Treating burned animals with fish (tilapia) skins

Photo via Reddit.  I had to Google to find a mainstream story in People.
When it became clear that Archer [the burn victim dog] would need more help to heal than she could provide, Dr. Oakley reached out to Dr. Jamie Peyton, a burn specialist at The University of California, Davis, for advice. The specialist recommended a newer treatment, where the skins from tilapia are placed on burns to promote healing, and even came up to the Archer’s hometown to show Dr. Oakley how the treatment worked...
The Chicago Tribune reported in January that Dr. Oakley was headed to Australia to help out with treatment of animals burned in the wildfires there.
