About the course

Wounds come in all shapes and sizes; clean or dirty; recent or old; simple or complicated - involving other structures or vital organs.

There clearly isn't a 'one size fits all' treatment for wounds: which wounds can be flushed and sutured, which ones will need debridement - and how best to debride? And what advice do you give the owner regarding healing time and cost? What options are there?

This lecture attempts to provide a practical approach to wounds, from the triage and initial assessment, through stabilisation, to final stages of treatment. 

Dealing with wounds can be one of the most satisfying, exciting aspects of veterinary nursing, providing a plan can be made for dealing with the healing process - and dealing with noncompliant patients and owners!
