I have a chocolate lab and he has a wound on his ear. Every time the wound scabs over he scratches it to open the wound again. Are there any home remedies to help it heal?


Without knowing the exact cause it is impossible to give you a definite cure, but to help a wound heal you can apply coconut oil or aloe vera to keep it moist. It helps if you can bandage it to keep the dog from scratching it open/rolling on the ground and irritating it, but if you cannot just try one of those two medications twice a day.
