EQUINE APPLICATION EXAMPLE
DP Wound Dressing Application
The hair was closely clipped to approximately five inches (12.7 cm) from the wound, and the hide thoroughly washed and dried before applying the dressing to ensure proper adhesion.  A 5” x 6” (12.7 cm x 17.9 cm) DP Wound Dressing was applied, and a fly sheet was placed over the horse to prevent gnawing at the dressing.  After seven days, the horse was desensitized to the dressing and the fly sheet was no longer needed.  Daily care included twice daily cleaning of the wound with a 10% iodine solution and mechanical debridement.  Beginning on day 25, a smaller DP Wound Dressing was used. 
Results
The wound did not require a drain as originally thought.  There was a 45% reduction in wound size within a 12 day period, and a 77% reduction by the 29th day.  Within a three month period, the wound was completely healed, and showed no visible scarring.
CANINE APPLICATION EXAMPLE
Condition
A ten-year old male Sheltie suffered a mast cell tumor on the left caudal.  An incision was made down to the first muscular fascia.  After taking fairly wide margins, the incision measured 8 cm x 4 cm.  The wound was closed at corners where possible, but otherwise the wound was open.
DP Wound Dressing Application
An anti-microbial material was applied and held in constant contact with the wound by the DP Wound Dressing.  “The DP Wound Dressing kept the [anti-microbial material] in direct contact with the wound, and because of the dynamic design helped in relieving the wound tension.”
Results
The wound was completely healed in 60 days.  “Normally, I would have expected this time frame to be much longer.”
Condition
A three-year old Paint gelding incurred a laceration to the left buttock that required sutures to the subcutaneous tissue and the hide.  Constant rubbing of the sutured area caused the wound to open resulting in evisceration of the hypodermis and muscle tissue in the lower quadrant.
