Abstract:
This study was design to compare wound healing properties of traditional healing agent povidone with propolis in respect to histopathological differences. The study was conducted on 12 dogs more than 8 month of age, divided into two groups having 6 dogs in each. The animals of group 1 were treated with propolis ointment and the animals of group 2, treated with povidone iodine dressing for 7 consecutive days. A tissue was harvested from the wound area by pinch biopsy method on 0, 7th and 14th day and histology was performed by using H&E and Van Geison staining technique. Better histopathological change was shown by group 1 as compare to group 2 with hyperplasic regenaration of stratum corneum, showed marked re-epithelialization, well organized granulation tissue, and reduction in inflammation. Therefore propolis showed better healing response in infected wound healing in dogs as compared to povidone iodine.
