Dressing a Wounded Paw
Dressing a Wounded Paw Step 1

To bandage the foot, place several sterile gauze pads over the wound.
Dressing a Wounded Paw Step 2

To bandage the foot, hold the dressing in place with one hand. Use the other hand to wrap the tails (ends of the triangle bandage) around the injured part in opposite directions leaving enough of the ends for a knot.

DO NOT tie so tightly that it has a tourniquet-like effect.

Flex the knee and foot several times to be sure the bandage is not too tight and there is good circulation and movement.
