Q. I have a dog that was burned about a week or about a week and a half ago. What type of home remedies can I use to help my dogs cuts heal and recover?
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. I'm sorry but I'm not sure I can make any helpful recommendations at this point except take him in for veterinary care. Burns that aren't healed after 10 days are serious, and likely infected at this point. Severe burns can cause protein loss through the skin, and can make the animal systemically ill. They are also exquisitely painful. He needs veterinary attention asap.
