One of the most common emergency situations faced by dog owners in particular is the cut pad or paw. A sharp piece of glass or metal in the undergrowth can easily cause a deep and nasty cut, and when dog’s paws are cut, they tend to bleed an awful lot!
In a situation like this you have got two main priorities. Firstly you need to try and stop the bleeding as much as you can and secondly you need to get straight down to your vets a.s.a.p.
To try and get the bleeding under control, take off both of your socks. Pull one over the bleeding paw, and then use the other to tie the first sock securely in place. If possible, pass the second sock around the area where the cut is so that it applies firm direct pressure to the wound. Then give your vets a ring to let them know you are on your way, and get straight down there without delay.
