If bleeding doesn’t stop, contact your regular veterinary clinic ASAP
- First thing you should do is keep your dog still and calm. Encourage them to lower their head. Wait five minutes. If the bleeding has stopped, you can monitor at home. If not, you need to contact your regular veterinary hospital.
- Monitor your dog closely for any new symptoms or changes in behavior. If the dog becomes very lethargic or the bleeding worsens, contact an emergency veterinary hospital right away.
- If you are going to the vet soon (i.e. within 12 hours), do not feed your dog, as some diagnostics and medication are more effective if your dog has an empty stomach.
- Keep your dog quiet and calm.
