When dogs go playing with other dogs or are out on woodland walks they can often come home with the odd scratch etc just like children do in the playground.
Just like our children, dogs will get minor scratches and scrapes. It is important that if you are worried you head straight to a vet.

However in some instances a good clean, and some TLC mends the problem quite easily.

We always wash all scrapes etc in Salt water. We dissolve salt in hot water pop a clean flannel in the solution and leave it to go cold. Then we bathe gently any cut / scratch.

If the skin is not broken we like to use either hypercal or Manuka honey gel to sooth the wound and help mend it quickly.
