For scratches and cuts to open sores from a bug bite or skin irritation, a handy supply of dog bandages is essential for any dog parent. Used in combination with an antiseptic spray, a bandage can help keep a wound clean and also deter your pet from causing further irritation. Petco carries several styles, each designed for a specific type of injury. Bandage types typically include gauze squares and rolls, nonstick pads, and paper and adhesive first-aid tape. Some bandages have a bitter coating to discourage your dog from licking their wounds. Anti-lick sprays are also available for the same purpose. Depending on your dog’s specific injury, your veterinarian might also recommend a hot or cold therapy wrap, medical boot or a dog recovery cone. Speak with your veterinarian for advice about treating your dog’s injury without causing any further irritation.
