Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog has a tumor on his face. How large is the tumor? How much blood is coming from it (oozing, dripping, flowing?)
The first thing I would try is to put a paper towel over the mass and then an icepack over that and apply pressure to the mass. This should stop the bleeding if it isn't too much. If your pup won't tolerate the icepack, you can try just pressure with your hand. This may take up to 5 minutes to stop the bleeding.
If you are able to get the bleeding to stop, he will then need to wear an e-collar (cone) to prevent him from scratching the mass and making it bleed again.
If you can't get the bleeding to stop with 15 minutes of pressure and ice, you will need to take him to the ER tonight.
Does that help? What other questions do you have?
How is your dog now? Were you able to get the tumor to stop bleeding?
