|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

|Subject: chin wound issues Wed Mar 30, 2016 7:30 pm|| |
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?
