Tip of the Week: Stick To It

Ask supporters to help celebrate Spay/Neuter Awareness Month by donating adhesive rollers. These can be used to pick up any fine hairs that are missed by a vacuum when a spay/neuter surgical site is shaved. This is important as such hairs can interfere with sterility of the site and complicate closure of the skin.

After use, the adhesive tape is removed and the roller is ready for the next patient. 



Ready to roll with this idea? Let us know your thoughts!
