Any recommendations for healing


Recommended Posts

Stitch, lead walk, lampshade and in a fortnight will be as good as new. If left open will take longer to heal, leave more scaring and risk of infection. plus leaves you open to the ARsPCA coming after you with a cruelty case unless you have written evidence of a vets opinion that it should be left open. An emergency vet might not stitch as it may need an anaesthetic so they pass back to your own vet, your own vet would need to actually see the wound to be able to offer an opinion.

one of mine a couple of weeks after similar.

Oh right sorry..... im assuming the vet just said "f**k it kid leave it like that be rate"

I think I'd be changing my vet......... Cheers.

That can be easily stitched and if your vet can’t do it come to me I will have it done in two minuets …..

Looks like it needs stiching,staples but apparently vet said it don't need it ? My opinion it needs pulling together and staples with ends open to drain but maybe it looks worse than it really is or he left it and now vet will not do it as I've known vets to refuse to stitch cuts that been left until next day .

If lad had took dog vets first of he wouldn't be asking on here how to heal it as vet would have advised him on honey ,salt washes etc .

 

He has already said he took the dog till out of hours vet when it happen I don't know if he did But why would he tell lies

If he did take it to out of hours vet I think they would be more than able to stitch a dog I have been to them before But fuckers know how to get into ur wallet lol

If you look closely at the picture of the wound on the dog, that isn't a wound caused by barbed wire or a similar cut mate. That's the result of an infection caused by a bite or scratch from something, likely a cat with Bartonella disease. The area is inflammed and the poison is coming to the surface and splitting the skin/fur apart.  He ain't saying much because someone's moggy is probably involved 👌 I've seen the exact same thing and wouldn't of believed it unless I'd seen it in real life.

Not read whole thread as I’m busy but my vet would refuse to stitch that unless it was proper fresh, keep it clean and be prepared for a long wait, iv had cuts similar an if the vet can sort it them all well an good, but if they vet won’t stitch it up, then it takes Fcuking yonks to heal, but keep it clean an free of infection an heal it will, bodies are amazing things 👍

One of mine had a similar injury, caught her chest on barbed wire. Against my better judgement, I let the vet stitch it up. He put loads of tension sutures in because it was such a tight pull. And as I suspected would happen, all the skin died and everything pulled apart, and she ended up with a wound twice as big. Took 6 months to heal, was the size of a bloody grapefruit. I used Manuka honey on mine but it was easier to dress than that is.

I'd be inclined to treat that as an open wound. Definitely wants antibiotics and probably pain meds if it just happened. Then keep clean and dry, good food, rest etc, and wait. When you see the edges start to granulate, be careful how you clean it so as not to disturb the new cell growth too much. Consult your vet if you're ever not 100% sure it's healing well and keep your records incase the aRSePCA come knocking.
