Whatever it was the injury was rather precise and painful because all the fur was completely gone on the whole area. Looks almost like it was shaved and you see bruising too.
Well, it looks almost healed to me....just missing the fur and no doubt, still kinda painful.
If it were me...I wouldn't put anything on it unless it got worse. My first thought was that he'd either got that leg caught in a fence, or maybe it was scalped by a car radiator fan. Poor baby.
How does it affect his walking? I mean, I know it must be sore, but does he use it?
