MSU Veterinarians Use Fish Skin to Heal Dog (video) Michigan State University Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption (Content warning: This video contains images that may be considered graphic.) Michigan State University veterinarians used a creative approach to treat the burns of Stella, a Rottweiler puppy, who escaped a house fire. Smoke inhalation prohibited Stella from being sedated for skin grafts, so the team from the MSU Veterinary Medical Center used cod fish skins to help heal Stella's burns. This successful treatment could help other animals.
