Default dog bite on tail

On Thursday my golden had a 2 second encounter with a friends dog ( who is
healthy ) . I didn't even notice that his dog bit my dogs tail. On Friday I
saw a bloody spot, and it had a small abscess.. clearly a tooth puncture. So
we cleaned it well with peroxide, warm compress and put antibiotic cream on
it and rapped it. Yesterday I cleaned it again, compress and more cream.. it
continued to drain. Today I cleaned again and left the bandage off.. It's
draining a little and it's not nearly as puffed out..
So I imagine If I went to the Vet, he would do the same and maybe put him on
antibiotics ????
I figure keep an eye on it.. and it should go away ? If it does not than
maybe a trip to the vet. Anyone else have this and have any advise ?

Joel
