Contact an emergency hospital ASAP and do not feed your dog
- Contact the emergency hospital before travelling to ensure they are able to see your pet. They may also need to give you specific instructions. Some regular hospitals may be able to treat your pet.
- Be careful when handling your dog – the affected area is likely painful and they may bite.
- Do not feed your dog. The emergency vet will likely need to sedate your dog, and in these cases it is ideal if your dog doesn’t have a full stomach.
