Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Clipping is a handy way to collect and organize the most important slides from a presentation. An improvised muzzle can be made from a coffee can, a kitchen pot, or anything else that can keep the animal from opening its mouth wide enough to get a grip on you.
Screaming and hollering about the driver who didn't stop or anything other situation that contributed to the injury of the animal isn't going to help calm the canine victim.
If you've ever had a dog cut the tip of its ear, you know how difficult it can be to stop the ear from bleeding.
Try to keep the dog from shaking or scratching at the ear.[4] If the dog shakes its head or scratches due to sensations from the wound, he can re-open the wound and cause further bleeding. Another potential complication from vigorous head shaking or scratching is the formation of an aural hematoma, which is a blood clot between the layers of the ear. When the dog feels the bleeding, he is prone to shake his head, resulting in blood splatters up your walls, on the furniture, etc.

Even with pressure and towels to slow down the bleeding, once you remove the towel from his ear and he feels the tingling sense, he will shake his head and start the flow all over again. You want to remove the dog from other sources or excitement such as other dogs or noisy people. Though you can handle most small ear cuts at home, there are some situations where you should allow your vet to treat the dog.
To minimize complications, you can use an Elizabeth collar for two or three days.[6] This will prevent the dog from reaching the ear with a foot. You can minimize the dog’s desire to shake its head by carefully cleaning the ear and ear canal. Keep him away from any of your expensive furniture until you are sure the bleeding has stopped.


With a little bit of research, you can stop the blood flow and keep the dog from re-opening the wound. Provide a couple of treats and get the dog to sit or lay down, so you can tend to the injury. Using a clean fingertip, apply the clotting aid to the wound using gentle pressure.[2] Repeat until the bleeding stops completely. In these situations, continue to apply pressure to the wound as you transport your dog to the clinic. The ear may need sutures or other measures to stop the blood flow and ensure the ear heals properly.
