Background: Ethacridine lactate (Rivanol) has been used as an antibacterial drug in the treatment of infected wounds for many 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 cicatrization and lower chronic pain levels, to prevent bad odor, and has antibacterial properties. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of Etacridine lactate and Manuka honey in the treatment of infected wounds in cats.
