The development of VetkinTape® veterinary kinesiology tape was possible thanks to our own production possibilities. THYSOL teamed up with veterinary professionals to develop a special tape for animals, giving the same results as CureTape®, but then exclusively for animals. We have the human as well as the veterinary knowledge and expertise at our own R&D facilities.

What is VetkinTape® veterinary kinesiology taping?

In most of the cases the results obtained with using CureTape® can also be obtained with animals. Veterinary kinesiology tape needs to be slightly different due to the differences in skin/hair, muscles structure and anatomy. Furthermore, we see differences in diagnosed problems and in the frequency of occurrence. All these factors were taken into consideration when developing this new innovative veterinary kinesiology tape. The result is VetkinTape®; a tape that sticks well and gives the maximum results for animals.

VetkinTape® applications

In practice we have seen that VetkinTape® can be used to assist in: kinesiology-taping-course-equineInjured muscles – VetkinTape® lifts the skin from the underlying tissues. This can effect of reducing pain, promoting circulation, assisting in the reduction of any swelling and enhancing the blood flow to the injured muscle. Biomechanical dysfunction – VetkinTape® can provide support or stability without restricting the range of motion. Postural dysfunction – VetkinTape® can improve the proprioceptive feedback to the area thereby assisting in the retraining of muscles that maintain correct posture. It doesn’t necessarily make a horse’s performance better than at baseline, but it can improve endurance as the increased circulation can assist to improve the supply of oxygen to muscles and with the removal of the lactic acid. It can also improve recovery time after intense training sessions or races, as the increased circulation assists in the removal of waste products. Medical Taping can be used either as a sole or as an adjunctive treatment in equine therapy throughout the rehabilitation process. Continue reading about applications of equine kinesiology tape >>

VetkinTape is a medical tape designed specifically for veterinary use. It is an adhesive tape made from a breathable, waterproof, and hypoallergenic material.

Although some tape colours are exclusive to some of the sizes VetkinTape, the specifications of the products are the same regardless of the color. Selecting multiple colors for a single application can help to create a visual representation of the tape placement. Ultimately, colour choice is a matter of personal preference.

VetkinTape® can be used on different coat lengths with the right surface preparation, stretching, and technique. The amount of stretch applied must be appropriate for each application to be successful. You will need to use more stretch on longer coats and less stretch on shorter coats. VetkinTape is designed to stick to fur, not skin, so when taping an animal that has recently been groomed (such as a horse or dog), you should be extra careful. In some cases pre-taping spray might come in handy.

In theory VetkinTape® can be applied to any animal. However, most people apply it on either horses or dogs. But we have seen applications on cats, camels and even lizards over the years!

Kinesiology tape for animals can provide support and stability to an animal’s joints and muscles, reduce the risk of injury, and help the animal to heal from current injuries.

Kinesiology tape for animals is generally safe and has no known side effects. However, it is important to consult with a veterinarian or rehabiltation specialist before applying tape to an animal yourself. Proper application is very important for it to work well.
