Forum Rules
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.

Yesterday we noticed a cut on Dalton's side. It's not so big that were super concerned, but big enough that I would like to treat it. We were going to take him to the vet, but since it's sunday, none of them are open. Other than the cut, he is fine, eating well, etc. any tips for covering it until we can get to a vet tomorrow? If I wrap it, I'll have to wrap around his whole mid section just to cover the tiny area.
Thanks in advance

I don't have a photo of it, but it's probably the length of a quarter, and the width of a small pamphlet... I know that's a weird way to explain it. Like I said, it's not so big that we probably need to go to the vet immediately, but I'd like to have it looked at. In the meantime, could you suggest a way to cover it?

Do you have an E vet around you? You don't want somthing that big getting infected. Use gauze to keep it covered and ACV to disinfect without drying it - I really suggest getting the dog in.

If it were my dogs i'd flush it with hydrogen peroxide, pat dry with gauze, and cover it with neosporin. That should be fine until tomorrow.

Good advice from Megan and Kristina. Is he licking it? If so, you could maybe use a t-shirt to cover it?

I hope he's better soon.

Obviously we'll get him into a vet as soon as possible. I like the t-shirt idea! Thanks!
