I am at my wits' end! I have a greyhound (with the usual tomato-thin skin) and he was bitten by another dog almost 4 weeks ago. He had a spot on his side and another in his groin (where his leg meets his belly by his *naughty bits*) and the shoulder has healed fine; however, he has had three rounds of stitches and one round of staples in his groin and they keep getting pulled. The vet says that it will eventually heal on its own, but stitching it makes it MUCH faster because otherwise the wound has a lot of "dead space." I hate putting him through the pain and danger of surgery (not to mention the exorbitant costs). Does anybody have any helpful suggestions? Is there anything I can do to help or any treatments that are more effective? I can't limit his activity any more that it already is because he was always a lazy dog.
