Treating a Cut on Your Dog?

This afternoon my Foxie jumped up to get a Frisbee that landed in a tree or shrub. He caught his underbelly coming down and has a cut about 2 cm long. I have cleaned it and put on Betadine.

Please watch this carefully and do not let your sweet baby lick the Betadine. Do you have a "cone of shame" you can use to prevent licking/scratching?

If it continues to bleed, if it doesn't start to knit together after today, and if the dog is crying or acting like he is in pain, please get him to the vet (or emergency vet since it is almost the weekend).

Most cuts heal quickly and I will send up a prayer that Foxie heals fast. Please keep an eye on this.

PS, our vet never suggests Betadine, but if yours does, then follow his/her instructions. If you can call and get feedback of what to use overnight, I would do that!

I would call the vet just to get guidelines on how to take care of the cut and when/if to bring him in.

Continue to monitor the cut. A couple times throughout the day clean area and apply antiseptic/ointment until fully healed.

If the cut does not get better, contact your vet.

You will need to keep this area clean at all times and maybe need to put a bandage on it. Depending on how deep the cut is you may need to use butter fly stitches on this to close it up. If you need to do this the dog will lick at it and remove the bandage and what you have done.

To prevent him from doing this one you'll need to put a cone around his head so he can not do this. Change the bandage and dressing each day to make sure it is healing and not turing red around the cut area.
