Hello! Thanks for using Just Answer. My name is***** I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. I am sorry to hear Maya has this abrasion.
Can you post a picture of this here for me to see?How long has it been there?
I see. Can you post a picture of it?
That is OK. Is it deep?
You can clean the area with mild soap and water, and then dry it. Then apply some topical antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin or triple antibiotic. Keep him from licking the area for a few minutes so the ointment can be absorbed.
That would be the website's email, not mine, so I won't see it.
Get any over the counter cream from a chemist that is made for people that is an antibiotic. If this abrasion seems inflamed or itchy, you can also apply a little 1% cortisone cream. It is also made for people and should be at a chemist.
A cream made for people will work.
That might be OK. Let me look up what is in it.
There are phenols in TCP and savlon. These should be OK in very small amounts but in large amounts are not recommended.
I would use the silver cream over the TCP and savlon. Just a little, and don't let him lick it for a few minutes.
Maybe twice daily.
Sounds good. Please let me know how Maya is doing.
It could delay healing but it should eventually heal.
Good question! Until it heals, I would walk her just enough to get her to defecate and urinate.
Dogs tend to pull off bandages.
Please let me know how she is doing and if you have other questions.
