Our German Shepherd ran...

Our German Shepherd ran into a door and I think cut the inside of her nose. I was bleeding pretty bad for a minute but seems to be slowing down now. Watch should we do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

She's a 4yr old German Shepherd mix. No health issues

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I can't tell, just can see where it was bleeding from. IT is barely bleeding now. This only happened a couple of min ago

will your dog allow you to hold a wet damp towel to the area?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The bleeding seems to be stopping. What should I watch for to make sure she's ok

Just watch for continued bleeding or restarting of the bleeding.....and I would have your vet look at tomorrow to see if your dog needs sutures.....

She let us hold a paper towel to it but it isn't really bleeding anymore
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok. I will do that. Thank you.

gotcha, can I answer any other questions for you?

Do I need to watch for concussion symptoms or anything else?

Very unlikely......

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok. Thank you so much.

did she hit her head directly or just plummet in with her nose?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I think she went nose first. But I don't know. It was dark. She was trying to run back into the house from the snow outside.

She should be fine with the exception of very sore nose......:))

can I answer any other questions?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Can I give her Novox for the pain? Our older dog takes it so we have it on hand

what does your dog weigh?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Our older dog is 65lbs. The German Shepherd is 80lbs

ah.....what mg novox do you have?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
100mg

ok, you can give your shepherd 1/2 of the 100 mg , but must give with a full meal....

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
That's what the older dog takes, too. I can do that

any other questions tonight?
