Ensure your dog is calm and relaxed before beginning. Speak softly and offer treats to ease anxiety.
Examine the wound carefully to determine its size and severity. Consult a vet for deep or serious wounds.
Use a mild antiseptic solution to cleanse the wound gently. Avoid harsh chemicals that may cause discomfort.
After cleaning, pat the wound dry with a clean, soft cloth to prevent irritation.
Apply a pet-safe antibiotic ointment to promote healing and reduce the risk of infection.
If necessary, cover the wound with a sterile bandage to prevent contamination and further discomfort.
