Can anyone tell me what’s the best treatment if any for bites from rats on my terriers?

Before I just left to heal naturally, just want to make sure no serious damage caused you never know.

Thanks

I used to leave them too until I had one go badly wrong and end in a t.b infection which was ,to say the least very expensive .Rat bites need cleaning out with some sort of antiseptic for which I now use hibiscrub .

If you do not know the correct dilution % for antiseptics then do not use. We are now developing new strains of antiseptic resistant bacteria due to incorrect use...the same as incorrect use of anti biotics has created the AB resisitant MRSA and C Diff bacterias.
I just bathe with cooled boiled water then let the dog tend to them, for all wounds.

WASH THE DOG DOWN WITH DURAMITEX TO STOP MANGE (HALF A CAPFUL SHOULD DO IN A BUCKET OF WATER) IT KILLS THE MITES THAT CAUSE MANGE IF THAT DOESNT DO IT THEN APPLY SOME NU STOCK AS FOR RAT BITES USE SALT WATER THEN DISINFECTANT AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEAN AND DRY THEN THE DOG WILL SEE TO IT AFTER THAT

hibiscrub works a treat mate, if any it does end up infected a jab of penicillin will do the job. Just keep an eye on it :victory:
