Wound healing in native poultry birds

Abstract: In developing countries, the cutaneous wounds can impose considerable economic burdens on farmers. If the wound is left untreated may lead to secondary bacterial infection and maggot infestation. Sometimes the wounds can result in life-threatening septicaemia. Hence effective therapies are required to handle the wound in order to prevent its potential complications. There are many natural phototherapeutic agents which have medicinal properties and promote tissue healing. The anti-microbial activity of Sarala resin, anti-inflammatory property of Tailaparna leaves and tissue regeneration ability of Devadaru bark, promote wound healing. Numerous studies have demonstrated the ability of Oxytetetracycline (OTC) and Gentian violet to heal wounds. In this study, Group 1 and Group 2 birds with wounds were applied topically with a spray 1 combination of Sarala resin, Tailaparna leaves and Devadaru bark and spray 2 which included OTC+ Gentian violet. The results have shown spray 1 healed wound significantly more quickly and effectively than spray 2. To our knowledge, no research has compared spray 1 (Sarala resin, Tailaparna leaves, and Devadaru bark) with spray 2 (Gentian violet and OTC). Additional in-depth research in this area will facilitate the application of medicinal plants for the treatment of cutaneous wounds in animals.
