Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you. You are not the only person who has done this, so don't worry. I have a couple of questions, if that's ok.- is the cut bleeding and if so how much?- where is it on her?- how big is it - how long is it?- is it a flap?- is she bothered by it? Thank you - the extra information will really help. Rosie.
