BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Animals injured in the Camp Fire are getting a unique treatment to cure burns.
Doctors at U.C. Medical Center are using fish skins to patch burns that animals received during the deadly fire.
This is the first time that sterilized Tilapia skins are being used on dogs and cats. It acts as a substitute for animal skin to heal and relieve pain.
"This actually is going to be like a fake skin," said "So it's going to protect an open area that's missing a piece of skin from a burn and provide protection."
Doctors say that one dog's skin grew back within five days because of the treatment when it normally would have taken weeks.
So far, they have treated four dogs and four cats.
The same procedure was also done on a bear cub burned in the Carr Fire.
