The old saying goes: “There’s more than one way to skin a cat”. Well, there’s also more than one way to close the skin on a cat (or a pig’s foot); stapling the skin edges together is one. This video from Dr. Joe Alton and Nurse Amy Alton comes as a sequel to their recent video on closing skin lacerations with sutures. Of course, this video is for informational purposes only. if there’s a hospital and surgeon nearby, don’t try to do this at home!
