Compared to other dog breeds our galgos have very sensitive skin. On our walks this "paper" skin and their high speed is often the reason for serious injuries. Pleasant outings are often enough followed by a visit to the veterinarian's office. In addition, the healing process of our beloved dog breed can take quite some time.
Using natural honey as a means for cicatrization is a traditional and very efficient method. Honey does have antibacterial and antifungal characteristics. Due to its high viscosity, honey can be applied very well to wounds between two gauze pads.
This method is recommended for superficial wounds that cannot be treated surgically. Obviously antibiotics should also be administered and the wound should be cleaned regularly with a disinfectant. When the gauze pad is renewed twice daily, the result is impressive. Guido
