This tape was exactly what I expected.

Worked perfectly! Used it for a rectal prolapse on a ewe lamb. Saved the lambs life and the remainder of my sons show season.

As missionaries to Haiti, we insert 2-12 inch pieces of this product into kits to be used in home births. It is perfect.

Used this product to hold a bandage in place against an elbow. Vet placed loose loops of suture material around the wound and the umbilical tape was threaded through the loops, against the gauze to hold dressing in a very moveable area. Wonderful product and Premier shipped it very quickly.
So much easier to use than the clamps! Very pleased!
