Hi! My Ridgeback scraped up her leg yesterday and she is constantly trying to lick it. Is alright to let her lick her wounds or should I try covering them up? I cleaned them right away and I did cover them overnight but I am not home during the day to monitor her and wonder if it will infect her wound if she is licking it.
If the wound is deep then I recommend a visit to the vet. Licking it can make it worse. Put some bacitracin on the scratch and try to cover it. Good luck, vetcare
