Q. I got a dog she is small but when I got her she had a sore on her neck o have been putting vasoline on it and a clean wrap what else can I do

A. Vaseline may delay healing. A clean wrap will protect the area during healing. You can try an OTC triple antibiotic ointment or have your vet examine it to see if it requires systemic antibiotics. If the "sore" has been there for some time and is not healing, definitely have her examined by your vet.
