Small Cut On Foot

Recommended Posts

Missy is a foot licker..I have tried everything. I check regularly for sores, etc. this morning I saw a small sore in the folds of her foot, on the side. I know this has been discussed here in the past..if I remember correctly, soaking in epson salt really helps heal. But, do I need to do anything else such as ointment or bandage. she will rip the bandage off in 2 seconds though. Maybe benadryl to relieve itching? thanks.

Epson salts should help it feel better, if nothing else. According to my vet, benadryl won't help with healing, and if your dog is a real licker, the antibiotic cream just encourages them to lick it off.


Have you tried "taping" a baby sock on, with vet wrap at the top of it?
