Q. My dog was hit by car has been to vet to address fractured hind leg. He has some abrasions on his groin causing some pain what can I put on it

Answered By

A. Your vet should be able to advise on the best way to treat the wounds that they have examined recently. There are a number of wound treatments such as medical honey or intrasite gel which can work well to create a soothing barrier, promote healing and prevent infection but not all wounds are suitable
