When at my worst, my dog got in a fight with another dog. After I got them apart, my dog looked at me and then after a moments consideration, bite me. I used warm water with a large amount of Epsom Salts in to soak the wound. Mass amounts of fibers were coming out of the blood coming from the dog bite and they were swimming back to my arm and trying to go back into my skin. I kept scrapping them away and the Epsom Salts kept killing them. Pretty weird stuff.
