Re: Need some ideas
Apparently, the wound is itching sooo much that your poor dog has to scratch it (that's the biting). Either he is allergic to the material with which the wound was closed, or the healing itself of the skin is itching.
I would buy a good creme that helps prevent the itching. Ask a vet or go to a homeopathic store. Good skin-friendly creames (for people) usually contain marigold, which is exellent.
Another possibility is: Aloe Vera.
If you can buy a small plant, just take one branch off and squeeze the gel-like sap oput of it. Apply this to the wound. (it is not toxic and won't hurt the dog at all!).
If you can't find this plant, try the homeopathic store for an Aloe Vera cream or gel. It should give your dog a lot of relief!
