Open wounds are the most frequently recorded health and welfare problem in working animals in developing countries that need proper wound dressing, as they are prone to bacterial infection. Wound dressing is one of the main external effects during the healing process of wounds. Understanding the process of wound healing and knowing the phases of wound healing is vital to intervene in the management of open wounds. It is based on repeated bandaging and debridement as needed sugar dressings, honey dressings, wound lavage, wound debridement, and using antiseptics. Besides, antibiotic treatment is necessary to avoid secondary bacterial complications and Natural polymers such as polysaccharides and derivatives (e.g., carboxymethyl cellulose, alginates, chitosan, and heparin), proteoglycans, and proteins (e.g., collagen, gelatin, fibrin, and keratin) facilitate the healing process. The development of wound dressing materials is the main objective of this paper, which will provide general information on future wound dressing materials.
