Skin flap is one of the techniques use for large wound closure. This study were aimed to determine the rate of cure of skin flap H-plasty and linear closure based on subjective and objective clinical observation. Six male local cats at 1-2 years old, weighing 3-4 kg, were divided into two treatment groups. All cats were made 3 x 3 cm wound in the thoracic area for skin graft. Thoracic defects were treated with skin flap techniques H-plasty (group I) and linear closure (group II). Subjective observations was performed on days 3, 6, 9 and 12 after skin flap which was covering skin discoloration, pain response, time hair growth as well a bleeding tests that performed on the 18th day after the skin flap. Objective observation was made on day 18 by administration of 0.9% NaCland observed the absorption time, while the onset of drug effect was noticed by pupillary reflex observation after 0.2 ml adrenaline injection under the skin flap. The observation on day 9 showed that skin flap linear closure wasbetter than skin flap H-plasty, which was characterized by similar skin color with surrounding skin, reduced pain response and rapid hair growth. Bleeding blood test was showed a glowing red colored and immediately came outafter incision in both groups. The absorption time of 0.9% NaCl and the effects of adrenaline were faster in thegroup skin flap linear closure. Skin flap H-plasty and linear closure techniques can be applied to repair woundsin the thoracic area of cat skin, however, the linear closure flap of skin was healing faster than skin flap H-plasty.
