A horse had a severe wire wound with extensive soft tissue damage to the foot. The wound had been treated with manuka honey for several weeks. It granulated well and decreased in size. However, healing slowed down and finally stopped contracting in spite of continued use of honey, leaving an area near the hoof still open. SertaSil was applied to the area. Within 24 hours the wound had shrunk very significantly and healing progressed well. The first picture shows the wound just after start of application. The second picture is taken 48 hours later.
