Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you share pictures of the cut and video showing her attempts at walking?When did this occur?
The wound appears small from what I can see and you should be able to clean this daily at home with antibacterial soap and water. After the area is clean and dry, you can apply Neosporin.Knowing that she's potentially suffered internal injury, I would urge you to reconsider aspirin as this will hinder her ability to clot blood. If she's bleeding internally this may result in a more severe condition. If you choose to go this route, I would recommend visiting this page and using the dosing calculator: http://www.veterinaryplace.com/dog-medicine/aspirin-for-dogs/Since she is not walking, she does need a veterinary examination and treatment. You'd mentioned that finances are tight, so I would encourage you to reach out to organizations such as those listed below for help with her veterinary bill:
