Our expert says:
In this particular site, cuts and bruises will normally heal fairly quickly, because it is superficial. It will not necessarily need veterinary attention. You can also not really use any antiseptic lotions or solutions in this particular area. If the swelling does not go down within a few days or gets worse, obviously your vet will need to be involved. Any sore that does not heal up completely within a reasonable period of time should be investigated.
