Q. My dog has cancer started bumps small now big was going to put to sleep tomorrow. She scratched the one this morning bleeding bad

Answered By

A. If there is profuse bleeding I recommend you contact your vet or emergency clinic to bring her appointment forward. If it is only dripping slowly at a level where you can actually count the drops rather than flowing you could apply an absorbent dressing (such as a childs nappy) securely against the area and this may enable it to clot - do not apply pressure as the area is likely to be very painful
