Customer Question

My dog was attacked by another dog and has a sizable gash on his back. It appears to have gotten down to the fattier tissue. I am currently unable to afford a full blown veterinary bill but I know that he is going to need a professionals eyes on him to ensure he is ok. I have cleaned and flushed the wound with saline solution and treated with neosporin before wrapping it with gauze and an ace bandage to keep it secured. His energy is come and go he let me take him for a walk after cleaning it all out.
