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.
Well, I took her to the vet, just to make sure everything was healing fine. The scaring has already set in, they said they could still do a cosmetic surgery that would cost us between 300-500 dollar because the ear most likely will look funny after it healed all up but since the scaring set in, they would have to losen up the skin and then stitch it back together and I was like "Nah, I don't care too much about cosmetics. 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.
