    I'd switch from peroxide to betadine. peroxide can kill the skin around the wound. I guess it really depends on how bad it is, but I'd rinse it with the betadine and the put some antibiotic ointment on it and wrap with a tiny piece of vet tape. repeat every couple days.

    Quote:I recommend using betadine to flush it, then put neosporin on a gauze and put it on the wound. Wrap the gauze with duct tape. Change it out every other day til it's healed.

    she lifts up her foot all the time now like she doesn't want to walk on it

    Quote:Of course she doesn't want to walk on it. It probably hurts. And putting pressure on it hurts even more. Dawg gave you some sound advice. I'd follow it.

    Good luck.
