Hello, this is Dr RB:) Yes, I would advise you to take Dinku to your veterinarian right away. Any wound that becomes dark or black in color indicates that the skin and tissue around the wound has lost blood supply and is no longer viable. This wound will need to be thoroughly cleaned and surgically repaired. Let me know if you have other questions?

Hello again, I hope Dinku is feeling better..If my advice helped, it would be greatly appreciated if you could take the time to give my response a positive rating? This would allow me to receive compensation for my expertise and time assisting you and your pet.. Much thanks
