Abstract

Bacterial infection is an important aspect in skin diseases in animals, including cats and dogs. This could be arise from skin lesion with poor subsequent attention and treatment. Use of antibiotic could enhance the antibiotic resistance problem of the society. Here we have demonstrated that a microbial fermentation product produced by beneficial bacteria could show in vitro growth inhibitory activity on Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. In vivo consented clinical trial on animals including cat and dog further demonstrated that this microbial fermentation product could induce recovery of wound with bacterial infection as well as clot formation and hair growth. We believe that this novel microbial fermentation product could be used as a therapeutic supplement for wound healing treatment.
