Sore on Head

I have a bassett hound that i inherited this month, and she had a bad tick bite on her head, the previous owners were putting a blue spray on her head. The problem is is that flies are sitting on her head and are making the hole bigger. What can we do to try and heal it?

Dear Lsia

Put Shoo-fly around the wound and ask your vet for a good ointmnet that will assist in the wound healing.

Leave it open.

I use Meths if it is not a deep wound - as it dries the wounds out quite quickly.

Use a Shoo-Fly type of product to keep the flies away.
