PURICORE DONATES NOVAZO WOUND IRRIGATION SOLUTION TO KITS FOR K9S FOR INJURED K9 OFFICERS
MALVERN, PA (January 13, 2014) – PuriCore (LSE: PURI), a global company focused on safe and effective protection against the spread of infectious pathogens, today announced that the Company has donated its new safe and effective animal health wound cleanser, NovaZo™ Wound Irrigation Solution, to Kits for K9s, a nonprofit effort to provide veterinary field aid to injured K9 officers. By the end of 2014, nearly 200 Kits for K9s including NovaZo will be distributed to police departments throughout the United States for field care of injured K9 officers.
“When K9 officers are injured in the line of duty, the goal is to provide them with the best possible emergency care that will help stabilize them and ready them for successful treatment once they reach an animal hospital and can be evaluated by an Emergency and Critical Care team,” said Lisa Booth, DVM, who runs the Kits for K9s program. “NovaZo Wound Irrigation Solution is a new steroid- and antibiotic-free product that does not harm healthy tissue and is safe for use around mouth, nose, eyes and ears, making it an optimal wound cleanser to be used in the field.”
“We applaud Dr. Booth’s dedication and passion to K9 officers and are honored to provide our NovaZo product as part of this best-in-class field care kit,” said Geoff Koontz, PuriCore GM Health Sciences & VP Corporate Marketing. “NovaZo is a natural first-response treatment for a wide range of wounds, enabling human police officers to provide quick and easy immediate care to their injured canine colleagues.”
NovaZo is a safe and effective wound cleanser for use on companion and large animals of all species including competitive animals. NovaZo is used in the management of post-surgical incisions; moist dressings; hot spots, bites, and rashes; burn, graft, and flap dressings; and for debridement irrigation and odor control. It can be dispensed for home and farm use. NovaZo is safe for use around an animal's mouth, nose, eyes, and ears and is non-cytotoxic, non-stinging, and steroid-free. NovaZo is available to veterinarians through MWI Veterinary Supply or directly from PuriCore. More information on NovaZo is available at www.novazo.com.
