Full Answer

The person treating the wound needs to muzzle and restrain the dog to prevent it from lashing out because of the pain. The next step is to apply pressure directly to the wound to stop bleeding. Shallow cuts can be cleaned with a mild soap and water. Once the bleeding has stopped and the wound has been cleaned, Bactine can be applied before bandaging.
