How do I stop a bleeding tumor on my dog? - Animal Hospital of Statesville

A tumor that bleeds has often been traumatized by the dog itself, bumped, or something like that. Some tumors outgrow their blood supply and then we'll have a center that weakens in the middle because it doesn't have enough blood, and it ruptures out. Use compresses or wrap it and then seek veterinary attention. We'll talk about options as to whether it can be surgically removed at that point.
