Georgetown, KY...November 16, 2010...Celox Veterinary, a revolutionary new anti-bleeding product used as a major lifesaver for humans in emergency rooms and the military, is now available in the United States for animals.  HRL Distributors of Georgetown, Kentucky is the exclusive U.S. distributor for Celox, which can be purchased by consumers from veterinarians.  

Celox Veterinary is used to stop bleeding in all animals and is available in granular packets or as gauze.  It can be used by veterinarians to stop life threatening, emergency bleeding in animals, and can also be kept in animal first aid kits and tack trunks.  Celox has no special storage requirements and does not generate heat.

"Celox has been the product of choice for battlefield applications by the United States military for years," said Bill Oster, President of HRL Distributors.  "It is finally available for animal use with multiple veterinary applications, and we are proud to have the domestic distribution rights.  We are working with veterinarians everywhere to make this product available to the U.S. animal market."

Celox is made from Chitosan, which is derived from the shells of shrimp and other crustaceans.  When mixed with blood, Celox forms a robust gel-like clot in 30 seconds.  It works independently of the body's normal clotting processes, and has been proven to work in the cold or in the presence of common anti-coagulants like heparin.  

In addition to military use, Celox has been used successfully for humans by police, ambulance and other emergency medical personnel.  It has potential surgical uses and is suitable for all bleeding wounds:  lacerations, minor cuts, grazes, arterial and venous bleeding, along with surface and deep wounds.  Celox significantly reduces blood loss and is proven to save lives.
