My dog was just attacked by two pit bulls, and it's badly injured as you might suspect from such an attack, but there is one wound in particular that I do not know how to handle.
At the top of the head, near the neck, there's a bone-deep gash 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide (I'm pretty sure I see the bone clearly through the wound -- After consulting a veterinarian I found that this is not actually the bone, but the thin tissue /membrane that covers it. -- ). It's such a wide open cut, I'm not sure how to treat it.
I've treated the injuries with veterinarian-supplied spray for wounds, but there is no after-hours clinic anywhere near here, so I'll have to wait until 8 AM to bring the dog to be stitched up.
She's miserable but eating and drinking and she's near a heater, with food and water close.
Is there anything I should do for this severe wound that I have not already done?
