  • For more serious cuts apply a dressing and take your pet to see a vet
  • For minor injuries, do not leave the dressing on for too long, normally a day is long enough
  • Make sure you don't apply the dressing too tightly as this may cut off the circulation and cause serious problems
  • Apply the dressing over the cut, always start applying the dressing from the furthest point
  • Check the temperature above and below the dressing and check for swelling
  • If in doubt always seek veterinary help
