There have been many reports on the efficacy of the polysaccharide peptidoglycan (PG) isolated from durian hulls in assisting wound healing in pig, dog, and cat skin. In this report, a two - year - old and a three -year - old female mongrel dogs with infected open wounds and skin necrosis were treated with PG film dressing. Complete wound healing in both dogs occurred within 14 weeks of treatment. PG film dressing may effectively promotes wound healing. The results show the benefit of using PG film dressings in pharmaceutical and veterinary applications.
