Abstract

The study was carried out to determine the histological characterizations of wound healing in cats. For the purpose, 24 feral/stray with mean age of 7 to 33 months and body weight between 1.72 to 4.02 kg cats were selected and divided in 4 subgroups. Ovariohysterectomy was performed in all the cats. The cats operated through flank approach healed earlier and histological characterization showed better wound healing through flank in adult cats. All the cats did not heal on the 12th day, and the trend of healing showed bit maturation. Parameters studied are histological characterization of wound healing were acute inflammation, chronic inflammation, granulation tissue amount, granulation tissue amount and fibroblast maturation, collagen deposition, re-epithelization and neovascularization.
