How to treat a cut?

Wounds to the paws cause rather abundant haemorrhages as this region is richly vascularised.

First of all, stop the blood leak. Instead of a tourniquet it is possible to use a handkerchief, a tie, or a belt. It must be knotted around the animal’s limb above the wound.
It should be loosened every 5 minutes and should not be left for more than half an hour. If it is not possible to immediately resort to the help of your veterinarian, you must cut the hair around the wound and disinfect it thoroughly with hydrogen peroxide. Then dry it and apply an antibiotic ointment before bandaging it.

Once these operations completed, the lace can be removed. If the bleeding stops and the wound is not large, simply change the dressing and renew the application of the ointment every day. Otherwise, the intervention of the veterinarian is essential.
The wounds on the trunk should be washed, disinfected with hydrogen peroxide, and swabbed with ice to stop bleeding.

However, the intervention of the veterinarian is essential in the case of large wounds that require stitches.
