Abstract


Wound healing is a complex cellular, pathophysiological and biochemical cascade of sequence resulting in reconstruction, remodeling as well as regeneration of injured tissues. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of essential oil based polyherbal spray on wound repair. Seven horses with accidental wounds were treated with a topical application of an essential oil based polyherbal spray, under field conditions. When compared with a contra-lateral control (therapy regime included conventional topical antibiotic dressing), the phytogenic spray succeeded in an early and healthy reconstruction of the wound site. This phytogenic spray also worked as a fly repellent and prevented myiasis. It was concluded that the topical use of phytogenic spray is not only effective, safe and simple, but also reduces the otherwise physiological body burden of antibiotics in horses.
