My dog’s cheek was punctured when she went through a barbed wire fence. Does she need a tetanus shot?

Dogs cannot get tetanus. Depending on how bad the puncture is he may need sutures and oral antibiotics?

Sorry, I am wrong, did some more research. It’s cats that do not get tetanus. Dogs can get tetanus although it is most common in humans and horses.
I would call your vet and see if they recommend antibiotics.
