If your pet gets a laceration or bite, DO NOT use hydrogen peroxide. This will cause the wound to open more. Instead use a little soap and water or, better yet, use betadine liquid. (It's about $14 a bottle, but you can use it on your wounds also.) Betadine is an antiseptic wash. As dog bites are nasty, let your vet determine if the wound should be closed. Many times they need to be left open to drain. I recently leaned this the hard and expensive way.
