Vetlig products are advanced orthopaedic technology designed to reconstruct dog and cat ligaments and tendons.

It is the most advanced non-biological soft tissue treatment option. It gives immediate strength, optimised function, conservative anatomical restoration and rapid recovery.

Whilst being very strong, at the same time they are smaller to implant, which is kinder to the bone and more conservative.

These products help veterinarians to give their patients options which have not been available before and enable them to get back to normal activities with minimal downtime.

Evidence-based medicine

Vetlig and its partner Novetech surgery work with the only human grade UHMWPE material for our ligaments and sutures made in France. Our instruments are also made in France and the UK.

The manufacture of these ligaments and instruments are from CE and FDA accredited facilities which are regularly checked and monitored.

Our products are throughly tested to make sure they are stronger than the ligament they replace, are bio compatible and are safe. We are the only company to have tested the ligaments to the original Lars ligaments which were used in human orthopaedics.

The implant is stronger yet allows smaller tunnels than the original ligaments Vetlig ltd used to sell. We have evolved the ligament to allow good stability, versatility and recovery with our products.

Now Popzy is a happy little poodle who can run around and play again

Popzy is a female toy poodle, who in 2017 had a CCL reconstruction with a vetlig ligament done arthroscopically.

Popzy’s owner Linda Ekblom says:

“I think that the operation went smoothly and without complications and was the best choice for Popzy. Popzy recovered so well within days after the operation and it was hard to make her take it easy and not jump and run around too much.

The surgical wounds were easy to take care of as they were so small and so I would really recommend Krister Julinders operation with the Vetlig ligament. Now Popzy is a happy little poodle who can run around and play again.”
