Cleaning a dog bite can be then as easy as using warm soapy water and applying topical antibiotic cream. The veterinarian is the only person who knows how to treat a dog bite effectively, so if there are puncture wounds, seek the vet’s assistance. Deep puncture wounds can lead to bigger issues when treated improperly. Usually, the vet will prescribe antibiotics. If your furry friend is seriously injured, then hold pressure on the bleeding wounds and keep him warm by wrapping him in a blanket. Drive straight to the nearest veterinary hospital!
