Honey bandage for a bad laceration

November 17, 2009

The power of honey. This dog had neck trauma that led to necrosis of a large are of skin on the back of her neck. After the skin sloughed off, honey bandages were used to promote new tissue growth, as well as inhibit the growth of bacteria. It worked amazingly well and she is now pretty much all healed up! Just waiting for some hair to grow back to cover the site.

This was one week after the dead skin had sloughed off. The wound has had a week of honey bandaged and is visibly smaller. Original wound was a third again as big as it is in this picture

Good grief, you don't want your own dog to be the subject of a set of BEBT photos! Glad Blue is doing better! Scary to hear that there was a fight like that between two dogs who had gotten along so well for so long. Now I'm off to Google "honey bandages."

It's gonna get worse to be on the BEBT page, as the recent three "interesting" cases that caught my attention all had bad endings: FeLV, cancer, and hypoadrenocorticism. I've been delaying as all were significant efforts that went unrewarded. :-(
