I have a labrador that got a sore on its lower leg which was not serious. The dog started licking the sore and it got bigger and worse. I now started to cover the sore to help with the healing. How frequently must I change the plaster/dressing on the sore. Does the sore need to " breath" . Currently covering the sore with multiple layers of plaster to keep my dog from getting to the sore. Advice would be appreciated

Dear Jan

Do not try and be a vet, take the dog to a vet.
