GONZALEZ-DOMINGUEZ, María S  and  CARMONA, Sara. Using Triticum vulgare in post-surgical treatment of chronic fibrosing interdigital pyoderma in a dog. Case report. Ces. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2014, vol.9, n.1, pp.128-138. ISSN 1900-9607.

Abstract Anamnesis and therapeutic approach: A three-year-old male English bulldog presenting an interdigital mass was surgically intervened twice, with four months interval, by excisional biopsy. After surgery the dog showed impaired healing, severe local inflammation, redness of the wound, serosanguineous secretion, and wound dehiscence. Clinical and laboratory findings: Blood chemistry and hemoleucogram results were within normal values. The pathology report indicated an initial diagnosis of chronic pyoderma and subsequent progression to deep perivascular dermatitis and perifolliculitis. Conclusions: Once the dog presented wound dehiscence after the surgical intervention, Triticum vulgare treatment (cream, four times a day/20 d) was established, which resulted in second-intention healing and clinical improvement within six to eight days after starting the treatment, with no relapse of the injury during a six month period of evaluation. This report provides evidence on the usefulness of Triticum vulgare for second-intention healing in canine patients
