    I'm sorry for starting a new thread but I didn't see my girl's problem. We just moved to a new home and when we set the girls up I noticed a small wound on her foot. That was 2 days ago. Now it's gotten bigger. How do I clean and dress the wound? I tried to upload a pic but your site isn't allowing me to. Thank you for your advice

    Hi. Its hard to know how you should treat the wound without knowing what it looks like. If it is swollen up and looks infected you should soak her foot in warm epsom salt water for 15 minutes and then depending on how it looks - you could dry the foot and spray it with Blu Kote but, you may need to cover the wound and try to keep it clean and retreat it daily. Hope this helps?
