    It would probably lick it off and swallow it.

    I would say it depends on What the wound is and where it is on your dog.

    I have used antisceptic creams on my dogs and not had any problems with them.

    I'm a vet, and I regularly advise their use in mild problems. Sometimes you just don't need the excessive power of an antibacterial or steroid based cream and then again, sometimes you do.

    Well I swear by Sudocrem for using on any grazes/cuts my horses get, never done them any harm and a hell of a lot cheaper using human stuff than anything with "equine" in the title!

    My vet told me to use tcp on my bird's leg. But I'd be concerned that a cream would sit on the skin and then be licked off

    I`ve used both savlon and germoline and then covered with a plaster or bandage. Most times bathing in a lukewarm saline solution twice daily does the trick for small cuts.

    The best thing I've found (and it was recommended by my vet) is Hibiscrub watered down and applied and just left - don't rinse off. Sudocrem can also work but is nuisance on anything with long hair.

    Savlon now do an antiseptic spray, which I use on my dog. It's much easier than trying to get cream through the fur.

    She wasn`t scared but didn`t know what it was and the expression on her face was unbelieveable, she is crossed with a mastiff so the wrinkles on her forehead were working overtime. Cue one loose radiator in the hallway and a mad hound that thought it was some kind of new game

    lol sudocream isnt for use on open wounds! itsd non healing, rather its a water barrier.

    its for damaged areas where the skin is not broken.
  • Missconduct
    Hilarious, Sunnyday, would have liked to see that

    One of our dogs is very sensitive to smells and if I spray something near her or even (as I'm often doing as my hands get very dry) rub hand cream in near her, she pulls the funniest face, sort of lifts her lips and sometimes starts sneezing. We only have to get the grooming spray out now and she starts pulling faces

    I use sudocream for sore ( red doggy) bottoms, and hot spots. for any other kind of open sore I go to the Vets. Which is a good idea for everyone, heres why.

    TJ had an open sore on his bottom, it wouldnt heal and after a few day of bathing I took him to the Vets. At first Vet thought it could be an insect bite. 1 injection and a few days later it was no better. Back to the Vets.

    Anyway it was a nasty, operated on a few days later. Boy we were lucky it was a melonoma but we caught it very quick (stage 1) So please if you see a sore that doesnt seen to be getting better, get it checked out. Better safe than sorry. It looked so harmless, and small.

    We were lucky, so many others saddly are not.

    Sudocrem & hibiscrub can certainly be used (I've been provided with or discussed using both with/ by vets). Saltwater is another alternative.

    I'd avoid phenol based products (eg TCP) as these can be toxic to dogs & many other products can also be so I would therefore suggest seeking veterinary advice before doing so if unsure about any product
