What vets say

Expaniderm devices have been used widely in canine and equine applications. Some of the experiences of vets can be seen below. These will be added to over time. 


The Expaniderm expanders gave me predictable skin expansion where I needed it. The customer service at Oxtex was fantastic. A personal adviser was easy to reach by phone or email with accurate technical advice and guidance.
– Chris Morris BVSc CertSAS MRCVS RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery, Park Vet Group, Leicester
The technical support was excellent and really helped me to get the most out of the expanders. The owner was delighted with the outcome.
– Martin Law BVSc MRCVS, Shepton Vets, Shepton Mallet
The patient responded well and tolerated everything very well during the expansion process. We managed a complete excision and good primary closure. Our experience was very good and it will form part of our armoury when dealing with big lumps in tight places.
– Duncan Green BVSc MRCVS, Companion Care Canterbury


The expanders allowed me to remove a leg mass and close the defect which would have been impossible otherwise. I was impressed with how well the expanders stretched the skin, even on the distal limb. Without the expanders the wound would have taken weeks to heal. I received lots of support from the Oxtex team.
– Simon Hennessy MVB MSc Cert AVP (ESO) (ESST) MRCVS DipECVS
The Oxtex advisors were helpful in discussing the case prior to implantation and provided useful tips for placing the expanders. I was impressed with the amount of skin stretch the expanders provided. The expanders were easy to place and remove and well tolerated.
– Jane Boswell MA VetMB, CertES (orth), DipECVS, MRCVS, Liphook Equine Hospital
The expanders give me another option when dealing with difficult reconstruction cases. I have used the expanders more than once and would definitely use them again in the future.
– Debra Archer BVMS, PhD CertES (Soft Tissue) DipECVS MRCVS, Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital University of Liverpool
