Hello my name is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg in Miami, Florida with Miami Dog Training. In this clip we're going to talk about treating dog wounds. And this is a great product and it's just for open wounds and it's to clean them out, it works on people too, occasionally I get a little bite when I have to break up a dogfight and it works wonders. Chlorhexidine cleans out their wounds and you can spray them directly into the wounds and really flush out any of the bacterias that are left in there from a dog's bite or from whatever it was that cut them. It's always good to have a first aid kit on hand whether it be for you or the dogs, but gauze pads and especially one thing that's really good to have is gloves when treating a dog's wounds so that we don't infect them any worse. So some nice latex gloves are great. Alcohol, not so much, you don't want to burn the dog or freak him out when he's got a wound when you're trying to address it. Once again this is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training.
