I have 2 2year old Rottweilers. The ***** has just been spayed and a couple of stitches have burst. I have had the rest taken out after 10 days. The vet has given me iodine and intibiotic to put on the wound for 2-3 days and if not healed will re-stitch. My problem is the male dog is continually worrying her, trying to lick her and now trying to mount her. I have put him outside but he does not stop barking and crying. Does he think she is on heat with the scent of the wound. How can I stop him.
any new scent or strange smell will often make males do this. keep them separated for a few weeks and this should go away. if they have to be together, keep him on a house leash or crate one of them until the wound is healed.
