  • Case Study 17 - George - Laceration to neck

    Poor George sustained a nasty laceration to his neck after being hit by a car.  The wound was neatly stitched up but when the stitches burst, George's owner, Ginny, enquired about Equaide.  We recommended that the wound be cleansed daily with a saline solution, dabbed dry and Equaide applied.  Due to the location of the wound, bandaging was not an option.  The series of photos that follow show the remarkable recovery that George has made.  The first image was taken on 10/11/14 (five days before Equaide was first applied).  The final image was 16/02/15. And, finally, a picture of handsome...

  • Case Study 15 - Garbo (facial injury)

    Garbo's injuries were due to cattle breaking through a hedge into her field, with her subsequently following them back into theirs. A fencer had left an unfinished job across that field . He had put up posts and a single strand of barbed wire 4ft above the ground which Garbo had run into. So close to her eyes! There was an area of exposed bone, prior to application of Equaide.  From start to finish just one 2oz tub of Equaide was used to treat this injury. Thanks to Rosalind Summers for the photos and updates.

  • Case Study 14 - Shannon

    Shannon sustained an injury which was stitched but later developed proud flesh.  Shannon had two laser treatment sessions and the Vet wanted to cut away the proud flesh and perform skin grafts.  Shannon's owner decided to try Equaide before going down the invasive route.  The following series of photos shows the healing progression: The first photo is the day after the injury.  The next was two weeks later after the first application of Equaide (May 2014).   The next 6 pics taken at weekly interviews.  Photo no. 9 was taken at 12 weeks.  The final photo was taken in August 2014...

  • Case Study 9 - Pepper (the pug x boston terrier pup)

    Pepper is a 9 month old pug x boston terrier with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.  This is a disease characterized by deficient levels of collagen, the protein molecule necessary for providing strength and elasticity to the skin and ligaments, along with much of the rest of the body. Collagen is the “glue” that holds the body together. A lack of collagen will result in abnormal collagen synthesis and fiber formation.  The lack of collagen affects the structure of the skin. Without elasticity, the skin does not return to the body when it has been stretched away from the body, eventually drooping...

  • Case Study 8 - Flint the Dog

              My lurcher, Flint (first photo!), skinned his side whilst trying to jump a wire fence.   The deep wound (2nd photo) needed to be kept bandaged to stop him licking at it and I used Equaide in conjunction with a course of oral antibiotics prescribed by my Vet.  Despite wearing an "Elizabethan" collar, Flint has become an expert at removing his dressings which disturbs the wound bed.  Regardless, the progress has been remarkable as evidenced in the photos which were taken on 25/04/13, 01/05/13, 07/05/13 and 11/05/13.
