Q. My dog has been attacked by another dog and she has open wounds on her head what medicine can I put on it?

A. You should clean the wound with worm water and cotton wool. Bite wound are often serious and get infected very easily so I would strongly recommend you to take your dog to your vets for examination and to get treatment
