Helpful hint - Ensure you have petroleum jelly in your vet kit

Most of you will have a pot of Vaseline hanging around, but did you know that petroleum jelly can be very handy when managing wounds?
If your are managing an open wound that is weeping with discharge, petroleum jelly (Vaseline) is great to use underneath the wound. It acts as a barrier to ensure the discharge doesn't burn the hair and skin directly below it and ensures that it is easier to keep the area surrounding the wound clean.
So if you want to leave an open wound uncovered, try using a liberal amount of petroleum jelly on the area directly below the wound, where the discharge is likely to flow and see what you think!
