Somehow or another Emma has really bumped her head and it has a knot and bleeding, I cleaned the wound, and she doesn't act as though it hurts, but what can I put on the cut to keep it from getting infected? Is Neosporin(sp) ok to use? Thanks.
I don't know Neosporine, but small and superficial wounds I normally clean just with water, or chamomille tea. Clean it 2 times per day.
If it starts looking weird, starts smelling or looks runny or if I detect pus in the area, I would take her to the vet. As long as the wound looks healthy (nice pink-ish edges, no dirt) and the dog acts normal and healthy (no fever, loss of appetite etc), I wouldn't worry too much.
take your dog to the Vet and have the knot checked out. you may think it's ok but why take a chance? she took quite a hit to cause a lump. any kind of lump and to the Vet we go. within 45 minutes i can be at 3 different 24 hour hosptials. after the Vet visit she'll feel better and so will you knowing she's ok.
