Hello Everyone,

My AB, Champ jumped off a chair in the backyard and scraped his chin on the cement. He was bleeding. I went ahead and cleaned the area and the bleeding stopped but Ive notice that he leaves little blood stains when he lay downs and his chin touches the floor. Is this something I would go to the vet for? or will it heal. There is no gash, just a scrape. What are your suggestions?

Thanks for the quick reply,
Is there anything you suggest I do?
I cant put a bandaid on it, or can I?

Is there any ointment or cream I could use to help it heal faster?

From experience I wouldn't rush out to a Vet but I'm $ure they would like you to. Keep it clean and apply some Polysporn. Its not the first or last time he will get a scrape. Not sure where you live but a friend had a problem with his AB's tail getting infected because it was too cold out and it wouldn't heal properly. Just keep an eye on it.

Well, when Atticus has his problem with his tail, we got some gauze, wrapped that with saran wrap and some pre-wrap, then taped it up. That way it was safe and it stopped him from chewing on it. Must supervise them, though. Then again, if it's on his chin, I doubt he'll be able to bite it off. Unless he's REEEEEEEALLLLLLLLY talented.

ash

I know some old remedies but probably not the best way. But you can put a lil ash on it my cousins dog had a nick in her ear and we put a lil ash and it stopped the bleeding right away.

Thanks again for the great advice,
Could I use Neosporin?
Hmm. Good Idea, never cross my mind to use on the Spray on bandage, just gotta make sure and not get it in his mouth.

Hey apbt-owner, like your saying.
Thanks,

spray some johnson & johnson spray bandage on his chin.
Most farm supply places have a spray on bandage stuff that is a little more durable and it's safer if the animal licks/chews it and eats it.

Generally, it's best just to leave it be. My buddy Jim had his dog torn up a bit by wolves in AK and just made Baby (his dog) comfortable and left her to heal. You couldn't tell, right now, that she'd ever been injured. Coco (my princess) tangled with a coyote X that had been killing & eating dogs up where I was staying. Got bit on the back of her leg. I just let her lick it and allowed it to drain. All that can be seen now is a small light spot on her thigh. I'd be careful about wrapping up wounds, especially with non-breathable material. It tends to keep the affected area moist which can promote bacterial growth. It also prevents the dog from cleaning and debriding the wound. ...Willy.
