i always treat puncture wounds as possible infection vectors.  was this very recent?  were the antibiotics for the wound?

Depending on how big the puncture is, a trip to the vet would be a good idea. If the wound is bigger than a grain of rice (long ways) your dog will possible need a suture. If it doesn’t look like it’s healing (scabbing) after a few days; or becomes swollen, the skin gets enflamed and/or a lot of puss is coming from the wound; then you should get it checked out. You will have to watch it.
