Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry that Eddie has gotten injured....Poor guy!! Ye,s it is normal for the wounds as they heal, to have a terrible odor. This comes from the fact that the damaged tissues need to come out in the form of pus and this creates this terrible odor, even with the antibiotics on board. If there is a discharge coming from the wounds, clean this off every 4-6 hrs with Betadine, available at the pharmacy over the counter. This will help remove this discharge that must come out before the healing process can begin. This will help decrease this odor and help Eddie's body heal. You are doing everything you can for Eddie....now it is up to his body.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
You are very welcome....don't worry...you are doing great for your sweet Eddie!!
