The vets are shut until monday. My chihuahua has recently come back from a knee operation. The leg that was operated on smells foul and revolting. I haven't been cleaning the wound because despite the stitches the wound hasn't healed over at all and there's big gaps between each stitch so I'm worried that if I try to clean it something might get into the wound. I'm not a vet so I'm not sure but does that mean it's a bad stitch job? Some of the fur on her leg was shaved off and that part looks red and sore and someone suggested vaseline but I'm hesitant to touch it incase its the wrong thing. I don't know what I'm doing. can dogs even have vaseline? She has to wear a cone and tries to get to that area which she can't reach. Does anyone have any recommendations on what to do.
