QUANTITATIVE DETERMINATION OF THE BACTERIAL CONTAMINATION OF THE DOGS` INFECTED WOUNDS DURING THE TREATMENT
In modern clinical surgery it is considered that every wound is contaminated and infected by bacteria. Contamination can be primary and secondary . The primary contamination of the wounds takes place randomly or during gunshot injury, secondary during surgical operations and bandaging from violation of the rules of asepsis and antisepsis. The infection in wound develops when imbalance appears between inﬁ ltrated microorganisms and defense system of body appears and is accompanied by the signs of inﬂammation. From practical point of view the conversion of contaminated wound to infected depends on the degree of functional impairment of the damaged tissue and the virulence of inﬁ ltrated pathogens.
