The navel cord acts as a siphoning passageway for disease-carrying bacteria to enter the bloodstream of newborn animals, causing joint infections, diarrhea, generalized infections, or navel infection. Llocin clamps help prevent navel infection such as Escherichia coli and Streptococci by sealing off the navel cord. Apply as soon after birth as possible. Clamp may be removed in 24-36 hours, or it will drop off of its own accord in 3-5 days. Reusable. Bag of 25.
