Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. It probably isn't an emergency, but there is a risk of infection if not already set in. If he is bothering it a lot by licking at it, I would recommend getting him into the vet today if possible. If you cannot, I would get a cone collar that extends a couple of inches past his nose to keep him from licking at it. The vet would be able to clip it back and give him some antibiotics and pain medications to start the healing process faster, though. I would be happy to look at a picture if you can post it or attach it to your next message. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
Hello. I was just following up to see how your Heeler is doing and to see if you have further questions.
