Clean the wound as instructed by your vet. Choose a suitable dressing size. The dressing can be folded to a suitable size and can overlap the wound edges if necessary. Remove the dressing from the packaging using an aseptic technique. Use sterile scissors if the dressing needs to be cut. Any remaining opened and unused parts of the dressing should be discarded.

Apply the dressing. Ensure that it is in direct contact with the entire wound surface. If there is a wound cavity, fold and fluff up one or more dressings and dress/fill the cavity. Avoid packing it too tightly.
Choose an occlusive dressing according to how much the wound is exuding.
- Light to moderate exudation, use Sorbact® Foam Dressing or Sorbact® Absorption Dressing.
- Severe exudation, use Sorbact® Superabsorbent.

Redressing suggestions: Re-affix with gauze, thin cotton, or Softban.

Place cotton around the leg.

Place gauze around the cotton, first loosely and then gradually tighter, to stabilize the bandage. Tie with a small knot on the front of the leg or side of the tibia to avoid pressure on the tendons.

Vetwrap: Begin with the middle of the bandage, before moving downwards and then upwards. Not too tight; you should be able to insert your finger between the bandage and the leg once you have finished. Never bind Vetwrap directly onto the fur, as it could injure the leg.

How often the dressing needs to be changed will depend on how much the wound is exuding and its general condition. If the clinical condition allows, the dressing can remain in place for up to seven days.
