Ask your vet about Carrasyn wound gel. It's what the vet gave us for Sierra when her and Jax got into a fight. It keeps the wound moist and helps heal. You can get it from Amazon too but you'll want it fairly quick and your vet should have it.

Just hope it's not going to be a bloodear."
The scar will give her character, LOL.

For Doggie dad: antibiotics are birth control for bacteria.
They work by stopping reproduction, and your immune system is then able to destroy them.
However, they wreak havoc on the entire body and I like to use the oral ones as a last resort on skin problems, and try treating topically first with disinfectants.

Disinfectants and antibiotics do both kill bacteria. A disinfectant is for use on surfaces and outside the body, examples are bleach and iodine. Antibiotics are generally for use internally, such as penicillin.

I was very skeptical about the claims of that product but it really does a great job.

i prefer betadine as that is what we use in the er and or. if there was a flap, i would have glued it, liquid stitches" after cleaning, then let it heal on its own.

RedR327 - I still like the Carrasyn better. It's not such a mess to work with.

That's for cleaning ears?

EMT Gel and Carrasyn are wound products. The EMT Gel has collagen in it and dries on. Carrasyn keeps the wound moist so it doesn't scar as much and heals better.
