For larger wounds, keep the animal as quiet and still as possible and apply pressure to the wound to help stop blood being lost. Bandage using a clean towel, piece of clothing or bandage material. The bandage should be firm but not too tight.
Do not try to remove any foreign object from the wound as this can sometimes make bleeding worse.
Bite wounds often get very infected as the teeth harbour a lot of bacteria and these get implanted into the tissue around the bite. We often need to give antibiotics for these
Don’t give food or water as your pet may need an anaesthetic to repair the wound and this requires an empty stomach.
