Abstract

Full-thickness, cutaneous autografting was successfully performed on an adult female ostrich to heal a granulomatous wound on the right tarsus. With surgical techniques used in domestic species such as dogs and horses, skin grafting is an alternative in avian species when conventional wound closure is not appropriate.
