Any good dog injury healing suggestions welcome! NOW w/ *PIX*

Our poor lil puppy Riley ripped her toe nail last night. We stopped the bleeding, called the vet and soaked her poor lil foot in hydrogine peroxide last night to clean the wound and this morning again after her walk.

Anyone have any other good suggestions in what we should do to facilitate this healing faster. I would greatly appreciate it.


Here are some updated pix of Riley and her new "big" friend Tucker. ;)

I just put Polysporin on Brody's cuts. The last one I bought is the "Triple heal fast formula". It works pretty well for me.

There is probably something better though.

Awe... doggy hug

My dog did that once... we just stopped the bleeding, bandaged it until she ripped it off, and tried to keep her off of it as much as possible for a few days. It healed pretty quickly, though, dogs are resilient. I'm sorry that happened to your pup! Hopefully it heals fast!

thanks for all your great suggestions and compliments. I put some Polysporen on it this morning as it seems to hurt her more today than yesterday. I think she aggravated it by licking it. i also borrowed a cone from my neighbor this morning so she can't bother it anymore. It looks like she actually ripped the entire nail off but it is hard to see because she is so furry and won't let me touch it. I was successful in trimmining a bit of the hair back but that didn't help too much. I also have been soaking her foot in HP.

Yes she is a cockapoo.

Yes, I did call the vet but they didn't really give me much info besides telling me that I do not need to rap it and if it doesn't get better to bring her in and have the vet take a look.

I had a cat with an infected and ripped toenail and a cat with infection after de-claw. The vet told me to use Betadine/warm water mix. She told me to soak it in the Betadine mix for a couple of minutes and I had fun trying to hold cat's paws in it!!! Worked quickly. She said no hydrogen peroxide for the critters. I think she said it slows healing and kills good tissue. I would be careful of ointments/creams b/c my critters tend to lick. She is very cute and hope she gets better soon!!! Oh and if you do go the Betadine route...be careful b/c it stains just like Iodine.

oh wow I didn't know that thanks so much for telling me. maybe the HP has made it worse. My son told me to use it and I always use it on us so I thought it be good for puppy too. How stupid of me. Yes, she does lick but I put a cone on her so she can no longer do that now. Where do they sell Betadine? rite aid?

I haven't decided if she is Hillary Clinton or Hillary Duff

I like human names for pets.

I tried to get my friends daughter-in-law to name her new Saint Bernard puppy Larry. He just looked like a Larry to me. Walter would have been a great choice as well.

I have a dog named Kenny...but I mostly call him damn it.

I got it from Walmart so it probably is also at rite aid. I bet she looks cute with the cone!!! Poor thing...hopefully she will cooperate more with the soaking thing !!!

HP will kill and further damage good tissue....do not use it! It can actually permantely damage cells and slow or hinder healing. It basically cannot differentiate between bacterial cells or good cells so it rids all of it, eventually leaving room for further infection. Same goes for human use btw!
