The patient was presented with severe tissue necrosis, infection and loss of the left hind paw after being caught in a snare. The patient on presentation had undergone numerous unsuccessful corrective surgeries and each time left the patient with even more necrotic tissue and skin.

Phototherapy was done for 8 minutes, once a day for a week and thereafter once every second day. The aim was to prevent infection and further tissue necrosis and produce a good granulation tissue bed for skin transplantations.
Treatment and case study was done by Vetlight in Pretoria.

With the aid of phototherapy, no more necrosis took place and a good granulation tissue bed was present sooner than expected. The phototherapy proved to have a calming and pain relieving effect (serotonin effect); causing this wild cat to fall asleep during each of his phototherapy sessions.
