A dog had a 9 cm2 hot spot on the head. The dog was to appear in an exhibition and therefore the area was not shaved, but only loose hairs removed. The area was cleansed and SertaSil applied. At check-up eight hours later, healing was clearly in progress showing contraction of the wound edges. The wound was left untouched. 12 and 24 hours later SertaSil was applied to any moist areas after which the wound was left undisturbed. Over the next week, the crust-like surface gradually fell off revealing new skin. After a week, the wound was completely healed.
