Why wont my dogs wound heal?
My dog recently suffered an injury (a cut) that is located at the base of his tail. We are unsure as to if he was bitten by an animal or not. We took him to the vet where they stitched him up and sent us home. We’ve been noticing that he attempts to keep licking the wound (even when he has a cone that prevents him from doing so). We took him back to the vet 2 days ago who assured us that his wound was fine. HOWEVER, as we look at his wound right now it seems to be getting worse. Pus (his wound looks wet) seems to be coming out of the cut. We’re wondering what this is and if it’s normal. He has been taking antibiotics called Novolexin.
He is a Male Labrador Retriever who is 2 years old.
