dc.description.abstract Honey represents a valuable product, which has been widely used for its therapeutic benefits in various disease conditions. Moreover, honeydew honey has been scientifically recognised for its antioxidant, anti- microbial and wound healing properties and it is used clinically, as a topical treatment for wound infections. In addition to this, a plethora of studies have revealed that propolis, sea buckthorn essential oil and thyme essential oil are basic aids in the treatment of wounds and other skin conditions. The aim of the present research was to determine the clinical effectiveness of two natural dressings, based on honeydew honey, combined either with soft propolis extract and thyme essential oil, either with sea buckthorn essential oil, with the purpose of minimizing the antibioresistance phenomenon within the small animal clinics. Their therapeutic value has been evaluated in feline and canine distinct types of cutaneous wounds, by topical application. The honeydew honey, soft propolis extract and sea buckthorn essential oil were provided by "Apilife Sibiu" company, located in Romania, while the thyme essential oil was purchased from "Young Living" company. The products were applied on uncomplicated acute and complicated cutaneous wounds in dogs and cats. In the treatment of six patients with uncomplicated acute wounds, we found an inceased efficacy of the dressing containing honeydew honey and sea buckthorn essential oil, while in the treatment of six patients with complicated cutaneous wounds, the dressing based on honeydew honey, soft propolis extract and thyme essential oil has proven to be highly effective. All in all, based on the results obtained in conjunction with other studies in the field, we recommend the implementation of apicultural products with addition of essential oils in the prevention and therapy of various forms of cutaneous wounds in animals. en_US
