Abstract | This is a case report describing application of Amniotic Membrane (AM) in the treatment of penetrated dog’s bite wounds in two sheep. The AM was collected from a goat during caesarean section and inserted into the bite injuries after preparation. Both cases were followed up until healing. Complete regeneration with normal histological features was evident after six weeks.An interesting effect of AM on regeneration of the bite wounds was apparent and to our knowledge, this is the first report concerning treatment of dog’s bite wounds by AM.
