Veterinary catheters are the long slender flexible tubes used to deliver medications, fluids, blood, plasma transfusions and gases to the animal body. A catheter is used to drain waste fluids like urine from the body of animals. Veterinary catheters are usually inserted into the blood vessels, ducts, or body cavities. The process of inserting the catheter inside the body is called catheterization. Though catheter insertion is a moderately safe procedure; a trauma may be caused to the bladder occasionally. However, this discomfort caused by usage of catheters can be minimized using soft tip catheters and lubricants. The global veterinary catheters market is a well-established industry with a presence of large number of leading players. Inserting a catheter is considered as a well-tolerated procedure mostly in dogs and cats. A catheter can be placed within number of distinct peripheral veins with most common locations including the front legs and inner/outer side of hind legs. A catheter that is inserted intravenously has been reported to frequently cause nosocomial infection in hospitalized veterinary patients, thus a set of hygiene considerations have to be kept in attention to implement aseptic catheter insertion technique.
