Q. My dog scrathed the top of her ear open can I use hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol to clean it ?
A. Hydrogen peroxide would be good for an infected wound, but I would not use it on the ear because it' s very close to the eye. Alcohol the same and it' s even more stingy . Do you have or could you find some chlorexidine ? You need to dilute it with water and use it on the area. If you can t find it, use salty water. One teaspoon of salt into a cup of hot water, leave it to cool down until lukewarm , then use it on the wound.
