NaturOTM rings being applied to unbranched antlers

For deer-friendly velvet removal

NaturO™ is a simple system for providing analgesia for velvet removal of yearling stags.

Analgesia must be achieved before velvet is removed and the removal must be performed by a registered vet or NVSB-approved person.
 
NaturO™ rings are the only ring for spiker velvet removal that has been approved by the National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (NAWAC) under the provisions of the Guidelines for the Use of Rubber Rings to induce Analgesia for the Removal of Spiker Velvet. Under the guidelines, it is prohibited to use elastrator rings or similar for velvet removal.

NaturO™ rings are suitable for unbranched antlers when applied with a NaturO™ applicator, or for branched antlers using NaturO™ cable ties.
