Young dogs as well as older dogs enjoy running and playing especially outside where there are many hazardous obstacles. It is common for dogs to get cut or wounded when they are outside however even though it occurs often it still is dangerous for your dog. The most important thing to do when your dog gets a cut or a wound is to insure it stops bleeding and then clean it because it is common for unattended wounds to become infected. Symptoms that can be noted if your pet has contracted an infection in its wound would be a sudden drop in energy, loss of appetite and sluggish movements.
In order for your pet to heal properly limit his exposure to some activities which may cause the wound to worsen or return. Also feed your pet nutritional food to keep him healthy and less prone to catching any bacterial diseases. Visit your veternarian in order to discuss any possible options for your pet's cut or wound.
