I need some advice. My doberman pups tail docking stitches came open. He is not bleeding it looks a bit pink. My question to you is can I use a liquid bandaid to close the remainder of the tail so that it does not leave a scar, or should I put some neosporin and some tape. Really do not want to place more stitches on the puppy. Need Help Please. . .

How old is the puppy? Has he been chewing at it? Or has his dam been pulling on it? I'm not too sure about what you should put on it (someone else will chime in I'm sure) but you'll definitely want to know how to prevent it from happening again :)

The Dam is just doing her job from cleaning the puppy after he eats. The puppy is only 6 days old. He had it done on day 3.

I would return to the place where the stitches were stitched.

Thanks for the advice. I called the vet today and he said the same thing. I brought them in today and all four pups are doing well. I felt bad that they had to stitch them up again.
