Open wound on dog not bleeding any more

My 14 year old, 19 pound poodle was recently brought to the vet after he had a fight with a large dog (about 60 pounds) and was bitten and cut by one of its teeth. The wound is on his left side, between his foreleg and his chest and is about two inches in length. The vet said that the dog had broken the skin of my dog in the fight and was no longer bleeding. Is it safe to go home and let the wound just heal on its own? If the dog doesn't bite my dog or anything else for the rest of the day, will it leave him alone and let him heal? My dog is on meds and taking an antibiotic but the vet said there is no reason for him to be on them for more than two weeks at the most.

I don't know if you will see this, I am posting as a friend to your dog. This is a wound that has been created by a dog's bite. In order for your dog to heal this wound, the wound must not be disturbed or reopened. The dog's body must have the chance to get to the wound and close it. After 24 hours of the wound being opened, the dog must be quarantined. This means the wound must be cleaned and allowed to stay open for 24 hours without any intervention by you or any other person. Once the dog has been in quarantine for 24 hours, you can begin a clean healing process. In this process, you should clean the wound with mild soap and water to wash away any dirt or infection. You can also clean the wound with iodine. This is to be done at the site of the wound. If you have to move your dog to the clinic or veterinary hospital, the iodine can be given by IV. I think it is best to keep the wound open with a bandage. It would be best to leave the bandage on for 7 days and only remove it during feeding and for necessary cleaning of the wound. You can take the iodine out of the wound after seven days and allow it to begin healing, or the wound may become infected and need to be opened and cleaned. It is better to wait on this until the wound has healed. Please don't try to close the wound. If you try to do this, the wound could reopen. If you close the wound, the wound will heal slower and be more painful.

I think you would be well served to keep your dog quarantined for two weeks, you should also clean the wound with the iodine as often as needed to keep the wound from becoming infected. Keep the wound open with a bandage until you are sure it is healed. You may need to keep him home from school for several days, I'm not sure how old your dog is but if he's more than 1 year old, he will be quarantined longer, as dogs tend to get more contagious if they get it while still in the puppy stage.
