Use of vacuum assisted closure in a nosocomial multi-drug resistant infection in a dog
Kubat, Jayne A.
A 3 year-old female spayed Australian Shepherd was treated at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals for a pelvic fracture and abdominal hernia after being run over by a car. The patient's facture and hernia were both surgically corrected. After developing a nosocomial multi-drug resistant infection, the patient was treated with imipenem and her abdominal incision was closed using vacuum assisted closure (VAC).
