Get your self to the medics ASAP
A dog's mouth is full off germs & the human body can't cope with them !
Thanks. I'm keeping a close eye on it. I may pop into the local "minute clinic" and see if they want to give me an antibiotic but so far healing appears to be happening in the normal way.

Main thing is to keep the wound 'open' don't put bandages on etc. Mouths/teeth ---that includes human have anaerobic bacteria which can cause gangrene, such bacteria die if there is no oxygen.

When you start howling at the moon, it's time to go to A&E.

Wait, what? They die if there is no oxygen or if there is oxygen? I don't want to end up like Sir Ranulph Fienes, cutting off my own leg in the garden with the shears.

I can't put a bandage on it anyway, there's so much neosporin ointment on it that nothing will stick.

Apologies+++** they die if there IS oxygen. So just wash the wound and leave open.

Yep, the internet is definitely the best place to get medical advice

That's an EU benefit. It allows for free movement of wives.

Well it's cheap, and it beats uploading pictures of my Grisly Wound which is what Eric wanted me to do.

"An anaerobic organism may be unicellular (e.g. protozoans, bacteria) or multicellular. For practical purposes, there are three categories of anaerobe: obligate anaerobes, which are harmed by the presence of oxygen; aerotolerant organisms, which cannot use oxygen for growth but tolerate its presence; and facultative anaerobes, which can grow without oxygen but use oxygen if it is present."

So you're pretty sure that gangrene-causing bacteria are obligate, are you? And that just keeping a wound open allows sufficient oxygen contact to harm the obligate anaerobes to a degree that will kill them before they can be transported elsewhere in the body where there is insufficient free oxygen to kill them? That sounds like stuff that maybe, say, a doctor might know ...

"Oh, don't fuss. I washed it under the tap. It'll be ok."

The Ranulph Fienes method sounds more attractive.

Dogs, cats, anything but today's visitor to the patio.....

Excuse the poor quality, but he's not a happy boy, so I'm keeping glass between him and me.

They say the sting is little worse than a bee sting - but they're the ones who haven't been stung!!

Is it a pet? You appear to be feeding it?
