This is the fifth and final installment of the Essential Wound Care Series, which provides expert tips and techniques for managing both basic and specific wound types and challenges.
Wound management can be exciting and rewarding, particularly when challenging wounds are involved. Success is best achieved through a wound management plan that provides the best patient care while meeting financial constraints of the client. In addition, veterinarians and owners need to be prepared for occasional setbacks and failures, approaching these situations with determination and a positive attitude. When a wound deteriorates or fails to heal, the easiest approach is to consider it a new wound and reformulate a plan based on the current status of site and patient.
