This answer was rated:

Hi, he has cut his side, it's not too deep, but fur is parted and raw underneath, he is walking fine, just a bit quieter than normal, I have sprayed with dog antiseptic, will it heal on its own
Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is the dog bleeding a lot?
Customer: No, it hasn't really bled at all
Assistant: Phew. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** he is 4 in October
Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fudge?
Customer: No, he's healthy
