Cohesive Wraps: When It's the Right Choice for Your Animals

A cohesive wrap is a bandage made of material that sticks to itself - but not to other substances.  Wraps are also called cohesive tapes or cohesive bandages, and they have a wide array of uses in veterinary hospitals, stables, kennels and clinics. 

A cohesive wrap’s easy tear and strong self-grip make it the ideal choice for supporting a limb. Cohesive wraps are an excellent choice for animal health professionals to use because:

  • Does not stick to skin or hair:
    1. The material does grip to itself strongly, but will not pull at, or irritate, skin or hair when you’re removing it.
  • Cohesive wraps are stretchy and offer variable levels of support
  • Offer flexibility during application
    1. You can apply it with very light support or stretched tightly to provide heavy compression to, for example, a bleeding wound.
    2. You can provide added support by layering the wrap
  • Stays put until removed and can be reused and re-applied:
    1. Cohesive wraps never lose their stick. You can always re-do the wrapping if it wasn’t quite right the first time and re-apply.
    2. Will not absorb water or sweat and retains its stickiness
  • Cohesive wraps have an easy tear both along length and width for quick and easy use.

The uses for cohesive wraps in the veterinary and animal health market include:

  • Supporting muscles & limbs
  • Post-operative wrapping
  • Protective wrapping during animal transport
  • Positioning splints, stirrups, bits, patches, medical products, gauze
  • Wrapping torn shoes (equine)
