A tail injury developed into a chronic, necrotic wound exposing the tail bone in a Lurcher dog. The wound was debrided, dressed with Intracyte (hydro-gel) and covered with a syringe vial to stop the dog from knocking the wound. After 4 weeks of treatment the wound remained un-healed. No debridement or rinsing was undertaken. SertaSil was applied once and the wound was left undressed, but covered with a hard syringe vial to avoid knocking it. After two weeks, and without any further treatment, the wound had healed, covering the bone and the hair was starting to grow back again on the tip of the tail.
Nancy Homewood: “So far seem to be seeing much reduced healing time and quick action using SertaSil. Ease of application and it also is very handy to apply to wounds that cannot be dressed.”
