Dear injure- you NEED to get this dog medical attention, please call your local MSPCA, this dog is a stray and this exactly why this agency was formed, they will be able to help her and she will receive themedical attention she needs. Please do not give her anymore of your pain medication, as certain human meds are poisonous to dogs and can cause damage or even death. This dog needs whole system antibiotics and possibly surgery for a wound that severe, topical ointment will not help. Please keep me posted- good luck.
