How to keep hand knit glove from unraveling?

My dog ate the thumb off some hand knit gloves of mine. I can't knit. Should I sew over the loose threads to avoid unraveling?

TIA

    My first thought was super glue..dab some on the ravelly parts. But you might be able to feel the hard glue spot so I don't know.

    Can you just sew the thumb part back on, tucking the loose threads to the inside? Then use some FrayCheck on the loose threads?

    Yeah, I'd just stitch it. And there is a "super glue" type product made for fabrics, if you decide to go that route instead. I think it's called Fray Check.

    ETA: lol @ Spidey's Fray Check rec at the same time as mine. Jinx, buy me a Coke!

    Um, the missing threads have probably been digested already.

    Think I'll go with the sewing.

    Thanks.
