Sookie Thanks all! She has the bandage off for the night but I will put it back on in the morning. I'll keep it cleaned and watch it for any signs of not healing or infection; I got a bit paranoid as there was a bit on the news today about dogs dying of kidney failure after what looked like relatively minor paw and leg scrapes from something that is similar to Alabama rot. I had heard of the superglue trick but had previously reserved off-label preparation h use to get rid of bags under my eyes Sookie high-fives you for your assistance!

For people one of MY Pack items is Afrin. If you have ever banged your nose on a dry cold day and gotten a nosebleed that stuff will stop it ASAP.
My trainer adviised the same and I used craizy glue on paw cuts with a great success.

MichaelE It's only bad for around a month and then there is very little shed. She still needs combed and brushed regularly to keep her floofies and the rest of her fine hair from tangling or matting.

Poor baby and man that is a lot of fur, I can't even imagine keeping up with that!

Afrin uses the same sort of vasoconstrictor as Prep-H(some formulations). The vector/purpose of Afrin is that of constrictor in hopes less blood flow will reduce the production of mucus and inflammation.

Banjo once decided to leap through a plate glass window. It slashed one of his pads, close to the bone, probably 1/2" deep. The blood flow was astonishing. I glued him up, wrapped the paw and carted him to the e-vet. Vet had a look and pretty much said it was as good as stitches because pads are such a PITA to deal with. I kept his paw swaddled up(man, that was rough, he gnawed the wrap every time I wasn't on top of him) and after about a week he was back to his normal doggie nonsense. Took abut 3 years for the scar to vanish completely.
Who knew yet again!...Next up...

You could call your vet and ask what they think of this approach. They should be fine with it and be willing to talk to you over the phone.
Got beat to it but..who knew!

Vasoconstrictor, 'roids are nothing more than swollen vessels, painful ones at that. Prep-H has lost a lot of it's oomph over the years, guess the FDA didn't like something.

Well, looking at the ingredients of Prep-H, you can get it with a vasoconstrictor or another formula that soothes(hydrocortisone). Hydro also reduces swelling but not as effectively as phenylephrine, which is a direct action constrictor.
