Clinical Uses

WIS from Abbott Animal Health have multiple clinical uses, including

  • Blood draws
  • Delivery of I.V. fluids
  • Delivery of injectable drugs or other medications such as atropine
  • Venous access during anesthesia


Abbott Animal Health designed the WIS to be a cost-effective way to have venous access during anesthetic procedures when indwelling catheters are not used. Their benefits, however, go beyond cost and include:

  • Versatility and efficiency, with multiple clinical uses for one device
  • Less restraint and less preparation for insertion, as compared to indwelling catheters, reduces stress on the patient when rapidly delivering fluids or medication intravenously
  • Dependable venous access allowing the staff to be proactive versus reactive in an emergency situation
  • Supplied by Abbott Animal Health who supports a portfolio of products for veterinary use only
