My dog had this when some glass got in and got infected. Looks like it could be infected and need visit to vet

It looks green - which makes me think grass seen - but I'm sure it was just like a red scrape yesterday. I cleaned it with an antiseptic wipe and put aloe vera on it - then loosely wrapped a bandage to stop the licking - have I made it worse?!

Aloe Vera is toxic for dogs and shouldn’t be used where they can ingest it.

I use magnesium sulphate paste, covered with a baby sock held in place by adhesive athletic tape. It’s generally enough to pull out whatever’s in there within 24hours, but sometimes needs a vet.

was it definitely a cut rather than red or inflamed skin?

Looked more like a graze?

I researched the aloe Vera - not toxic
Topically or if they lick - it's a certain part of the plant that is toxic?

I asked because I was wondering about Alabama rot. Very rare and unusual but you might want to look at the early symptom photos just to be sure it looked nothing like them

I wouldnt think alabama rot, more likely this time of year to be a grass seed, or if he licks there alot a lick granualoma, dose he get hayfever? If so the granualoma is probbly more likely

Looks like this now
