We had a great weekend in Chicago meeting other vet supply and manufacturing companies at the AVMA Convention. Our previous experience has been spent in the medical research industry so we didn’t exactly know what to expect at the convention. We found several other manufacturing companies who are also expanding into animal health.
Here is a brief description of some of our favorites:
http://vetport.com/ – I had a nice discussion and got some great advice on how he uses fixation pins and support rods at his veterinary clinic. They have a cool technology, if you run a vet, you should take a look!
AVMA VMAT – avma.org – Disaster Relief Group. This is a really cool group, I never knew existed. When disasters strike, states call up AVMA VMAT to help animals of the tragedy. They had a dog from FEMA on site.
Super Brush – Super Brush is a contract manufacturer that mainly supports the medical industry. They create swabs for a variety medical procedures.
Diatech – Diatech has long been in the dental supply field for humans but have recently ventured into the animal world. Since veterinarians use the same dental instruments on animals, we thought it was a great fit! We offer a variety of rotary dental instruments
Spectrum Surgical Instruments – manufactures the finest quality German instruments backed by their famous lifetime warranty including free scissor sharpening and needle holder jaw replacement. Spectrum’s complete line of instrument care products includes solutions, sterilization trays, cleaning brushes, and ultrasonic machines
MWI Veterinary Supply – partner to all major pharmaceutical, diet, and equipment manufacturers, bringing you a selection of more than 11,000 products serving the livestock, small animal, and equine veterinarian.
