Background: Ethacridine lactate (Rivanol) has been used as an antibacterial drug in the treatment of infected wounds formany years. Although Manuka honey has been used in the treatment of burns, ulcers and infected wounds in human medicine for many years, its use in veterinary medicine is new. Manuka honey has been found to provide rapid cicatrizationand lower chronic pain levels, to prevent bad odor, and has antibacterial properties. The aim of this study was to comparethe effects of Etacridine lactate and Manuka honey in the treatment of infected wounds in cats.Materials, Methods & Results: In this study, 32 cats, with infected wounds in different areas on their body, were used.Cats were divided into two groups. The Rivanol group (n = 16) consisted of 6 female and 10 male cats aged 4 ± 3 yearsfrom different breeds and in several weights. Manuka group (n = 16) consisted of 7 male and 9 female cats of differentbreeds and weight and aged 4 ± 2 years. Rivanol was applied to the first group and Manuka honey (Manuka Nd, G) wasapplied to the second group. First measurements were recorded after the surgical debridement of the wound area. Fourmeasurements were made every 3 days. The size (length - width) of the wounds was measured and recorded. ParenteralMarbofloxacin was administered orally in all cases. In order to prevent the contact of the cases with the dressing, the collar was worn. In the Rivanol group, when the first measurement values (length: 4.29 ± 2.78 cm, width: 2.13 ± 0.58 cm)and the 4th measurement values (length: 2.21 ± 1.37 cm, width: 1.06 ± 0.41 cm) were compared, there was a decrease inthe wound size. In the Manuka group, when the first measurement values (length 2.84 ± 1.51 cm, width: 2.01 ± 1.03cm)and the 4th measurement values (length: 1.42 ± 1.10 cm, width: 0.90 ± 0.72cm) were compared, the wound sizes werediminished as in the Rivanol group. In all measurement...
