    Another question! Goddamnit, if only my dogs were the same as horse, I'd be soo happy!

    Harvey got bitten on Satuday. its not deep, but drew blood. I've rinsed it with saline once on the saturday night, and yesterday morning and yesterday evening after his bath, and put savlon on it, but he keeps licking it. The cuts about 2 cm long, if that, and its really not deep. Was a chi x yorkie that bit him, and I think I caused most of the damage removing it from his leg. :(

    It's started to scab this morning, but I don't want him making it worse. But is it best to leave it be or should I put some vet wrap over it.

    Stick a buster collar on him and leave it to the air, I reckon. If you cover it, it might start getting a bit sweaty and nasty.

    Ha, we tried a collar on him last night, used the old one we had for Roo.

    Panick, panick, panick...:rolleyes:: Christ knows what we're going to do when he's neutered.

    Agree. And use wound powder rather than savlon as it helps to dry out the surface.

    Good call, didn't have any to hand on Sat but I've not put anything on it since then anyway, just left it. I did have a load for my horse but gave it away when he retired.

    Might grab some, probably be a handy thing to have.

    OH just called, says he's not been bothered with it at all today so fingers crossed its stopped stinging him. Poor little fella. :(
