• my dog's tail got shut in door, it was bleeding and I dipped his tail in water, the bleeding seems reduce. Is this situation serious? What should I do next. Thank you!

    Hi Ryan,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The bleeding after an injury like this is concerning. This could potentially lead to infection and could even be an underlying sign of a more severe crush injury. Your vet can talk to you more about the severity of the injury and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
