Description

There are many options for coverage of cutaneous defects in dogs and cats. In comparison to horses and humans,
our small companion animals have the type of skin that can be extensively manipulated to achieve a robust and
enduring closure, rewarding for both veterinarian and client. Whenever a significant reconstructive effort is
contemplated, the veterinarian must ensure that,
1) the owner is committed and invested,
2) the animal can tolerate the proposed reconstruction, and
3) you possess the skill to optimize a successful outcome.
This lecture will introduce you to a few of the more commonly utilized tension-relieving techniques used in
veterinary specialist practice. Not all wounds will be able to be closed by tension-relieving techniques, but many
will be amenable to these closures and complications such as wound dehiscence will be minimized.
