Jenica and Diesel were just playing and Diesel scraped some of his fur on his left rear leg off (on a table). It is about the size of a dime and is scraped to the skin. There are a few very fine droplets of blood coming out, but not more than that. Directly after it happened he was whining and would not put his weight on his leg. But after the initial shock (a few seconds later) he was quiet again and walked normally around. Right now he is napping in his bed. I called the vet and they said to keep it clean and watch it. Is there anything else I should be doing?
Thanks in advance!
I would put some neosporine on it.
Keep it clean and neosporin on it. Poor guy.
Poor little one
Awww... poor guy. Just keep an eye on it like the vet said. It'll heal fine.
poor baby, give him our love and hopefully he will heal really quickly xx

Yep - neosporin.

Yep, Polysporin it.
Diesel, hope your leg is all healed by LabFest!!
Thanks everyone. We put some polysporin on it, and are now keeping an eye on it. So far so good. He does not even seem to remember that he injured it, the little goof.
Awww poor baby boy!
