I'd clip any hanging skin.

Next time, don't put peroxide on an open wound. It kills living tissue just like alcohol.

Or is right about the peroxide and clipping the loose skin. It will dry and fall off on it's own if you leave it alone.

I would have recommended putting Cut-N-Heal on it, but, where it is at the dog will take care of it.

Peroxide is fine for the initial cleaning. You just dont want to keep using it during the healing process because it will destroy new skin cell and delay the healing process.
