Injuries & First Aid for dogs
At some point or another all dogs will suffer from an injury, whether it be due to an accident whilst playing, a fight or some other type of trauma. It is important to treat an injury as quickly as possible to make sure the wound heals properly. It is also very important your dog abstains from licking, scratching or biting the affected area as this delays the healing process and can even cause infection.

The Medical Pet Shirt protects the wound or the bandaged area from getting dirty or other outside influences. However, it does not provide good protection from your dog scratching, licking or biting the area as they can still move around freely.
Applying a bandage or dressing to the affected area will give it more time to heal as it becomes harder for your dog to bite, scratch or lick the affected area. Try using Gamgee Dressing to protect your dog's wounds. To apply the bandage or dressing properly, some know-how is required.
