Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I am sorry to hear your dog has open wounds. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
The antibiotic cream is a good idea, but I would not wrap these wounds. It may help to use warm moist compresses for a few minutes twice daily.
If these are from fighting or being bitten, he may need to be on antibiotics. Teeth can drive bacteria deep below the skin where your topical antibiotics can't reach. If the swelling gets worse even with you using warm moist compresses he may need to see a vet to get antibiotics.
How is he doing? I hope you were able to see my answer.
