No, I don't suspect there is much more you can do. You can shave the area around it to keep the hair away, and clean it regularly with hydrogen peroxide. A little triple antibiotic ointment is good as well.


I would suspect that the altercation is due to frustration more than anything. I would try to let them meet in a large fenced area, or on long lines. It will also help to walk them together more often but not let them do more than a cursory sniff.

Don't use hydrogen peroxide. It kills healthy new tissue. Get some Betadine, and dilute with water until it is the color of weak tea. Use that to flush it with. Then apply a little Neosporin/Triple antibiotic.
This is very good to know! I have been doing it wrong all along... :/
