How best to clean open wound?
Murphy strikes again! Just found an open wound on Gryff's side - something I would take him to the vet to get checked out, but it is Christmas eve!!! He is not in pain, I cleaned out the dried blood, trimmed away the hair. About the size of a quarter, 1/8 inch deep? Wound is not bleeding - looks pink and moist.
Does not look infected, does not seem to bother him - how best to clean it? Alcohol or Tea Tree oil would sting like crazy! I have 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, can I just poor some of that in there? Won't it damage the healthy tissue?
He either got bit when rough-housing with Keeta, or snagged on something bombing around outside . . . At least, he is good about handling and hands-on care.
Thanks for taking time out of your holiday to give some advice!
