Wound Management

This is Roxy – a spirited and energetic 8 year-old English Setter that came to WVRC – Racine for chronic wound management with Dr. Matthew Schaefer.  She had several wounds on her paws from a previous accident that required months of wound care and two surgeries.  The last wound on her toe was very challenging because of her high energy level and high pain tolerance – in pure English Setter style, she refused to slow down.  She kept reopening the wound despite thick bandages and surgery with high strength suture. In the end, Roxy’s owner was very diligent, and we were finally able to get the wounds to heal.
