The most common wounds in dogs include abrasions, lacerations, and puncture wounds. Proper care is vital to ensuring your dog's health and preventing infection or disease. Assisi Animal Health lists four wound care tips for dogs:
1. Keep it clean. Be sure to strictly follow your veterinarian's instructions on proper wound hygiene. Keeping the area clean is one of the most important steps in wound care to inhibit bacteria from entering the open site. Some cases may need antibacterial soap and water, while others may require topical ointments or other antibiotic treatments during cleaning.
2. Dress it up. After cleaning, you will need to re-dress the wound and keep it completely covered. Leaving the wound open allows for disease-carrying bacteria to enter as the dog walks around both indoors and outdoors. The compressive quality of the bandages also reduces any bleeding that may occur.
3. Prevent irritation. Dogs love to lick their wounds. It's helpful in some ways, as their saliva positively influences their immune system, but is harmful in other ways due to the irritation it may cause. If necessary, and at the instruction of your vet, consider using a restrictive cone or increasing the layers of bandaging and spraying with Bitter Apple to prevent any further aggravation.
4. Treat with therapy. Various therapies have proven successful in treating wounds and promoting the healing process. Among them is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, as well as targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy from products such as the Assisi Loop®.
Assisi Animal Health's clinical solutions complete the Circle of Care® — the collaboration of veterinarians and owners in animal health and healing.
