Technology that Saves Lives... One Dog at a Time.
UltraVet Medical Devices is a veterinary medical device company dedicated to enhancing the ways that veterinary cardiologists, pulmonologists and other specialty veterinary professionals treat Their patients.
We do this through our mission: to achieve world class leadership in the development of patented, trademarked medical devices unique in the veterinary medical profession. UltraVet devices are designed for non-invasive surgical procedures that replace open heart surgery, respiratory procedures and other difficult surgeries that are also very expensive in comparison.
Headed by UltraVet founder Dr. George Kramer, the company has developed designs for implantable transcatheter interventional devices with areas of application comprised of cardiovascular (CoApt Valve® & Tucker Valve™), respiratory (Bronchial Stent) and urologic uses. The various devices were designed to treat common problems in veterinary medicine that are difficult to treat using currently available treatments. Conditions that we are targeting to be treated with our devices include degenerative mitral and tricuspid valve disease, congenital heart diseases, bronchial collapse, and urinary incontinence.
Our ultimate goal for our latest veterinary medical device, The CoApt Valve®, is to provide a solution to loving dog owners that can successfully treat dogs with severe degenerative valve disease and can result in significantly extending the dog’s life expectancy and quality of life.
Happiness is a healthy and happy pet.
The Coapt Valve®
The CoApt Valve® is one of the veterinary medical devices we are currently working on. It is a transcatheter valve device which can be used to treat dogs with degenerative mitral/tricuspid valve disease.
The Tucker Valve™
The Tucker Valve™ is one of the veterinary medical devices currently in our development pipeline. It is a transcatheter valve device which can be used to treat dogs with degenerative mitral/tricuspid valve disease.
