Bleeding Under the Skin of Dogs
No specific treatment is available for petechiae, ecchymosis, or bruising; it solely depends on the underlying cause. However, in severe cases, your dog may need to be hospitalized, where he will be hydrated and possibly given a blood or platelet transfusion to overcome the crisis.
Living and Management
It is important you do not self-medicate the dog, as it may further exacerbate the problem. Consult a veterinarian and notify him or her if any untoward symptoms, such as subcutaneous hemorrhaging, should occur. Also, minimize the dog's activity level to avoid injury or trauma, which may lead to further bleeding problems.
