Consult your local veterinarian if these instances occur:

  • Bites from other animals. You may be able to clean the surface of a bite wound, but bacteria from the animal’s teeth is likely to get deeper than you’re able to reach. Consult a vet to be on the safe side.
  • Injury to the chest or stomach area. Serious injuries like internal bleeding often don’t look life-threatening. In cases like these, always be sure to take Fido to the vet for a thorough check-up.
