Case Study #2

A Veterinarian had been trying to heal an eye ulcer for 3 – 4 months prior to initiating therapy with Lacerum PDGF. Not only an ulcer, the eye had ruptured prior to the Lacerum PDGF arrival.  Veterinarian saw a change in 3 days. “Granulation tissue like” growth and a “reactive” appearance was immediate. Within 2 – 3 weeks it was almost gone.  Lacerum PDGF sealed the ruptured cornea and then promoted overall healing.The ulcer and hole are completely gone (time to heal: 30 – 35 days).

Case Study #5

Patient had a mast-cell tumor on front leg. It was treated with radiation and chemotherapy. The tumor and surrounding tissue fell out leaving a huge open wound which could not be surgically repaired. The patient also had diabetes, which contributed to the wound not healing as planned. This non-healing infected wound impacted the patient’s blood sugar so regulation of insulin was difficult. Systemic antibiotics were used for several months without success.
