Will Draper, DVM responded:
ourcast- Silver sulfa is good for topical treatment of some superficial wounds, but it is not recommended you apply anything to a wound on your dog without a veterinarian's blessing. I'd recommend first having it checked out by your vet, and then go from there. There may be something more applicable (and affordable) for the possible hotspots. Best of luck- keep us posted!
