Abstract:  In this case report, we highlight the benefits of Medisca CopaSil application for scar healing in a horse having sustained second-degree burn injuries covering most of its back. The application of CopaSil started three months after sustaining the burn injury when silver sulfadiazine topical cream treatment showed no significant improvement. CopaSil is formulated with ingredients that may help in reducing inflammation and accelerate healing by modulating the immune response. After using CopaSil for six months, the horse’s back was healed, and the hair began to regrow. The complete healing was achieved within six months, and full recovery was reported and confirmed by the horse’s owner and pharmacist. This case report highlights the outcomes and benefits of CopaSil in improving the appearance of scars.
