Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

I am sorry to hear about your dog's nose. This should heal, and the pigment should come back when it does, but if the wound is deep and leaves a scar it might not. If this is just a scrape, the pigment should come back.

You can apply a little Neosporin or triple antibiotic to the scrape for a day or so, twice daily.

Please let me know if this is helpful and what other questions you may have.

Thank you. If he licks off neosporin will it hurt him. As soon as I put it on I suspect that's what will happen.

You are welcome! He probably will lick it, but a little bit will not be harmful if he ingests it. You can try to hold his mouth closed, or feed him, so it has a few minutes to be absorbed after applying it.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Kindly consider rating my answer, so the website knows to credit me for assisting you!
