My name is***** and I will do my best to help you with your question about your dog. I'm so sorry this happened, but glad you are looking for the information you need.

How long ago did this happen?
Also, please tell me your dog's name and if he has any other medical conditions or takes any medications.
In the meantime, while I wait for your response, I'll offer the following information...
Dogs are reasonably resistant to the toxic effects of Dettol. Most of the toxicity reports regarding Dettol in dogs are cases where the dog had been ingesting quite a lot of it every day for a long period of time.
I would not expect this single incident to cause a problem for Jack. :-)
Washing it off should be all you need to do.
Just be sure to rinse thoroughly.
As far as complications from the thorn injury, watch the area for redness, swelling, drainage, or other signs of infection.
If he refuses to bear weight on the leg, I'd also want to have it checked out.
You did the most important thing already, though, by taking out the thorn and cleaning the area very thoroughly. Good work.
No bandage of any type is recommended, and if he wants to lick it, that's okay.
This is where we can count our blessings that Jack is not a cat. Dettol is much harder on cats than dogs.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Good. I'll hope Jack has a speedy recovery and is no worse for the wear.
