Hi Dr Peter,
Thanks for your response. I am sure he would lick the wound but he can't as it is on his back.
The wound was initially a fatty lump which was investigated by the vet a few months ago. It has been getting bigger and bigger and scabbed over. I must admit that I picked it a few weeks ago and cleaned it, in the hope that it would heal itself. Yesterday I noticed it was bleeding. I cleaned it.
I can send you a photo if this will help.
I used Bob Marten dog wipes with aloe vera.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
Did you see the photo as I am not sure it attached properly.
