My dog has an open cut on his nose that will not heal. Any suggestions?

The only thing you can really do with the nose is lubricate it well and use products on the wound.

For the wound, you can use a peroxide wash (1 part peroxide to 4 parts water). Then dry it well. You can apply some neosporin or triple antibiotic ointment.

To prevent dryness, you can use a product called "Bag Balm" that is actually a moisturizer. You can get it at most walmart stores or pharmacies.

I hope this helps!
