Breeding of medicinal leeches. The medicinal leeches supplied by our Company are bred only under laboratory conditions. Such method enables us to control storage conditions, feeding, breeding and quarantining totally. Leeches are fed only with pig’s blood, supplied by a certified Company which follow all the standards for the highest quality. Feeding of leeches depends on a size of a leech itself and other characteristics. Since a leech reaches a weight appropriate for sale, it is quarantined at least 5 months. After quarantine medicinal leeches are ready for use. Leeches are transported in special containers, which ensure ‘a freshness’ of a product.
