Han, my male dog mix, have wounds
Unfortunately not a lot can be suggested without it being seen so I would recommend taking it to a vet. If the swelling gas not reduced within a few days then something may be wrong with the bone or we could be missing something quite serious. Hopefully it's not, but you won't know without the vet.

Lila, my female dog mix, have wounds
Pad injuries usually take a long time to heal and suturing is rarely an option. bandaging and changing the bandage every 3 days until it heals is the best course of treatment.

Dog Ollie

Ollie, my male dog golden retriever, has wounds
Hi Could you send a picture? I think that I would have used a bandage and changed it every day/ two days. The paws are always moving and in contct with the ground and they are very very hard to cure. Please don't make a bandage at home. We see a lot of accidents because of badly placed bandages that lead to bad circulation, necrosis and even amputation. That sounds extreme but i have seen it happen... Maybe the wound isn't progressing as bad as you think, but if you're not sure, take Ollie to another vet to see if they find a better way to treat the problem. Remember to always use the e-collar and to clean the wound at leas 3 times per day if it's not bandaged. Kind regards.

Thanks for the picture! I woud have clipped the hair and probably used bandages... It doesn't look infected, but it's difficult to tell with a photo. This doesn't mean that my way of doing things is good and others' are bad, but if you're not happy with the progress, you may find another place where you feel more confortable. I allways say that the most important thing is to trust your vet and to be trusted by your clients when you are the vet. I'd rather loose a client than have someone not following the treatment because they don't agree with me. You may ask more questions if you like ;) Kind regards.

Dog Rory

Rory, my female dog poodle, has wounds
Hi, those are good questions. Don't let Rory lick it (use an e-collar an cotton socks if needed). In case of doubt take her to a vet. Maybe she needs antibiotics (topical or oral). Trim the hair arround the irritated zone, wash ir with water and soap after every walk and use diluted povidone as an antiseptic. You may bathe her paw in water with salt and povidone (make it tea colour). Don't cover the paw if you can, let it breathe. keep it dry.

Jessie, my male dog mixed with poodle, has wounds and bites
Hello! Sometimes after operations, stitches etc, the wound get infected or it accumulates fluid and it should be drained, like in your case. The only thing you can do is to visit your vet again in order to drain the bump, and if necessary, clean the wound again. All the best for you and Jessie.

Brutus, my male dog german wirehaired pointer, has wounds and bites
Hello! When a wound is open and/or bleeding you should go to a veterinarian as soon as possible as it should be cleaned and put stitches / bandage. What you can do while waiting to get to the clinic is to put pressure on the wound with possible sterilized material to cut off possible bleeding. Also, you can clean it with hydrogen peroxide and/or iodine, and prevent your dog from licking the area. Take him as soon as possible to a veterinary clinic in order to prevent infection and spreading of infected area. All the best for you and Brutus.
