Review of Wound Treatments Available for Routine Husbandry Procedures in Grazing Animals

The complex nature of wound healing means that a single application of dressings at the time of routine on-farm surgical husbandry procedures is unlikely to contribute directly to wound healing or to prevent infection of the wound. A review of wound dressing recommendations for use in grazing animals indicates that the most common reason for application is to prevent flystrike after routine husbandry procedures such as mulesing or dehorning.

This review highlights the need to follow best practice guidelines for routine husbandry procedures to reduce the risk of subsequent complications, and to use, if necessary, only products registered for the intended purpose according to label directions.
