Our expert says:
What you have done is correct. I would use salty water instead of the dettol and flush 2-3 x daily. You will also need to get some fly repellent and put this at the margins of the wound and some purple oxytetracycline spray to prevent any bacterial infection. You should be able to get the spray from your local vet.
