When my dog has a minor cut or irritaion, I clean it with Vetericyn or Bactine, then usually treat it with Neosporin or Bag Balm a couple times a day. For anything that might need stitches, I take the dog to the vet.

Highly recommend cleaning with squirt saline and then Derma Gel.

I started this years ago with my horses and it is my go-to for all skin injuries that do not require vet intervention.
