Thank you for reaching out to us. First of all, a photo would be very helpful in this case as I can't evaluate the severity of the lesion at the moment. Is the wound minor? If so, you can first use OTC antiseptics and OTC antibiotics that are designed for dogs and see how it goes. However, if it is an open wound, medical intervention in the clinic is required. This is because an open wound is unlikely to heal or close up on itself and is prone to secondary infections when not treated in time. In this case, the use of antiseptic is usually not recommended due to delayed healing. If you can come back to me with some photos, I can tell you with a little more confidence regarding the necessity of visiting the clinic or not.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us!

Thank you.
