CRITICAL WOUND CARE IN A MINIATURE PINSCHER

Other Titles

Abstract

An approximately 9 year old male castrated Miniature Pinscher presented to the Cornell University Emergency Service on 7/22/14 for evaluation of bite wounds. Physical exam revealed severe wounds and signs of shock. The patient was stabilized and maintained in the intensive care unit on intravenous fluids, antibiotics, and aggressive pain medication. While under care, the patient experienced multiple complications associated with his trauma including anemia, hypoproteinemia, and severe tissue edema due to his inflamed state. His critical condition required constant monitoring and adjustment of his multimodal therapies. Wound care included debridement under general anesthesia, application of a vacuum assisted closure (V.A.C.) unit, and staged closure.
