Try to stop your dog’s bleeding and contact an emergency hospital ASAP
- Try to stop the bleeding by using a towel wrapped around an ice pack and applying gentle pressure on the bridge (top) of the nose. Do not tilt your dog’s head upwards.
- If the bleeding stops, it is no longer an emergency, though you should contact your regular veterinarian to make an appointment.
- Contact the vet before travelling to ensure they are able to see your pet. They may also need to give you specific instructions. Some regular animal hospitals may be able to treat your dog as well.
- Do not feed your dog unless the vet advises otherwise. Some diagnostics and medications are more effective if your dog has an empty stomach.
