Ouch!!! Yes, I'd go with the neosporin for this one. Peroxide does damage the tissue and it has more of a chance to scar, neosporin is much better for healing cuts like this.

. I've been told that adding some lightly cooked green beans to the food will add bulk and not add calories. It makes them feel full and should work. I've not tried it personally since I've not had a dog who needed to lose weight but I know other dog owners who say it works well. Chop up the fresh b...

Better to wash it well with soap & water and not use the peroxide.

Hydrogen peroxide actually damages the flesh and makes it harder for it to heal. The Neosporin or Polysporin would be much better to put on it. He'll probably be fine, it does not sound like a bad cut.

. I read some info about early spaying in female dogs that stated they are less likely to get bladder and urinary infections if they are spayed after the first heat. Something about spaying after the first heat allows the vagina to "drop" and reach full size? It was a study but damned if I can find ...

Thanks for the ingrediants.

I looked quickly for "Fipronil" with goggle and there is a lot of info... I'm too tired now but I'll look more tomorrow, that Fipronil looks like toxic stuff.

. Yes, try some meat tenderizer on the food. Also feeding a little crushed pineapple in his food should help. I'd use one at a time, not the two together. Both are supposed to make the stool taste horrid to the dog. I've not had a dog with this problem in a long time but I remember well how annoying...

. Thanks for the info. I don't have a container for either Frontline nor for Advantage so I don't know what is in them. If any one has the ingredients list and feels like typing it, that would be helpful, thanks. Since I only have one dog and she is inside most of the time, she does not have a flea ...

. Interesting... I have not used any flea stuff since I don't see any fleas. But I do put minced raw garlic in her food and it seems to work well to keep the fleas off. I hate to use poisons when they are not needed. Does Advantage have different ingredients than Frontline? I have not used either on...
