Chicago, Illinois, November 19, 2010 — scil animal care company, inc., a global organization focused on providing high quality veterinary medical equipment, is proud to announce the addition of Aesculap’s Veterinary Osteosynthesis line of products. scil is pleased to exclusively offer Aesculap’s innovative line of implants and set configurations to the North American veterinary market.
Aesculap surgical tools are renowned for durability, quality, and surgical precision. scil is excited to expand their surgical products portfolio as it will allow them to support the North American veterinary industry, and specifically the surgeon, better than ever. “We have had a long standing partnership with Aesculap and have launched their surgical power tool systems to great success. Incorporating the surgical implant product line to our current product offerings was the next logical step as both scil and Aesculap are committed to providing the veterinarian with the highest quality products at a competitive price” says Chris Moore, Director of Operations, scil animal care company, USA. Achim Ott, Sales Manager for B.Braun Vet Care GmbH, adds “We found with scil animal care company a reliable and focused partner for the U.S. vet market. Scil guarantees the features that made Aesculap strong since 1867: Quality, Service and Reliability.”
scil animal care company launched scilvet Academy, its veterinary focused continuing education program, in early 2008. scil hosts several Tibial Tuberosity Advancement workshops throughout the year. scil informs and instructs the general practitioner regarding in-house orthopedics and best practices. As a result of these workshops, scil recognized a significant need to fully support their customers with Aesculap’s Veterinary Osteosynthesis product line. Through expert engineering and clinical trials, Aesculap’s Research and Development team has perfected their veterinary specific Osteosynthesis set components. A great example of this innovation is Aesculap’s recent addition of the 2.4mm plates. They have found that this plate width has similar tensile strength to the 2.7mm with a nicer fit on cats and small dogs. scil made it a priority to immediately launch three Aesculap set configurations: the Mini Fragment Set, Small/Large Fragment Set and the Wires/Cerclages Set. These common surgical sets, consisting of wires, plates, screws and implants, are expected to meet the demand for high quality orthopedic products within the veterinary community.
scil is launching their newly expanded orthopedic product line in conjunction with their new CE course offerings for 2011. In addition to the TTA Workshop, scil will also be hosting TPLO Made Easy and Internal Fracture Fixation courses. scil presents the course attendees with detailed procedure instructions, in-clinic training opportunities, and a full line of Aesculap surgical tools and implants designed to support these beneficial veterinary surgeries. scil has also created a surgical division within the company which includes a team of inside and outside surgical sales specialists, marketing support and product managers. scil continually strives to provide the most comprehensive surgical support system to the North American veterinary market.
