hore with bite wound on neck

Species: horse
Gender: female
Age: 2 YO
Name: Daya San
Species: horse
Gender: female
Age: 2 YO
Name: Daya San

Clinical case:

Daya San was found with a wound on both sides of the neck-jugular area, probably caused by a

bite. She was given antibiotics, anti-tetanus serum, and anti-inflammatory drugs. During her visit to the clinic, Daya San presented a subcutaneous emphysema on the neck and swelling in the chest, neck, and face. A large amount of exudate with necrotic tissue. Trachea and jugular visible.

Therapy:

The wound was protected by paraffin gauze dressings and medicated with calendula. The prescribed treatment was an oral antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory drug, and an anti-oedema. The dressing was changed daily. Treatment with MLS® Laser Therapy was started on the 5th day and ended on the 24th when the horse returned home. Treatment with MLS® activated the biological functions of the skin enough to heal a wound of that size.

Results:

The wound was almost completely closed after 89 days. Thanks to MLS®, no keloid developed during treatment, giving optimal cicatrization.
