Bharathraj.S.V | B. N. Nagaraja 
Abstract: The studies on comparative evaluation of wound healing between the surgically excised and zap strap applied tumour wounds of skin and subcutaneous tumours in dogs was carried out in twelve clinical cases of dogs. Group-A dogs were subjected to surgical excision of the tumour and Group-B dogs were subjected to zap strap application at base of tumour mass. Seroma formation, wound dehiscence and reoccurrence were noticed in two animals subjected to surgical excision of the tumour. The wound healing of the zap strap applied tumour wounds was found to be the most effective method for skin and subcutaneous tumours in dogs as, none of the animals showed recurrence during the period of study.
