Hello, I know it's been a while, but when I thought of who to talk to you, I thought of all you guys!
Timber has had a few small wounds on his chin for 2-3 weeks now. I think maybe puncture wounds, but not sure- he can play pretty rough sometimes and he takes it as well as gets it good.
I have been putting Vetericyn Plus Hydrogel on it a few times a day and it heals pretty good, but every time I took him to the dog park, it would re-open, bleed again and blood would get on the other dogs and on his legs, etc. so, I haven't taken him to the dog park in about a week, it's looking good. then on saturday, him and my nephew were running around and they accidently collided and Timber face planted him and the scab ripped off and it bled a lot for how small it was, so we're back to square one. yesterday it was looking pretty good, but I didn't want to chance taking him to the dog park and opening the wound again, so I didn't. this am, when I checked it, it looked worse, like he had bumped it on something in the night and it had been bleeding again.
It's not a terrible wound, and it's not infected, but he's had it for like 3 weeks now and I don't know how to keep it protected while it heals. it's literally right under his mouth, on his chin, so he could rub it on toys or anything when he's playing. I can't put a bandage there
I tried liquid bandage, but you need like 3 coats of that stuff and he did not like it !! he flipped out and we barely got one coat on - it stinks, so I'm sure he didn't want that near his nose.
any idea on how to protect it?
