The bottom picture is just showing the first signs of proud flesh.
If you apply active manuka honey to the wound and keep it bandaged it will reduce the proud flesh and encourage the wound to heal quicker. Don't put wound powder on it and only wash in saline. Change the dressing at least daily.
If you have no honey then apply some neat salt to the wound. Pour some salt into the palm of your hand, add a drop of water to it and then press onto the wound. It will sting initially but will wear off fast. One of mine managed to give itself a huge three corner tear on her chest - vet advised salt and once healed you couldn't even see the wound.
