What is the best way to clean a wound?


Shave any fur or hair from around the wound. If the wound is clean and fresh, it may be sufficient to use a saline solution. However, if the wound is dirty, you should carefully wash it with water at 38°C, using a hose for example. If the wound is very contaminated, you can also use chlorhexidine soap.
