If he had done it while I was home, it would have stitches. I fed and groomed him early, went to one job, came home, fed him a quick lunch then went back to work until 10p. I went to work EARLY the next day and DH fed him for me both times. The next morning I went to groom him and found the cut. It had to have been over 24 hours old. Vet came and said it wasn't deep enough to have cut tendons or harmed the joint, but it would need to be watched carefully for infection. He left a cream/ointment to be put into it when it is washed daily. He said in no uncertain terms DO NOT wrap it, let it drain.
I'm worried the flies will cause it to become infected or worse *gag*
I am not familiar with silver spray. What is it and does TSC carry it? Or is it something I'd need a script from the vet for?
ETA: This was not our normal vet. He is on vacation and this is the stand in guy. I don't like him much, and I don't trust him. I am not even sure what the meds are since they are in a plain white jar with a paper label I can't read because of my wet hands *DOH* I know it's silly, but if I were more comfortable with this guy, I'd not worry so much more than likely.
