Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
I am sorry to hear about your dogs being bitten. I am Rebecca; I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Bite punctures tend to get infected, since bacteria from the mouth is carried deep into the muscles by the teeth. Cleaning the wound, and putting antibiotic ointment on it may help, but often these need to be treated with antibiotics.
Flushing with warm but not hot water, down into the puncture can help flush out bacteria. Warm moist compresses can help draw infection.
Let me know if this is helpful and what other questions I can answer.
I did not hear back from you! I hope you were able to see what I wrote. Let me know if you have any more questions.
