Geez, take care of that; make sure it doesn't get infected below the skin line. They have a great 'second skin' product now that contains anti-biotics you can put on and leave on.

I had road rash once....almost cost me my leg, according to my doc. The infection moved into my hip joint, and I had to spend a week in the hospital after the surgeon laid it open, and allowed it to 'granulate' closed after all the pus infection was cleaned out. 4x daily soakings and dressing changes!

Cani-biking does seem like it might lead to road rash. Get better soon!

It’s a risky way to get my dog some training. As my Masters project was titled How Exercise decreases bad behavior in children. Can work for dogs at the risk of occasional road rash I guess. I’ll be rethinking this program.

Re thinking would be good idea!

And despite Ms Soupbone's opinion, Sweetie is NOT your child! You're gonna kill yourself!

Well it took 43 times before my first road crash. With more kinetic awareness, I should get to 100 before the next crash :-)

Gee, that's reassuring.
