Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query. the treaemtn depends on type of wound and about dog immunisation. itall you need is to clean wound and watch for signs of infection. if dog was wilds than you should have vaccine. there is no need for specific diet during this period. Wish you good health. Regards
