How to stop the bleeding?

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Sidney has some scabs on the edges of her ears that we've been dealing with for a couple months.
Today, she opened one of the scabs up again and it is bleeding quite a bit. Applying pressure to it stops the bleeding for a while until she shakes her head and opens it back up. We will be making an appointment to have her seen by her vet tomorrow. Any suggestions on how to stop the bleeding until then? Should I just continue to put pressure on it everytime it starts up again?

Try wrapping her ear up on top of her head so that she can't shake it and make it bleed again. :D

Tried the styptic powder stuff and it did stop the bleeding for a little while. It is scabbed up again at the present time. I'm taking her in to the doctor tomorrow, so we'll see what he says about it. Poor kid.

i have this stuff called dr. gold's super clot, and it is amazing. stopped a cut on the ear from bleeding, and even with head shaking, it didn't open again. it is a gel and easy to apply, and it also is supposed to numb and disinfect the wound. works much better than styptic.

flour will work too. I remember when my hubby cut our gsd's nail too short and he started to bleed, the vet told us to put flour on it.

That worked. I also used that for my friend whose gsds paw was bleeding and worked for him too.
