I have a 2 and a half lb yorkie who was accidentaly kicked

This answer was rated:

I have a 2 and a half lb yorkie who was accidentaly kicked in the head several hours ago which caused a large hematoma over her eye, a bloody nose, and a blood clot in her eye. I'm beginning to get really concerned because she's still bleeding a little from her nose. Do I need to take her to an emergency vet?

Dr. Drew :

Hello, thanks for your question today! I am Dr. Drew, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.

Dr. Drew :

I certainly would have to suggest having Cookie examined tonight if possible!

Dr. Drew :

Any time there's an injury on or near the eye, I get very concerned, as delaying treatment can result in permanent damage or loss of vision.

Dr. Drew :

Bleeding from the nose may be of lesser overall concern, though it still worries me because of Cookie's tiny size.

Dr. Drew :

dogs of that size are very fragile -- and it does not take much blood loss to cause a significant crisis of the circulatory system.

Dr. Drew :

so it truly may be a case of "better safe than sorry",

Dr. Drew :

as Cookie's condition could possibly rapidly decline if treatment is not obtained.

Customer:

Thank you Dr. Drew. This is my opinion, too.

Dr. Drew :

you're very welcome -- I do hope that Cookie does well -

Dr. Drew :

let me know if there is anything I can do to be of further assistance :)
