Thread: stopping dogs ear bleeding?

  1. #1

    Default stopping dogs ear bleeding?

    So Ranger got in a lil tiff yesterday and his ear got bit, right on the tip. Took him to vet who stitched it up. Hes fine but its still oozing a little blood, hes wearing the cone of shame but hates it. being an indoor dog I cant take the cone off because if/when he shakes his head he will paint the wall. Any good ideas to help stop the bleeding so I can get the cone off? Thanks for any advice.

    There may be a capillary that has to be sewn off or clamped to stop the bleeding. Ears are the worst to stop bleeding. It should't still be oozing a lot a day after being stitched, so might need to call your doc.

    Might sound weird, but Sugar can aid healing, and help with clotting of minor wounds; had a Dr. use Sugar packets one time to stop ozzing when we had to sew up a barb-wire incident, it pulls moisture away from the wound, and forms a paste that can help blood clot faster. I think you can use honey as well, to coat a wound, that might help hold a dressing in place.

    Do not take the cone off! Your Vet put it on for a reason, likely so your dog cant scratch at it tearing out the sutures they put in.-Paul
    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.

    This as well as tissue glue. When it a knick won't stop bleeding we use Styptic powder and then paint it with clear nail polish to seal it if we don't have any tissue glue.
