wound is quite small and doesn't look like it need a stitch, and looks clean, not really bleeding, but must be sore. What is the best way to treat it?

I would always clean it (antiseptic wipes if he can bear it - careful around the pointy end) and cover it in vaseline so that he doesn't lick it and so that germs can't get in.

Otherwise just leave it alone.

(we have the odd bite injury here with so many dogs, and we've always done this without any issues - but I'm not a vet)

Poor bugger sad Hope he feels better soon.

Thank you,,,I will go and look out the vaseline. No ones fault, my dog is stupid and forgets that big dogs are bigger than she is and don't like to be rushed at by barking small dog!

I would get antibiotics from the vet.
