Hi there, sorry to hear about your dog.

Where is the cut? I understand you can't afford to take her to the ER, but if the cut is bleeding that badly, it is going to need to be sewn up one way or the other, whether at your regular vet tomorrow or the ER tonight.

To stop the bleeding, you can try packing the wound with corn starch or flour, then keeping a pressure dressing on it. Apply the flour or corn starch, then keep pressure on it for as long as needed. Wrap it securely, but be sure not to make it so tight as to cut off circulation.

Try to find a lower cost clinic in your area that will be able to sew her up tomorrow.

Please let me know if you need anything else.
