Dog's fine, in Ghana mobile hospital, dressing removed from wounds (6,5)


I believe the answer is:

afghan hound

'dog's' is the definition.
(Afghan hound is an example)

'fine in ghana mobile hospital dressing removed from wounds' is the wordplay.
'fine' becomes 'f' (abbreviation).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'mobile' is an anagram indicator.
'hospital' becomes 'h' (abbreviation for hospital on maps).
'dressing removed from' means to look at the middle letters (remove the outer letters/dressing).
The central letters of 'wounds' are 'ound'.
'ghana' is an anagram of 'aghan'.
'f' going within 'aghan' is 'afghan'.
'afghan'+'h'+'ound'='AFGHAN HOUND'

(Other definitions for afghan hound that I've seen before include "Tall silky-haired dog" , "Hunting dog" .)
