Clean the wound as instructed by your vet. Choose a suitable dressing size. 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 the dressing is in direct contact with the entire wound surface. The dressing should not overlap the surrounding skin. For cavities and fistulas, part of the dressing should always be left sticking out so that it can easily be removed.
Choose a suitable occlusive dressing depending on how much the wound is exuding.
- Sight 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.

Add 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 to 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.
