Default diving in water after nutering

Hi,
I just got my new black lab from the shelter today. He's just been
nutered. On his first walk, he pulled himself out of his collar and
dove into the lake. Of couse his sutures are fresh and he shouldn't
have done that. What dhould I do now? I gave him a light bath already.

-Thanks
-Todd

Default diving in water after nutering

Hi Todd,
I would dab very lightly at the incision when/if it gets wet. Keep it dry
until it heals properly - if the incision area 'weeps' get vet advice or if
not possible get some hibitane and dilute *very* well and dab close to the
incision but *away* from it each time with a new piece of cotton or
whatever, to reduce further risk of infection. You don't want to leave
soap/wash on the incision/stitches. How's he doing?
Hope he heals well,
Diana
