dr. Neil Smith, will be providing online training on VETIGEL to all Vi distribution partners in June.

“Our partnership with Veterinary Instrumentation will help us provide more veterinary surgeons with a revolutionary hemostatic gel that significantly improves the standard of care for pets and animals,” said Matt Lewis, Vice President of Sales at Cresilon. “VETIGEL has been used by thousands of veterinarians thus far and helps veterinary clinics and animal hospitals save time, reduce operating costs, and improve patient outcomes.”

Since the product’s debut in 2021, veterinary surgeons across North AmericaEurope, and Asia have increasingly used VETIGEL as the fastest and most effective hemostatic agent when treating animals for traumatic wounds and routine and complex surgical procedures, including dental extractions, liver biopsies, tumor and mass removals, cleft palate repairs, and amputations. To date, the plant-based hemostatic gel for veterinary surgeons has been used in more than 50,000 surgical procedures worldwide.

VETIGEL offers veterinary surgeons a safe and efficient way to control animal bleeding across multiple types of bleeds and a wide range of surgical procedures. The veterinary hemostatic agent is made of two plant-based polysaccharides that form an instant mechanical barrier to stop bleeding on contact. Once the bleeding is controlled, VETIGEL can be easily removed without disturbing the underlying clot or left in the body to resorb.

The plant-based hemostatic gel is supplied in a pre-filled syringe, is easy to use, and requires no preparation or special storage conditions. For more information about VETIGEL, visit

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
