Bathe with warm salt water and vets in morning like you said. you could try putting some savlon or other type of antiseptic cream on but he will probably lick it off.

P.S don't be alarmed if he squeals or makes a fuss, it will sting a bit bless him but will help dry the wound where it is sore from licking, if you do it now and then if you are still up, do again in a couple of hours and then first thing, it will definately help him. keep us posted x
Oh and another P.S:D
It may just be where the hair is growing back through from where he was shaved and with it being itchy he has licked and nibbled at it and made it a bit sore, might not be anything nasty with the actual wound as after 3 weeks it should be near enough healed but obviously check with your vet tomorrow, just don't want you to worry too much...................I will shut up and leave you in peace now:D:D
hi Karen
i have just bathed it and noticed the wound is open only a tiny bit but there is a hole and there was blood on the cotton wool :(
i have put germolene on it to
I will keep you posted thankyou im so grateful xx
I think that tea tree oil is not good for dogs.
Try and cover the area, put a shirt on him or something to try ad stop him from licking through the night.
