Customer Question

My dog was seen Wednesday for an anal rupture. I was given EnteDerm to apply into the wound. However it looks as though tonight the wound is closing just enough that if I try to push to EnteDerm in his wound starts to bleed. Should I still put it in or just apply to the outside?

Hello!Thank you for your question I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you. It is a good thing that the wound is trying to close. That's exactly what we want to have happen. Since that's what we want, I would not advise applying the EnteDerm forcefully enough to cause bleeding as this delays the healing a little bit. I would just apply it to any parts of the wound you can reach gently without causing bleeding. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating.
