Hi, I can help you with your question today.
First, do not use peroxide on deep wounds like this, it can damage deep tissue and slow healing.
1) How much does Molly weigh?
2) What antibiotic are you giving?
3) What dose (in mg)?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
2- 350 MG pills of clavomox daily. Molly weigh about 100 lbs
Dog Veterinarian: brisadog,

OK, that dose of Clavamox is too low. Give two tablets every 12 hours for a girl her size.
I also recommend flushing the wounds with iodine/betadine 2-3 times daily for about 3 days. I would expect it to look and smell better by then. If it does not improve, if she is painful, swollen, or there is continued discharge, I recommend having her evaluated by your local vet. We may find that she has an infection that is resistant to the Clavamox.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
