I didn't look closely at the pictures when I suggested the Silver Shield. I would be headed for a specialist. That looks horribly painful and has a high risk of infection with all that damaged skin.

GatorBytes The Side Effects of Sentinel for Dogs | eHow


This itching is often uncontrollable and irritating or painful. Pruritis may result from the accumulation of dead or dying fleas, flea excrement or a sensitivity to Sentinel. Observe your dog and ensure that the itching does not become unbearable to the point of self-injury



  1. Urticaria

    • Urticaria, or hives, are indicators of an allergic reaction. They present as itchy, red welts and may be restricted to one area of the dog's body or the entirety of it. Hives are a rare side effect of Sentinel that did not manifest during clinical trials. If you observe hives on your dog, keep an eye out for other signs of an allergic reaction such as trouble breathing, swelling of the face, lips or tongue, biting at the paws, weakness and lethargy.

Side Effects of Sentinel for Dogs

Key Ingredients in Sentinel for Dogs

Sentinel contains lufenuron and milbemycin oxime. The active ingredients enter the dog's pores and are stored in the fat cells. When a parasite ingests blood, they receive a dose of the medications that alter their health, leading to death.


Sentinel is an oral medication, it may cause itchy skin, oily skin and hives. Shampooing your dog with an oatmeal-based pet-safe shampoo can help relieve the irritation. If the condition continues, contact your veterinarian.

no way
and even plain water will cause temporary softening but scabbing and drying over again when the water dries
Warm saline will harden as well. I've never done a warm saline compress. Simple warm washcloth held on for 10-15 minutes.

Unless a wet to dry bandage is used scabbing will return no matter what which is why repeat compress 4-5 times throughout the day until sufficient healing has occured, which is when scabbing will no longer occur and you'll simply have a soft pink tissue over the wound

antibacterial ointment would work to keep them soft or that cream you got from amazon or wherever

that would only delay healing so why would anyone do it to a dog??
smh
This allows the wound to basically heal from the inside out and prevent trapped bacteria. It's the same thing I do to my boy when his staph infection on his nose flares up.

Delayed healing often leads to clean healing when done properly

Anubis_Star You don't always want to rub antibiotic cream on wounds as it can prematurely heal surface openings while leaving deep wounds open.

You also sometimes want to leave wounds open to promote drainage and prevent infection. I don't think they meant run the garden hose over the dog. But we often tell owners to soak with a warm compress (wet wash cloth, which I would recommend in this case) and rub off or remove any forming scabs after softening and soaking them.
