Hi there,First thing to do is to separate the two dogs if you have not already done that; two different rooms, doors closed, for at least 24 hours...Second, I would get an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables, wrap it in a small towel and gently press it onto the side of the face that is bleeding. Try to do this so that your dog isn't scared and try to be gentle; speak softly and don't force it; if he'll take it, give him small treats he likes or let him lick peanut butter off a spoon, while you're holding the ice pack there. If possible, hold it there for at least 5 minutes then repeat 5 minutes later. That should stop the bleeding. If you are still seeing continuous bleeding after that, it might be a much deeper wound and it may require sutures; I would then take him over to the nearest vet ER so that he could be evaluated.Hope this helps!
